This Obsession With Length

Still in London! Went out for dinner with a few friends and this is what i wore.
This dress was £2.50 and had to be snapped up immediately. Was from the charity shop i spoke about in a previous post. In another life, i would have probably cut it up and made it a short summer dress. But its all about lovely length and this dress shall stay as it is. The jacket, also from the shop cost £2.00. I'd been looking for something simple and casual like that but without the silly price tag so this was perfect.

It's funny how I've lived in London for more than 5 years, even when i wasn't, we would 'summer' in London every year but my knowledge of this fair city only spreads to where i went to school and most of the north. I managed to on this short trip see places i had never been too! silly really. all this around me and i don't exploit it. Never again.
Tbh, i am far more accustomed to Manchester life after nearly three years there. (shock horror).

  14. I like that you left the dress the length that it is...its kinda fresh and "IN" for spring...or so Lucky Magazine says so :) ANd the denim jacket kinda wrangles it all in and makes it look casual but cool. Job well done :0
