OUTFIT | #68

dress: ASOS; shoes: Office

Posing for outfit pictures is hard. I am no model. I am not a contestant on ANTM. There is no repertoire of broken-down-doll pose variants under my belt. So sometimes (okay, a lot of the time) I find myself reusing the same old poses again and again. The two above seem to be cropping up a lot on the blog of late. There is the ubiquitous hand-on-hip and, of course, the looking-at-my-shoes (Or, in this case, showing-you-my-roots. The time to re-dye my hair is nigh, it would appear) which is perfect for days when your face just isn't the camera's best friend. It happens. 

I own this dress in a floral print too but this is the first time I'd worn the coral version. It was my baby brother's 1st birthday over the weekend and we had a party with friends and family. There was a lot of food, a lot of booze and a whole lot of cake. (The theme was Under The Sea, hence the various fondant sea creatures)


  1. Cute dress! Lovely colour and looks beautiful on you. That cake is THE COOLEST cake I've ever seen! Happy birthday to him :D xx

  2. I adore this dress, it has such an interesting back! :) The color suits you perfectly too. There's a new post up on my blog and I'd love to hear what you think of it, so feel free to stop by!
