When I buy my mansion, I'll invite the world to stay

Liverpool canal
Michelle dress: c/o Motel. Black pumps: 50p, Russell and Bromley via ebay. Bag: £3, charity shop. Skull bracelet: £11, Made via ebay. Sunglasses: £1, Primark.


I always feel drawn to the canal in beautiful weather, and, seeing as I wasn't stuck for three hours in what is essentially a greenhouse writing about Renaissance literature, I thought I'd take another wander down to photograph what came through my letter box the other day. This dress is part of Motel's "French Riviera" collection, but I'm choosing to transfer its nationality across the Channel, in preparation for next week's jubilee - aka Pimm's drinking festival. I'm not one for bodycon at all, so it was a big thing for me to wear this for a whole day. Everyone has their body hangups; my biggest one is my stomach, and this dress is pretty unforgiving on that front. Yet, with the help of the stretchy material (and some pants Bridget Jones would be proud of) I think I've just about got away with it. Still, some of the photos do make me want to overcome my massive gym phobia.


My last exam is on Thursday (uh oh), and then I've a few days to appreciate sunny Liverpool before I'm back to Essex for the Summer, and get to see all the lovely faces I've missed for the past few months. However much I love Liverpool, I know I'm still an Essex Girl! Even if I haven't been to Sugar Hut, which I believe my friends intend to change at some point...

  6. That dress looks amazing on you, good choice! I can't believe how cheap those shoes were, 50p?? There's a Russell & Bromley here in Winchester and I've never been in there because the prices in the window are enough to scare me away!!

  12. Rebecca I hate you for introducing that bracelet that is no longer available into my life. I NEED IT.
    You look lovely lady, I hate the summer because of a refusal to show my arms or the top half of my thigh in public without some level of denier coverage, but you know, its crazy hot, who really cares.
