Falling like Dominos

I have been stalking eBay like a woman possessed recently in search of the Beth Ditto domino dress from her collection a few years ago with Evans. I hadn't been able to find the right size,when i did the bids were so high i couldn't afford them or like a complete idiot i forgot that a listing was ending.
The lovely Rebecca came to my rescue and asked if i wanted to buy her dress that she had just won from eBay but didn't fit right, i didn't have to be asked twice and said yes straight away!


Ever since i saw Lolly in her domino dress i knew i needed it in my life she looked absolutely amazing! So another big thank you to Rebecca for thinking of me before selling the dress to someone else :)

This dress is just perfect i love it so much ! There are no labels at all in the dress so i can't say what size it is but it seems to come up small from the reviews i've read so if you do spot one on eBay i think it may be best to size up.

The dress is made from a jersey material with a stitched in lining which i think helps it to sit right. I could talk about this dress all day the sleeves, the length, the print its just amazing!
I wore this dress to Lolly's birthday lunch and it was really comfy to wear and make me feel great.

The tights are from Primark ages ago as was the headscarf and i added a handmade brooch. The Little Mermaid is my favourite disney film and Ursula is one of my favourite characters so i made her into a brooch.

Do you obsess over an item until you own it ?

  2. I've had this dress for about 4 years but only worn it once. I can't get it to sit right on the shoulders. I thought it was just the cut, but from looking at you, perhaps mine is the wrong size! It looks fantastic and like you say, it's amazing quality. Tracking it down has paid off! :) x

  12. The Beth Ditto ranges are probably the most exciting thing that has ever and ever will happen to plus size fashion and I could kick myself for not buying it ALL when they were released, I've wanted this Domino dress for so long. I wish she would do another one, this Clements Riberio stuff is frumpy and boring just like the rest of the Evans stuff.

    1. I agree me too :) I've got the Peter Pan dress too and I had 2 others but they got too small so now my mum has 1 of them and she loves it ! :) I do like the CR stuff but some of my style is old fashioned I'd like to see a edgy collection again xx

  15. I bought this dress for my sister when it first came out, I really secretly wanted it for myself and was a bit gutted when she sold it for pennies on ebay a little while later - we don't really have the same style.

    1. It never stood out to me when it first came out but once I saw it on someone I had to have it! Aww that's sad I think if I had a sister I would have still kept it for myself xx
