NYE

Dress- Meadham Kirchhoff for Topshop
Scarf- DIY
Shoes- Zara & DIY

Please excuse the instax photo/dodgy face/awkward pose but I can't find one of my camera lens- woopsy! This is by far my favourite outfit of 2013 so thought it was a good time to wear it. 

I can't put into words how much I'm in love with this dress. I was gutted when I saw the price tag when it first came out but I had a feeling it was going into the sale and working at Topman you kinda know when the Topshop sales going to be. So on that monday morning, as fate has it, my cat woke me up at 4am just meowing to herself so I thought I better check just in case it had gone into sale and praise the lord it had. I've never been so grateful for my cat waking me up at stupid o'clock in my life. Anyway, it had gone down from £290 to £170 and with my staff discount to £127 so considering I am going to keep it forever and wear it all the time I thought that wasn't too bad!

I'm glad to be saying goodbye to 2013 as it was the saddest year ever after losing my Step Dad last month but I really feel 2014 will be a happier, healthier and more positive year for me and my Mum.

Hope you all have a fun NYE and happy new year!

  17. it's a gorgeous dress, and looks fabulous on you! i wonder if you don't mind telling me, what does it say on the tag? 100% acrylic yarn? i'm curious because i'm a crocheter and i might want to attempt something like this if i get ambitions. thanks a million x
