Day 777 - Stripped To The Waist, We Fall Into The River

Shoes: Black and white stripe 'Greta' Charlotte Olympia 

I was seriously in love with this outfit yesterday-it may even be my favourite outfit of the year! Although I'm on ASOS at least once a day, I don't usually pay much attention to the clothes, as a lot of the time, they don't fit. However, I saw the spot version of this dress on a couple of blogs and knew I had to have it. Then when I saw they did it in floral too, I was in heaven! It could quite possibly be my favourite dress. My only gripe would be the neckline isn't particularly flattering on me, but the quality is great, sizing is generous, the shape and fit has a wonderful retro feel and it feels absolutely amazing on. Oh and it has pockets! We all love a dress with pockets! I also ordered the pale blue wallpaper print version, but I'm not sure the white background was doing much for me, so I returned it. The Curve range also has a darker wallpaper print, but I think that would be too big for me, given that the regular 18 fits. I love the bold and colourful blooms, so added pin-dot tights and striped shoes in monochrome to add interest but not detract from the florals. Shame I wasn't going anywhere other than along the street a little bit ; )

Wearing: Floral pencil wiggle dress ASOS, metal bow belt Topshop, spot tights and polka dot coat Primark.
Fit: True to size, 1 1/4" platform and 5 1/2" heel.
Comfort: Weren't too comfortable this time which is unusual.

    1. I like higher necklines but never think they like me (short neck/big boobs)!

  3. I think the neckline is great on you - and I am chuckling to myself because your process with this was exactly the same as mine - I bought the polka dot one and loved it so much that I snapped this one up too! I wore mine for the first time to work during the week, hoping to get some photos of it over the weekend.
