I originally saw this dress on Elisabeth’s blog and loved both the print and the collar. I had some concerns – namely whether or not it would cover my arse – and sizing. This dress is from a brand called “Glamorous” and I haven’t had any previous dealings with them. It’s always tricky to guess how a brand will cut their clothes.
After ordering it I would say that my concerns were valid:
1) It does cover my bum but there is absolutely no denying the fact that this is short. And you cannot bend over in it under any circumstances.
2) It does run small. I ordered a 10 and I really should have ordered a 12. I don’t like things that feel too close, particularly when it’s excruciatingly hot outside.
Despite its flaws I really enjoy wearing this. The high neckline goes some way to apologise for the acres of thigh that are on show and there is something really lovely about the print. The fabric itself is much lighter and cooler than I thought it would be. With the current temperatures this is of course a good thing.
As soon as I put this on I thought how amazing it would look with boots, 1000 denier tights and a leather jacket. I have got a fair few months until I can make that a reality but I am looking forward to it!

Next up is a post about sunglasses and then one beauty related. I am having something of a love affair with more of Louise Young’s brushes. As you know I am not totally convinced that brushes are an interesting topic to cover but I may just put you through it anyway :)
