I actually own this dress, Secret of Kells by Knight Night on Taobao, in two different colours. One day I’ll probably en devour to take photos of myself in both outfits so I can put them next to each other and make out like I’m my own twin.

I’m back in employment, in my industry, in a job I really wanted and I’m even paid more than my last job. Being a fashion blogger really paid off!
