Worth the wait

I first spotted this dress a month or so ago on very and decided i needed to have it but i was going through my shopping ban at the time so i couldn't buy it. This didn't stop me stalking it on the website then last week i saw it was reduced from £25 to £12.50 and i knew it was now or never so i quickly added it to my cart and took up residence by the letter box waiting for it!
I love he diner print it has a very 50's america feel to it
I didn't have to wait long i ordered it Friday afternoon and by lunch time Saturday it was here, which was super quick delivery. I got the dress in a size 22 as the 24 was sold out, i was a bit unsure about the fit and thought it might be a bit tight but the dress has an elasticised back panel so i didn't need to worry. The straps are adjustable which is good but they are really thin and as i don't own a strapless bra i had to wear a cardigan. The dress is also lined and has pockets!! Although i never use pockets i like to have them.
I wore this dress to the cinema to see TED and then to visit my nan and mum later in the day. It was very comfortable and easy to wear and the print is just gorgeous isn't it?!

Something was reflecting on my lense
i dont have a misty eye






I really like the neckline on the dress so i thought i'd show
you a close up 
I wore this dress with primark flats and headscarf and the cardigan is new look inspire years ago. The bag is irregular choice I've had it a while it was last seen in this post. I'd recommend this dress to anyone its really lovely, i've had a look on the website but they only have size 8 and 10 left at £15 (if you are then i'd snap it up it won't be there for long)
I know a few bloggers have got this dress and the lovely Elena from frivolous mrs d has blogged about it too so go and see how she styled it.
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend have you been up to much?
XOXO
