You know when you see something you know you’ll wear to death, so you buy multiple versions of it, just to make sure you’ll ALWAYS have it?
Er, please tell me it’s not just me who does that?
I didn’t actually buy two of this EXACT dress, but I DID buy it in two different colours: this navy version, plus the white one that’s also available. And I didn’t buy them so I’d always have them, either: it was mostly because I couldn’t make my mind up which colour I liked best. I do that too, sometimes. Like with those gingham shoes from my last post. And all those full skirts. What can I say, I like to keep my options open.
In my defence, the dress was only £25, so it wasn’t TOO extravagant, and as polka dot dresses are basically my uniform, I’m sure I’ll wear them both until they either fall apart, or I spill something on them and ruin them, whichever comes first.
The sunglasses in these photos, meanwhile, are by Miu Miu, and were a gift from Sunglasses Shop a couple of weeks ago. Naturally, their arrival heralded in a long period of No Sun Whatsoever, during which the house became shrouded in thick fog, and I started to feel like I was living inside a horror movie, and would never get to see the sun – or wear my new sunglasses – ever again. Thankfully the fog has now lifted, but if you ever find yourself in a similar situation, don’t panic: it’ll just mean that I’ve ordered another pair of sunglasses, releasing a powerful curse in the process.
Anyway, I got to wear my sunglasses (“Oh look,” said Terry, “They’re a cat’s eye shape: what a surprise!”) AND peep toe shoes on the same day. Spring has surely arrived, people!
