Twice As Nice & Thirds A Charm

Friday, January 11, 2013

Today is a special post as it is shared with two other lovely ladies that you already know as I have mentioned them on here quite a bit. Rachel of A Dress Is For Life & Lisa of My Big Fat Blog.

Rachel had posted a pic on twitter of a few new dresses she picked up in the post Christmas sales and one caught my eye as it did Lisa. We found out from Rachel that it was from Very and only £10.50! We both jumped on the website and ordered it and had it arrive in 5 days.

This is a strange dress. It is a pretty tea dress and vintage looking print and neckline with full lining. I ordered the 26 as 24 was out of stock. I am happy to say the 26 was a good choice and the bust is just big enough. I like the length on me (5'3'') as I can wear it without leggings in summer.

It is not the best quality item but for £10 I didn't expect it to be. The seem up one of the sleeves is out of line and the center bust has a strange shape due to the lining but the print is just so pretty I can forgive it these faults.

I chose it keep it simple and wore my gold oxfords from Primark and a beautiful necklace I got from friends in Canada. Sorry for the filter but my photos were far too dark and pale. They needed a bit of colour and this is more true to the dress colours.

Dress - Very size 26
Shoes - Primark
