The Topshop Fluoro Dress

I would describe this dress as "cracked out Lily Pulitzer".

It has a conventional shape and a pretty floral print but Topshop amped it up by adding the fluorescence factor. It is bright and the kind of brightness that brings out any semblance of a tan that you may have.

I absolutely loved wearing this yesterday. It's fun and it's true what they say about wearing colour - it's impossible to feel miserable when you are wearing brights.

I appreciate that this is not going to work for those living in the Northern Hemisphere but Topshop have this in their sale and there are rumours that it's been reduced to £10 in stores...so at that price I think you could almost justify an early summer 2013 purchase :)

If you do buy this though please be aware that the arms are cut deep and the waist pretty snug. I bought my regular size but these are two design traits that I noticed immediately.





Dress: Topshop - Link!
Sandals: Nicoli (random brand purchased in Battuta mall in Dubai)
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: Celine

I also had to include the picture below....I felt that it represented a walking cliche... coffee cup, oversized bag, impractical dog walking outfit and mini dog. It made me laugh :)



In other doggy news I took Roger to the groomers today. This is always a bittersweet moment as although he doesn't mind me combing him,  he is not keen on people messing with his nails or glands. He returned slightly traumatised and with a severe puppy cut. I have been drowning him in cuddles and kisses since :)

Happy Saturday all x

  28. I love this dress. It looks good on you. I walk my dog regularly and so I don't need to trim his nails. But my friend uses a nail trimmer that is like a dremmel to keep her dog's nails tidy. It's like the electric thing they use in nail salons to file your nail.

  45. Oh no.. my dog had a bad cut from the groomers shaver when he was a puppy and he grew up hating the groomer! Now the only person that can groom him is my husband, he gets too "stressed out" when he sees the groomer so they refused to take him there after :(

  62. Designer cheap hermes handbags are considered as being one of the most essential style accessories with which to create a fashion cheap chanel handbags statement. They are taken as a symbol of your personality and also reflect your connection discount prada handbags with a special brand. It is all about spending to find your hot designer bag. Yet in some instances these mens jackets may cost a fortune and hence many merely cannot afford to buy them. In such instances you should search for catier love that happen to be as nice as authentic.
