old favourite


Dress – Barbara Hulancicki for Topshop, Belt – Topshop, Shoes and Bag – Urban Outfitters


I picked up this dress via ebay a long time ago and it’s one of those things I’ll never sell on. I rarely wear it but it’s still a favourite! I could only find one two sizes too big so the shoulders do look a little off balance and its a big no without a belt but I think I actually prefer it paired with a belt and the bigger size means that I don’t have to compromise on length too much – it is embarrassingly short!!

Not too much to report on today – I’ll be slowly packing up my room over the next week, then have a long weekend in Liverpool to look forward to!

  1. I have this dress too :) it really is short isn't it? I tend to wear mine with leggings. You look great, I could actually do with a size bigger as I have a Small. You look great in this dress :)

  13. Oh gosh I remember that dress being in Topshop years ago, loved it then and still do now. Looks ace on you. I didn't even notice it was 2 sizes too big until you mentioned it, the wonder a belt makes! Oh and yeah I'd love to somehow get into window displaying or just visual merchandising in a fashion environment. I just need some confidence to sort of be assertive, when people see me they instantly know I'm shy and it's never a good impression really in interviews it seems. xx

  18. I've been wanting one of these dresses forever, its so pretty! I look on ebay all the time, but I always seem to miss out on my size... I might think about sizing up though after reading what you've said!

    I'm a new follower too :) xx

  20. The dress looks great on you and with the belt you would never know it's not actually your right size.
