As many people probably already know by now a few years ago Meadham Kirchhoff released a collaboration collection with Topshop. The collection featured a lot of faux fur, fluff, colour and crotchet. At the time the multicoloured crotchet dress was all I could think about buying however when I did try to purchase it, it was completely sold out.
The only thing that comes to mind in how I can describe how I feel about this dress is the quote "nothing haunts us like the clothes we didn't buy" &this dress seriously has haunted me for the past few years. I'd searched for it none stop on eBay, Amazon, Depop etc. as well as looking for endless dupes, even going as fas as buying a crotchet blanket to try and make my own version, however none of them just matched up.
Anyway, a few months ago, I spotted one for sale on eBay &even though it was pretty expensive I just knew I had to buy it. The dress is actually in such great condition considering its been pre-owned and the seller even sent me the initial label for the dress too, I think it must of only been worn very few times if at all.
So after finally purchasing the knitted dress of dreams, I thought when would be a better time to wear it that my birthday!?
I am now the grand old age of twenty two!

For my birthday me&my boyfriend headed to Nottingham for the night, I had never been before and really liked it as a place although I do think it is the kind of place that you need to go back a couple of times to have a real look around and get a feel for the place. The weekend included, pasta and cocktails, birthday pancakes, a bit of vintage shopping, photo booth posing as well as an emergency stop to buy socks due to these knee high boots been literally the most uncomfortable things ever made.. trying to put socks on 'gracefully' in the street was definitely not my finest moment, that's for sure.
Birthday's always make me really emotional (trust me, every year I say the same thing) but I think it really makes you realise just how lucky you are to have the people in your life who you do& appreciate them as well as all the things they do for you. Soppy I know, but true none the less..
I hope you're all well & enjoyed your weekend whatever you got up too.
