Outfit Post: Peter Pan



This is my first foray into the glorious world of the Peter Pan collar. As I'm of the large-chested variety, I never thought I'd be able to wear a dress with a non-plunging neckline. I feared the word matronly. I really rather like it though. I first spotted this lovely little Topshop number over at WALKTHESAND (one of my current favourite blogs, check it out!) and it somehow found its way into my shopping bag a couple of weeks ago. Funny how that keeps happening. I do find it rather hard to resist leopard print though. And it has pockets. Dresses with pockets are the holy grail for me.


I think there's some law against wearing red and pink together. I laugh in the face of that law. Pink necklace + red tights = love. I'm also rather fond of this ring at the moment (an ASOS sale find), althought I have to take it off to type. Damn restrictive jewellery!


And here's a picture of my face for you. Soz. It's exhibiting another first though. Blusher. I'd never worn blusher in my life until a few weeks ago. Losing weight has unleashed my inner girl to an extent I never imagined. This is Topshop Neon Rose (with lashings of NARS The Multiple in Copacabana - my new best friend).

Taking care over your appearance is time consuming, isn't it? Who knew.

Becca - You should! They make me feel like a child! In a good way!

Helen - Thankyou! I think I'm a little bit obsessed with Peter Pan collars now. Everywhere I go I see them. And covet them. Sigh.
