When I saw this dress on the Simply Be website, I had visions of wearing it to the office, for smart days, or days when I needed a bit of a pick me up.
It happened to arrive in time for my business trip to London, where I'd made some plans to meet a few pals throughout the week for dinner, and knew I wanted to dress to impress, so this dress was carefully thrown into my suitcase, and off I went!
I was over the moon by the fit of this dress. The length is the perfect midi on me, and the heavy crochet over lay to the dress added structure and volume, although it did make me think of the roadwork fencing material:
I know a lot of people would have looked at the dress and thought it was the perfect dress for Valentines day, but the fact I've never had Valentines plans means that never crossed my mind - I was, however, super happy with the early mini Gal-entines dinner I had with Tanya, Katt, Lottie and Em. The perfect tonic.
The beautiful Charli has recently picked up this dress, and while I'm rocking the roomy 24, Charli has sized down to the 16 for figure hugging amazingness:
Keep an eye out on her blog for her review in the coming days.
Much love my lovelies,
