Peter Pan Collar


Outfit: Dress- asos.com, Tights - Primark, Shoes - Market, Earrings - Topshop


I became mildly obsessed with this dress after seeing it in the asos.com magazine a few months ago. The shape, the neckline, the back detail all ooze perfection. I also adore the peter pan collar - a blink back to childhood cardigans and judging by asos's recent editorials they are about to become very popular. Most importantly though, I haven't seen anything similar on the high street. This dress will also help me in my quest to wear brighter colours rather than stick to darker 'safety net' shades as the vibrant red can hardly be described as reserved. I finally received the dress for Christmas and I couldn't be more pleased with it - some things really are worth the wait !

Love the colour and the cut, for me I would like one of those but a tiny bit longer to make it more work appropriate. It's a lovely and fun dress!
