And the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart

I bought this dress last year and for some unfathomable reason today was the first day I've worn it. What is wrong with me?

Sweater: Club Monaco
Dress: Heartbreaker Fashion from Pretty Things Boutique
Belt: from another dress
Shoes: ASOS

And by happy accident, my shoes and this belt from another dress match the colour of the birds on the dress perfectly.

My co-worker, who is a fellow eBay addict and fan of the fashion, said to me "Today's outfit is a home run. Sometimes your outfit is a base hit or a double, but today you hit it out of the park." I'm not a baseball fan but I appreciate the analogy.

I wore my ASOS shoes again today (last worn here). I first ordered these a few months ago and for some stupid reason I ordered them in the UK3 instead of UK5. I just returned them but I kept thinking about them so I finally gave in and ordered them again.

My tattoo looks nice with this dress what with its bird and similar foliage motif.

(What the heck am I doing with my hand in this picture?)

And a big SHOUT OUT to Megan Mae for her under the desk photo! This makes 4!


  1. UK3? UK5? Is that sizing? Anyway, I love those shoes! Great outfit - touch down! (to continue the sports analogies).

    Yay, for under-the-desk pictures!

  2. I agree with your co-worker, this outfit is aces. The print is very pretty, the belt and shoe combo makes me swoon. Back in the "goth phase" I cringed at brown, but it is so lovely. I don't know why I ever disliked it.

    The cut of that dress is absolutely incredible on you. Maybe it suffers from the forgetful-fit issue? I have a couple of pieces I always forget about because I don't remember how awesome they are.

  3. Oooo, such a cutie dress!!! So my cup tea this one, I love bird prints on dresses. :) I totally agree with your coworker, homerun indeed!! Hurrah for the fourth underthedesk pic!!

  4. I was so going to do the under the desk picture today and I totally forgot!! Ugh!

    I love this dress, I think your co-worker is right, you did knock it out of the park! I love birds, so I'm just totally digging this print!
