Dress: c/o OASAP
Belt: New Look
Shoes: c/o LovelyShoes


It looks like I have a penis with the wall decal there in the background! Lolz. Stop looking.

I love the pattern on this dress so much! The only thing that bothers me is the length. I wish you could select dress length, like you can jean length. That should be the new future. I’m not really tall, but at 5ft 8 I’m taller than the average lady. Which means dresses often barely cover my.. erm.. willy?

I’m considering trying to make this into a skirt seeing as I love the pattern so much. But I don’t really know how. But that’s what Pinterest is for, right?

Postman Story.

One day last week I was in my kitchen and the postman was putting some letters into my letterbox (that’s what she said!).

I heard him struggle to get one rather large package through the flap (I’m struggling not to make a sexual joke here..). I heard him shout ‘FUCKING LETTER BOX’ and then bang really hard on the door. Like, hard as in out of aggression from not being able to put anything through my fucking letterbox.

It was a bit scary! So I tweeted Royal Mail to ask if this was normal behaviour and then was asked to pass on a few details.

I didn’t expect anything from it – other than an apology over Twitter, but the next day this came through the letter box:


I’m pretty sure Royal Mail wouldn’t have asked him to do that – a hand written note through the door. I mean, it’s not very professional to scribble it onto a missed package card – but that’s what makes it more endearing and personal, I think. A genuine sorry.

It takes a lot of apologise . It made me feel a bit guilty and think that maybe he is a good guy really, but he was just having a bad day. I mean, we’ve all had times when we’ve overreacted about something out of frustration. It doesn’t mean we’re terrible people, just human.

So thank you, Mr Postman. Apology accepted.

When was the last time someone apologised to you?



PS – I have a What I Ate Wednesday post over on my fitness blog – check it out!


  1. Beautiful dress, love the print!
    My hubby apologized to me the other day for some stupid miss understanding, oh well 😉 xoxo

  2. You should go and speak to him next time you hear him pop your post through. Just a ‘hi’ kind of thing. It might bring a smile to his face. I always like it when guests are nice to me.

    As to the height thing. I totally get it. I am 5’8 too and I have the problem of being larger up top too so most dresses look stupid on me. GREAT idea on being able to choose dress length though!!

  3. I think it’s really sweet that he wrote an apology note. Maybe he had a bad day and took it out on the innocent mail box. LOL! It’s kinda rare for people to own up and apologies these days so good for the postman!

  4. This made me chuckle. It is nice to know that people still have it in them to apologies. I lovely your dresses, I seriously have dress envy via the blog. This is beautiful Lucy x

  5. I do hate when dresses give you a penis, especially when sitting down! Gorgeous dress anyway!

  6. WOW, what a lovely gesture for the postman to do. The print on that dress is cute, and I have to always layer under many dresses now because of my height! the hems seems to get shorter and shorter every season. 🙂

  7. Another beautiful outfit, i think you’ve styled it gorgeously:) I actually hadn’t noticed the wallpaper mishap until I read what you said, made me giggle :p The postman story is very sweet, it’s such a sweet thing for them to do! 🙂 Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! x

  8. Oh wow! I will admit I have such a massive place in my heart for Northerners (call me Southern-ist even though I am a south’ner) but after your heart-warming post and your post-man with a heart it’s all too much haha 😀 So sweet he apologised and in such a cute little way too. Although, gosh he shouldn’t have lost his temper in the first place I guess, scary stuff :O

    Absolutely love your dress, very pretty and you had me cracking up at the “broomstick” part too. How refreshing to find a blogger not only with stunning style, but a fab sense of humour too. Love! <3

    1. p.s not sure where I got the broomstick part from, I’m so tired- should not be allowed online after 1pm haha. Now I’m apologising! 😉 😀
