Build me up Buttercup...

Monday, June 21, 2010

These photos were meant to be up last night, but alas my old age pensioner laptop decided that wasn't going to be the case. I really need to get a new laptop, but it will have to wait until after my holiday and once Ive saved up enough to afford one! Anybody any recommendations of makes or brands of good laptops that ain't too pricey let me know! :) My current one is HP but im not fussy!






























Denim Crop Jacket: Zara, Floral Dress: c/o Matalan, nude pumps: River Island, bow belt: Miss Selfridge, little gold bow necklace: c/o Cutiepie Jewellery.


I spent the weekend at the beach with my family, teaching the pugs to swim, munching on ravioli with black olives, watching Sherlock Holmes and realising it wasn't quite warm enough at the beach for this outfit! I love this pretty printed dress above but it wasn't the easiest thing to photograph, with the bright sunshine and the bright white of the dress you cant see the detail of the little smudged floral print. Strapless with a subtle sweet heart neckline and skimming just above my knee I found it very easy to wear. Nipped in at the waist I was going to team it with my large pink bow belt from previous post Playing with pastels, yes i know I have two pink bow belts which is ridiculous but i felt this smaller one sat better with the my little denim jacket.


Are any of you lovely ladies on LookBook? I have had an account with them and Chictopia but after posting a few photos I stopped and used only Chictopia. I didnt find it...as friendly..but Im thinking i didnt really give it a chance? Should i start posting there as well as Chictopia. Love your thoughts on this and Lookbook in general :) x

  3. Such beautiful pictures. You look gorgeous.
    Can't believe the dress is Matalan. Bargain.

    I want piccies of puggles swimming! My dogs love the sea, Doz tries eating the waves and Holly runs through the water, jumping like a spring lamb! :)

    I was invited to Lookbook, signed up but as I'm all about the hair I'm unsure what to do! :)

  6. These photos are so gorgeous! I am loving your outfit!!

    I applied for an invite on Lookbook and I got one about 2 months later. I had really wanted one, and by the time I got the invite, my excitement had faded. And I agree-- Chictopia is more friendly than Lookbook. I also may be saying that, because I have had way more hype on Chictopia. Lookbook seems to be dominated with the cliche-- striped tee, short shorts, tights, super high heels, etc. And those are the looks that receive the most hype.

    Your blog makes me smile,

  8. This looks sooo idyllic/summer.I literally scrolled back up to look at these photos about twice, that's how beautiful these photos are. The dress is so gorgeous and flouncy and I love the cute pink bow belt. You also manage to rock those green-rimmed glasses, serious props.

  15. gorgeous dress!

    LOL I soo did the same! Lookbook isnt as friendly as chictopia - I LOVE my chictopia friends and I love the little bit of banter you have on there! Lookbook is great for inspiration but its not a social as chic and I LOVE to be social!!

  17. Interesting to read the comments on both Lookbook and Chictopia. I personally found both communities unwelcoming and not too friendly so I don't post on there too often anymore.

    On to the fashion...
    I love this outfit, I'd wear every piece in it! So adorable!

  31. Oh! Pugs, Sherlock Holmes? I think I love you! And your outfit, of course... ;)

    I've always had decent experiences on lookbook, but honestly I don't like the "hype" aspect that much, since it seems to be based on how well you know photoshop and how tall and skinny you are. So... who knows. I've never had a negative experience there though, per se.

  41. lovely outfit and photos!

    personally i don't like lookbook and cancelled my account after about a month or so. chictopia and chicismo are much friendlier and welcoming of all different types of people and looks.
