Frock Friday: The palest green dress

I've always been of the you-can-never-have-too-much-stuff school of thought. Another black skirt? It's a workwear essential. More vintage china? It's so pretty! Must-have beauty products? Totally needed. But after reading Amy's post on Experience vs. Things on DesignSponge, I decided it really was time to curb the habit. I've jumped on the no-buying bandwagon for a month and so far it's been pretty easy. I haven't bought anything that I haven't really needed to, other than a vintage wooden hand mirror, a glass dish and some old bone-handle cutlery from the local charity shop for a grand total of £6. Not too much of a slip up. I've created a 'No-buy list' over on Trello (which I love) and will review all the things I've added since 1 May at the end of the month.  My birthday is the beginning of June, so I'm going to treat myself to something special. The latest addition to my no-buy list is this: ASOS Green cut-work dress

The palest apple green dress with pretty cut-work details over by ASOS Salon. Please don't sell out before 1 June. I'd definitely ditch the short patterned under dress and wear over a black or cream vintage silk slip. It'd be perfect for wearing to one of those summer weddings we're going to or equally perfect for frolicking about picking daises in a meadow. Paired with much sensible footwear, of course.

P.s. An equally stunning bird-embellished summer dress.

Today I'm besotted with...

...this ASOS Salon prom dress in gem floral print. Oh the swishing one could do on the dance floor in that. Gorgeous.

ASOS have just added a few new frocks (want them all) to their Salon collection which launched earlier in the year.  And I have a bit of thing for brown floral at the moment and recently wore a Liberty lawn-esque (not sure if it actually is or not) dress of my mother's from the 70's to a wedding recently. The pussy bow and knee-length style is still just as fabulous as it was when she wore.  Thanks mum for keeping your dresses!
