Mad for Tartan

If you’re an internet shopping addict (like me) then read on and feel my pain.

I’m loving the tartan trend at the moment and therefore should have known it was a dangerous idea when I typed in the vague description ‘tartan’ into the ASOS search box. However, I refrained, to an extent, and kept my eye on a beautiful ‘Glamorous’ skater dress. £28 wasn’t going to do too much harm so away I went and added it to my bag. In the time it took me to admire and proceed to checkout it SOLD OUT. 

Let’s just all take a minute to empathize….

When I see something I like I can be pretty persistent – every time I had a chance I frantically refreshed the page. The hard work paid off because FINALLY my size was available. And five days later it arrived. 

Dress - Asos
Jacket - River Island
Boots - Topshop
Bracelets - Pandora, Links of London, Mulberry
Rings - Accessorize
Necklace was a gift

I fell in love with the tartan skater style dress since Rihanna wore an Alexander McQueen beauty on The X Factor last year. 

I love the double layering on the skirt – makes it a little more flirty.

Paired with a River Island leather jacket and some badboy stud boots.

I really love this outfit – such a perfect casual-chic outfit for day and all it would need is some chunky gold jewellery and heels to glam it up. 

I'd love to hear what you guys think :)


  1. I love that dress, it looks great with the leather jacket!

    I'm a new follower of your blog, would you follow mine back? x :)

  2. LOVE that dress! Online shopping is a love/hate thing for me - there's such a wide variety online, but at the same time I love instant gratification so it's like I can't win! haha I'm glad you were able to get the dress, you look gorgeous. :)

    Keep calm and carry lipstick.

  3. I hear your tartan obsession - I saw Emma Watson wearing the same dress and have been lusting forever! I might just end up making one myself if I don't find a good copy. X

    1. Yes! Emma and Rihanna both wore the same and I just love it. I wish I could make my own otherwise I would have definitely done that :)
