The Cheap Monday draped dress

This dress is amazing. Simples.

I bought it in Weekday in Stockholm in April and it cost me about £40.

Honestly? Probably the best money spent this year. Although I can make this type of statement a lot.

It's simple yet interesting. Casual yet elegant. Day yet easily transformed to evening. And very very flattering.

Made of viscose - which admittedly doesn't sound very luxurious - it skims the body and has a pretty daring crossover styling at the front...which can get a little "Liz Hurley-revealing-a-whole-thigh-in-Versace" if you are not careful.

I just love it though. And it's so perfect for hot climates. It is the dress that can take you anywhere....although it only really took me to the mall....





...and for lunch at the Lime Tree Cafe.

  9. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, cup of tea in hand and catching up with all your recent posts, thanks to the heads up from Kelanjo that you're blogging again. Everything is written so well and an absolute pleasure to read, not sure my bank balance will like it though as my wishlist is getting longer the more I read, lol x

  16. Hey Laura, I was also wondering if you could tell us what size you bought? I really want this dress but its sold out in XS so I'm tempted to get the S even though its normally a little big on me.. Thanks!

  17. @Steppebreathe and @Rachel - I am a UK 8 and I got the small. you will always wear it belted so even if it feels a little bit big it still works! hope you like!

  18. love the dress! just looked it up on asos, and I was wondering (if you dont mind) telling me how tall you are? the dress seems almost to touch the ground when you wear it. whereas its above the ankle for the model?! I am about 5'10 so I was just wondering if I was too tall to wear it.

    Also fashion help: I just bought these: http://jackwills.com/Store/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductRef=010831&Option=010831099. They are a burnt red. What can wear with them?
