kite print dress: henry holland
This outfit is from a little while back now, although was the first time I'd worn these items; relatively new additions to the wardrobes, purchased on my recent trip to Birmingham, so perhaps they still count towards Only Once August?

I really like Henry Holland stuff, mainly because you always seem to be guaranteed a quirky print, but I can't help wondering if this dress is a little see-through. I think it's destined to always be worn over black tights. I'd seen it on a Take 10 challenge on some other blogs and really liked it, so was pleased to find one left in the Debenhams sale.

The blazer was a little random; I picked it up in New Life, where we'd stopped on the way. I didn't see any others and decided it was definitely worth it's £2.99 price tag! Then, when we were in Primark the following day, I was amazed to see the same blazers, still for sale at full price, so perhaps that one made it to New Life by mistake? Crazy.

  3. I debated buying this dress too- it's been all my local Debs branches but despite loving the shape, it's the yellow that puts me off- just not my colour! On you, however, it is very fetching!

  5. I remember this dress from the Take 10 Challenge, it's lovely. I would have been tempted to find one too but yellow just isn't my colour, more's the pity.
