Dotty For Polka Dots - New Look Curve


I have a few easy go to wear feel good dresses, but this red polka dot New Look number is probably the first one I grab every time. It's not especially fancy, but there is something so classical about the shape that it can be dressed up and down with ease. Plus I feel like a ladybug every time I put it on, and that always gives me a tiny burst of serotonin.

Last Days Of Summer


It seems ridiculous writing this blog post as we are now smack bang in the middle of October, but the weather still has some warmth and it still seems to be a case of light layers rather than heavy coats.

So Hi There


So to let you know how far behind I am with writing blog posts, these photos were taken some time in September 2020. It's not that I lost interest in writing about fashion, but more that with everything going on in the world, it just felt incredibly frivolous.
