Verdurous Glooms and Winding Mossy Ways


Summer sale season is here and boy did I make a killing! This dress here was originally what I had wanted for a birthday present back in March, but chose to opt for the blazer instead due to, what I felt, was severe over-pricing on Urban's part. No longer! This whimsical, vintage-inspired number was a mere 19 quid, as was another little black dress that I will be showcasing soon. I also got a cute pleated waist skirt for 5 quid and I can't wait to pair it with various socks and cardigans. The leather bag, which I've been staring at lovingly for the past few days, was 70% off at Accessorize! I'm feeling very contented with my shopping binge, though it means I probably can't rationalize another purchase for the rest of the summer. Nor will I need to! (I've never used so many ! in my life)








Dress/Headband/Ring Bracelet: UO; Socks: Target; Shoes: Office Shoes; Bag: Accessorize; Necklace: D.I.V.A

What a beautiful little garden! It's the perfect setting for your floaty feminine look. Good call on waiting to buy this dress. When I shop at Urban I always make a beeline to the sale section. You can get such amazing deals there.

Gosh. I am so jealous. I want to go on a sale shopping binge! Alas, one would have to have money for that. This one doesn't.
That is possibly the loveliest frock I've seen in a long time. I've been hoping to find one like that for when my birthday rolls around. The perfect little party dress.
