Valley of the dolls



(Dress: Miu Miu, Underskirt: Topshop, Belt: Mama's/ Vintage, Shoes: Forever 21 and socks: Topshop) #teenvogue

Oh Miu Miu, if only money was no object then you would dominate my wardrobe. This dress is from a very old collection but I loved it so searched good old ebay for years which finally came up trumps. Yay, but it's ebay, there is always a draw back and this was that this dress is a smidge on the roomy side. Then comes the problem of finding a belt to remedy this was actually quite difficult, stripes can sometimes be really hard to work with, introducing more colours wouldn't work, nor would not having an exact colour match work, I also knew I wanted a wide one. Then my mum left this lovely belt, from her youth, in my room claiming "she didn't need a beaded evening belt to go to Tesco". Problem solved, she solves all life problems: boys to clothes.

I guess I should also explain the wrinkled dress, we went out on the quad bike to take these up a hill in the Scottish outback. Therefore, my Miu Miu baby was in a rucksack for  a little longer than I would have liked. The picture of my quad biking outfit complete with motorbike helmet will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Oh, also happy August! I should also tell you that I am off on holiday on Monday, but I will schedule some posts. However, if you want a constant stream of my holiday pictures follow me on instagram: Highland_Fling

With love from,

Emma xx
