Black and Gold

This is a little sneaky post which has been whirling around my head for a little while!!

Last night I realised I had better get a wriggle on a try on the other items which came with the Squirrel Print tunic.

I've been lusting after this dress since it was previewed on the Simply Be Facebook page. Look at it. It's fitted at the top, flared at the bottom, seems to have waist definition - WIN!

It looks like a different dress, yes? Not defined enough for me, nor is it flared enough. One thing I will say for it though, is that it is a wonderful fit in the boobs / arm area. Shame though as I thought I'd LOVE IT...

Next up was this. I loved the colour combination and it was billed as a 'Skater dress'. Ah-HAH! Should be a winner.

It wasn't what I would call a skater dress, but I still wanted it to work!

The photos aren't the best, but I wanted to share them with you nonetheless:

The fit of this dress is similar to the paisley print dress, which you can see even more in this picture:

Now, lets talk about the dress for a moment - I love this - it draws attention to the waist, the satine is the perfect material to work on the opulent black and gold. It fastens in a press stud fastening at the back of the dress (so can't be worn back to front). 

The press stud on mine had actually broken on mine, so the dress is waiting to be picked up as we speak! 

 And finally, I know this photo is fuzzy, but I love the detail of the bow on it!! You also get a better idea of how the fit is similar to the paisley dress. 

I like that it is out of my comfort zone, compared with  my usual dresses of choice anyway!! 

I love the simple cut of the dress, and that it can be worn either with or without the belt, and is long enough to be worn with tights (major WIN).

But sadly, my home has to take priority, so with a sad heart it's been sent back with no plan to return...

So, have you fallen for an item, ordered it, and returned it because you're being all responsible? Or is it just me?

Much love my lovelies,

  3. I actually did that this week. Bought a gorgeous tartan skirt from Asos...loved it but sent it back because I was being responsible.
    I really love the bow on the front of that bottom dress. So pretty :)
