Topshop flippy dress

I know, I know... ANOTHER Topshop basic dress. I just can't help myself, I've got this in two colours too. I picked this up a while ago when Topshop had discount and free delivery so it only cost me £18. It's stretchy and holds it shape really well even after loads of washes and hasn't faded. I think these dresses are a bit of a bargain and are really versatile. I've worn this on a night out with heels, a clutch and a statement necklace but I usually wear it with my biker jacket to work. The only problem with this dress is that it is a tad short. I'm about 5 ft 6 and its a bit indecent. If you are 5 ft 5 and about I suggest you get it from the tall section.

I've been wearing this outfit a lot recently, its so comfy and you can add as many layers as you like.

I've had a lovely week with a surprise party for my friend Meg, confirmed my new full time all year round contract in work and had lots of other lovely opportunities come my way. Then I lost my purse on Thursday and I've been in a bad mood since. It seems silly to get upset about it because it is all replaceable but I really did like that purse :( Sorry for mentioning it on twitter about 50 times in the past two days.

The rain has put a stop to any plans of taking my dog for a long walk and getting out to take some photos so I'm stuck inside watching Dr Who and making rocky road chunks which isn't a bad way to spend a Saturday really.

  10. I am so sorry you lost your purse, it must have been awful, I know I would feel upset too if I had lost mine. Even though a purse is just a purse there is always that little bit of personal attachment, so I understand where you are coming from. Let it be a sign of some good luck on it's way, and make sure you treat yourself to a equally lovely new purse.
    p.s You look amazing girl! Totally rocking that dress, love your tartan snood xxx
