Like a black widow








Outfit
Dress - Minkpink via Urban Outfitters
Jacket - Topshop  Boots - Primark
Ring - Camden Market 

I've been back home for a few days this weekend, so that means one thing and one thing only, a couple of new outfit posts to grace the blog! A week or so ago they had a student shopping event at Nottingham's main shopping centre, and I just couldn't help myself so headed to Urban Outfitters to see what they had on offer. This dress, plus a top, quickly came home with me that night, and I've utterly fallen in love. Minkpink always create some gorgeous pieces, and this dress is no exception to that.  Velvet and paisley? That's one to die for combination, and I just adore it. I've been looking for ways to wear this dress on a day to day basis, instead of just as an evening wear piece, and I'm kinda really enjoying the challenge. 
I also have a small request, as you may have gathered I've recently moved to Nottingham for Uni, and since then posting has become alot less often, as the only opportunity I have to take outfit pictures is when I'm at home. So, if any of you kind souls reading this is from the Nottingham area, or you know of anyone that is, and you would be kind enough to maybe take some outfit snaps for me every once in a while, then please please please let me know, as I would be eternally grateful! At home I take my posts using my tripod and camera timer, but there's little to no space in my teeny tiny uni room for me to snap away.  

Love
God bless

  2. This dress is so pretty! I love velvet, & the design of this one is perfect!
    If you can't find anyone to take your pictures, you could look into getting a tripod for your camera, and set it on timer (alot of bloggers still do it that way!) xx

  7. That dress is divine! Love the design of it, and I guess you could always post a thing on your uni page or something for a collab between a photog student and yourself? There's probably a few you'd like to build up their skills
