A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Grey Mini

Today's dress, hmmm what can I say about it?  I was going to go down the (soft music please)  "I walked into the shop and as soon as I laid my eyes on it, I fell in love" Then I went, oh shut up already, since when did I start talking about clothes as if I was going to marry them or something.  No, seriously, this dress is 'THE" perfect winter dress and what better time to bring it out, yep you guessed it, first day of winter.  It's from Cue, have been partying with other items in my wardrobe for almost seven years now, and is still the life of the party.  

In fact, this wasn't my planned outfit, but my feet were a bit cold this morning and I didn't feel like leggings or tights.  Last minute decision to wear boots with socks and before I knew it, little grey dress (LGD) was out, topped it off with the beanie and cross body bag.

Thank you so much for coming over and reading my blog.  Let me know if you like it and I will return your visit.

  19. Well, if you just "really like" that little dress a lot, and you tell it often, it probably won't let hurt feelings get in the way of it's great fit. Very cute, and you should be nice to it. LGD, indeed. Classic! Way cool, the way you're wearing it here ... bet you have a dozen ways to style it!
