Friday Frocks #160 - The devil's in the details.

Lately, I feel like I've been wearing the same things over and over which is partly why I haven't done an outfit post in a while. Instead, I've become a little more interested in the details that make an outfit - good old accessories. So I'm going to let them take centre stage in this post, for once.

Sunglasses - I'm still on the hunt for the perfect pair of rounded cat-eyes, and these Firmoo sunnies come pretty close. They're super comfy and well-made, and have pretty much been superglued to my head this summer.

Bracelet - How pretty is this Henryka bracelet? It's got little beads of amber, encased in ladybird shaped silver casings. I don't wear bracelets a lot, so I always bring them out for special occasions like weddings and fancy parties, and this is definitely my new favourite.

Shoes - These aren't too exciting, but that's the point of a classic, right? I wear these Betty London heels a lot - I even wore them when I was bridesmaiding for my best friend last year! They're pretty comfortable, although I find that my feet slip out sometimes so I've added heel grips and party feet and now they're perfect!

Watch - I'm more than a little in love with my new rose gold Citizen watch from the DRIVE collection. It's a lot chunkier than I'd usually wear, but it's so pretty that it's still ladylike. Plus, totally blingy - check out the sparkles!

Dress - Dorothy Perkins via eBay
Sunglasses c/o Firmoo
Bracelet c/o Henryka

Watch c/o Citizen DRIVE

Dress - Weeeell... I have to give it a little attention. The dress I'm wearing in this post is one of my favourite summer dresses, an eBay bargain last year that was originally from Dorothy Perkins, and it's already had a few outings on the warmer days of this year. The only problem is that the skirt is super full, and we've had some slightly windy days lately...

What accessories are you loving lately?


  1. Wow. Thanks so much for this. When I said, earlier this week, that I hoped for more Friday frocks I wasn't expecting this. It's beautiful and I love it. You are so lucky to have such lovely things. And your legs look good without tights too.

  3. I seem to be using my new handbag a lot. Like, usually I get bored of bags after the first couple of days, but this one's been going strong for two weeks now!


Comments make my day. :) I love you.
