Day 904 - You Want Me Down On Earth, But I Am Up In Space


Shoes: Black patent heart peep toe Moschino Cheap & Chic 

I felt like a little matryoshka dolly in this outfit on Friday! I've had the dress for years but haven't worn it for a while, so was surprised to find it still fits (I'm hit or miss with New Look). I purchased it from the Tall range so that it would be a decent length. It was really too hot for a cardigan, but as any large busted lady will know, a cardigan is pretty necessary when it comes to sleeveless dresses. If I get a dress to fit across my chest, it gapes at the armholes (exposing oodles of bra) and is usually too big on the waist. This dress isn't actually too bad, but I wanted my shoulders protected from the sun even if I was only going out for a few minutes (plus it partly covered my heat rash/clawed chest). So I found this little cape I'd bought ages ago in the Glasgow Miss Selfridge. I'm sure it was about £30 at the time which I thought was extortionate for what it is, but I fell in love with it and treated myself. I call it my 'Dr Quinn' cape, because it feels very much like a period piece. Anyway, I thought it looked great with this dress and paired with my little fluffy heart shoes. Random fact, in my late teens/early 20's I used to love wearing these sort of Gothic Victorian inspired pieces with high necks, frills etc.

Wearing: Striped floral dress New Look, net underskirt Primark, frilled cape Miss Selfridge, red belt gift, Mischief sunglasses Irregular Choice.
Fit: 4 1/4" heel, a little generous in the heel.
Comfort: No issues with these and easy to walk in.
