It's not often I go loopy for an item of clothing but I just had to share this with you.
I ordered this gorgeous little Elephant Dress from the AskHerFriends website along with two other items - a present for a friend and another handbag - and didn't really take much notice of the seller (AHF is a crowd-sourced marketplace - read more about it here). It was a lovely surprise to find out that the dress had been stocked by fellow blogger, TigerLilly Quinn!
Because the sizing was a bit vague, I ordered a 'Large', crossed my fingers and thought that I could gift the dress to my daughter if it didn't fit me or didn't suit me. Well, there's no way she's getting her hands on it. I'm a size 16 and the 'Large' fits perfectly because of the slightly stretchy material.
I'm wearing it for work on Friday teamed with the boots I bought from the John Lewis sale, a boyfriend cardigan I've had for ages from Zalando and some trusty black leggings from Tesco. I'll also be wearing some cheeky Union Jack socks but you won't be able to see those!.
I've created a little mood board. What do you think?
