The detective's hat

Dress: Portmans// stockings: sussans // shoes: inniu // bracelet: vintage // ring: gift // hat: jeanswest

Naming this post was pretty easy due to the number of comments I got from people about my hat today. Brendan asked me if I was off to meet Sherlock and Watson when I walked out in the morning. I then saw a friend who asked me if I was channeling Carmen Sandiego. I dont mind I personally like the hat, what I am embarassed about is that great big leaf on my shoe that I didnt notice when I took photos.

I went shopping yesterday and picked up this dress. It was $130 down to $35 it really drives me crazy how quickly things are priced down - it would really upset me if I bought this full price then saw it nearly $100 cheaper. I guess it just demonstates how disposable fashion is these days. It makes me think I should never buy anything full price - I guess its lucky I dont really try and keep up with trends so I can make use of these sales.

I hope your having a good weekend. Today I have eaten too much and slept the afternoon away which means I will be up until some crazy time tonight but sometimes you just cannot resist an afternoon nap.

  4. I love the dress and so true about how dramatically items can be reduced when they are on sale and the shocking thing is that they still make a profit so god knows how much it has really cost to produce xx

  13. This look is perfect against the brick background. Even the brick looks like it has Navy accents in it. Great gold buttons too! You could also do some chunky strappy nude leather heels with the navy tights. Just another funky twist.

  16. That dress was only $35?! I adore it! It's such an awesome colour on you. Plus, you can wear it in Summer too, which is always a plus.

    That hat is super cute. I think hat's should be worn more!

  17. That dress is an amazing find for $35! Not only does it look made for you, but it is quite a lovely shade. I rarely pay full price for anything anymore. The hat is incredibly darling on you as well:)

    I hardly ever buy clothes at full price. It's such a waste.

  19. Your dress is so lovely. Yeh I hardly ever buy anything full price anymore. There is something always on sale (occasionally I will if it's already quite cheap).

    And your hat is so cute! I think you look great.

    As for Game of Thrones I have seen the whole TV series. I loved it and can't wait until the next season. x
