what i wore – grey ‘tinny’ dress & bee brooch

grey dress
bee brooch from oh my clumsy heart
ice cream hair grip
hello fringe cut! ahh, it always feels better. i’ve lost count of the amount of times i’ve tried to grow my fringe out, but i’ve had one in some form since i was a child so it always just feels so wrong. it’s weird how hair (or lack of) can make you feel so different, isn’t it?

my lovely bee brooch is from the oh my clumsy heart sale, which is still on, so hurry up and get something whilst you still can :) the bees wing is a little mis-shapen (as was stated when i bought it), but i don’t mind as it just makes it a little more individual.

i did try and take a photo with the super cute ice cream hair grip (there’s a cupcake too) in my hair but it was nigh on impossible! i guess that’s where it helps having another person take your photos. now that my hair is longer again i like to keep one side away from my face so it adds a bit of interest. i have some beautiful vintage hair combs that i can start wearing again.

grey tinny dress
as much as i find myself attracted to them online and on others, i very rarely wear dresses that aren’t fitted in some way in the waist or bust area as i feel it’s not a good look on me, but this dress is the perfect compromise. i actually have a black one too, a size up from this – but this one is the perfect fit. loose, but not too loose, and still shows my shape. totally a dress that can be worn as is, or dressed up super easily. i love wearing grey too as it’s a bit less harsh looking on my fair skin than black ..but saying that, black does look good on fair skin, especially with dark hair too.
