OOTD: Stripey & Chic

(Dress: China Doll Boutique, Necklace: Tatty Devine, Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelet: Rêves D’Hiver)
Finally, after waiting for so long, the warm weather is here!!
I celebrate by stopping by China Doll Boutique’s (now named Sugar & Style) Box Park pop-up.
Nhuc is always lovely & chatty, and after browsing her new items (some from Paris!) I tried a few on.
Although I loved some of the new printed trousers I decided that a light Summer dress would be best.
This one just screamed Parisian-chic to me, and I loved the simplicity of it – more to accessorise with!
The cut is super flattering, which surprised me as I have some rather prominent boobs and bum going on.
I think this may be my go-to Summer casual dress, especially as it suits my new hairstyle so well.
Unfortunately the dress isn’t available on the online store, but you can find it in the Box Park store!

OOTD: Spring is here?

Maybe I’m just being optimistic but I think London hinted at Spring this past week.
Not that I need much of an excuse to start bringing out the S/S items in my wardrobe!
It was nice being able to wear this latest addition though, a skirt that screams Spring.
Purple & Green are my two favourite colours, so you can see why this called to me.
The material and pattern really have a vintage vibe to them, but not so much that it’s difficult to coordinate.
I also love the detailing on the buttons of the skirt, it just seems to add a little extra something to it.
It really just made me feel very cutesy, which is not something I’ve felt for a while, due to my love of black.
I can’t wait for warmer weather when I get my legs out and possibly a vest top too – shock horror!
That said, I still had to pop on a cardigan over top of this outfit, otherwise I would have frozen.
Did you spot my post all about China Doll Boutique’s latest pop-up earlier this week?

Check Out: China Doll Boutique @ Box Park

China Doll Boutique, Box Park, Shoreditch
This weekend was pretty eventful, and all kinds of wonderful.
Firstly I got to eat lots of delicious treats, and secondly I got to meet some lovely ladies.
You’ll be seeing more on both those things later, but for now I’m going to chat about the first lovely lady I met this past weekend – Nhuc Tran of China Doll Boutique
I’ve followed Nhuc on Twitter for a while and I’m a big fan of CDB.
She is always so sweet and really knows how to represent her brand..which is also wonderful!
The amount of times I’ve been on the China Doll Boutique website and had to stop myself…
I don’t really ‘do’ clothes shopping online unless I’ve been able to try an item on in-store – I’m too fussy.
So when I heard that Nhuc was going to be opening a pop-up at Box Park I rushed down!

The lovely lady herself is just as sweet in person as her online persona.
I was so happy to be able to finally meet her, and browse (and try on!) her items.
It’s safe to say that it is a store where you can find an outfit for any occasion.
There were plenty of items to match my variety of tastes, which is impressive!
Nhuc was incredibly kind showing me around her store and even gifted me a little present.
I can’t wait to visit again, and spend all my hard earned money!
