The Emerald City

Dress Principles via Charity Shop
Glitter Belt Primark
Beige Patent Loafers F&F at Tesco
Jewellery Butler and Wilson

I always seem to have problems photographing shades of green like this; my camera always makes them too minty looking! This dress is a more vibrant, Emerald tone than can be seen in the images, I would say, but even colour correcting seemed to be turning it the wrong shade so I’ve left it this time!

I’ve been doing a lot of buying from charity shops recently – I like the fact that in these shops there’s nothing there to dictate a certain style for you, leaving you free to use your own imagination! This dress is by Principles, but was found in a charity shop for around £5… and as a student, and still wanting to be able to buy a few bits and bobs every now and then, this is the perfect solution!

You might’ve noticed that in the last couple of posts I was sporting a nose stud. It was something I’d been wanting to try for a long time, so I finally took the plunge. I didn’t mention it before because I wasn’t really sure whether I liked it or not, and wanted to be able to make up my own mind on it! As it turns out, I didn’t really feel like it suited me that much, so I’ve now taken it out – this might be me being overly fussy, but I somehow didn’t feel like it sat right, or something like that… my mum will be pleased, and will secretly think she beat me out on this, haha.

Anyway, I’m guilty of staying in bed a bit too long today, so I’m going to go and try and catch some sun before it goes in again! Bye for now : )

P.S I didn’t even notice how creased this dress was until I saw the pictures – I think my new high definition camera must be sharper than my eyesight!
