Les Oiseaux

As soon as I bought this feather-print dress I couldn't resist pairing it with my bird charm necklace!! Although it's a few sizes too big, I think I actually prefer it belted...







Cream linen and cotton dress embroidered with dark red feathers, £3 from Next
Teal cardigan, £5 from Oasis
Tan leather woven belt, £1 from Next
Gold necklace with bird charms, £2 from Primark
Metal, beaded and thread bangles from France, primark, India and flea markets
Chocolate brown tights, 50p from Oasis
Gold leather ballet flats, £7 from dorothy Perkins

That's a cute dress! I'm so glad it's embroidered rather than printed on there. Cute necklace too!

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and left such nice notes.

That's such a nice dress the embroidered gives it a unique touch, and I love it with the necklace.
I also think it looks great belted, well you know I'm a belts lover :)

Keep in touch if you feel like it, dear

Aaaah yes!! Next Clearance, absolute legends (ok I do work for them so I am biased)! I actually bought this dress too but it didn't look good on me so I returned it. Looks lovely on you though.

I really think the bird necklace, and dress sing together so nicely. I love wearing ethnic patterned dresses with cute animal necklaces.. feels like I'm paying a tribute to mother nature, which is nice :)
