The Great Gatsby

Image and video hosting by TinyPic       Dress: Vintage from my mums wardrobe, Shoes: New Look, Necklace: Forever Dreaming

Something a little different today, I'm sure you have all seen the trailer for The Great Gatsby movie even if you haven't seen the film. I'm a big fan of the era and the pretty dresses so decided to use the movie and decade as my inspiration for today's post!

My mums had this dress in her wardrobe for years and it's the perfect 20's flapper style dress, as soon as you put in on you can't help but move in it to make the tassels sway! I'll be honest I felt a little silly walking down the street in this but I had to show you the dress.

The Great Gatsby book locket is part of the new range for Forever Dreaming, there's also Alice in Wonderland, Pride and Prejudice, Cinderella and The Wizard of Oz book lockets in the range, all hand made!

Hope you enjoy the funny little gif!

Bright like the summer sun

Dress: Tesco, Shoes: Boohoo, Jacket: New Look, Bag: Asos

Another beach outfit for you all today! It's been so lovely enjoying the sun and finally getting some vitamin D! I've been so busy doing things for Forever Dreaming that I've neglected my blog.  I haven’t forgotten about it honest I have lots of ideas that I’m working on at the moment including a new layout and page that I think you might all enjoy.

I love this Dress from Tesco's, it reminds me of the sixties and looks perfect teamed with a beehive. I picked the dress up with the vouchers I won from Tesco’s 7 day style challenge. I've always been a fan of Tesco's clothes; you can pick up some amazing gems in there. Plus I can buy chocolate and clothes in the same place...win!

I think the 60's is becoming my favourite fashion era; although I’ll always have a love for the 40's.Whats your favourite era?

I do like to be beside the seaside...

Ahoy! This week i booked some time off work and headed down to the seaside with my boyfriend. It was a lovely couple of days spending time together and getting away from our home town. The weather was amazing so I got to get my pale legs out and wear my new summer skirt!

I was lucky enough to win one of Tesco's 7 day challenges on Twitter and receive £75 to spend on Tesco's clothing; I picked up this skirt and lots of other goodies that I'm sure you will be seeing soon! Tesco has some amazing summer pieces in at the moment.

I love the seaside (although I hate sand!), we spent 3 days eating lots of food from pancakes to chips, burgers and of course lots of ice-cream. We also took a trip to sea world as my boyfriend was clever enough to bring some buy one get one free vouchers with him! What do you think of my new friend?

I'm already planning another trip back to the seaside to buy myself some more chocolate kendal mint cake!
