The last of the Anne Fogarty dresses (so far!)

In February I blogged about a wool Anne Fogarty dress and the original advert. I mentioned that there was another Anne Fogarty dress that I owned and this is it.

This was another good purchase from eBay and it fits very snugly!  I don't know if I will be lucky enough to find any more Anne Fogarty dresses at reasonable prices, many of the recent ones on Etsy have been over £100.  1950s wool dresses are great to have in winter to keep you warm and stylish.

What I particularly love about this dress is the detail on the back - look at those buttons!  I haven't seen many other dresses with this sort of detailing at the back.

And here are my Gloria by Miss L Fire boots, aren't they cute?  As I explained in a previous post, when the AW14 styles were released, I really wanted the Alpine boots but they sold out in my size in their pre-orders so I decided to buy these ones.  They are pretty comfy and keep my feet warm!

Red Plaid in Bournemouth

It's been a little while since I did my last post but here is an outfit I wore on a day out to Bournemouth at the end of 2014.

I purchased this wiggle dress from a friend on the Ooh La La Facebook group (if you aren't part of that group, you should be!)  I love wiggle dresses but don't own many because I find it hard to get the fit just right.  It was a cold day in Bournemouth so I paired the dress with a black polo underneath and I quite like this look.

The black swing coat is also a recent purchase but I am not so sure if I suit this style of coat so I may end up selling it. 

You can also see my lovely fox brooch from Luxulite.  As soon as I saw this on Etsy, I HAD to have it.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I love foxes and have amassed a collection of fox themed items.
