Dressed Up To The Nine (lives)

Last week the lovely Louise from Polka Spots And Freckle Dots joined twitter we had been chatting and she had tweeted that she was planning to post about the Ax Paris cat print dress. I had been tidying out my wardrobe recently and noticed that my dress still had the tags on, so i needed to wear it. I suggested that we do a joint post to show you all how we both styled it.


I love Louise's blog and she has a wardrobe i am envious of, lots of pretty dresses with some amazing prints and patterns !
I bought this dress months ago when it first came out and i think i paid about £30 but to be honest i can't remember exactly. I really love the print and the dress itself but i got all panicky that i would ruin it if i ever wore it so its just been sitting pretty in my wardrobe.

I wore the dress with a Asda cardigan that I've had for a while, some Irregular Choice shoes and Tesco tights.

I bought this dress in a 24 as i needed to size up for the top to fit comfortably because of this the waist is a little big on the dress but its still very pretty and i would prefer the waist to be a little big than not be able to breathe because the top was too tight.

The dress is now out of stock on the website but i do hope they bring another version back this summer maybe with a different animal print on.
The dress has a silky feel to it and it lined so i won't be going see through in the sun, and it has a lovely flare to the skirt that makes it perfect for twirling.
Thats my take on the dress now pop over and see how Louise styled hers Louise's Blog.

Do you keep things for best out of an irrational fear of spoiling them like me?
XOXO

  3. You look fabulous and I LOVE how you've styled it. The cardi is so cute, and the heels go perfectly with it! I had to size up, too, but I usually do with dresses with fitted waists as I hate feeling uncomfortable when clothes are too fitted. I can't keep dresses for best, I like wearing them every day- even if I'm just lying in bed. If I left them for best they'd never get worn! Lol. Oh, by the way, I tried the ASDA flamingo cardi against the dress and think they go well together. Remember you having that cardigan too xx

  5. I bought this dress last summer too and wore it solidly for about a week then it was relegated to the back of my wardrobe when the cold weather came, can't wait to get it out again cos it is the perfect summer dress.

  12. I love the outfit, that dress and cardigan go so well together!
    I used to be the same and keep things for best, then one day realised that if I didn't start to wear some of the 'best' things, I'd spend my life wearing the things which I didn't really like and may as well not have the things which were my favourites.
