anyway, i decided to debut my Boutique dress today teaming it with a cropped tee by AA. i was so tempted to wear my new pretty vintage coat i mentained yesterday, but it was that horrid sort of dull yet sticky warm British day, so i had to go with my beloved battered leather jacket that i begged my mother to buy me when i was 17. the older it gets the better it seems to look!
(dress - Boutique by Topshop, tee - American Apparel, tights - M&S, coat - vintage, leather jacket - Freemans)also been pining over the new Unique collection at Topshop and spent way to much time last night watching the Unique A/W '08 show over and over again. there's just too much i like!
in particular I've been 'hmming and haaing' over the black peter pan collar dress by Unique for £85. i usually wouldn't dare to even think about buying a dress that costs just under £100 but with my very useful Topshop staff discount, it worked out at just over £60. i worked out that's a pair of jeans and a top, or a very good drunk night out in Belfast.... so i thought what the heck, i'll order it!i don't own a pair of the sell out Unique trousers but I'm thinking i can maybe team the dress with a pair of glossy leggings from AA or some sheer black tights. will definitely have to accessorize with lots of necklaces to toughen the peter pan collar up.hoping i don't look too girlie in it?
will let you know when it arrives :)
