Outfit - pretty dresses and bunny shoes

Oh outfit posts, you do cause me a predicament. I hate having my picture taken, but I love pretty dresses, and this one is a beaut!

After coming across Tiger Milly on twitter a few weeks back, I quickly fell in love with pretty much everything on their site. And while I sadly couldn't buy everything on the site, I managed to narrow it down to a couple of very special items, this glorious Hell Bunny dress being one of them.

I've loved Hell Bunny for many a year, and owed many a skull-printed black frock of theirs in my younger, punkier days, but the grown-up me fell hook, line and sinker for this perfectly pretty vintage style tea dress.

40's style dress

I though it was the perfect thing to take with me on a recent weekend away and I did feel very glamorous in it. There was just one slight problem, that didn't become massively clear to me 'til I got was looking through the pictures (hence there being not many of them) - the dress features some very pretty gathering around the bust area, which I only just fit into. So the fit itself wasn't a problem, but the lack of space between my bra and the dress, coupled with the light fabric, meant my bra was entirely visible. And of course, since I was away, I didn't have a more workable alternative with me, so just had to run with it - oops!

Below you can see the pretty pearly buttons on the lovely collar detail. And also my bra. And this was after I'd got home and changed it for a much less visible one,... I have since been 'appropriate bra' shopping so am free to wear the dress in public as much as I like (provided I plan ahead!)

Anyway, enough about my boobs! The other thing I got from Tiger Milly (on the understanding I needed it, to go with the dress) was this rather fetching handbag. It's received many a compliment while I've been out and about with it, and I can see why! My little lady said it looks like a 'jungle bag', and I thought at first she was referring to the exotic flowers and butterflies print, but it was the bamboo handle that had inspired her comment. 

And shoes of course! I might have got a bit matchy-matchy with the colours in the outfit overall but I'd almost forgotten I had these bunny-print Irregular Choice shoes 'til I was trying to work out what to wear with the dress - and once I thought of these, how could I not wear them?

Both the dress and the bag from Tiger Milly are discounted at the minute on the website, where they have about a gazillion other things I want too (in fact, I've just seen that they have the very same dress in a bunch of brand new colours, and I want them all!)  And they have free delivery too, I love free delivery!

  3. STOP IT. I now want this dress and bag and shoes and I've opened the link but... should I look? I really can't afford any more dresses, nor do I have room. How tiny do your feet look?
