Day 949 - Under The Sea We Off The Hook


Shoes: Pink satin shoes Miu Miu 

I cannot wait to show you this outfit as I'm wearing an Ariel dress! Yes, The Little Mermaid on an adults dress, it's the best thing EVER!!  I had a hard time getting it as it's by American brand Hot Topic and so I trawled eBay one weekend and eventually found a few US sellers with them. Just as I totted up how much it would cost and who had my size, somebody else bought it. The only one left. I was gutted. The website had sold out of the biggest sizes too, so I thought all was lost. I began stalking the hell out of eBay and Hot Topic. Eventually, after it completely sold out, they restocked all sizes! Long story short I didn't delay and after a hefty customs charge and expensive delivery, it arrived and fits perfectly! I ordered another (gorgeous) dress with it and wanted tonnes of other things but knew customs/postage would be too much. It's worked out pretty expensive, but it's a Little Mermaid dress!!! Fit wise if anything it was slightly big, it's cosy as it's fully lined and it's super soft and comfy to wear. I love it!

Wearing: Little Mermaid Ariel dress Hot Topic, leggings and spotty coat Primark, swallow cardigan Dorothy Perkins, wine belt Swan by Clements Ribeiro, hair flower ASOS.
Fit: True to size. 4 1/2" heel.
Comfort: No problems with these.

  1. Oh how amazing is this dress!
    It's annoying how to get quirky prints like this it often means hefty custom fees, British brands need to take note. Xx

    1. Quite generous I'd say. There's a lot of stretch to it, but obviously you don't want the print to get manipulated. I'm an 18-20 and this is the 2xl. It's fully lined too.

    2. Oooh, thank you. I think that's the size I'd need to get S in the MLP one, but it doesn't seem to be in stock, so will have a search on good old ebay.
