Perfect Dresses #3 - the Biscuit Dress





it's about damn time i took proper photos wearing this dress. designed and illustrated by the always lovely caitlin shearer, this dress was my present to myself when i got my current job almost a year ago. covered in watercolour illustrations of biscuits (as the name would suggest) this dress is perfect in every way for a lover of baked goods like myself. also if you look closely, i'm smiling with teeth in the top photo! i don't even have any issues with my teeth i just never show them when i smile for photos, but apparently there's a first time for everything.

  8. This dress is super sweet! No pun intended, haha. The print is so girly and cute, and I love the watercolour effect. This is such a lovely little series you're doing on your blog. I really want to do more outfit posts on my blog, but I can only do them on my days off, which are most of the time spent being lazy, not getting dressed up! I find it hard to smile with teeth when I'm taking photos of myself, it feels so unnatural! I've done it a couple of times - I usually try to think of something funny, haha.

    1. i'm exactly the same! i only have the weekends to take photos and i usually just get ready and then go out if i have plans and i don't make the time to take photos before i leave, and if i'm not going anywhere then i don't bother wearing make up or getting dressed at all, haha.

  20. I've been eyeing this dress for so long, and it looks smashing on you! The little socks and flats are adorable with it, too. :) I'm a bit obsessed with novelty prints, and this one is amazing. And I wish I could get my bangs to look as good as yours do!

  23. I remember seeing that in Frankie last year! I thought there was only a limited amount but oh my goodness, there is more. And she's designed other ones. This is going to be such a hard thing to resist buying. I think, like you, I may have to buy one as a present to myself.. haha
