Ah, the seventies trend. I think I've mentioned before that when it first started to creep in, I wasn't keen on it at all. Then, slowly, I started to warm towards it, and now I'm full-on embracing it! It's amazing how fashion can persuade you to change your mind so completely. I think that's one of the things I love about it most.
I first saw this dress when it popped up on my Twitter feed, and it was love at first sight. The wintry floral print is so pretty and I love the femininity of the relaxed, boho style. There's definitely more than a hint of the seventies about this dress, and because of that, chances are it's not going to look quite right this time next year. But... it was only £14.99, so who cares?! Classic clothing is wonderful, but sometimes it's nice to just have a bit of fun with the latest trends. I'm definitely feeling the fun in fashion right now.
I wore the dress out to dinner on my birthday a couple of weeks ago with spike heeled ankle boots, but it works really well for daytime too. You just have to make sure you have some thick tights and a jacket on if you're out and about, as it's quite thin material.

The dress is from H&M, and I have to say I'm loving their stuff at the moment. H&M is one of those places that's brilliant to shop in if you need to stock up on quite a few things, as the prices are so reasonable and the quality generally pretty high.
I've really enjoyed wearing a deep berry lip with this dress. This one is Rimmel The Only One lipstick in Under My Spell, together with a Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner of the same name. If you haven't tried Rimmel's The Only One range, I really do recommend checking it out. The finish and staying power are seriously impressive for a drugstore lipstick, and I'm totally in love with this shade.
