The long and the short of it is...that dresses and skirts have finally gone from short to mid to long this spring/summer. I've never really worn them long (as I'm around 5'3), but I've decided to embrace this trend as it hides my legs which frankly, I don't particularly like.
The trend also works well with the English Summer, which is obviously not really "hot" in comparison to back home where wearing a long skirt probably wouldn't be the best idea on a 35c day! I've started wearing mine now, although I have a pair of Uniqlo HeatTech tights plus another pair of leggings on underneath to make it work in this chilly winter weather.
On another note, those who follow me on Twitter will know that I recently had a medical-grade chemical peel with Dr Sister from Beauty Works West in Notting Hill. I was originally thinking of doing a post on my experience, but the photos are so horrific I really don't feel comfortable showing those types of photos on my blog. I will say that the results were very good and you can see how clear my skin is in the photo below...you can find out more about the VI Peel here or by googling it. What I will say is that it despite the claims, the peel is painful and itchy and your entire face literally peels off. You'll need a good five days indoors away from the world to recover. NHG x
