Normally I don’t bother looking around when I’m on the tube, far too many miserable commuting faces to be honest. I like to keep my head down, read the latest Stylist or just daydream of being chauffeured around London.
Yesterday was different; there I was just having a glance around at the suits and the people huffing and puffing, and suddenly a long dress caught my eye. Hardly profound I know but this girl just looked so brilliant in her long floor length floaty dress and hard black leather biker jacket I just needed to share it with you.
This is what I love about fashion, sure I’ve seen Peaches in a long House of Holland dress, and Keira Knightley was out earlier this week wearing her floor length Erdem number and yes they’re all in the shops and in the magazines but a floor length dress, in London during the day? No I couldn’t possibly but this one tube girl has unequivocally changed my mind, now I’m on the hunt for the perfect long dress, one that will work in London and not scream HOLIDAY. One that will look great with a leather or denim jacket, one that doesn’t require any accessories and one that won’t get mucky on these London streets.
After a long slog shopping online I think I may have just found it – look how pretty this ASOS Motel Rose print dress is – I love it. I need it. I have to have it. Right, now where is my credit card?
