Nautical But Nice

I took the plunge and finally ordered the Closet dress I have been banging on about.  I haven't been able to find anywhere local that stocks this dress and I really wanted to try it on in person.  Only being able to return items by post annoys me (apart from asos obvs but I have premiere so they come get it from me so that's different!) 

The Dorothy Perkins website recommends you go up a size in Closet and I had been warned that their sizing is on the tiny side.  If there is no stretch in the fabric I sometimes need to size up anyway so I don't end up with a bandaged breast effect and couldn't decide if it was worth the potential hassle.  BUT Dorothy Perkins took the decision out of my hands when they decided to tempt me further with offers of 20% discount and free postage - I just couldn't get it out of my head so I took the plunge... And I LOVE it!




I didn't like the pale pink belt that came with it and have decided that I need a red skinny belt to complete it.  It looks ace with tan accessories too and it has pockets! Perfection.

Are there any dresses that are taunting you at the moment?  What can't you just get out of your head?!

  1. Oh this is so nice! It fits perfectly on you.

    Luckily, I am not lusting over anything at the mo... I've not been looking at any websites in a bid to cut down my spending. Sure I'll slip up soon though!

  2. Omg pockets! The ultimate clincher for me when buying dresses [although i seem to own more without! :P]

    This is such a lovely style on you, and the stripes are stunning. I'm impressed with Dotty P's i have to say!

  4. oo, it's always so exciting when you buy something you've had your eye on for so long!

    I've got my eye on a dress in Topshop that's got the most beautiful detailing on it, but it's a creamy white, and with 2 in my closet in a similar colour already, they don't get enough wear as it is! it's just an impractical colour :/ and i can't use the excuse of a wedding for obvious reasons! hmmm. debating it still!
