I’m not going to pretend I bought this dress with absolutely zero intention of channelling Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City opening credits. Because then I’d be lying. It’s not that I wanted to copy her completely: I wanted something a little less girly, a little less ‘

ballet school age 5′

… something I could grunge up just a little bit.

In all honesty I regret buying this dress just a little! As adorable as it is, I definitely think it’s much more suited to somebody with less curves than myself… I suppose this is my cue to put down the burger…

  25. I bought this dress a few weeks ago for a party next week and I was thinking of pairing it with my leather jacket as well, so I was glad to see it on somebody else online. I know what you mean about curves it is a bit clingy but I was also thinking about layering a jumper over the top so it's just a pretty skirt, do you think that will work? Also how would you dress it down for day? I always try to get my wear out of things lol Any ideas would be great 🙂 butireallyneedthis.blogspot.co.uk
