Gonna wash my bones in the Atlantic shore



(Dress: Topshop with sleeves taken off, ugly feet: posers own) #teenvogue

I found this dress in my cupboard a few weeks ago having never worn it. I bought in Topshop sale, I have this strange feelings for clothes that are left in sale for weeks and weeks, homeless and unwanted. Working in Topshop did nothing if not amass a section of my wardrobe accumulated due to my feminine feelings for rejected clothing. But when I rediscovered it again and tried it on I still felt weird in it. It originally had fussy sleeves that made it look a bit, well cheap. So I just grabbed the stitch ripper and took them off. Looks a bit more balanced now. I might have to revisit some of my other sale rejects and see if I can love them a bit more.

P.S. sorry for my blogging absence- balancing a full time job with general life is proving difficult. However, I graduate on Friday! Exciting, but I'll attempt to schedule a post for Thursday, so see you then!

With love from,

Emma x

  1. Congratulations for your graduation! You look beautiful as usual- love the dress, and I'm always amazed by the stunning scenery of your outfit shots. Puts my bedroom background to shame, I should get out into my local area to take photos with a tripod I think! xx

  19. What an amazing setting! And good thinking sleeves-wise, altering sales clothes is such a good idea. Items shouldn't have to go unloved! And thank you so much for your comment x
