Every girl has a favourite dress?

Hello Sweetpea!

When I was growing up, I never really had a favourite dress. Actually, maybe that's a lie..
I remember I had one when I was much younger, maybe 6-7, which my grandparents brought me back from Portugal. It was a very expensive, heavy emerald green material with white trim and lace detail, very tutu-ish in the skirt, and I loved it. 
Fast forward to now, and it's taken me years to get giddy over a dress. Normally I like one for a little while and then I'll snap; something in me will have changed the way I see it, and alas, it's a favourite no more. (Bit fickle there Lea... I can assure you I do still wear these dresses). 

However! Over a year ago now I found the one. And I love it so much, I really limit the times I wear it, so it's a real special occasion dress. It wasn't that expensive, it was from one of the concessions at Topshop, maybe around £80. You know when you put a dress on and you just feel nice? Well it's one of those. It's flattering, it's bright, and most importantly, it's fun!

If any of you have recognised me from my incredibly brief appearance on a rather embarrassing TV reality series (which I thankfully severely doubt), you'll spot it's the one I wore then. (And yes, I would rather die than ever do that again - for the record, how I left was a set up, I opted out based on what the next episode entailed). It was potentially one of my less wonderful decisions in life! But hey ho! We live and learn!

If this was my one and only dress for the rest of my life I would be happy, I'm a monogamous lady! Do you have a favourite dress? Or are you a polyamorous dress lover? Let me know!

Have a wonderful day lovelies,
