One of my favourite things I’ve brought recently is this shirt dress from ASOS. We all know I have a bit of a thing for shirts & shirt dresses in particular, but I have been wearing this one non stop since it arrived. The cut out shoulder details make it perfect for warm days like today, letting some much needed cool air in. The best thing though, is the lovely crinkly crepe fabric it’s made from. I hate ironing, and anything that says ‘I’m supposed to be wrinkly, so don’t bother’ has me sold instantly. It’s just gone in the sale for a tiny price too, I’m seriously considering buying a back up.

As you can see the weather is finally warming up, Summer seems to have appeared overnight & today I would definitely be wearing this without the tights. I just hope it lasts & doesn’t disappear as quickly as it arrived. Nico however, is not enjoying it quite so much. He has mostly been moping around in the shade looking all hot & bothered. He’s also decided to blow his coat again, which means all of my black summer dresses are now covered in white dog hair, lint rollers are my new best friend. Why didn’t I choose a black dog?!

    THAT BAG. Swoon! I love the cute little cut-out detail on this dress and I’ve just remembered a Freak of Nature body I have with the same detail. Eeep, thanks for the outfit inspiration. <3

    P.S Bless little Nico!

      I wasn’t that keen on cut out shoulders till I brought this dress, now my ASOS wishlist has like 20 things with cut out shoulders on! I need more! Hah! :D

    Heading right over the asos to check this one out. Poor Nico, at least he’s smart enough to sit in the shade, Seb such a wee sook he wants to lies beside me in the sun! I am thanking my lucky stars he’s brown not yellow in this weather!

      Hah! Silly Seb! Nico does a little sun bathing & then gets too hot & moves! He’s been getting lots of ice cubes & stuff too to keep him cool. I would hate to have such a furry coat in this weather!

    This dress suits you so much! I’m not friends with the iron either so I love materials like this too. I hope Nico’s ok, Freddy’s the same…this heat is way too much for them in all that fur, poor bubs! xxx

    I love multi-functional dresses like this! You can dress it up, dress it down, wear it to work, wear it to a party, wear it in any season — it’s so versatile! But I absolutely love your bag, and these pictures are beautiful. What camera/lens do you use?


    • Posted 08.07.2013 at 11:58 pm | Permalink

      Yes, exactly! I love pieces like that too. My boyfriend is a photographer & it’s his camera, he uses a Nikon D3S with a Nikon 24-70 F2.8 lens. Hope that helps! :)

    Anyway! It looks really wonderful on you and gosh that bag is a BEAUTY!

    I love that bag!!! LOVE! And the cut out shoulders as well. The title of this post also reminded me of Adele’s Cold Shoulder.

    I am just like you – I put off ironing as much as possible, and thankfully most of the things don’t require it or need to be dry cleaned where they press it for me. The dress looks gorge! I bet it’s nice when you can bare your legs too ;)

    hah i’m just like you when it comes to things that don’t need ironing. or dry cleaning either, unless it’s quite special. yay for easy laundry! love the cutout, makes a black shirt dress a little more different and that bag is absolutely gorgeeee. i’m trying to decide if i should get one!

    as for leather conditioners for bals, a lot of tpf girls use lmb ( – they are a bit pricey but have specific stuff for bals. i have personally used the saphir renovateur on my own bals, and the “Médaille d’Or” rage has a black one that restored my bal courier which was starting to get that green tinge you were talking about! i used a minimal amount, a little goes a really long way.

      I hate getting things dry cleaned too, it’s such hassle! I only ever have my jackets done, or clothes if they’re super special, usually I’ll just hand wash them myself though!
      Thanks for the tips Steph! I’ll definitely look into the “Médaille d’Or” range, sounds like the black is just what mine needs. It’s not too bad at the moment, but the tinge is starting to get more noticeable, so I guess it’s better to fix it now.

    Looking very Leigh Lezark here! Beautiful. I have a Shih Tzu, he’s perfect because he doesn’t moult ;)

      Aww, thankyou! :) Nico only ‘blows coat’ once a year, after that he doesn’t moult at all, but the few months it takes for all his undercoat to come out are crazy! Hah!

    Love the shirt and its’ name ;) Great bag!

  18. Posted 09.07.2013 at 10:45 pm | Permalink

    That bag is soooo beautiful, what a great find!

  19. Posted 10.07.2013 at 10:30 am | Permalink

    that is a beautiful bag; i’ve never heard of bracher emden but it has been immediately added to my favourites list because there’s some stunning bags to be had! i can 100% relate to the dog fur issue too (lint rollers are life savers, i have so many planted around the house and in my bags). i have a cat, his fur flies everywhere all the time and he always choses to sleep in my clothes. i love that you questioned why you don’t have a black dog rather than why you can’t wear the same colour clothes as his fur, ha!

    • Posted 11.07.2013 at 1:56 pm | Permalink

      I’m glad to have been able to introduce you to them, they really are amazing bags! :) Nico is quite catlike & always likes to brush up against you (especially as you are just about to leave the house after already lint rolling! Hah!) so you just get covered! I am far too messy to wear white to match his fur, I think that’s why I wear so much black! ;)

    THAT BAG! The shape and texture is just perfection. Also I love the high low hem of this shirt dress. The detail of the cut out and the hem line make it more interesting then a typical shirt dress.
