Watching those Pennies

In last nights post, I was complaining about my pale complexion, well, this is how pale I actually am! I went for the au naturel look today. Never fear, though. I accessorised with my heart sunnies, a vintage scarf, a belt and branches as my arms. So fashionable these days, don't you know? So, there I am chilling (literally) on top of my car.


Despite the snow, I battled my way into town, well, my Dad brought me in! First on my list was some HighBeam by Benefit. That was a success. Next on the list was a pair of DM (Dr Martens) boots. That was a major fail!

However, my disappointment ended when I spotted this dress. At just €19, I couldn't leave this beauty hanging. This dress will solve the 'what will I wear tonight' question. Even though I had my eye on a sequined dress from Topshop and a black jumpsuit from Warehouse, this tulle and crochet-esque number more than makes up for not getting the dress and jumpsuit. It has that Lanvin for H&M feel about it, at a fraction of the price. A gem, for sure!




Dress: Penneys
Belt: River Island

Firstly, what do you think of my au naturel look and secondly, do you like the dress?

Wow! This snowman is amazing, I want one of these for me. Unfortunately it has not snowed here in Brazil, very sad.
That dress is so beautiful, I was willing to use something, I hope you have a similar here in my hometown, because I will participate in a prize and need is wearing a dress like this and dignified fashion.
