The Orange Dress

The Orange Dress

 

The first time I laid eyes on this dress, I just knew I had to have it in my collection. It just felt like pure luxury for a fraction of the price. Its colour is kind of a burnt orange shade which I was yet to accumulate a dress in. It seemed like the perfect match.

The dress is kind of a jumper dress and so is made from the softest wool you have ever felt. Its the sort of wool that stays soft and isn’t ever scratchy. I decided to get it in a bigger size so that it felt more oversized and snuggly. The dress was purchased from Forever 21, who, in my opinion have very small sizing, so its not even like its swamping me! The roll neck goes up to the perfect hight too (just enough to cover my double chin! ;)). Looking at it, I really don’t think you would be able to tell it was a forever 21 piece. And I really don’t think that you would say that I paid £20 for it! Yes, you heard right £20. What a bargain if I do say so myself.

The dress hits my mid thigh and thats for a pretty short girl so if you were taller you might not get away wearing it with tights but whatever floats your boat!! I like it with black tights and black heels or some little red boots but it really is very versatile. I love how soft and cosy it is and it will definitely keep me warm transitioning from winter into spring. Although the colour is autumnal it will still look nice around this time of year.

So as for pictures, my sister and I had a little photoshoot at a hotel we recently stayed at so you may seen this in a few upcoming posts!!
