Denim Ruffle Loveliness

Quite frankly I was getting cheesed off of not being able to post my outfits because the boyfriend is away and I have no-one to photograph me. So I've resorted to self-mirror pics in my bedroom! I hope you still get to see the outfit in a decent way, as I had trouble getting good shots (the main reason being because our wardrobe is an antique Italian wardrobe and the mirror in it is very old and not too clear). Other problems I had were that the bed ends just before the mirror, so I had to squeeze in front to take a reasonable shot, AND to top it off, it was a grey, dull day so the lighting was pants

Anyway - about the outfit! I bought this denim dress in the summer as I thought it was really cute! When I went back to Wales where it was mid-winter, I paired it with tights, boots and a cardigan for extra warmth (and also wore it with a short fur jacket, but it hasn't reached that coldness here yet). So this is how I wore it again this week.


Dress, Tempt; Shrug, Belt and Tights, Primark; Boots, Matalan.

Just to give you an idea of the area I was working with!!
So after five days of the boyfriend being away, I've still got five to go. I'm enjoying catching up with friends, shopping, eating out and watching plenty of Desperate Housewives (LOVE IT!), but I'm missing having someone to come home and actually TALK TO! It's weird!!! But only 5 days left....


  1. cute shoes! and the ruffles on the denim dress are super sweet!

  2. Love your boots, lady!

    I have a Free People give-away on my blog if you haven't already entered!

  3. OMG, I think I owned a skirt alot like that in the 80s... late 80s. Super fun!

  4. i love it! i also am a big fan of making my dresses last well into winter by wearing tights, boots, socks, cardis - ie whatever the hell i need to to still be able to wear it but keep warm!

    oh and just found out gossip girl is finally coming back on in the uk this week after a mid season break to rival that of desperate housewives :-)


  5. Fun photos!

  6. Loving the shoes! I struggle to take my own pics too- not quite confident enough to stand in the street with a tripod!! xxx

  7. Oh my goodness, I just love those boots! The top cap is absolute perfection :) I completely understand your desperation to post photos, too... I can't imagine going ten days without a photographer! Good for you for working through it in your own way :)

  8. love the ruffles on the dress so cute! oh and six flags is like this massive amusement park just full of roller coasters! hope you enjoyed your weekend!

  9. I feel like I'm the other way around, having just left my boyfriend for two weeks. Good thing he's not a fashion blogger (haha!!)

    I love the boots, they really look great with the denim dress!
