Hello world, I'm your wild girl.

Hello! It's been a little while since my last outfit post, so I thought I would show you what I wore to my friend's dinner party on Friday. (We had pizza and salad, not quite the sophisticated soiree you might be picturing!)
I've posted little sneak peeks of this dress in other posts, but I have been really looking forward to posting about it properly on here! I found it in my local charity shop for £1 and I have pretty much worn it ever since. Well, not literally, but it certainly feels that way!
This dress definitely brings out my inner pin up girl. I love the 1950s-esque shape and the raspberry bubblegum colour (I always remembered raspberry flavoured bubblegum being blue for some strange reason!) and the cutesy cherry print. The white buttons are very cute too, apart from the one on the bottom which I had to replace as I lost one while wearing the dress out and about!
(Can we all just pretend we don't see the tripod and me awkwardly holding the remote in the mirror? Which I didn't even see myself until now, oops.)
The back view. I quite like this little cut out back detail!
Me being a dork trying to get my pastel shoes from a previous post in the photo. Classic pin up girl/Caitlin Moran face gone wrong.
I paired this dress with my pale blue cardigan (also from a charity shop) & pale pink tights. Pastels forever~


  1. New hair colour! Love it, definitely how I imagined guinea gold that you read in books. Also, 1 POUND FOR THAT WONDROUS DRESS? Worthy of a scream caps.

  2. That dress is a fantastic find, I love the colours and the cutout back!!
    So lucky!! I've been today to the charity shop but I couldn't find anything pastel except a beautiful liliac dress, but is a kid size: too bad, I have to wait for the summer "collection"!!

  3. I'm in love with that dress! x

  4. Good lord you look gorgeous! x

  5. This is so pretty! Even your room goes with the dress :)

  6. been looking for dresses like yours for ages!!


  7. This is a very cute dess!!! :) One pound?!?! Amazing! I've never found such a great piece of clothing in a charity shop around here.
    Especially the back is great. ;) Suits you just perfectly!
