Black and white bow dress £38. I haven't tried this on yet, but it's the same style as the one below, so should be fine.
Boat print dress £38. I really like this dress, but the boat print is a little odd. In real life they look even more obviously like boats than in the picture which is a quirky, but I still like the dress. The sleeves are a little shorter than I usually go for, but overall it's a flattering look as it has a tie back which pulls in under the bust / at the waist and the length is just right on me as I'm a lot shorter than the model.
I don't really know why I was so attracted to this next dress - mid green is not a colour I usually wear much and I certainly don't make a habit of wearing sleeveless clothes, but I really couldn't resist this. It's a lovely heavy linen type material and has a great layered pleat section peeking out at the bottom with a bow tie to the front to top it off. Plus I have shoes just like the ones on the model, so I think it put a look in my head. Not sure where I'll wear this or what I'll do about the arm situation. Wearing a top underneath or a cardigan over the top could spoil the overall look but we'll see. It was really quite flattering on, other than the arms. £40
I bought a dress / tunic similar to this from asos but it was hideously clingey on. This one's a nicer print and has more dramatic shoulders. It hasn't arrived yet so I haven't tried it on but I've ordered it in a 16 so hopefully there will be no cling issues. £22.
Finally I got this butterfly tea dress. I thought it was really pretty and it plays up to my butterfly fetish, but when I tried on it was just too long on me and I felt a bit granny-ish and not in a cool vintage 1940s kind of way, so this is going back for a refund.
The new summer stuff is now online, and these are the bits I'm considering getting.
I really like the print on this dress and the layering too, but I'm worried about the length. May need to see if it comes in petite. £45.
This bow dress covers off my other fetish, but again it looks really long. £35
And finally I think this dress is absolutely stunning. I really like it with the belt too. It's like a lacey black material overlayed on pink. It's £59 but it is really pretty and not too long either. I think I might try it on when I next go shopping to see if I think it's worth the money.
