Generation X

This is another dress that has been lurking in my wardrobe and hasn't been worn for years. It was far too small for me but it fits perfectly now. I used to wear it to gigs quite a lot and it reminds me of early 90s grunge hence the post title. I wore it to work yesterday with flats and then popped some heels and red lipstick on to go out in the evening for food with my family so it's quite a versatile dress.

Dress: Very
Cardigan: Asda
Shoes: Evans
Leggings: New Look

Have you rediscovered anything in your wardrobe recently? It will soon be time to dig out all your summer clothes that have been forgotten, what do you think will be an essential in your summer wardrobe this year?

  1. Oh I love that dress, it looks dead nice on too!

  2. Love the dress, and those heels are awesome! I packed up my entire room at uni yesterday to move home for the summer, and rediscovered six or seven things that had been banished to the back of the wardrobe that now fit! For some reason fitting into things you never did before always seems more motivating that buying new stuff - or is that just me?


  3. Yay for slimming into that dress! Its like you have abrand new dress. You have done amazingly well on weightwatchers!
