Favourite.

I felt slightly better on the Sunday at Leeds festival so decided to celebrate by throwing on a t-shirt dress that I bought at Topshop a couple of months ago but had (as usual) not worn yet. I've been really excited about finally wearing it as adorning the tee is one of my favourite images; that of a skull.

I seem to gravitate towards clothes and accessories that feature skulls and other macabre images. My two favourite necklaces have been ones I bought from the etsy store Paraphernalia, one of which is an anatomically correct heart (though sadly this broke a few months back through so much wear) and the other a black and white skull.

Back when I was seventeen I owned the ultimate pair of socks: black with big white skulls all over, that I wore with little red pumps. The boyfriend commented on liking them before we started dating... I'm pretty sure he stole them soon after and I've not seen them for years haha.

But to get to the point I have an inexplicable love for skull images. And therefore a love for this tee dress! More skulls please!
