New Purchases!

Following on from my wardrobe edit I have been shopping! So I thought I would share with you my recent purchases :)
This is the Wonder dress from French Connection. I saw it and thought it looked like the right shape but they only had a size 10 (US 6 I think) and I'm normally a 12. Anyhow I figured best to try it on, following Kate's advice, and so on it went, just.... It fits really nicely at the top but is very tight around the bottom. So I bought it anyway! Just in case there's not a 12 for me to try on somewhere else and exchange it with.

My next purchase was on Sunday. This is the same belt which Make Do Style has posted about before. Ideally I would have bought the Citrine belt but it seems they have sold out. So Coral it is. Belt from Karen Millen.

I'm therefore feeling quite excited about my purchases and hoping they're good ones for the future. Now to check J likes the dress and doesn't think it too tight and then we're away!

What a lovely dress! Black dresses should be easy to find, but I always struggle with it. Good job. :)

That dress is divine and I'm sure you look great in it (though I am conscious about the bottom fit too)!

Can't go wrong with that dress, a real investment buy and the belt will brighten up any outfit!

Fabulous LBD, will look great with some statement shoes.

Like them both, but word of warning re dress - I bought a similar dress from Reiss which was just a mm or two too tight round the derriere, and I never wore it because it never felt right.

So unless you're comfortable moving around, sitting down, walking etc. in it I would get back to the shop and change for a size that fits properly. You don't want to be stuck with something lovely that you can't wear!

love the bright belt. Will look ace with that dress

Make Do Style said...

Oh great! Fab buys and ref the dress if you can sit down all right in it then fine - if not take it back and get size 12. They can tell you what store it is in!

To all my lovely commenters, thank-you so much for your support of my choices.I took the dress back and got a size bigger and it still fits sleekly but is just a little comfier. Happy days :)

Onwards and upwards with my shopping now!
