overexposure

30/01/2014




the simpler outfits are always my favourite. i understand smock dresses are not for everyone, as they're so big and oversized but i absolutely adore them. there's something great about not having to worry about your figure when you wear a smock. my boyfriend absolutely hates this dress but when i saw it on the ASOS website i desperately wanted it but as i was skint i had to leave it :( lucikly a week later they had 20% off and voila it is now mine! it's a pretty thick and heavy material but that just means it's good quality and it isn't going to blow up with a gist of wind. I think the shade of blue really compliments my new daniel footwear suede boots. i have to be super careful with these as i'm horrendous for ruining material shoes which is why i stick to chunky boots. they are the perfect balance of dainty but edgy. what do you think? p.s if you're from manchester keep an eye out for me as i'm there for the day today!

i finally got round to uploading my next youtube video which is the TMI tag, here's the link if you'd like to check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upd_3BC1Vds x
