little secondhand black dress.

Topshop dress, charity shop, £8
As I really would like to post more regularly and start to showcase more of a variety of photography on my blog, I thought I'd share with you my most recent secondhand acquisition, this lovely Kate Moss for Topshop dress! I spotted it on Sunday whilst browsing around my favourite charity shop, after popping to Battersea car boot sale. I adore the deep v-neck and simple shape, but as it's cut just below the knee it still remains rather elegant. Plus whilst I don't think the fabric is meant to be so darn crinkled (I have yet to wash and iron the dress, I'm sure it will look a little prettier after I do!), I personally quite like the effect. It's my birthday next month and I just know that this will be the perfect dress to celebrate turning twenty in. Not bad for eight pounds, huh? Love, Jazzabelle.

london calling.

Whilst 'my' brick wall will always be my favourite place to take outfit pictures, once in a while it's lovely to take my photographs in a different location. I've been to Southbank twice in the last week (visiting the Namco arcade on both occasions, of course!), so both times I just had to ask my mum to take some photographs of me - the Houses of Parliament and River Thames make such a beautiful backdrop! I also recently bought myself a new lens for my camera which my mother and I have been gettin' used to, and as the quality is so great I thought I'd feature some slightly larger photographs in this post for a change. I'd love to know what you think? I've had a pretty darn nice week, I have to say. I've had the last ten days off work, so plenty of my time has been spent with my family who came stay in London, along with taking a brief trip down to Bournemouth! As always I've been instagramming aplenty, so do follow me (jazzabellediary) to see what I've been up to over my holiday! Just to say thank-you for all of your lovely comments on my last post, I'm still feelin' a little sensitive and unconfident, but as silly as it sounds I'm quite proud of myself for being brave enough to pose for these pictures in such a busy place! Love, Jazzabelle.
