You stood there so brave, you used to be shy.

Hi guys, today's post is an outfit-of-the-day: it feels like it's been a while! The past few weeks have been so hectic and the Easter holidays aren't proving to be as relaxing as I'd hoped - I feel like I've barely stopped. I've been working hard on my illustrations for uni, but I'm making room for play as well as work so this is what I wore yesterday for a few casual afternoon drinks that turned into dancing to T Rex at midnight in the only bar in town that was still open. These things happen... or maybe just to me. Either way, I hope you like it!

Dress: Rare London
Boots: New Look (similar here)

I can't get over how amazing the sale section on the Rare London website is and I got this beauty for £10 - there's an offer where if you spend £50 you get £10 off and free delivery, so I massively recommend checking it out and seeing if you can pick up a few bargains. It's nice to be able to buy really high-quality dresses at a fraction of the price and I was even more pleased with this when it arrived. I also picked up the ring I'm wearing in these photos (which I am in love with, as were all the guys I was hanging out with - they all wanted to try it on which was perplexing but quite funny!) The only downfall to this dress is that the back is quite low, I seem to have a thing for buying dresses from Rare that have low backs (remember this one?) but they're so pretty I can't help it! Looking back at the photos I think it needs a wider belt to define the waist so I look slightly less chunky, but that's one to remember for next time. Find this on Lookbook here...



I also wanted to share some local talent here - I'm lucky enough to know some pretty talented people and it seems only right to show them off here every now and again! Previously I've mentioned a local band The Bloody Thumbs (and wore their shirt) and today I wanted to share a film by Pork Chop Pictures. If you have nine and a half minutes free, check this out - these guys always make me giggle and their films just get better and better.


Can you believe it's Friday already?! I feel like I've only been home for a few days but it's been almost a week. In fact, on that note, I'd better get on with some painting... leave me some comments to come back to - what you think of the outfit, and if you like the film (I know you will!)
