Cinderella Syndrome

Have you ever had a dress or outfit you're dying to wear but you're just waiting for a suitable occasion to wear it? Well, this is that dress for me at the moment. I wore it once and really want to wear it again. It's not your typical going out dress. It's quite dressy and I'm not sure if this picture does it justice. It goes just to the knee and kicks out. It was sitting in the back of my wardrobe and I saw it today and thought it deserved to have its moment, even if it's not on me. I feel a little like cinderella waiting to go to a ball. 

Dress (Karen Millen), Shoes (Bertie), Clutch (Warehouse).

Just while I'm appreciating butterfly prints, I thought I'd share these pictures with you of a display that caught my attention at Pure in London last summer.
Butterflies can look so delicate and feminine.  They were just so eye catching and pretty, I felt compelled to take out the camera.

  20. Hahaha I know what you mean, that happens with me and most of the dresses in my wardrobe. I wear them once on a proper event and ages passes until I wear them again.
    That dress is so pretty, although I'm sure it looks better worn that in the pictures, hope you can show us on an outfit soon
