New Zara Dress!

A little bit like Leon over at Eye Under I, as soon as I buy something new I have to wear it. So yesterday my Zara dress turned up (website review to follow) and of course there was simply nothing else for me to wear today but this.

I am a little in love with it-it's sooo vintagey and floaty and girlie, and at first when I put it on I was a little wobbly over the length, but I think overall it works ok. I did get some funny looks on the high street earlier but I think thats because it was windy and there's a lot of fabric to this dress, as opposed to it being because I look like an extra who lost their way to the Little House on the Prairie set. Of this I am hopeful, anyway.

I decided to team the dress with a bit of leather since a) the weather is definitely cooling down and b) I don't like to look too girlie. So I toughened up the look with these chunky boots and leather jacket, then sofened it up again with loose hair, a vintage satchel, and the cloche hat which I predict I will wear a LOT over AW. I bought if from Acessorize in January this year and think it is sooooo cute! I love the 70's referencing that has been all over the AW catwalks, and so this was a nice way to dip a toe into the trend without having to resort to swathes of camel-which I'm sure will come later anyway!
