I spotted this dress in the window and knew I had to have it. It's gorgeous. It looks like a thrifted dress that your Granny would wear. A lovely small floral print with placket down the front, centre back zip and short gathered sleeves. It was available in pale blue or lilac (sooo Luella S/S 09), so I snapped up both. I can see me wearing these to death. I also got a sheer navy dress with cream crocheted front. It hangs beautifully and has lovely 3/4 length sleeves.
I decided to quickly pop upstairs to look at the shoes. Recently I've been disappointed with the range, however when I got there I spotted the elusive studded sandals. Can you believe it? These were literally all over the fashion mags, months and months ago. Ebay had zillions for sale at rip-off prices and at the end of last year, I finally gave up hope of ever seeing them in my local (which must be extremely behind on receiving stock). I happily snatched both the black and brown pairs and struggled to fit them into my bulging basket.One more stop, the accessories. Fabulous finds here. I have been meaning to make lots of little fabric bows and things for my hair recently but never find the energy. Here were a pack of 4 ditsy fabric clasps for £1! I also got 2 white satin and 2 peach polka dot satin in a pack for £1. A large ditsy chiffon bow clasp for £1. Cream and dusky rose carved flower clasps in a 2 pack for £1.50 (I bought 2 so I could have 2 of each colour). A cream carved flower and pearl, gold chain necklace (came with earrings too but I don't have mine pierced, £2). A metal carved flower cuff and matching necklace (maybe £2 and £3 each). Oh and a super vintage looking peach and pearl brooch £2, which looks fabulous on the neck of my new dresses. I think I have all those prices right. The lot came to just over £130, which is brilliant for all the amazing pieces.
