Hi hi! How is your week going? Last night Becca and I had drinks with our Internet friend Morgan. Morgan loves cats and books as much as I have and I have been following her for ages so it was fun to finally meet in real life! I really love her feed and if you are looking for more bookstagram accounts to follow, hers is an absolute MUST!
My friend Cassandra threw a party a few weeks ago and wore this dress and I was so sure it was vintage! I asked her where it was from and was so excited when she told me it was Anthropologie – and current. So of course the next day I went out and bought the same one. It’s the best!!! I’d say that it definitely runs on the smaller side. I took a small and it’s pretty loose. I’m usually a small or a medium in dresses and button front dresses often gape in the bust and that was not the case with this one. I would usually have ordered a medium because of the button front but reviews said it ran large so I’m happy that I listened!
ALSO – I will just say that I bought this dress from Anthro when it was still available in extended sizes and it sold out SO quickly in plus sizes; so annoying! I linked to a few cute plus options down below!!

The Best Red Dresses For Spring
You might have gathered that I really love red. It’s one of my favorite colors! From an easiness perspective it goes with almost everything (practically a neutral) but it still stands out and makes a fun splash. I have been wearing the Tanya Taylor dress from this post constantly (like, constantly, to the point where my friends laugh at me for wearing it so much!) and have gotten a lot of requests for some similar, more affordable options so here are three! The Leith wrap dress is probably the closest, and only $79… but I realllllly want that Rachel Parcell dress too! And this dress is only available in plus sizes but it’s SO PRETTY.

Red is such a bold and glam colour – wish I could pull it off! It’s a looking too attention seeking for shy lil’ me, haha! Love your dress though! You look gorgeous! 🙂

Aw I bet you’d look fab! Thanks Charmaine! x
Gorgeous dress, I love the very subtle texture. And I love red too, I started using it more when I had ginger hair and loved it. Dyeing my hair made me experiment with tons of new colours that I had never realized looked good on me.
That’s so great! I love experimenting with color.
So cute! Just bought it for myself. 🙂
ahhh i hope you love it!!!
Oh I love the one you are wearing!
