Recently Chi Chi London got in touch to see if I wanted a dress. I don't actually accept everything I'm offered through this little blog because, seriously, I think it's more honest to gratefully decline if something genuinely doesn't work for me. I'll be truthful: at first I thought Chi Chi wasn't my style.
But then I saw this dress. Navy blue and gold, beautiful print, tulle underskirt, Peter Pan collar... what's not to like? Reader, I emailed them back saying "yes please, you guys." YES.
This dress fits very nicely although it does come up small: I'm wearing a 14 for reference (because I didn't think I would get my boobs in the 12, naturally.) It's beautifully made with thick material and a full silky lining and four layers of tulle underneath the skirt which really makes it stick out. It's been a while since I went full on PRINCESS MODE but it feels good!
WHAT I'M WEARING
*gifted to meeeeee
I wore this last night to go and have dinner at Aqua at the Shard, which was seriously awesome. We were lucky enough to have a table right by the window and the view was incredible. Damn, London is one heck of a beautiful city.
Also: how awesome are my amazing star vintage earrings? I bought them on eBay a decade ago and they've been one of my very favourite pieces of jewelery ever since. Totally subtle.
Speaking of eBay, I've been having a huge clearout over the last couple of months. It's been good to get rid of some clothes and make some extra money! I will have more bits for sale soon so make sure to add me to your favourite sellers. Collect Plus generously sponsored my clear out by giving me some free codes for shipping. It was really easy to set up and print out the labels online and my nearest dop off for the parcels is literally over the road. While they did give me some shipping for free, I've kept using it afterwards because it's just SO EASY. Thanks, Collect +!
