This dress sat unfinished in my project pile for MONTHS. I started it at a hectic point during my MA, and put a not very successful lining in. This weekend I was a bit restless and found it again. I'm trying really hard to finish some of the craft projects that have sat around in my house for ages, so I decided to take the lining out and finish the facings/hemming on it. I'm so glad I did because it's cute! Also, I really like shifts lately because my hair is reaching that almost 60s pixie stage.

No apologies for the somewhat awful mirror shot/unglam work location here. Some new finds here - a t-shirt dress from Dorothy Perkins that is so good I may have also just ordered it in navy, and some new sale loafers. Teamed with some accessories you've seen loads of times, cos that's how I work.

 Okay, so I'm wearing a lot of black lately apparently! This is still quite amusing to me, but whatever. This mesh top was one of my favourite buys this year, it was from Inspire at New Look and is actually a body/leotard. Today I'm wearing it with a somewhat ancient pencil skirt and a belt, so it looks almost like a wiggle dress.

Face close up:

My lipstick is lime crime velvetines in suedeberry, and is basically the best wearing lipstick I've ever owned! It was a pay day treat last month.
