The Dress I Just Didn't Want to Quit

Monki Hand Dress

For a little while now I have been admiring from afar the oversized shirts after seeing them posted on various social media platforms as well as that I have been literally drooling over everything on Monki's site forever and decided to take the plunge and order me a few bits finally on the behalf of my papa for my birthday - Thanks Dad!

I was so excited when the parcel showed up, but soon felt deflated when I tried the dress on, quite frankly I hated it. Well, that's not strictly true - I loved the dress, I loved the shape, the bold print, the colours, the shape, the bold print, the crape material it's made from and the fact it has MOTHER CLUCKING POCKETS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. What I should have said was I hated it on me. I didn't have the heart to send it back and I hate not being able to style something so I did what any normal person would do, I stuffed it back in the bag it came in and pretended it wasn't there.

I would visit it every now and then, just to look at it as despite not feeling great in it I was still a lot a little bit in love with it. Until one day I just thought fuck this and decided to give wearing it another go. I'm so happy I did as I loved the results, especially when pairing the dress with my new fave shoe baes ever ever from T.U.K like seriously can we all just take a moment? These have appeared on my blog a few times now and with good reason but I haven't really gone into depth as to why exactly I love them so much.

After attending LondonEdge last month, I was very generously gifted a voucher that entitled me to pick out a pair of shoes from T.U.K I love me some creepers and I love T.U.K, my current pair have seen better days so this couldn't have come at a more perfect time! Instead of the traditional creeper shoe,  I wanted to go with a boot and fell head over heels in love with these monochrome babes in all their pointed buckle glory. It's safe to safe I've hardly taken them off since they arrived on my doorstep the other week. 

I finished off the outfit with my gorge coat from Zara [which is now in the half price sale which makes me want to cry a bit] and my seashell bag my BFF got me for my birthday making this whole outfit a dream.
