Scratch yesterday’s dress shall we? Because this one from Arket just screams ‘You will wear me for years and years to come.’
Let me start by saying that of my last 5 Zara orders I kept exactly zero pieces. It was just that bad. And so I actually went into the store last week to see if that would help: seeing the clothes with my own two eyes first and trying them on then and there.
It says on the website the colour of this fab looking dress is dark green. Now, I hate it when this happens: on the photo it really looks more like, I don’t know, teal maybe? Which to me is on the blue spectrum. Only way to find out is by actually ordering it, as there is now no longer a Massimo Dutti brick & mortar store in my hometown. Argh!
I looooooove the look of this dress but here is the thing: my experience with Arket is that it can be very much
This looks like a really great dress for the party season: blue velvet but with a decent length skirt.
I ordered this as a back-up dress for a special occasion that takes place today and fell in love with it the minute I put it on.
Nope, not going to buy this, unless it shows up as a sales item with a hefty discount, but is this not just one of those dresses to get years and years of wear out of?
So before I start on this lovely dress purchase (on sale now!) from & Other Stories I want to ‘bitch’ a little about shopping at brick & mortar shops these days. I ordered this dress online as with most of my stuff now, because long lines at fitting rooms and snotty staff are just too much to handle for me, not to mention the fact I get actual panick attacks when it gets really crowded in town.
