A Black and White Friday.


I instantly liked this dress in the thrift store not only because of the pattern but also because of the ruffle-y collar. I really love an interesting collar. I decided to try a monochromatic set of pictures today (still no sun) but the colours in the dress are really subtle greens, golds, and reds. I need to expand my tights collection as I had to go tight-less because none of mine matched. 

I have my manfriend's Christmas work party tomorrow and I still don't know what to wear! I'm going to check my mail right before it closes today so hopefully my Ruche purchases have arrived and make my choice much easier. 

Have a good weekend!

  7. Brrrr, hope you get some more tights soon! Hope your Ruche purchases arrived, it's always so hard knowing what to wear for work dos! That dress is super duper, hope to see it in its full technicolour glory soon!
    PS- after your comment I realised that I never really go anywhere in the UK even though it is all relatively easy like you say. I need to get out of London more!
