I had butterflies...

Well, aren't we lucky! I've gone from having a very small selection of clothing to chose from, to having a wide variety of choices, from differeing levels of quality and style. And I love it!

We have large chains, concessions and small boutiques.

I have been keeping an eye on Butterfly Online since Georgina blogged about them some time ago.

And when this dress was on the front page -I was in loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!


It arrived in it's own little bag, and most importantly, A BELT THAT FIT!


Now, as a disclaimer, my day was a loooooooooooooooooooooong one, and my hair and face a mess, so I was trying to get a sense of the dress without my face. And yes, I am soooooooo wearing the wrong bra as well.

Now, I love the colour and the style, but when I first pulled it on, I was concerned about the fit. I'd gone for the 22 as my usual size, without much thought, and I was genuinely worried it would be too small. After some adjustments though, I felt much happier with the dress, and once I'd pierced the belt (that's right, the belt was actually too big for my waist, and I think I'll need to tighten it again, or wear a different belt), I felt much better in this.

I think this would be a dress down dress, because of the length (leggings to start with) and if I got some black skinny jeans, I would definitely wear this dress over the top of them, with some ballet pumps.

The cardigan I think smartens it, but at the same time, I think it perhaps doesn't work as well I'd hoped with the collar.

My lesson? Don't try things on on a Monday night after work and Brownies, instead wait a little while!!

An OOTD post will follow, and I'll hopefully have some better photos!

Much love my lovelies,

K xx
