I friggin' love this dress, and I can't wait to wear it as an evening dress stripped back on it's own without the tights, and jumper, and coat etc. BUT for now, I'm loving it layered up too, it's so damn versatile! And seeing as though crushed velvet seems to be THE thing to be wearing this festive season, it's just all rounder perfect for me right now. 

I've linked a dress up similar to this below, but the one I'm wearing is actually from River Island, and comes in an array of colours, but for some bizarre reason isn't available online. Very odd, I know. But if you like it, either jump on to the Topshop link down below, or sprint down to your nearest River Island and pick this beauty up in store right now. Because we always regret the things we didn't buy after all.

Anyway, what do you guys think of this backdrop? I was amazed to find this little tranquil haven that I stumbled upon at the weekend. It's smack-bang in the centre of Manchester, behind The Midland Hotel- which you can see behind me in some of the shots- and yet it was so peaceful, I could have sat there all day. You learn, or find, something new everyday, hey?

Why its's cool to be uncool

I was shopping at the weekend when I had sudden realisation. It's nothing deep or particularly insightful- well I am talking to fashion lovers so it might be to you. I realised that I needed to find myself an oversized thick down puffer coat. I mean need, not in an spoilt princess way, I mean need in a, walking to catch the bus at 7:45am for work throughout the winter I'll be freezing my socks off, kinda way. And you know, me being me, I want to embrace this amazing snuggly practicality of basically going outside in your duvet while it's 'in fashion'

I say 'in fashion' with skepticism as I was with my boyfriend at the time, when I started to try on a few AMAZING (in my opinion) down puffer coats. And lets just say he really wasn't a fan. He declared my choices as ridiculous and hated the whole look, and to be honest is rare that we disagree to such a strong extreme where I love something that he vocally hates. It got me doubting whether I should actually get a coat like this or opt for something more 'normal'... to which I quickly answered my own question..... errr NO.

I want to express this to as many people as I possibly can, you can never please everyone. If you spend your life trying to do that, first of all you'll be constantly anxious and unhappy, rather than being content and happy with who you are and the things that you like. And second of all, you'll fail. Diversity is real, people. And we all know the world would be prettttttty boring if it wasn't, fashion probably wouldn't even exist if that was the case. Even the people closest to you might hate some of the things you adore, whether it be fashion, animals, locations, foods, or even your opinions, and it's really not a bad thing, so we need to stop thinking that it is. 

Respect. That's all we need. If we respect one another differences, in line with our similarities, we will all find peace with one another, and with ourselves and our passions. Basically, being 'uncool' is never really uncool, there's no such thing. Unless you support Donald Trump, that's always going to be uncool.

Peace.
