70's Shift Dress + Leopard Print Wedges.

Saturday, 9 July 2011


I've got Strawberry legs, as Raven Symone calls it. Haha! I used to be so conscious about them, the scars, birth marks and the goddam knees! But I came to love them! They are a Perfect Imperfection. :)

Here's a dress I purchased recently from Topshop! It reminds me of those shift dresses the girls used to wear in the 70s! I paired it with these killer leopard print wedges and one of my mum's old clutches! You like?

Dress : Topshop
Belt : Vintage
Clutch : Vintage (Mums)

I just checked out that Raven video and it make me laugh so much. Good on you for embracing summer and bare legs, you look gorgeous. The neutral tone of the dress really suits you.

ps i bought that MUA lipstick and it's such good quality for just £1 -x-

Girl, I have "strawberry legs" too. I used to be self conscious about it, but not anymore. As everyone said, not every woman has those smooth, clear legs you see on TV. :-)
