smockin' hell

29/09/2013


what i'm wearing:
h&m pork pie hat (only £7.99)
primark ankle boots
vintage bag

say hello to my newest purchase from topshop courtesy of my good ol' store card. i don't know if you have noticed but i made a few little changes to my blog layout; it's now wider meaning i can pop on bigger (and better quality) pictures. the only downside to this is all my other blog posts previous to this one don't really look right but just go with it for now as it would took me far too long to get the original pictures, re-edit and resize them and upload them again. so you should know by now if you read my blog quite frequently i'm a big fan of smock dresses, so this is just another one to add to my collection. i got a size 8 which is still pretty generous as i don't care about clothing looking fitted so i look "thinner". some people might think smocks are frumpy and unflattering but when i've had a huge lunch left with a food baby and you can't see it, who will be laughing now? i'm going to see miles kane on tuesday night so this is what i'm planning on wearing, with a leather jacket of course. hope you like :)
