Dress: Miss Selfridge//Sandals: Topshop (old)//Bag: Mulberry//Rings: Little Nell, Miss Selfridge and Wired Jewellery


After seeing this dress on Charlotte and admiring the amazing way she styled it, I had to get my hands on it.

Yesterday I walked around Brick Lane and Spitalfields with my mum (thanks for taking the photos!) (she was adamant a mention was required) and her friend. It was rather windy and unpleasant out, but a nice stroll all the same- we went to Beyond Retro, Rokit and of course had some bagels. In the evening we went to Wahaca and endured a 2 hour wait for a table, madness.

Today has been fairly leisurely, and I am quite happy being on the sofa with a cuppa and the new Company magazine...

  1. I've had my eye on that dress for a while but it sold out online so if I see a miss selfridge anywhere I'm gonna try and grab it! That triangle ring is awesome too. xx

  27. It is indeed, especially if you pay attention to the lyrics. "No milk today, my love has gone away, the bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn" :D
    And thanks a lot. I got the jumper in the sales, I'm so happy I bought it!

  34. I've never been to wahaca but a few Mexican friends told me that it was really good because most of the time Mexican restaurants in England are more like Texas than Mexican plus I think the owner of Wahaca lived in Mexico for 5 years so I guess that is a good start :) Your outfit is so pretty I thought it was a skirt but what a lovely combination of colours .adios

  45. Oh my Rachel, I am in swoon mode here! That dress is the pretty thing...I swear I would just love to buy out the whole Miss Selfridge site. I love all your little details too...the rings, the shoes....I could go on for days here.

    Sounds like a loverly time spent with your mother. That's so sweet that she could take the photos for you. I need more days like that with my mom.

    What's on the wall behind you? That looks like such an interesting building.

    Wishing you a sweet week! xx Marisa
