Dresses

I've been slightly needing some retail therapy for a while, it's slightly hard when your meant to be saving money. Its hard to make myself buy things or treat myself when im saving, i think I make myself mad when I do that though. I pushed together the honeymoon, moving to America and treating myself into looking for a dress. There seems to be absolute tonnes of dresses available on the high street at the moment - most at a decent price which makes it even better, I was just tempted into New Look because I hadn't been for ages and it was my lunch break and I had to, just had to get out of work.
clock wise from left - Mela loves London £24.99, Pussycat £25, floral belted sundress £27.99
Ended up taking three to the changing rooms - all three I could of brought if I was feeling crazy and richer. I'm still getting use to seeing me in a dress, wearing them on holiday helped, but if you'd of said even a year ago i'd be openly aiming for and looking to buy a dress i'd of thought you had me confused for another girl. My choice all came down to texting Joe "floaty or tight" - I was stick between the blue dress and the white and black butterfly.

And the result;
I loved this sheer whitey cream dress on the hanger, it hangs gorgeously and looks pretty decent on if I say so myself. I love the floatiness of the sheer fabric covered underneath with a little slip. The butterflies colour varies in strength when it moves with the light. It'll be a bit posh for everyday wandering and car sitting when it comes to the road trip but it'll be perfect for visiting museums or towns. I just get paranoid about how my stomach looks in dresses - they tend to cling to it and reveal that i'm not as skinny as i'd like to be. Or how I was when I was at university - those where the days of not having to eat my mams (not overly perfect and or nice or healthy) food.But that deserves a rant in its own right.

If your a keen New Look shopper and/or fancy a bargain, their magazine is offering a 20% discount voucher running between the 20th May until June 5th in store. Worth grabbing if you want to stock up on some things for summer!
