In the run up to Christmas, I was lucky to win the #santaselfie competition ran by @clothingattesco which meant I got a £25 e voucher to spend online.
The 'good thinking' part of my brain said to wait til the Sales to see if I could get more free clothes for my £££. I scouted the site and put a few items in my basket, but opted to wait and see.
And instead, I fell for a new item of clothing: The Colour Block Dress.
Peter Pan collar - CHECK
Flared skirt - CHECK
Bold colour - CHECK
60s style - CHECK
So reader, I ordered it!
It might look amazing, and different, and lovely but:
Look at my arms - rather tight and uncomfortable
The definition at my waist is lovely, but I can't really breath.
The bust is clearly squashed.
Also, the zip isn't even fully fastened at this point.
Sad times indeed. If this was was available in a 24 (I'm wearing the 22 here), I would snap it up to try and hope it resolves most of the above.
The dress itself is a heavy ponte material, but fully lined (so no stretch), but definitely worth the £28 price tag!
It was also worth using my voucher on to try this dress out.
If you are thinking of ordering this, I'd suggest sizing up, especially if you're a little on the busty side. But I will say one thing - you need to try this dress!
Much love my lovelies,
