He, he! I've been to Brighton again! One of the fantastic things about Brighton (there are many!) is the street art, this photo op was too good to pass up! Although I didn't count on being up staged in my OOTD ...fair play to her she is a gorgeous auburn haired beauty!
Another great thing about Brighton is having the chance to dress up. On this occasion I broke out my new swallow print bird dress from New Look. This was a rather guilty purchase, since I bought it (on-line!) just before Christmas for myself! (ooh I'm so naughty!) I'm so glad I did! Anyhow on-line this dress looks pink. but it really is a salmon colour. It happens to go with my salmon cardi, also bought from New Look, last year. I think an advantage of buying things from certain shops is their
helpful wallet emptying way of stocking 'things that go with other things'!
Still this dress is great, it's made from a casual jersey, it's easy to dress down and is warm and well constructed, plus it has pockets (I'm really warming to pockets...my hands are too!) The gathering at the waist is stretchy and drapes really well. I ordered a 24 but I could have got away with a 22 easily, I guess that's one of the downfalls of not having a new look close by, It's not easy for me to try on now :-( This dress has been washed and I'm happy to report it washes and dries well (Iron not needed, woop!) Overall this dress is a big win!
This dress is available here. in some sizes (incidentally the one that appears pink is salmon and I spyed the blue one today instore which is actually green, confusing eh?!)
