Dress #1

Hello, my names Ruby...and i'm a shopaholic! It has been 0 days since my last purchase (in fact it was only last night). I am obsessed with buying clothes, accessories, shoes, EVERYTHING, but my main addiction is dresses. The title of the blog suggests it all really, yes that's right, I have 97 dresses to date! Although my collection is rather large, I do shop on a budget, I am a part time sales assistant on a fairly low wage so when I buy, I never really splurge on one item. I also really love the thrill of getting a beautiful item of clothing for a bargain! This blog is dedicated to all of you out there who are fashion obsessed. My dresses will appear regularly, but there will be other bits thrown in there too! 

So here it goes ... post #1, dress #1

With autumn creeping up on us, monochrome has been a favourite of mine. You can't go wrong with black and white, it's sophisticated and looks very striking! You can also jazz it up a little with some bright accessories for a different look. 

When I saw this dress I had to have it, and at £13 in Primark it was an absolute bargain. Surprisingly, I don't have many shift dresses in my collection of 97, so it seemed only sensible to buy this little number. This is the first time i've worn this dress, and it was to a trip to the cinema and nando's. I decided to keep the whole look monochrome with a touch of silver in the accessories.

Although I shop on a budget, I do love my trusty Tatty Devine accessories! They aren't cheap, but they are so versatile that you can make any outfit look amazing by popping one on! So on this occasion, I whipped out my favourite of them all, The Cinderella Carriage. Now what's not to love? Disney and shiny too! I was always a little hesitant to buy it myself as it is £60, but when my boyfriend bought it me for my birthday I wept tears of joy and have treasured this little cutie ever since!

Along with my carriage, I also wore my Cartoon Eye rings. I think these go perfect with this outfit as they are monochrome and give the outfit a bit of fun. These are also Tatty Devine and cost £30 for the set.
To finish off this outfit I added a cute monochrome dog clutch bag. Now, I say clutch bag, this is really a Ipad/tablet case from Primark for £4. But shhhh...that is strictly our little secret. I love dogs, especially squashed face dogs like pugs, french bulldogs and boston terriers, so when I saw this I just couldn't resist, and I think it actually looks rather good, what do you think?

As I was finishing off the photos for this post, my puppy got a little jealous that she wasn't in the spotlight so she gatecrashed my photos, 

I think she's a rather good model even if she is a little squashy round the edges!

So that is my first autumn look, i'd love to know what you think about it and what your favourite trends for autumn are?

Love and Hugs,

Ruby xo
