|Time for Tea dress, £65 (was £85), 20th Century Foxy|
I've been excited to show you this dress for A WHOLE WEEK. That's a lot of excitement. I ADORE IT. 20th Century Foxy has excelled itself with this Time for Tea 1950s-style dress, which takes its inspiration from Horrockses dresses of yore. The print - all peas and onions and spoons and teapots - is adorable, and the fit and length of the dress is flattering on a great many shapes and sizes.

"What are you wearing to the Christmas party?"
"Oh, I dunno. I was thinking of just wearing any old garishly-patterned oversized t-shirt with a not-very-flattering neckline and then throwing a huge fuck-off sparkly necklace that doesn't go with it AT ALL over the top."
"Sounds nice. I'm going for a black dress."
This was clearly the stylist's vision for this shot. I'm not an expert, but I wouldn't say it's been entirely successful. The Krystal Swarovski necklace, however, is a triumph, not least because it used to be £225 and now it's £52.

What have you bought this week? I haven't bought anything, although I was supposed to buy a dress for a swanky awards ceremony I'm going to next week. HELP ME. I'll be going in a onesie and a bobble hat at this rate.
