dress - Julien MacDonald via Debenhams, watch - Casio, chocker - Topshop, boots - Dr Martens

So at 5"7, I'm taller than the average woman but I still feel a little iffy wearing midi dresses when I'm not wearing ridiculous, stumble-over-your-own-feet heels because I feel, well... stumpy. So I can only imagine how shorter people feel! However, there's a story behind this beautiful dress.

Every year, when I get exam results, my grandma insists on buying me presents as a kind of congratulations. On our traditional shopping day, first on the agenda was to go to Harvey Nichols and find my grandma a posh frock for a posh do. After trailing around and finding a few perfect dresses for her, I stumbled across an absolutely stunning Alexander McQueen dress which I couldn't get out of my mind as we walked around HN. We eventually played dress up and while she was changing into hers, I changed into this Alexander McQueen dress (click here). The dress was absolutely gorgeous, colour, texture, cut etc. and so I was persuading her for it (cheeky I know, being a dress over £700 but it would be a combined Christmas/birthday/congratulations present)... and she was coming around to the idea! We shopped around a little more in different shops for bits and pieces and when in Debenhams I came across this little number. Yes, ok... the design isn't as intricate and the red is more of a burgundy but at almost a tenth of the price, how could I resist? This one even fit a bit better. Being between a size 4/6 (bar the booty), the size small in the Alexander McQueen dress was just slightly too big but in my lusting phase I chose to ignore it. I'm so happy that I found this dress, it's absolutely beautiful and a steal compared to the McQueen version. I advise you all to go try it out!

ps. with the English weather, it's simply impossible to get good photo's! It's either raining or the sunlight is very awkward... and I'm not too great with a camera anyway! Sorry
