High street lust #44.


It's my birthday next week and although I don't plan on doing anything for it (I don't like making a fuss and I don't like the thought of growing older) it's still fun to plan outfits. I fell so hard for the VIP bejewelled heart layer dress (£175) but despite its tugging at my heartstrings, the price is pretty ridiculous...

Thus, I'd be more likely to go for the bow back bandeau stripe bodysuit (£22) neatly tucked into the grecian wrap skirt (£40) with its gorgeous draped fabric. I'll stand tall and proud in lace platform heels (£50) & snug and warm in the chevron faux fur jacket (£75). Finished off with a stud quilted hobo bag (£40) and some pretty crystal heart and bow earrings (£8) I'd be ready to paint the town red.

That VIP bejewelled heart layer dress is pricey but it's so pretty. I love that scalloped tiered look. I absolutely have to add to my wardrobe while all the lace, bows, chiffon, ruffled and tiered utra-feminine styles are so much in vogue.

Is that dress for real? Cause it's so gorgeous!!! And I also love the skirt, it's becoming a classic model this one :)

I'm so sad at the price of the dress! I gasped just a little bit when I saw it - it's just so pretty! :(

The wrap skirt is just like the one from Burberry Propsum which I love because they remind me of candyfloss and clouds and general happyness :) Anyways I too ADORE the scalloped edges of the pink dress...*want* How do you find these things?!

Love love love,

I love everything here! A really cute accessory that you can add to the dress is a single strand of black pearls. It adds a sort of chicness to it.
