Dotty About Dahlia

I won this little beauty on eBay a couple of weeks ago and am still excited about it!  Its by Dahlia from a couple of seasons ago, I chose a floral dress in the same cut over this polka dot one and have regretted not buying both ever since.  I check eBay most days for Dahlia stock and haven't been able to find this dress in my size until now.  It was definitely worth waiting for.  I LOVE IT!!



Dress: Dahlia

Don't you just love it when you finally get your hands on something you've wanted for ages and it turns out to be as perfect as you hoped it would be.  Doesn't happen very often for me, normally if I have had to hunt high and low for something I have usually built it up so much in my head that it ends up being full of disappointment. 

Thanks for all your input on my latest keep or return... I decided to return.  What you couldn't tell from the photos is how annoying the underskirt is when I moved.  It totally ruined the look of the dress and I decided it wasn't worth the annoyance.  Such a shame as I really loved the print and colours of the dress and it would have been perfect for the summer.

What are your plans for this weekend?  I am hoping we will get more good weather so I can do lots of walking and chilling out and I'm going to the Gadget Show on Sunday, very excited!!
