Day 869 - I Keep Looking For Something I Can't Get


Shoes: Blue floral 'Prom Princess' Irregular Choice 

You all know I'm a huge fan of the H by Henry Holland range at Debenhams and a couple of months ago during a promotion, I sent Mum off to buy a couple of things for me. She phoned to say they had this dress I'm wearing today and that she didn't think I'd seen it before and would I like it. It wasn't on the website at the time (highly unusual that my local store gets anything before the website), so she described it to me and obviously I got it. It's a little tight on the bust, but I can still breathe! I love the way the collar sits and I don't have many pastel or pale coloured dresses do I? I've been looking for a nice day to wear it and with beautiful skies today (and a whole lot of wind) it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I can think of loads of shoes that will go with it and was actually torn with which pair to choose today. I'd rescued this pair from the wardrobe last week and would love to wear them more, but never have the perfect outfit for them. I think I may have found the right dress ; )

Wearing: Blue broderie anglaise dress H By Henry Holland, leggings and cardigan Primark, 'Nikita' sunglasses Tom Ford.
Fit: True to size, you don't need to unfasten the strap or bow to get them on. Roughly 4 1/2" heel.
Comfort: No issues with these.

  1. HOW nice is that dress- I love it- I'd have bought that too if I'd have seen it! I love the Henry Holland range but whenever I see something I want, I am usually on a 'I MUSTN'T buy anything" drive so I don't usually get anything!x

    1. I saw loads of new things when I was there last week (again!), but I have no money for anything new and I did get loads of SS13 stuff when I got this dress, so don't really need any more : )

  3. I love/adore/need those shoes! They are so perfect. I saw the photo you posted on facebook and couldn't wait to get home from school to read the post:) The shoes go very nicely with the dress (though I would have worn a different sweater, I usually match my outer layer with my tights. Yeah, basically all I wear are black sweaters :) but then the pearl detailing on the sweater is also really pretty.

    Btw do you get hoe highs? I thrifted three pairs of shoes today and am now literally buzzing!

    2. Aw, thanks. I'm trying so hard to get out of only wearing a black cardigan! It's all I ever wear, so I bought this green one to ease myself into another colour. I wanted to keep the outfit a little more summery than pairing it with black too.

      Can you believe I've only bought the Irregular Choice bunny shoes this whole year? Shoe shopping has been halted for me completely, my wishlist is building!!

  4. Sadly my local Debenhams doesn't stock the H! range, so I don't often see the things in real life, as it were. They do get some pretty prints, but the dresses are always shorter than I'd like.

    I love these shoes, must dig mine out again soon, they're very summery!x

    1. That sucks! Mine has a good enough selection, sometimes there are things I can only get online though. Yeah I think all my H dress are leggings-compatible and too short for tights/bare legs.

      I just found a yellow pair of these shoes in my cupboard, had completely forgotten I won them on ebay last summer!
