burgundy and beige


bag - UO, cardigan - my boyfriends, dress - topshop

this dress was a recent online purchase, but when it arrived i was really dissappointed because it wasn't the colour it looked in the photo - so i've actually sent it back. i really shouldn't wear pale beige-y colours like this because i'm so pale that they look odd on me.

short post today, i've got to start studying for my exams that i've just signed up for!

  1. I hate it when things never look the same in the flesh. The downfall in online shopping!

  2. Pale looks really lovely on you but I have the same problem at times, I'm very pale skinned but I'm trying to embrace it. Yeah I've had that happen to me so many times when the item looks different to what it actually is.

  9. Aw. I'm sad that you'll be returning the dress; I think it looks gorgeous on you. But you definitely should get what you want because it's your money!

    And I love that you used your boyfriend's cardigan. I love it when I can incorporate my boyfriend's clothing into my outfits. =)

  12. Aww, it's a shame you had to send it back - I love it, but I know what you mean about skin tones etc. I'm ridiculously pale, so I can't wear some pieces :(x
