For a few weeks.
Then, I went into my local store, which is pretty tiny, and they had a picture of it on the wall, but not in stock. There was, the sales assistant told me, however, a huge % off promotion running, but it finished at midnight. I ummed and ahhed for a few hours, and then a rather lovely person ordered it for me, mostly to shut me up, I think. I was over the moon when it arrived and once I'd actually gathered up the courage to have a huge trying-on session, I couldn't wait for a chance to wear it.
And, a chance I got, on Sunday evening when I was given about five minutes to get ready for an impromptu evening out. Although it's a little low at the front for my liking, I wore a collar necklace and these studded heels to try and 'tough it up' a little. I also realised that due to the large bow detail at the back, it's impossible to wear a cardigan with this dress without looking like The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Not that it really mattered, though, as I had a coat with me and it was nice and warm in the restaurant.
To get around that in future, though, I'm wondering about layering it over a top or something, like they have here on the website, and finishing it off with something like this gold and jet necklace from Jon Richard..Do you think it would work?
