I've always wanted to have my very own wedding, (note how I said 'wedding' and not 'marriage'). I've been planning my wedding for as long as I can remember. I want a beautiful dress just like the one Audrey Hepburn wears in funny face, I want to release doves and I want to have a princess ball afterwards. Nowhere in this plan do I mention a partner to actually marry. That's because, if I'm honest, I just want to wear a beautiful wedding dress and have the perfect day without the whole 'sharing your life with someone' part.

Me and my best friend have spent many hours joking that we should just marry each other so we can have the perfect wedding. (In reality it wouldn't be perfect, we would end up arguing over every little detail.)

Mmm... maybe I will just hire an actor to play the part of my significant other? I'm not even joking... keep reading my blog and you might receive an invite to the ceremony.

Fashion: New York City printed skirt & love affair

Skirt from ChicMe

NO. 16

Fall in love with cities & clothes, not people

New York City is my one true love, find out why it should be yours too, by Rosa Fairfield

A love affair with a person is okay but a love affair with a city is everything. A city will never call you fat, force you to sleep with it or run off with someone it met online after a forty year marriage. New York City is my favourite. I visited the Big Apple last year and it was love at first sight. 

I loved it even though it wan't all glamorous SATC brownstones. I loved it even though I almost got crushed by a never ending stream of people charging towards me as I left my hotel. I loved it even though my mother said, 'I don't know why you like this place, there are rubbish bags left on the street'. 

I loved New York City because I saw groups of glossy business women shopping in Barneys. I loved it because there was a teeny tiny Marc Jacobs store on a street corner. Most of all, I loved watching the sunset and the buildings begin to sparkle from the Top of the Rock.

So when I saw there was a skirt with a Manhattan skyline printed on it, I knew I had to have it. I wanted it so badly that I ordered it even though they hadn't got my size. (It's one size bigger than I normally take so I'm wearing it lower down on my hips.)

I've talked about my dream of becoming a real life fairytale princess a lot on my blog. That's where my obsession with very pretty, feminine dresses comes from. Sometimes I just visit shops to try on the most beautiful looking dresses... just for fun.

Millybridal UK offer a great selection and most dresses come in a variety of colours. My favourite is the cream two piece. I love its classic design, with the modern twist of it being a two piece. The detail is intricate, subtle and the off-white colour is feminine without being the white you associate with a wedding dress.
