Snap Happy

I first spotted this Modcloth beauty on instagram and couldn't stop thinking about it!  I loved the quirky print and the colours combined with the cute little collar.  Unfortunately my previous experiences with ordering from Modcloth leading to pretty hefty customs charges (£20 on top of a £60 dress?! No thank you!) meant that it was destined to just be a pipe dream.  Sarah came to the rescue, she knew I wanted a couple of dresses so when she went to America recently she placed an order to collect from her friends and asked if I wanted to add a couple of items.  Oh yes please!  And this dress did not disappoint.  It is of nice quality and the colours are even more beautiful in real life.  I really wish Modcloth would open a UK distribution centre.  They have such wonderfully different fabrics and make way more cool knee length dresses than similar UK sites.  I also love that you can read ratings from other shoppers and see photos of them in the item before you buy.  It's especially good when you find a review from someone with similar measurements to yourself, every site should do this!

Dress: Modcloth
Cardigan: Primark
Shoes: Topshop

It's typical that after I completed my Christmas list I find the most perfect thing to add to it!  If any of you are struggling for a gift or suggestions for what you would like this might be right up your street too.  It also comes in silver and various other metals but I'm a gold fiend!  I would love to hang it off a simple gold chain around my neck, I used to always  wear little necklaces but don't know what has happened to them all.  All charms from Charms Direct are handmade in the UK in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham.
