Here are 5 thoughts I have had about this here Topshop dress

1. I saw this dress on the Topshop site. I wanted it. My friend Lauren was wearing it one weekend. I wanted it more. They had sold out on my size the website (story of my shopping life). I took a chance and bought the size up. Happy ending alert - it was a bit baggy but mostly fine. And I can cinch things in with the handy bow/belt. 

 2. I tried it on at home. Is it a bit gappy? Is it FLAPPING ABOUT? Is it too ruffled I wondered. Sure, ruffles are a THING atm, but is it too ruffled? There's a fine line between cute and tragic 80s. I debated with my friends via our whatsapp group, and we decided it was a good amount of rufflage. We decided the flappiness was acceptable.

3. It's not the most flattering of cuts is it? Surprising, as most wrap dresses are - just ask Gok Wan. I think it's the aforementioned ruffles - they make me look a bit kind of bunchy, ya know? A lot of fabric in the middle. On the plus side, it makes me want to hold a bunch of sunflowers and look whimsical.

4. As per my previous blog post re: being a scruff, this dress needs a good old iron. Seeing as I don't own an iron (something I have discovered that, post asking some of my friends  some extensive research, is common amongst us MILLENNIALS) there's not much I can do about that. 

5. This dress looks excellent with red accents and also I love these wedges. So much. And the bag is a delight too, even though I got black eye make up all over it after its first outing which I cannot remove for love nor money. Anyone have any handy tips on how to get marks out of straw? 


  1. This is such a cute combination! I love how feminine the dress is <3
