Burgers and a new dress

Wednesday night has been turning into date night recently as last week we went to see The Long Blondes play in Cardiff (which I've been meaning to post about and might still yet) and last night we went down to the Bay and had ourselves a Gourmet Burger and a Corona at this place (which was nearly as empty as it is in the pic).
City Bar and Canteen, Cardiff Bay

I wore the dress I bought at the last Blind Lemon vintage fashion fair in Bristol. To be honest I only bought it cos I felt I had to buy something to justify the trip up there (I wasn't really in shopping mode as I hadn't got in the night previous till arou
nd 5 and I'm much too old to handle those kind of dumb drunken shenanigans AND get up first thing) but now I'm glad I did. It's a nice winter/spring crossover dress, good with thick woolly tights but moving away from the black, black and more black that I've been drawn to this winter. It was cold down the Bay though so I thanked my lucky stars I hadn't ditched the thick tights and winter coat just yet.
The burger was fantastic (veggie and camembert, no beef for veggie me, no way) and by the time we'd got to the City Bar I had to undo my belt in order to fit my Corona in (bloke's fault- he insisted we needed two side orders of fries- have you seen the size of the burgers at GBK? They're the high rises of the burger world.) And then I woke up at 2.15 am shaking my bloke's arm and saying there were rats on our bedroom ceiling, I blame the garlic mayonnaise.

Love Anna X

Oooh, I'm so jealous you saw The Long Blondes . . . I saw them last year in Chicago but I doubt they'll ever come to Atlanta. You should totally write a post on the show so I can live vicariously through you for a day. :)

Your dress is so lovely too!!

Ooo, you kept this quiet - it is a great blog. I can only dream of having even a teeny sense of style, but I love your musings anyway. Bring on the macaroons!

Ooh that restaurant looks quite pretty. Cute dress! Yay for opaque tights - they will never go out of fashion.

What a cute dress! The square neckline is a nice detail.
