Hi everyone! It feels like a very long time since I last posted an outfit. I’ve been very unlucky with technology lately; my camera charger is lost and my computer screen is cracked so it is been very difficult to blog. Also, I have been incredibly busy for the last number of months. Without a doubt this has been the most stressful time of my whole life. There is just too much happening at once; preparing for my wedding, finishing my law degree, finding a place to live and dealing with some personal issues from the past. I’m supposed to be finding a job too but that’s unfortunately become a low priority right now. I’m a very anxious person to start with so all this stress hasn’t really helped my situation. I have a lot of support from family which is great; I don’t know what I’d do without them but I’m still finding it hard. I’ve just have to make sure I don’t lose sight of the bigger picture, even when I feel overwhelmed and I want to give up on myself; one day my life will get better. So I apologise if I have a lower presence in the blogsphere for the next couple of months. I still love you all and your support means so much!
Despite my current situation, dressing up is one of the few things that makes me happy; whenever I have a bad day the power of a pretty dress rarely ceases to amaze me. I know I’ve said this a lot but this is definitely one of my favourite dresses. I’ve worn it a few times now, most recently to a family event on Saturday night. It combines two of my favourite elements of fashion- lace and peter pan collar! I will never understand the absence of peter pan collars in the shops; I seem to only find them in the kids section. So when I see one I usually snap it up immediately. I think this dress is totally reflective of my style since it is so girly. I love it! I thought it was very lucky that my shoes matched so well. I’ve mentioned a few times that, out of my entire shoe collection, these are undoiubtdely my favourite. It’s such a coincidence that the dress and shoes are the exact same colours and of very similar pattern. I like adding touches of red to give it a vintage feel. I tried to achieve this with red lipstick and red nails; maybe a red belt could be a consideration for next time.
