Green Elephants and Passion For Fashion LINK UP

I have had my eye on this cute green smock dress with little elephants on for weeks and weeks, i cyber stalked it online hopping it would go in to the sales, i nearly bit the bullet and paid full price for it as i wanted it that much, but being stingy means sometimes having to be patient. Then last week in my saved items there it was reduced by £12! i did a little woop woop to my laptop and popped in the old payment details, and the little elephant dress was mine! 
 I apologise now for the slight blur to these photos, being impatient i wanted to photograph my new pretty dress now, now, now but it was absolutely horrendous weather. So i convinced hubby to come to this underground passage to take photos, only problem was the lighting was so so dim that the shutter speed was the slowest it could be and i had to stand as still as a statue (which i find really hard!)! So there's a slight fuzzy feeling im afraid, but needs must, this torrential rain isnt giving us much of a let up at the moment. I hear there are lots of parts of the world having heavy rain right now, how is it in your neck of the woods?

  8. That is a beautiful color of dress and the print is pretty cool! I am not any good at cyberstalking clothes I want. I never find it in my size when it finally gets to where I can afford it. Glad it worked out for you.
    There is a tropical storm headed my way so I am in for some wet weather myself.

  12. I need to start cyber-stalking (clothing, not people - that's just odd). It seems like the way to go. Good buy!! Thanks so much for hosting.

  21. Oh, Rach, I couldn't love this outfit any more! Everything is so perfect: the drape, color & print of your completely adorable dress, those booties that I secretly have been searching for since you first wore them on your blog, your amazing hat that I have been actively on the hunt for (but can't seem to find one small enough to fit my freakishly tiny noggin'), and your beautiful accessories! Everything is so spot on. You have just been killing it in the sartorial department lately, miss thing, simply KILLING it!!

  27. emerald green has got to be one of my most faved colors on the planet. Rachel your dress is beyond darling - the silky print makes me swoon. such good news it got reduced in price, so awesome when that happens right?!

    your pics look great to me, i'm glad i'm not the only one who tries to convince a guy to come under cover when it rains to take outfit pics ;) omg, i was stumped the last few weeks when all it did was rain here. thankfully the suns reappeared and lit up the whole outdoors again. yah! happy Sunday eve. ♥

  28. It's pouring rain here today! I haven't even gotten dressed today... ;)
