Dear Internets,

The joy of getting a package in the post is unparalleled. It's as though in that moment, you forget you've forked over cash and specifically ordered something and it suddenly becomes Christmas. "Oh I wonder what this could be?" is a thought that always runs through my head prior to keying open child proof sticky taped cardboard boxes.

A new favourite place to send santa my wishlist is Market HQ. They seem to stock so many brands I love like Evil Twin, earlier than my favourite stores do. The added bonus is prevention of AVO's from employees that see me regularly loitering in their store and asking "oh hey, I'm back, just wondering if you have that velvet outer limits galaxy dress in yet?". No, I'm not stalking you, I just want to buy some pretty stuff OK!

Well after some desperate on-line scowering, I found my outer limits dress on market HQ at a splendid 99cents less than in store no less and now it's in my hot little hands *insert evil victorious laugh* ! I'm now a total convert and much like Christmas gifts, I took the first and many subsequent opportunities to take this baby out for a spin.

The above is of the dress worn as it was intended in all it's spacey glory and below is an image of me wearing the dress back to front with the label unpicked off the back at fashion weekend(post coming soon). I really love the high contrast on the black panels but shhh, don't tell anyone I'm wearing it backwards!

I love your use of the phrase "Dear Internets"!!!

Btw I almost just spelt phrase with an 'f'. Hit me with a dictionary now!

Ooh, I really like how you've styled the dress in both outfits! You're so much better than me - I tend to wear everything the same way haha.

I'm so in love with those tights in the last image though. Killer goood x

Haha I feel the same way when I open parcels too - it really is like you forget for a few minutes that you paid for your parcel and it feels like Christmas :) I'm glad you managed to get your hands on the velvet galaxy dress you were waiting for. And I appreciate you saying hi on my blog :)

Omg, that galaxy dress is just awesome! I love how it looks with the back in the front. Haha, shows off that amazing print even more :)
