Outfit: New Dress







Vivienne Westwood-Melissa Lady Dragon Grey

I picked up this dress in River Island on Monday (I’d gone in for socks really) and I absolutely love it! There are lots of extra photos on the Facebook page today. I spied it on a rack at the front of the store and decided to try it on as the sleeves looked really long. And well, they are really long. River Island have this listed as a maxi dress online: yeah, not so much. (Mind you, it’s only mid-calf on the model on their site so perhaps the definition of ‘maxi’ has changed this season?) I am pretty impressed with River Island at the moment – they are still carrying their super long tank tops and there is a stripy sweater with really long sleeve that I want but I need to try it in a size bigger than my local store had (it looks a bit strange if it’s stretched out too much over the bust because of the ribbing) so I’ll have to look for it when I’m near another River Island next month.

I had my blue boots on when I tried on this dress, and it looked fab with them so expect to see it a LOT over the next few weeks. It will go with everything as it’s black and white.

Last night we ended up going for a short cycle ride to see whether the young man’s parents were in (they weren’t), through the wood and the long way back home. It looked like rain but it held off for us. Tonight is the Tesco shop. It looks like rain again today (although there’s none forecast) so these plastic shoes will be just the job if it is wet later on.
