I try to take each day as it comes…but sometimes several attack me at once

I saw that quote on a postcard in Camden once and fell in love with it. It’s probably the most apt way of describing my life right now, it seems like almost every aspect of my life is caving in and needs propping up at the same time – working 10 hours a day for a job which could be gone tomorrow, being kicked out by my landlord..who is my father, and dealing with issues related to The Boy. It’s enough to drive a girl insane, or at least to the nearest high street for some retail therapy! What I really need is a night off, forget all the issues and dramas and just be. So for now, the most difficult decision I’m going to tackle is which dress to order for Friday night!

Asos Dress – £45

All Over Sequin Warehouse Dress – £70

Striped Alice Dress by Motel @ Topshop – £45

Mesh & Satin Panel Lipsy Dress – £60

Strapless Ruched Lipsy Dress – £55

    Hi hon, Great picks, the first ASOS dress is gorgeous. The market is open on Fri, Sat mainly. I like fridays because it's more vintage with some more bargains. On Saturdays is really busy and there's loads more to see.Take care. x
