Outfit Post - My Heine Print Dress and New Hair

Hello! So I said I would show you my new hair a few days ago and I finally got around to taking some pictures this week after seeing Cirque Eloize at the Wales Millenium Centre, which by the way was brilliant!

So without further a do, here is the new hair!
What do you think? I've been wanting to dip dye my hair for ages and I finally took the plunge 2 weeks ago. It was done by Yana at CF24 Salon on Albany Road, but she had a real hard time bleaching my natural colour first. I was there for over 4 hours as the bleaching took 2 and a half! Mad! The colour is holding really well though so I haven't even had to re-dye it yet! I was just going to ombre it but I thought blue would be more fun!

Now on to the outfit: What do you think of my great new dress courtesy of Kaleidoscope? This Heine Print dress just called to me when I was scrolling through the site. I don't know whether it was the journalist in me that was attracted to that newspaper print sections or just the fact that the dress looked different to anything else I have seen on the high street recently.
I have had it about 3 weeks now and have been wearing it quite a lot. The jersey fabric is just so soft and cozy (and washes really well, in case your interested!) so I have thrown it on on a number of occasions and I always end up feeling smart and well dressed, without quite so much effort.

On this occasion I wore it with my big thick afghan coat (as it is freezing down the bay at the moment), thick tights and my beloved brogues! A perfect monochrome outfit!
Coat: Kit
Dress: c/o Kaleidoscope
Shoes: New Look
I've also tried wearing this with a waist cinched sequinned belt, blazer and heels, so cute and great for an evening out.
Kaleidoscope often has the connotations of being a middle aged catalogue but I was very surprised to find so many interesting pieces and many on trend items. They have tons of well prices occasion wear dresses for women of all ages and a great accessories range. Definitely worth a look next time you are doing some online shopping.

This is my current favourite item on the site.
I am having a total blouse thing at the moment, and am crushing on this sexy silky number
