oh you pretty things

1. the beautiful Claire from Young Shields
2. polka dot dress from Whistles

3. Alexa Chung (Fashion Spot)

cravings for a 'pretty' dress have been floating around my head for a while but my fear of anything dainty or cute has stopped me doing anything until now. that was until i spotted the spotty dress from Whistles, i pondered over it for a few weeks and when i went in to the store today they only had one left, in my size, i had to buy it! i thinking about teaming it with my Emma Cook creeper boots, not quite ready for the 'pretty' look yet...

Emma cooks and that dress will look AMAZING together, take a picture of it for us! :) Love the boater hat on the young shields lady too. xx

Ooh I'm sure that'll look great, can't wait to see an outfit post (: x

That will look gorgeous :) I'm still so jealous of your emma cooks, I still searched them on ebay and see the odd pair going for like £600 - and I still consider it :/ xx

Haha yesss I tried on that dress too, but I didn't buy it even though it was so nice. Whistles has so many gorgeous things at the moment, its totally killing me.
