Stylish Blogger Award

Last week Head Over Heels awarded me the Stylish Blogger award and I was literally head over heels about it! :) I never expected anything like this in a million years let alone so soon (I haven't been on the blogging circuit long) so thank you very much!

Tradition says that I now need to share 7 things about myself. 
So here are 7 things you may not know about me:
  • Why “Angel in this Dress”? My middle name is French and very similar to “Angel”. I love it when people call me Angel. For me, it beats being called “babe”, “sweetie” or any other pet name. Call me Angel and I will love you forever. The dress reference is to do with my dress obsession. If England wasn’t so darn cold, I think I would wear a dress every day. I used a play on words for “in this dress”.... = “in distress”. I am a born worrier. I care too much about others and their well being. But I never see caring as a bad thing.
  • My favourite programmes are Sex and the City, Britain’s Next Top Model and America’s Next Top Model. I am fascinated with fashion and I love checking out all the different outfits and hair styles featured in programmes like these. I was once approached in a restaurant by 2 girls who thought I was one of the models from an earlier cycle of ANTM. I laughed about this for quite a while as I am no beauty. I would describe myself as “odd looking”.

  • I want a walk in closet like Sarah Jessica Parker’s in SATC. My jaw dropped when I first saw the Carrie closet. It was like her own personal boutique:

  • I am a London girl, born and raised. I love London and England in general but the weather upsets me. Whenever I go away on holiday, I try to escape to some sort of sunny paradise. If money were no object, I would love to go to St. Lucia and the Dominican Republic.

  • I really want a DSLR. So much it hurts. But not an atrociously expensive or massive one.

  • I live for head massages and having my hair played with. Words cannot describe how much I love it. I have fond memories of IT lessons at school where someone sat behind me plaiting and playing with my hair whilst I worked. Bliss.

  • The best gift any one could buy me would be a trip to New York. I love so many American brands and it would be so much cheaper to buy everything out there. I have always wanted to have a nose in Tiffany’s and Victoria’s Secret. Of course, such an amazing trip would be even more amazing with the right camera… :P

So now I would like to pass this award onto 7 other bloggers. Choosing out just 7 blogs was soooo difficult as there are so many blogs that I love reading. The 7 blogs I have chosen are not only written brilliantly, but also have lovely people behind them too.
If your name is displayed below, please accept this award and re-post with 7 things about yourself. 
In no particular order:

Congrats! I look forward to reading your answers and finding out more about you all :)


  1. Congrats on the Stylish Blogger Award! I loved reading your facts! I hope you get out to New York! It is amazing, do you not have Victoria's Secret? I live in that practically!
    And St Lucia is gorgeous! My favorite island however down there is St. Maarten!

  2. Thanks for your comment Emily - sadly we don't have Victoria's Secret here :( I have been tempted on so many occasions to place an order but the shipping costs are a bit scary! And thank you so much for enlightening me about St. Maarten! This would be the perfect choice as my other half is called Martin - will definitely be adding this to my list of islands :) x x

  3. CONGRATS on the award and thanks for passing it on to me.
    I love head massages too, they're so relaxing.

  4. I totally agree - the best gift anyone can make is a trip to NYC!!

  5. Congrats! :) I didn't realize your blog name was a play on "In Distress," Angel. ;) It seems so obvious now, but I guess I'm not very observant! I have yet to get to NY even though I live in the states. I'm sure I'd love it, but I would rather vacation to a tropical island like the ones you previously mentioned!

    In response to your comment: Eeek! Sorry to hear about your troubles with Forever 21. The return policy in the stores is pretty crappy, too...actually, I don't know if you can even call it a return policy, because they don't do returns from what I've heard! I always order online, though, so it's not a problem. I love Topshop and am glad they have an American site, BUT it still ships from England, and you have to send your return to England, too, and it just looks so confusing so I always end up keeping everything I order from Topshop, even if it's ugly or doesn't fit like it should!

  6. Congrats on the award! <3
    I like your blog!

  7. congrats babe :) tiffanys <3

  8. sweet, I also did "7 things about me post" I remember that it was so much fun to think about the things which other people don't know about me, hah!
    I can call you Angel, no problem with that :D
    Oh well, I wish to be London born and raised, but I'm not !! Is weather really so depressing up there? I mean of course I've been in London, but all the memories from up there are bloody brilliant, hah!

    Anyway, the weather at my place is awful right now & I'm pretty sure it's getting cold again, Eeek !! Also hope for holidays abroad... like California, like right now ??



  9. Aw thanks so much for this award lovely :) It's so nice to hear such kind words about my blog and I'm really glad you enjoy it :) I love reading yours too! I have a couple of planned posts coming up but I will deffo do this over the weekend hopefully and I'll let you know when I do :)

    It was really nice hearing more about you too! I love SATC! Samantha is my favourite she's literally hilarious! Brilliant! I'm saving up for a DSLR too! I got half the money for Christmas so now I just need to fund the rest and decide which one to get yay! And I love it when people brush my hair, so I totally get that - it's so relaxing lol! Keep up the great posts too :) x

  10. Totally agree with you on the carries closet front, its my dream :) aand I would 100% try and do the new york shopping spree, I was lucky enough to go for my 21st in December and looooved every second of it!
