27.3.10: custom made grey dress, outfit fashion clothes dress handmade etsy grey black

new camper boots


This is another dress I wear all the time but never makes it into my outfit pics. It was made by the wonderful Veronica Darling as a work dress and that’s how it gets used. I usually wear it in this exact same way (maybe with different shoes). But I thought I should at least take a picture every now and then, because it’s such a cool dress and it demands online as well as real life appreciation!

Anyway, I wore this to go engagement ring shopping, I don’t know why, but I thought wearing my usual multicoloured weekend outfits would somehow detract from the seriousness of spending scary amounts of money on diamonds. So all grey and black it was. In the end, I never even took off my coat, because the place we got the ring from didn’t have chairs to discuss stuff, it was all ‘counter service’.

dress – Veronica Darling etsy
top under – h&m
boots – camper, belated birthday present from Dave (bought in the sales in September). They are still not properly worn in. It’s actually putting me off buying camper in the future a bit. Though they are delicious and lovely, and I’m sure will be extremely comfy, once they stop giving my blisters on the back of my foot.
earings – Dave’s mum made them

    Awww, you look cute! I like how the ribbons on the dress match the boots in the same tone and curve! CUTE
