Muddling through

This isn't going to be a very coherent post today. My brain is addled by drinking copious amounts of Tuaca on Saturday night. It all started off with a BBQ on Hove Lawns late afternoon, and wound up with us getting in at 6am from a house party.


My Dorothy Perkins delivery did turn up on Friday, three out of four items were lovely, the fourth was a bad fit so is going back. The bigger size one DID fit, which made me feel like a fatty but as Alex said, DP has weird sizing.

I wore the dress on Friday night to go out for sushi and cocktails.

Dress - DP, Jacket - Forever 21, Necklace - Boots

Yum! Love sushi.

I'll show the other DP dresses as and when I wear them. My other recent buys are:

Cute shoes for £4 from the vintage market that I mentioned in a recent post.

This amazing bag from ASOS that I bought immediately after seeing on Bethany's Arched Eyebrow blog (a new fave, check it out). ASOS had free next day delivery so after buying it Friday afternoon I received it at five to nine on Saturday morning! I was very pleased (once I had gone back to bed for a few hours). I bought a cute spotty dress too.

I'll leave you with a lovely Brighton picture that I took on Saturday, and the hope that I have made sense so far.

I LOVE the colour of your blazer with the blue dress! You look lovely & the ASOS bag is gorgeous.
Brighton looks so nice & sunny! I would love to visit again.

You're not a fatty at all! Ignore the size labels. If it fits and looks good (which this very definitely does) then that's all that matters.

Lordy, 3 out 4 things fitting from an internet order would be a resounding success for me - I usually have to try on loads and loads of clothes before I'm happy with anything. Probably why my wardrobe is so paltry. Sizing everywhere is weird, I have things I wear which range from a 8 to a 16 - all labels lie!

subject: Paper Dress Vintage Collection Launch

If you're fed up of uncovering a gem in your favorite vintage
boutique which fails to fit, then this is the collection for you. If you're
a fan of quality vintage fabrics and quirky original trimmings, then this
is the collection for you...
The Paper Dress Vintage collection transforms nine iconic, stylish shapes
from the past 80 years into a bespoke range of elegant vintage garments
which could slot into any ladies' wardrobe as perfectly now as the decade
in which they were conceived.

Rare and exclusive vintage fabrics are used in the collection,
adorned with vintage trimmings, all sourced from extensive treasure
hunts and created using hand-crafted, traditional techniques to ensure
the highest quality throughout. The collection is unified in it's
wearable nature; from the elegant 70’s-inspired Kimono Maxi to the
high waisted 40’s Pencil Skirt, each piece has been designed with the
modern figure in mind, using impeccable tailoring and intelligent pattern
and fabric choice to elongate, emphasise and flatter today’s woman
and her body.

Each piece will be totally unique, though the basic shapes will
remain the same, and incredibly environmentally friendly. The collection
is available in 3 sizes: Small (8/10), Medium (10/12) and Large (12/14).Or alternatively you can come in to the studio and have items made to measure.

check out the designs at

or come down to our event on Thursday night in shoreditch, London

You definitely don't look like "a fatty" to me, it's the label that at's fault, not you.
Loving that bag, what a beauty.
