Cleo Feather Dress

I can't thank Emily enough for this GORGEOUS motel dress! It arrived just in time for all of this glorious weather and i've literally worn it NON-STOP! I don't normally go for these types of dresses, this one is super sophisticated and i normally go for something a bit more.. I don't know young? I don't know, but seriously, this dress makes me feel so grown up, a bit like a classy business women. The cut is so stunning, REALLY flattering! This is a size XS and it's still loose enough to feel really comfortable and casual. The skirt is very floaty though, beware of sudden gusts of wind! (When i first wore it, some poor random guy on the street had the shock of his life! Need i say any more...)
I am going to be getting a lot of wear out of this pretty number, don't you just adore the feather print? It feels really vintage which is why I teamed it with some other vintage-y accessories. This was a really good opportunity to show you guys my beautiful new bag which i picked up from the local charity shop. Unfortunately it has no indication of brand, but it really reminds me of something you'd find in Zara? I just adore it, you can use the handles and it looks quite briefcase-esq or you can actually push down the handles and it becomes and over sized clutch! MIND BLOWN! Why hasn't everyone got a bag like this yet!!
In other news, on Friday I finally finish sixth form FOR GOOD! AHHH I'm so so so excited, and so ready to leave now. On Thursday we have to go in wearing the yr7-11 school uniform (burgundy blazer and tie) then on Friday we go in fancy dress. Some of you already know i'm going in as tinkerbell, massive thank you to everyone who tweeted me idea's and make up idea's too! I'll be sure to post some pictures up on here soon.

Do you love Motel dresses? Is anyone else finishing school?
