like a doll.


The dress I rejected... sorry dress. I look like a Victorian hamster. Sorry for the bad quality, it's pretty dark in there and I hate flash!

Yesterday, after CBT, Mum and I went to Totnes to wander around the market and have a good rummage through my favourite vintage shop, Revival. My mission was to find a dress for the Cosmo Blog Awards, and if I'm honest, I've been really stressed about it!

The woman who works there is really helpful, especially if you're looking for something specific. There are so many amazing things all crammed into this shop, so it can be difficult to find what you want! My two favourite dresses out of the two I liked best were both 1950s. Mum and the shop owner dressed me up and added stoles and shrugs and things to whatever I was wearing. I felt like I was their doll!

I was so drained and relieved once I'd found my dress that I NEEDED to go and have a cream tea... And here is a sneak peek of my dress:

  4. Aww I like the first dress, maybe if it was shorter it would look a little better. I find it hard to wear midi skirts/dresses because I'm quite short and they make me look shorter/like I have stumpy legs. Your afternoon tea looks delicious though and I am so excited to see your dress! I cant wait to see everyones pictures from the night :D xxx
