Yellow Haze

You know how it is. You have a dress that you love, but there's one thing that keeps you from wearing it - this was that dress for me. I bought it on sale from ASOS about two years ago but the thing that held me back was the top half.

To be blunt, I have a rather large bust and halter dresses and tops can be quite difficult to manage, so I left it unworn at the back of my wardrobe; but while having a bit of a cleanup from moving, I decided to try it again. I still loved it, but couldn't get over how my bosom (which had increased in size since buying the dress) all but spilt out of it! I was going to add it to my 'to sell' pile, but then I thought 'what if I use the belt to give myself a little more modesty?' I simply used the belt to cover my bust and adjusted the belt to accommodate the halter-top - a new dress was born!
Dress: ASOS^
Cardigan: South (via Very)^
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins
I now can't get over how much I love the new and improved look, and intend to sew the belt across the bust so I don't have to fiddle with it every time I want to wear it.

The dress is so floaty and gorgeous. It's triple layered with a nude base which works so well with the yellow and green pattern. The length is perfect and the material is incredibly light - and yes, you do need to watch out for that wind! I paired it with a simple cardigan and the cutest Dorothy Perkins sandals - the perfect Summer outfit.
It just goes to show that with a little experimenting, something that never worked could actually turn out to be just wonderful.

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
