inspector gadget

hat - h&m, trench - topshop, dress - asos, shoes - can't remember!

i feel like inspector gadget in this outfit (unintentionally!), with the mac, bowler hat and shiny shoes. this dress is actually the one i bought after asking for your suggestions on peter-pan collar dresses, so thank you to one of my kind readers who pointed me in the direction of this one! the price really surprised me. it's so plain but the collar really gives it an edge, and i really love it.

and yes, it's that hat again...!

the other day, i got to thinking, how nobody i know is really into clothes/blogging the way i am. i know very few people with what i would call 'good style'. how many of my readers live in/near to norwich, uk? it would be great to meet a few of you so i could actually have someone to talk to about all this blogging and fashion stuff!

  2. Oh dear, it looks like we're going to start having identical outfit posts soon - i ordered that dress yesterday haha!
    It looks so lovely on you, I was pretty surprised by the price too.
    My friends are exactly the same, I havent actually told any of them about my blog because I know they would never stop taking the piss! don't get me wrong, they look nice, but its just not the same.
    I live in Cambridge, it's not too far from Norwich, I've got a friend who lives there and she's always popping back for visits. Ever since I met up with Rebecca from the clothes horse Ive been wanting to do another meet up so I can actually talk about blogs/fashion again it's good fun. We would have to consult each other on outfits if we ever did meet, otherwise we'd turn up in the same stuff! Oh and I know we would have a fight about who gets to wear the hat! x

  5. So pretty, that dress is beautiful.

  6. Lovely outfit! I am going to pop right over to asos to find myself a similar dress...I just adore Peter Pan collars!

    I don't live near but I visit there often :) ! I don't think many of my friends at all have the same interests as I do !

  7. I know what you mean about friends not having the same interest in fashion. My friends are interested in clothes.. but it's not the same thing. They don't follow fashion obsessively like me and they would never let me hear the end of it if they knew I had a blog!! I've been wanting a dress like that for months!! I haven't seen it on asos though!! I've obviously not been looking hard enough!

  9. This is gorgeous, I love that dress! I know what you mean about the friends/blogging situation. Luckily quite a few people at Uni have blogs that I can talk to about it all, would be lovely to meet some other fashion bloggers though! xxx

  10. I think it was me who suggested the dress, it totally suits you. I haven't stopped wearing mine since I bought it. Its just so simple to wear.

    I live in Edinburgh otherwise I would love to have a cup of tea and a chat about blogs with you. I know exactly what you mean, so often people just stare at me blankly when I mention my blog.

    I live in London... about 3 hour train journey away :( otherwise I would love love love to meet up with you and other bloggers. I feel the same about my blog... none of my friends blog and I sometimes long to have someone to talk about blogs with!

  15. I live in norwich :) I actually saw you in topshop a while ago but was too nervous to say hello. I did creepily stalk you for about 5 seconds though. Apologies for that!

    Love the contrasting collar.

    Oh well!

  17. This outfit is so completely adorable. The dress is perfect. I just bought that same H&M hat about two or three weeks ago and have been cursing the warm weather here for preventing me from wearing it with everything, so I'm jealous that you've been able to do so.

  32. you are so adorable! i found you on lookbook and i save like so many of your outfits for inspiration and just now looked to see if you have a blog! but anyway, i know how you feel. i'm the only one i know who's into fashion and has a blog. one thing that is so great about this community is that even though we may not live near each other, we can still make connections with our readers and find others through sites like lookbook and chictopia. i've made so many people this way. and even though we've never met, we have a great friendship.

  37. i just came across your blog the other day and had to drop by and say I love your style :) also that I used to live in Norwich! I went to uni there but I've just moved out. Norwich is a great city and I think people there definitely have a sense of style compared to the midlands where I am now. I visited Cambrige quite a lot while I was there; it's not far from Norwich and I would imagine there would be a lot of fashionistas there (it's a more wealthy area).
