Ok, if you use the word ‘princess’ to describe your outfit you’re setting yourself up to have to deliver something extra special. And actually, all I’ve really done here is borrow an idea from Nora… some would say ‘copied’, but we’re all friends here right 😉
Mind you, I’ve never been shy about admitting that I take some of my biggest inspiration from other blogs (I wrote a whole post about my favourites, after all). And yes, that does mean pinching bits and pieces I like from them. In this case, I fell in love with this whole outfit of Nora’s but specifically ‘borrowed’ the furry hat worn with a pretty feminine look. I never saw myself in a hat like this until I saw Nora’s styling and then I was in the shop a few days later picking up my own. I had just the skirt to wear with it too in the shape of this full, flocked Voodoo Vixen beauty. This skirt is big – particularly with an underskirt as I’m wearing here – and I love it. I’m wearing my usual S in Voodoo Vixen here, and I’d say it’s pretty true to their size guide.
A fair few of you commented on the flocked peacock design on my Christmas dress and I was thinking to myself how lucky it was it went down so well, as I had something else with the exact same pattern on to show off soon too. Variety is the spice of life, but if you find something you really like why not get all the pieces… Well, that’s certainly how I seem to approach fashion sometimes! But when it’s this pretty, who can complain (please don’t get bored and leave me!!)?
