Valerie Tolosa Dress

//

This is gonna be like.. an explosion of pictures of me as it’s me in one of my favouritest dresses ever! I know I always say this and that are my favourite, in fact everything seems to be ‘one of my favourite’.

And this one is again a Valerie Tolosa item.

I forgot to take a close-up photo of the fabric, so this is a something that I cropped out of a larger photo so you can see the detailing a bit better!

I have a dozen other shoes that would go with this dress
But I felt I needed something different.. something GREEN!

I’m gonna swap the laces for purple ones next time!

Someone dumped this sofa here just
For anyone who actually reads what I write, I spent the weekend doing nothing that exciting at all! I never made it to Portobello Road Market – I overslept and got lazy :S
But on Sunday I spent some time around Ealing and bought the most lovely top from Primark (I saw M wearing it the other night at after-work drinks and simply had to buy one for myself). And then I went and had profiteroles again!

And you know what I did in the evening. I played football.
Besides my whole face turning red from exhaustion it was actually kinda fun.

WOW. What a stunning dress! My jaw dropped a bit when I saw it. You work it so well, too. I’d have to say that this is my favorite dress of yours too. 😀

Damn I love those shoes.

And yay for Twitter! It’s fairly addictive as long as you follow good people–just do a search for fashion and whatever else you like and follow the interesting folks that pop up in the results.
