Before writing this post, I had a chat with my boyfriend about how he thinks he inspired the purchase of this dress.
He wasn’t with me at the time, but he always likes to dress himself in bright colours and slightly more outrageous things. Whether he’s right or wrong, I certainly felt like I stood out in this dress – one, for the colour, and two, for the length. Being so tall, a lot of summer dresses are borderline indecent on me. This one is a bit touch-and-go, but I couldn’t face a day in London on the hot tube, in and out of shops and battling Oxford Street in tight jeans.
The dress is scuba material, so I like that it’s a loose fit. I stupidly forgot to snap it without my jacket on, but it has slightly longer than average tshirt sleeves and is a pretty basic shift. Teamed with my Converse, I felt like it looked quite casual and young. And best of all, I picked it up really recently for just £15 down from £35. Fun and cheap – winner!
