Another Fab Find in Peacocks


I was supposed to go out today because it's my day off but nobody wanted to do anything because the weather is so bad at the moment or because they have to see their boyfriend even thought they see them everyday. Not even this rainbow could cheer me up, the view from my room used to be amazing before they built lots of houses and blocked off my pretty view. I got all dressed up ready to go out so I thought I may as well share it with you.


Dress: Peacocks
Cardi: asda
Shoes: Topshop
Belt: Peacocks
Bag: Vivienne Westwood
Rings: Evans

 I look a bit manic because I'm trying to hide how annoyed I am, I tried using my brothers camera for a change so it's a bit blurry too. His camera was very good at taking close up photos and has an anti shake thing so I got some great photos of my accessories.
I bought this dress in Peacoks on Saturday and I'm very happy with it. That's twice in a fortnight I've found an amazing dress in there and this one was only £20 and I think it looks a bit like this Dahlia one that is £60. It came with a black stretchy belt with an enamel buckle but I wasn't too keen on it so I bought this belt for £4. I tried on loads of belts in there and they all looked great. I find it really hard to get belts because most shops only do small/medium/large and the large is only about a size 14 so I will be going back to Peacocks to buy up all the belts.
This my favourite purse/bag, I bought it in Harrods about two years ago and I get lots of use out if it. I love Vivienne Westwood and wanted something tartan but because I wear so many floral dresses I wouldn't have used a tartan bag very often to I opted for this brown leather one. It's a great item because it can be used as a purse but you can also clip a strap on to it so it can be used as a clutch.


I thought this summed up my feelings about today rather well-

Hope you are having a great day with your loved one. I don't have anyone (spinster) so I will be taking the dog for a walk to fill up time in my empty life haha
