  14. Wiggesley and Pudding? Oh my God, I just died that's so cute. Pugs are the bomb.

  15. I love the names of your dogs. I am so glad you entered that contest!!! i AM GOING TO GO VOTE. Also I think the skir tis probably a little short for me so I would wear stockings or leggings with it and add a little vintage flair. I think I could pull something cute off with it. I love the design on it.

  16. Your dogs are so cute, and I love their names :')

  17. Oh I voted btw, it'd be amazing if you won. Good luck! ♥

  18. I'd wear the skirt with a plain white tank, a vintage-style necklace from such an online shop like Rock'n'Rose or Eclectic Eccentricity. Teamed up with some nude coloured brogues and white lace ankle socks to match the tank.
    Good luck with the competition!

  19. I would wear the skirt high waisted with a white t-shirt with stars coming down from the shoulder tucked in. I'd wear the butterfly necklace that my mum made for me. It would also look really good with my purple tights and my cream court shoes.
    Good luck with the modelling competition! x x x

  20. your pugs are adorable!!
    I think I'd wear it with a white or cream vest top, a long purple cardigan and teal heels! but I think I have so many things to wear with this, I'd have such fun dressing it up!
    all the best with the competition!

  23. OMG your doggies are SO CUTE!!! I love these photos. :)

    And what a fabulous giveaway! That skirt is absolutely GORGEOUS. I have a few bright colored tank tops that would look adorable with it.

    I hope you're having a great week, hon! xoxo

  24. How cute are they!!! Pudding is almost submerged! They need little arm bands!

    I would love this for myself, however I'm a 12/14. But....enter me please, as I have a friend who'd look perfect in this and I'd style her up with a simple striped cotton tee and lace socks and wedges.

  25. I'm a follower!

    It's such a cute skirt and I really want to wear it with white usamimi! (Do you know usamimi? It's like a headband with wire inside. You can style the ends into a rabbit-ear shape.)

    The rest of the outfit would be simple, just a white vest and a denim shirt knotted at the front...with the sleeves rolled up to show some metalic bangles. Shoes...preferably none, because I'm imagining a picnic by a river. But simple sandals or flip flops will do the job :)

  26. Great giveaway! Just became a follow and am now linking to your site from cause it's fab! :)

    I'd team it with blue heels, white v-neck tee with grey boyfriend blazer and accessorise with a long silver necklace and sparkly black clutch.

    I'll vote now, hope u win xx

  37. oh my, that's too funny! and they are so adorable!

    in regards to the skirt, i would TOTALLY wear it high-waisted as i'm really into that at the moment. probably would pair it with my mustard purse, slouchy boots and for the top..i'd go with (that's tough, there are SO MANY color options that would look great!) a tucked in tank top, perhaps made of lace.

    have a great weekend!

  42. Just Voted!!!! Hope you win lovely girl


  43. For the giveaway, I think I'd wear this dress with some unexpected black cowboy boots! My email: Anie.

  44. I think because the skirt is so beautiful, I'd wear it with a simple 3/4 sleeve black V-neck, so that way the focus stays on the skirt! and I'd wear these with some fun wedges to keep the look summer-y.

    Just voted for you in the competition, good luck xx

    At the moment I'm loving the utilitarian look so I'd wear

    this structured top:

    tucked in loosley, a few long necklaces and


    military buckle peep toes to contrast with the floral print and give it an edgier appearance.
