Since Evans was having a sale and an extra 20% off I couldn't help but have a look at the Clements Ribeiro items on offer! With the discount I got the dress for £20.  I had tried a couple of the dresses on in store and found the 26 to be too tight and the bust not fitting my boobs but this dress was loose fitting and a different shape to the ones I had tried so figured I would give it a go. I ordered a size 26 and kept my fingers crossed. I also ordered the coat but it was not a good shape on me so took it back and swapped it for something else.

This dress is a great length on my 5'3'' frame and is lightweight and floaty feeling. It is such a girly print and love that is came with two choices of belt. A fabric one that I prefer and a black patent skinny. I wore this out bowling and it was very comfortable. It also has pockets.

It has a nice round neck and not too wide or low. Sleeves are a good length on me even though in the official picture they are shorter on the model as is the length of the dress but I actually prefer it a little longer on me so I can wear with or without leggings.

I can see me wearing this dress a lot and hopefully it will wash well and not need ironing as I DO NOT IRON! Below is a close shot of the lovely print and my boobs. Enjoy! Sorry the pictures are a little dark but you get the idea.

UPDATE : 26th August 2012 

Sadly I discovered 2 big hole in the back seam of this dress today after only 3 wears. I have contacted Evans to see if I can get some kind of refund as the dress is now out of stock. I loved this dress but think the material was so thin and the seam just came apart as you can see below. Lucky my Mr noticed before I went out and flashed my bum and bra to the world.

  1. LOVE IT!! what a sweet dress and it looks amazing on you!

  2. The dress is lovely, i'm not a massive fan of Evans but i did see this on their website band it had really bad reveiws, but it looks lovely on you and is quite tempting, anything that doesn't need ironing is a winner in my book

    1. The fabric is quite strange but so light and perfect for summer but covers all the bits that i would get sunburnt. I have nothing bad to say about this dress at sale price but if i was paying full price it might be different x

  3. That dress looks so lovely on you!

  4. You make that dress look a millions time better than it looks on the model!
