Love at first sight

After uhm-ing for weeks and hoping my local River Island would stock this gorgeous dress so I could buy it with my gift card, I finally caved and ordered it off ASOS as a sort of good grades gift to myself! I don't actually know my grades yet, but it was selling out pretty fast so something had to give. And we all know I don't have the strongest backbone. Especially since this particular silhouette is VERY hard to find on the highstreet store, or even for a "normal" price at a vintage shop. Another argument pro buying it: THAT PRINT <3 I will feel positively Mad Men when wearing this beauty.




I'm watching Big Love right now, I saw a few episodes back when it was first aired and I immediately thought it was a very strong series, but quite a heavy subject. I find it very hard to stomach the polygamy  and the psychological pressure on all the characters. But the dramz is pulling me in! Crazy religious folk and the realistic struggles of the sister wives make for an explosive, entertaining and touching mix.

I'm sorry I haven't really shared anything of importance the last few days, but the new semester has just started and I have to get up really early every morning so I'm completely knackered in the evenings. I just have to get back in the routine! Bear with me until I do :) Until then, enjoy the awesomeness that is my DRESS <3 I love how prints offer you several color options to wear it with. Just use the colors featured in the print et voila! Sophistication!

dress: River Island
tights, cardi: H&M
shoes: swapped with friend


I seem to be very into clothes that match my hair.

  26. Super pretty dress :) I saw my very first Big Love episode on the plane this week, and I'm intrigued. Not quite convinced yet, but I'll have to give it a try. Right after Mad Men and Weeds, that is :) The list just keeps getting longer...
