I wore this on Friday when T and I went to the new X-Men movie at Town Square. He was disappointed when I didn’t think it was my favourite of all the X-Men movies. It’s definitely the best one out yet but I haven’t yet decided which is my favourite because there are so many factors to consider you know!

On a related note, this H&M tank dress, I also bought at Town Square. It’s possibly my favourite place to go for everything I need (except groceries). My sisters and I went on a crazy post-holiday sale shopping spree when they were here and I got this dress for only USD5!

This is my favourite HELL BUNNY dress of the moment! If you want to buy me a gift for Christmas, I still love skulls & crossbones motifs but I also like pastel florals now. And if you can afford to get me a HELL BUNNY dress, I’m a UK16. Please get something with a smocked, stretchy back, no halter-necks and nothing too long. Hahahha!!! *shameless* No harm asking right?

I’m not sure what today’s theme for WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY is but I like the colour scheme as well as how comfortable everything is. (Unlike the cupcake dress I wore on Monday, this HELL BUNNY dress has an elastic back – yay for stretch!!)

I think I’m going to milk this look in 2013 (with the occasional band t-shirt) till I get sick of it. Oh gosh! I love the Hell Bunny dresses!

Oh and this is a new cardigan I picked up from the M&S sale earlier. Only $20, I think. Adding to my collection of cardigans… heh…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green “LOUISA” floral cherry rockabilly dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Lilac cropped 3/4 sleeve cardigan from M&S WOMAN

Skirt: Peach “MERINGUE” petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Accessories: Stack of 7 black/bronze/silver bangles from NEW LOOK; Black faux leather cuff bracelet from YOYOSTORE2010 on eBay; Silver cupcake & bow necklace from SEW OENO on etsy

Footwear: Black crochet socks and Brown distressed leather boots from RUBI SHOES
