I wore my charity shop dress again today, but went a little more toned down with the color by pairing it with my green tights. As far as I can tell, this dress has only one flaw - the gold caps on the shoulder studs have a tendency to fall off. It was already missing a few when I bought it, and I've had three come off while wearing it. I've been holding onto the loose caps in order to glue them on, but in the meantime I kind of like the mix of shiny gold and matte blue studs.

I don't often wear rings, but lately I've been loving the cocktail rings that Coury wears and have been keeping an eye out for one of my own. I absolutely love this huge mint and gold one I picked up at Primark the other day, even if the boyfriend is a little less enthusiastic - our conversation this morning consisted of, "Do you like my new ring?" "It's, um..... big."

I think maybe he's missing the point.

Love that dress, although I tend to avoid clothes with stuff stuck on to them, the first wash usually takes a toll...

I like the two toned colors of the buttons on the shoulder. I also lurve the color of the tights with the socks and boots.

Yeah, I think I would have been pretty hesitant to go for something embellished like this if it weren't at a thrift shop. As it is, I'm pretty sure I'll have to hand-wash this one - something I hate doing almost as much as ironing and dry cleaning!

Thanks Linda! I'm kind of hoping that once enough of the gold caps fall off, I can rearrange them to make a robot face or something. :)

the shoulders on this dress are insanely gorgeous!

Oooh I like this. The dark tones with the pop of cognac are fantastic!
