The Sister Jane Printed Dress

I did pause when I first got this dress. I loved the peter pan collar and the sleeves but wasn't the print just a bit....Tommy Bahama?

Well as it happens this turns out to be a good thing. The casual shift fit, the high neck and the crazy ass print are all very welcome by me. There was a moment of "omg this is far too short" when I sat down in the cab but I soon got over that but strategically using my bag to cover the acres of thigh.

I wore this to a KOTON Spring/Summer preview at The Story bar last night. The Story is one of those places that everyone seems to be talking about at the moment. It's a rooftop bar at the top of the Holiday Inn in Media City. Okay it doesn't sound glamorous but the atmosphere is cool and the view amazing. I am a sucker for sunsets and this is a great location to enjoy a spectacular one.

KOTON is a Turkish brand and I know it's in a few locations in Europe and also throughout the Middle East. Price point wise, think New Look. There is a floral dress, a denim shirt with detailing and a languid black jacket I now have my eye on so watch this space!

Could I look any more mardy?

BTW the girl in the photo above is Natalie - she is Dubai based and has a fashion and beauty blog you should definitely check out. I love her style.  Link!

  12. Hi, Laura, I can see that even when you are standing you are still trying to hide your legs :) if you have everything in place I think you should feel ok with your short dress darling :) I know this brand, they do make very nice clothes, I wish they had their branches here in Ireland too. Seeing that very familiar building in the background makes me assume that you are in Dubai right? the view from the terrace is gorgeous. <3 Zhanna, www.stylehenge.com

  22. Totally besotted with this dress, especially the print which looks far better from a colour perspective on your photos than on ASOS.
    Btw I bought the silver heels - aren't they fabulous, thanks a million for the tip!
    Hugs xoxo

  23. This isn't a dress I would have picked if I saw it on ASOS, however seeing it here on you makes me want it! The print is so nice!
