Life Is A Bowl Of Cherries

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

This post is thanks to the beautiful talented sexy Miss Faye Daniels. I sent her a little care package a while back and a necklace more recently. All things I saw and thought of her. Her photos, tattoos and love of art and pooches have long been a joy for me to see and follow. Faye sent me this beautiful ASOS dress as a thank you. I have only bought one dress from ASOS before and had to send it back because it was a bodycon dress but cut strange and did not fit my shape.

This is a size 26 and fits perfect. It has an elasticated waist so has some stretch and is a longer length so no leggings or tights required. The mesh type neckline gives a a peek-a-boo effect without showing too much. I love the print. I am a cherries fan and this is a more sophisticated style than the usual vintage tattoo print I would normally see in dresses. I kept this outfit simple with a bow belt and bolero. I feel very Pin Up in this dress much like the lady herself who gifted it to me.  

I have met so many amazing people through blogs and wish I could meet them all in person. Some are closer than others. I have been inspired by these people and have gained confidence from their words, photos and experiences and want to thank them all for their support and helping me become the woman I am today.
