I have to admit, this isn't a style of dress I would normally look twice at - it's oversized and it doesn't nip in at the waist nor flare out at the hips which are two staple design features I tend to stick to as the rule to flatter my figure. But actually I'm glad that the mix of materials in this Lavish Alice dress caught my attention because its actually really nice on and I loved wearing it - lesson learnt here kids, screw the 'rules' sometimes! Lavish Alice are on point with their designs this season - the gorgeous giraffe dress has already done the blogger rounds but there's lots more amazing stuff to spend your pennies on.
Here marks the first outing of my second pair of 'ugly-pretty' sandals too - these TK Maxx beauties have a hint of orthopaedic straitjacket about them but I adore them - they're so comfy and they go with just about everything. I've seen some similar ones in a holographic metallic colour as well, they might very well have to be my next purchase!
