I have a new dress! It’s from a brand called Quiz, which I’m not too familiar with, but I popped into their High Wycombe store while sale shopping, and liked a lot of their stuff. The dress I bought is a dark red skater dress in a heavy, textured sort of material – it’s not on their website anymore, but it’s worth checking out their sale anyway.
Here it is on its own, then, just so you can see what it’s like. A skater dress is pretty much a staple for me, and dark red is one of my favourite colours, so this is a very typical element of my wardrobe… Want to see how I can style it? Continue reading
Please bear with the quality of some of these photos, as you can see, they were taken at twilight and in the rain, so some are a little blurry/over exposed… Still, I’m so pleased with this look!
Earlier this month, Boyfriend and I went to my college’s ball, which was very exciting, and we had a little photoshoot beforehand thanks to our wonderful friend Ele, of Curious Magpie Photography. Ele took photos of us last year, too, and she is really an amazing photographer – I thought I’d show you how lovely some of these are!
We were lucky enough to have really nice sunshine on the day of the ball, and Corpus Christi gardens made a wonderful backdrop.
What I like about taking photos with Ele is that she really manages to capture us as a couple – there’s some really gorgeous proper portraits, like above, but plenty where we’re laughing or pulling silly faces, and we just really look in love with each other. Continue reading
This time, spring clothing and ball gowns! …plus one more little beauty buy. I can’t help myself!
This weather is driving me mad – it’s cold, but it’s spring! I’m ready to move on with my wardrobe, but reluctant to do a huge shopping trip just in case it never gets warm again.
Without further ado, then, here is what I bought to ease me into April dressing. The first three items I bought are from H&M in High Wycombe – does anyone else find that some branches are full of things you love, while you can’t find anything in others? I never find anything I like in Reading’s H&M, but the High Wycombe one is a treasure trove for me! I’ve tried to find these items on the website to link for you, but it is a nightmare with no search function, so I’ve only been partially successful.
