dolls house





dress: primark | cardigan: peacocks | necklace: accessorize | ring: topshop | bag: ebay

Just a quick post today - I've spent all day tidying my room (and getting distracted and not actually getting much done...) and now I've only got 1 hour left to have dinner and paint my nails before I have to leave for work. Wednesdays are always the worst, I'm off Monday and Tuesday so Wednesday feels like the start of the week to me!

This dress is one of the new pieces I bought last week. The only thing that annoys me is that it has a slip dress underneath and it's SO TIGHT. I almost cut off my circulation trying to get it over my chest - and that's me buying it a size larger than usual. I've had this problem before with Primark dresses. It's like they give you a size 10 dress, with a size 6 slip underneath. However it's such a lovely colour and goes perfectly with my cardigan so I couldn't not buy it. I know you're probably sick of the sight of this cardigan by now but it goes with absolutely everything and I can't help but wear it so often. Every girl should have a burgundy cardigan.

My 500 followers giveaway ends at 6pm on Sunday so there's only a few days left to enter if you haven't already!

  35. Laura - Thank you! I'm really liking the mustard too, it's so bright for me! x

    Kate Louise - Oh god isn't it so cute?! I just couldn't resist buying it even though I have too many necklaces as it is! x

    StyleFrost - Thank you :) They are really random, but I suppose all shops are! x

    Sophie - Jewellery is my 'thing' haha, I could go wild buying jewellery! x

    Jennie - Thank you :) I have Primark clothes in sizes 8-20 - it's crazy! x

    Michelle - I really wanted to the white and rust coloured ones but my store only had this one! They're so simple yet look really nice on. I couldn't believe it when I first opened the necklace, instantly decided I had to buy it there and then :D x

    Gem - Is there anything that doesn't go with my cardigan? :D I might just buy a new slip like Rani suggested x

    Gem - You should get it - the colour would look amazing on you! x

    Stundon - I want the dress in every colour I think haha ;) x

    Carrie - Thank you lovely :) x

    Krissy - It's gorgeous! I love everything in Accessorize. I could spent literally hours in there looking at everything :) x

    Pinklittlebean - I put a link to the bag in my post, just under the photos. x

    Summer - I love that a lot of Primark things are looking more expensive now a days! :) x

    Eloise - I'm lucky that my local Primark is massive. It's actually a bit too big actually :/ x

    Trinket box - Thank you :) The necklace is getting a lot of compliments hehe x

    Hannah - Thank you! :)

    Vicky - Ooh what colours did you buy? I think I'll buy another version if I see one x

    Maria - Thank you, the necklace is my new favourite! :D x

    Jen - Thanks :) x

    Steph - The cardigan was only £5 in the sale - amazing! Thank you so much x

    Raffles Bizarre - It's lovely, right?! :D x

    Bee. - They're terrible for sizing. The slip isn't even stretch at all and it's all attached to the dress which makes it almost impossible to put on! :/ x

    Natalie - Aww, thank you that's such a nice thing to say! :) x

    Amy - Thank you so much, so kind! x

    Vicki - Ahh really?! What a coincidence! My toes are painted the same way too :O !! x

    Jade - I REALLY wanted the rust one! I'll swap you? ;) x

  39. I brought this dress yesterday in the bright pink/watermelon colour. I do love it (feel like im on safari!!) but as you said, the slip underneath is so weird?! Why can they not just do them in normal sizes?!
    Love the outfit doll :)
