Cutie Pie

I guess in a way I am wearing my heart on my sleeve with this cute little Modcloth number, I am most definitely having my cake and eating it.  Oh dear, it's late and I am tired.  This really is the most summery of dresses but I couldn't wait that long to swish around in it plus I quite like the contrast of the lovely summer colours with black.  Yummy looking cakes and pies on a baby blue polka dot background, what's not to love.  The cotton is lovely and thick and hangs really well with minimum creasing.  The little buttons are a bit fiddly for my acrylics but it's so worth the few extra minutes it takes me to do it up.  It's got quite a strange fastening system, the skirt of the dress has a little zip and popper system going on which is hidden by a fabric pleat but eliminates any gaping around the waist and the little buttons also mean no gaping around the bust.  I like dresses to fit closely but hate any gaping, Modcloth seem to have gotten the design just right with this one.  I haven't needed to add poppers or stitch in between any buttons for a change. 

This dress needs to be worn whilst baking something as equally scrummy I think!




Dress: Modcloth
Cardigan: Primark
Shoes: Clarks

I'm off to the #accessallasos swap shop tomorrow which I am very excited about.  I love the idea of swishing your clothes and ending up with something new but haven't had the opportunity before.  Can't wait to have a sneak at the asos head office either, too cool!  I've been doing a bit of sales shopping this week, I have had a charity shop clear out this week to make way for some new pretties!

Have a lovely weekend whatever your plans.  Anyone for a slice of pie?!

    Have fun at the swish tomorrow, I have been wanting to organise one as a fundraiser with the rangers for ages, so it would be good to know how it works, I've never been able to quite figure it out..
