This looks like a really great dress for the party season: blue velvet but with a decent length skirt.
SOH has already said ‘You smell nice.’ three times since yesterday so I would call this little pick-me-up a winner.
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.
I do love a good t-shirt dress: wear it with sneakers around the house and while running errands, dress it up with a cute bag and mules for a relaxed evening on a terrace somewhere in town. And this rust colour definitely makes a nice change from the black and navy varieties.
So, that lovely Massimo Dutti dress from this post unfortunately turned out to be one for the ‘total miss’ category: due to its shape it simply looked like one giant sack on me, despite the size being correct.
I am not into chain handbags. Nor am I into gold hardware. So this makes absolutely zero sense: I SO like this cross body…I keep going back to the website to have a little stare at it.
