A flashback!

Hi all! I have been missing doing my outfit/fashion posts lately - and it's because of two (maybe three!) reasons...

1. I've been making more of an effort to go to the gym, so by the time I get home I'm in my joggers!
2. I keep forgetting (like on Weds for Weds Wardrobe Challenge - I'd participated and everything!).
3. It's been so cold that my outfits aren't always THAT exciting!

So in the meantime, here's a bit of a flashback. I love this dress so I thought I would share it with you all!
I bought it in a vintage warehouse in Spitalfields, London, a couple of years ago. Bows - yep. Stripes - yep. Puffy skirt - loved it all. And it was 25 POUNDS! OMG bargain!!

In November the bf and I went to the annual Hall of Fame gala dinner at the university where we work. Here are the pics!

Do you have a favourite outfit that you save for special occasions?

    I don't have a favourite dress that I wear for special occasions - I usually go and buy a new one for some reason, haha.

  11. Sadie,
    The dress is FANTASTIC!!! What a great deal you got on it. I use to have a favorite dress but as I my weight continues to go down my favorites don't fit. I hope to buy a whole new wardrobe next spring... HOPE IS GOOD! :)
    ....... Btw, have you created anything with some of the supplies I sent yet? Can't wait to see what you make with some of it.
    Hugs,
    AJ
