My dress is from H&M. I bought it in France on my year abroad even though I had no occasion to wear it, just because I loved it so much. I wore it last November to a wedding, and I guess it is quite an autumn-y colour, but I wanted to wear it again for the ball. I think there's too much of a "you can only wear something special once" attitude, particularly with fashion blogging, as you're so aware of who has already seen things, and I'm trying to break that habit and wear my favourite dresses more. I actually bought the dress a size larger than I'd usually wear (because they didn't have it in the right size!) but I think it works with the jersey fabric and drapeyness. My shoes are actually a pair I've had since I was fifteen, which is quite a while ago now! They're from Marks and Spencer and have held up amazing well considering they're almost 7 years old!
With the ball and the wedding I went to the weekend before that, I'm getting quite into this getting dressed up thing! If anyone wants to invite me to any posh events so I can carry on, that would be much appreciated :P
