Midi Dress & A New Necklace

This is the lovely Ripple Midi dress (named after me) that I bought from Room 31 back when the weather was cooler. Although I loved it the way it was, having seen a few bloggers (Fiona & Sharon) with short sleeved midi's, I wondered about chopping the sleeves off mine to make it more wearable now the weather is warmer. And then today, I did just that..
Avril Ripple Midi Dress - Room 31 (sold out but similar here)
Black Strappy Sandals - Matalan (SS12)
Necklace - SGS Shop (see below) 

UPDATE - Necklace is SOLD OUT. Email if you wish to reserve as I'm ordering again next week
Wearing one of my new necklaces from the shop - I've found a great supplier and I hope you like the stock I've chosen. The one I'm wearing is a snake chain with silver tabs that have crystal embellishment on them. Here's a close up..
And especially for Fiona who is always sharing midi dress boobage enhancing photos..
Ignore the food baby - that's what a week of birthday celebrations gets you! Back to the circuits next week I think :)
Do pop by the shop to check out my new necklaces if you get a chance. And I've new scarf stock too, including some lightweight summer ones!
Sports day tomorrow - in the sunshine! Going to wear the highest heels I can get away with and fake a slight limp in order to avoid the embarrassment of the Mum's race. :)

Have a great weekend! x



  1. LOVE that dress - I think the short sleeves look even better - good call.
    I must investigate your jewellery shop too - what with you and Sue, there won't be many accessory needs not covered! x

  2. You look fantastic. Forget about the circuits.

    I'm drooling at your new scarf stock, the necklaces are beautiful as well, which one to pick is the question!!! xx

  6. Great idea Avril, every time I alter something I always regret it though. Love necklaces, you girls are really pushing me to the limit just when I've decided I'm buying nothing but essentials for the next few months! Off for a nosey anyway- may regret this! X
