Flock of... Flamingos

I personally think fashion should be fun and show some personality. I love dressing in clothes and accessories which are a bit quirky and kitsch, like me. I definitely don't run with the crowd.

Show me something with animals printed all over it, and more likely than not I'm going to want it. Show me a dress with animals on it, and I'll be sprinting to the checkout. There's a part of me that knows I will never grow out of this love affair with animals on clothes.

I love flamingos. They're bright, they're colourful, they're a bit different, and when I think of Kitsch, they're one of the first things that come to mind. No longer confined to tacky holiday souvenirs, they're now making their rounds in the world of fashion.

Which leads me to today's OOTD and one of my new flamingo dresses...


This beautiful dress arrived yesterday, along with another in a light turquoise with coral coloured flamingos. I've never seen a dress like it and I'm in love with both of them. I decided to wear this one today as it's grey and raining outside. I'll save the other for a brighter, sunny day.



The fabric is actually a dark yellowish-cream, and the flamingos are a very dark navy. I decided to order a size up, which I normally do for comfort when there's a fitted band over the waist. It's obviously baggy on top because of this, so will need a few adjustments. It has a tie to the waist and a cut out at the waist at the back. The skirt is so full and floaty, that I want to twirl and twirl like a five year old until I'm dizzy! But, I'd better not...


I'm so pleased I decided to order these dresses. They're beautiful, they're different, and they feel very 'me'. I'm so excited to have them in my collection! I'd recommend them to everybody!

I'm wearing purple tights and a black cropped cardigan with it, and a navy skinny belt and a radio necklace. I need to invest in some new cardis- I think red would go perfectly with it.


Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan: New Look
Tights: ?
Necklace: Accessorize
Black and Pink Bracelets: from Dorothy Perkins (part of a set),
Multi-coloured Bracelet: I think came from a surf shop or gift shop in Cornwall

I know a few of you were also admiring these dresses... did you buy one?

I'm off to read Marie Claire and watch a few movies while you all go and enjoy your Friday nights...
