Seven devils all around you...

Oh look, a  blog post that isn't about New York!

 Zara dress // Topshop socks // River Island boots // (faux) Chanel bag from NYC street stall // Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses & 1st bracelet // 2nd bracelet by Thomas Sabo // 3rd bracelet was a gift from a friend

I wanted to do a proper outfit post to show off this gorgeous Zara dress I bought on my holibobs. Sometimes I struggle with Zara to find the perfect fit - in fact I think this might be the 1st dress I've ever  bought from them! I picked it up in NYC but it is available on the UK website here for only £29.99. It was the cute skull print that 1st caught my attention but the shape of the dress gives it a more relaxed feel and I adore the cut out on the back. It's a perfect day to night dress, and I did just that when I wore it on Saturday for shopping, followed by the cinema (finally seen Ted!) and dinner/drinks with my manfriend. I paired it here with frilly Topshop ankle socks and River Island booties but it looks just as good with sandals for summer or tights for winter.

Also wearing my 'Chanel' bag which I picked up in Times Square for the bargain price of $35! I'm not usually one for fakes, but lets face it I'm never going to be able to afford an actual Chanel handbag. Ever. So this will have to do!

Are you for or against fakes?

  5. I'm the same with Zara sizing - never actually bought anything from them as the sizing never sits with me!
