Waterfalls and plaited hair...

Sunday, May 15, 2011

Back from the coast..a short but sweet trip..with nice food, great company and unfortunately non stop rain...
The final installment of photos from my trip to Connemara and Clonbur..
This dress was a steal at only 16.99 from my favourite little boutique Liberty Blue it was in sale hence the bargain price..this is the first time Ive worn in it and Im just not sure about it.. the wide straps and folded ruched-ness (yea I make up words often to explain myself) over the bust I think would be really flattering on someone with a' ech hem'...large cleavage but my little C cups get lost in all the fabric and I think & I cant believe Im saying this on the Internet for who ever to read, it makes them look kinda droopy.. lol..
Although this dress does have a lot of good things about it too, the sweet strawberry print is adorable and Im such a sucker for prints.. The length is great too and I love the little lace trim around the bottom. Its a heavy enough fabric that you could wear it well into autumn too.

My heidi style plaits didnt last all day and I soon took them down in favour of simple plaits..

Dress: Liberty Blue, Cardigan: H&M, Wedges: Limited Edition M&S, Locket necklace: Topshop, Black stone ring: Asos, Watch: Vintage Gucci.

So I am almost at a staggering 1500 followers...which is MAD! When I started this blog I never thought anyone would read it, i started it more as a diary for myself than anything else..So for it to come so far and become such a big part of my life is crazy but such a blessing.
To say THANK YOU to everyone Im planning a huge giveaway...There will be lots of prizes and lots of chances to win so make sure you keep an eye out!! :) xo

  16. See, I think that kind of dress flatters someone with smaller breasts. I would find it too "in your face" with huge ole jugs..hehehe..that was a tasteless joke. But anyways, I think you wore it very well!!
