Style on a budget by Milly.....


Milly wanted to buy a new dress. She wants to wear it  to celebrate my Birthday when we return from our break at Centerparcs.Apparently I am being taken out for a meal ,it is to be a surprise destination and I will be blindfolded! Looking forward to it - hoping it is a short car journey though as I am likely to feel sick if I can't see out!

We looked online but the prices were a bit steep for our budget at the moment ( have to pay for ladies clothes now as she is a size 12 ) so we decided to check out the charity shops.
In the first shop we walked into one particular dress leapt out at us. It was the perfect colour to go with her *high heels* as Milly calls them ( they have a really chunky heel about an inch high but they make a lovely clunky noise when she walks and she feels very grown up) it had a funky design and style that was soooo Emily...

She loved it so much and was eager to wear it so she put it on to celebrate my Dad's 70th last night...
Here she is, self styled with a touch of make up,teal coloured tights, a beaded handbag and a scarf to finish the look.


Not the best quality pictures I am afraid, but I think it gives you the impression..It has a puff ball skirt and button detailing on the yoke at the front.A really super little dress.







She also saw a fab hat with black netting in the charity shop but at £7 was more than I could afford so we went to another accessories shop and found the perfect headband to go with it..
