The Midi Dress

i have a sort of obsession with the midi-dress / skirt (if you follow me on pinterest you might have picked this up). it is just such a great length to me, so flattering and elegant and something that suits all body types. midi length dresses can take you from summer to winter and back again, you can wear them to formal events just by dressing up with some rad heels… i don’t know, maybe it’s just a personal taste but i love them. and i love seeing girls wear them.

there are so many short skirts and dresses in the shops here (seems to be the only type you can find in south africa) so i hardly ever, ever come across the longer length that i love – and if i do my size is usually sold out because women snap that shit up, son. get the idea retailers! invariably i end up fantasy online shopping and pinning away pieces i’ll probably never buy – even though i want to. ASOS has a great selection of midi dresses (they know their market) and sometimes when i’m lucky i’ll get a friend who’s visiting overseas to bring me a bulk order of the good stuff.

Oysho

looking through online shop Oysho feels like floating on a cloud made of bunnies and kittens. their socks section alone made me aaaaaaw too much for my own good, not to mention those ridiculously cute animal blankets. but Oysho isn’t all puppies and rainbows – they also have delicate underthings & wonderful beachwear at really reasonable prices.
