Better In A Black Dress - finding hidden treasures after a wardrobe clearout!

My wardrobe at times feels like the entrance to Narnia. It's not pretty or filled with snow, but can sometimes feel quite cavernous for something so cheap and small! I recently decided to do a full on wardrobe raid, and pulled everything out which included the bags and bags of items neatly folded and stacked at the bottom. It was an utter revelation going through them - I discovered long forgotten gems which I'd packed away for being too tight, and despite having not lost any weight, fell utterly in love with them again. Even though my body's stayed the same, my mind has clearly changed as I'm less bothered about dresses being clingy. If anything, I'm starting to embrac it! Without spending a single penny, I managed to add three dresses and two cardigans to my regular wardrobe, and this is the first of them!




Long / short hem heart print dress: Primark.
Belt: Yours Clothing.
Necklace: Tatty Devine.
Cardigan: Primark.
Leggings: F&F True.
Boots: Primark.
Roses: Pearls & Swine.
Triangle Ring: Pilgrim via ASOS. 
Moonstone Ring: Vintage.
Bracelets: Vintage.
Bag: Vintage Cine film Case.
Nails: Maybelline Color Show Nail in Electric Yellow / 749.

The heart print is super kitsch, but the high neckline and dipped hem smarten it up. I cannot believe I've let it languish in my wardrobe unloved for so long as I know this is going to be a firm summer favourite for me! I kept it simple with a monochrome colour palette and added a dash of colour in with bright nails and bright lips. I wore this yesterday for a Sunday pub lunch with friends, and am so happy that I've re-discovered it!

Until next time,
