Super Red Dress



Ohohoho. I still can't be bothered to take my pictures outside. Welcome to Lazytown, population: me. Also my hair is super messy today! I don't know what happened, it just decided to be kind of a rat's nest. Not that I mind too much. It comes with the territory when you have curly hair.









I'm wearing: H&M dress and cardigan, Walgreens tights, Delia's boots.


My dad bought me these boots years ago as a gift, and I only occasionally wore them, as I wasn't much of a boots girl until recently (I still feel like boots quite shorten my legs, and they're short already, but I love boots so screw it!). Now, though, I wear them every day. Pretty much every day, anyway. I love them so. You can't really see them at all in these photos, though; they just look like a black blob. They're really not a blob, I swear. They're super cute.

So here are some more new things from H&M, as you can see. The dress was purchased on Saturday, and it is the best dress ever, but clearly it's a bit... well, it shows my bra more than I'd like and I didn't know this until I got to work, but don't worry -- I had my cardi buttoned up all day. Speaking of this cardi, isn't it the best? Its texture is so great, and it's quite warm, and the little puff shoulders are icing on the cake. I knew I had to own it the second I touched it at the store, so here it is! I heart you, cardigan.

Now can I just say, you guys? Benedict Cumberbatch is, if possible, in possession of the Best Voice Known to Mankind. Do I dare compare it to the voice of Alan Rickman? YES. INDEED I DO. I DO DARE. So if you've no idea what I'm on about, please direct your attention to exhibit A: In which Bennie discusses Sherlock's relationship with John; I wonder why I chose this clip? EVERYBODY GO WATCH SHERLOCK NOW. And do I really need to enlighten you all as to how Alan Rickman's voice sounds? I should hope not.

All right. That's enough babble for now. I must go eat food, and then see if I can sync up the audio of the Sherlock DVD commentary along with my extremely legal copies of the episodes. Serious business.

I swear I'm not meaning to show everyone cleavage in this last photo. I just liked how my hair looked... Greg will hate me!

Oooh saucy Meg! I love your hair in these pictures, the messy curl works for you!

That dress is so pretty and what an amazing sweater. I'm still super jealous of your THREE story H&M! Mine is only one...BOO!

And as always, your facial expressions are the greatest!

Louise said...

That is one hot red dress! I love it and your awesome face.

Also, is Sherlock Holmes on DVD or Netflix instant? I have no television. Boo.

Amber Rose said...

You are so freakin gorgeous! I agree with Heather-- the messy curls are incredible on you.

I agree with you on the boots thing-- but they're just so comfy...

PS: I love the way you write-- like you are speaking! (;

Christy said...

I have somewhat similar hair and I agree, curly hair is so unpredictable! It's always exciting seeing what it'll do.

Sweet red dress!

Mandy said...

I love the hair, and glasses, and dress, and cardigan, and boots, and.... I love everything!

And his voice is quite lovely. But I don't think anyone will surpass Alan Rickman in my book.... I'm so excited for Deathly Hallows Part 1!!!!! *squeals like an overexcited fangirl*

i just love your red dress! and messy hair is definitely allowed for those of us with curly hair :)

random fact, my dad looks like alan rickman. he used to get told that all the time when he was younger and then when i was in middle school all of my friends were scared of him because he looked like snape. random, i know.

kate maggie said...

Michal said...

HA you're funny. and super sexy too so like best of both worlds or something.

So i watched Sherlock on TV. I saw three episodes & then it just stopped at the end of the last one in the middle of the most intense scene ever & is that really the end?! Is there more?! Where do i find more!?

Red dresses are by definition awesome. And Benedict Cumberbatch, and Sherlock in general, are exceptionally awesome and I'm so pleased to know more people who like them! And, they need to make more!!!! But apparently it's going to take ages, and I really hope Martin Freeman getting cast in The Hobbit is not going to push it back further, because while The Hobbit may be good, Sherlock is just better! ; )

Lise Marie said...

I love your hair the way it is! Sometimes naturally curly hair is sexy just the way it is. Great red dress btw!

lol you look awesome!! I am a fan of the messy hair and red dress, you look amazing!

I have never watched that show, but then again, I never watch anything because I am lame. When I do watch TV, it winds up being some crap on the history chanel.

I have to say that I have missed you!!!! Woot for the blog being back up and running!!

Morgan Jordan said...

Love the illustration at the top of your blog, plus all of these pictures. Basically, your blog rocks.

Following you. :) www.stylocrat.blogspot.com

I don't think your hair looks messy, I think it looks awesome. And the red dress has some great sass to it. Every girl should have a little red dress

xoxo, Ashley

I think red is your colour! The dress looks smashing on you. I know what you mean about being short and wearing boots. I'm 5'1 and only have ankle boots which sometimes makes me look like I've stepping into a bucket :(
