motel cilla dress

cilla dress; motel via topshop / fur gillet; forever21 / glitter slippers; topshop / jewellery; same as always!
Sorry I didn't do a write up when I first posted this!


I got this dress along with a couple of coats when I saw it go in the sale at Topshop on christmas eve. I'd been searching everywhere for this dress, so bought this as a substitute to wear on NYE. I fully intended to return it when I finally found the dress I originally wanted in Dorothy Perkins (so unexpected!) but when I tried it on I just fell in love! I find that skater skirts really flatter my figure because I have such a huge bum, so I've loved that the past season has been full of them - and I only paid £16 for this dress too which is an absolute bargain!

I bought this fur thing from Forever21 when I went to spend my birthday money. I love the style of fur it is - not that 'hair' like fur, more curly...I'm struggling to describe it! Being such a pear shape I do think it shows off my bad points, but I love it all the same! I don't have loads to say today, I'm shattered from work so think I'll leave you with this beauty and get an early night!

  21. This dress is beautiful, amazing bargain! Fit and flare dresses are ideal for my shape too, they hide a multitude of sins on me so I hope they continue to be in the shops, particularly after being so indulgent this Christmas! I adore this gilet and your nails are gorgeous

  49. I really really love this outfit. I don't know if it's the combination of the lace dress and studded belt, or the beauty of your fur gilet and my envy towards your Topshop pumps (my feet just don't seem to fit TS shoes!). But I love it :) http://sophieswallows.blogspot.com/ ox
