Day 782 - Spotlights Don't Do You Justice Baby

Shoes: Black knee high boots 'Jupiter' Irregular Choice 

I didn't expect to fall in love with this dress, in fact I didn't pay much attention to it at all when it first came out.  Then I noticed a couple of people wearing it on their blogs and decided it was really pretty, so recently ordered it along with the pansy 'Betty' dress I'd wanted so much.  Turns out, when you slip this dress on, it just feels so good.  It's comfortable and flattering and I've really fallen in love with it.  I wasn't sold on the print at first either (I'm usually a floral or spots or lace person) and I thought the shimmering gold threading throughout was a little much, but it's really lovely.  There's also cute little lace inserts on the shoulders.  Like I'd mentioned, I had an early start yesterday, so the majority of photos I took had to be deleted because my eyes were almost shut in them (it was rather amusing).  As expected it was lashing with rain the entire day, so I dressed weather appropriately (as sensible and 'rain-proof' as my shoes get) and was all bundled up with coat, gloves, hat and scarf too!

Wearing: 'Celia' dress Swan by Clements Ribeiro, flying pig necklace gift.
Fit: True to size (although I opted for a size up purely for leg room) but the foot is a little large on me. Full length zip. Heel just over 4 1/4" and small concealed platform.
Comfort: No issues.
