An oldie but i love it

Toady's dress is one i got from Evans about 2 years ago, i remember wandering in on the off chance and seeing this on the sale rail. I was drawn to it straight away and when i tried it on i fell in love. I still love this dress 2 years later, it's really comfortable and i really love the shape. It's made from a jersey material but unlike other dresses i have had it hasn't bobbled or lost it's shape along the way and thats why i love it.

Had my eyes shut but i like the pic so it stayed
The dress has a really lovely floral print and is cut so the material covers the top of your arms but it doesn't have sleeves so it keeps you lovely and cool. I wore my oversized bow headband and tights with it, i was going to add a brooch but i didn't have time to hunt in my collection before i went out. The dress is a size 20 and still fits me well even though i am now a 22. As i bought it so long ago its no longer in the stores but I'm sure it will pop up on ebay if you wanted one. I'm sure this dress will be in my wardrobe for years to come.

Do you keep clothes for a long time or do you change your wardrobe with the seasons?
I hope you all have a great weekend.
XOXO

  4. I do love a floral print, that shape looks great on you, gives you a great waistline! This going to sounds like an old lady comment but I find clothes just don't last like they used to - even expensive pieces, maybe I'm just to hard on my wardrobe I do tend to stick to my favourites x

  5. That's such a pretty dress! Really love it on you. If I love a particular dress or accessory etc I'll keep hold of it for years and keep wearing it. Some things were made for rewearing and this is definitely one of them! xx

    1. Me too I like new things but I do keep clothes for ages so I like to get the oldies out every once in a while xx

  8. if it still fits and I still like it, it stays. if not, it goes in the box for ebay. Sometimes clothes stay in the ebay box for so long that I either fit in it again or I like it again so it goes back into my wardrobe :)
