You know me - I love a little denim dress. Last year, I found a lovely looking shift dress from Topshop which I showed off proudly in this post and then found myself returning it based on the fact that it was too short.
Look what I found! Another almost identical one! But this one is from Dorothy Perkins and is in a light denim/chambray type fabric which is what I really wanted the Topshop one to be.
Get this. It's even shorter than the Topshop one and am I fussed? Not too much providing I don't bend over to pick anything up and I also don't try to reach anything on the top shelf of the supermarket aisle. Either way the result is the same (cue much blushing). Besides, the summer of 2013 put paid to all my fears of not wearing anything unbecoming of a 40 something mum with chubby knees.
I was too hot to care.
So if anyone out there likes little blue denim shift dresses, can I say, this is rather cute and very comfortable. It is rather short though and I'm saying that as a bonafide midget. However if you are as tall as tall can be, you can wear it as a tunic. I read one of the reviews for it which said "nice top" (chortle chortle).
Anyway, take some inspiration from this girl ....
... and you can see why I love little denim dresses. I want to look like this when I'm re-incarnated. I'd like to pass on coming back as a cat or a dog. You get rank food.
But I am sorry to say, it is sold out online. And you will have to look in store. And if you strike quick and lucky - you can get it for £17.50 instead of the recommended price of £25 whilst Dotty P's have a promotion on.
Last Note :
- Dress product code is 70261949. You could always ring your local store - I've done it before and they've been pretty obliging. Besides, I know some of you are pretty hard core and will track something down if you really want it enough. And there's nothing like saying "sold out online" to get the bloodlust going is there?
- Joanna mentioned that I should start wearing some of the clothes that I stash away. She has a point. But I think I can get away with not wearing this just yet as I bought it for the summer. So there! I didn't break my resolution exactly.... I think :o?
- This one is also kind of cute in a Kirsten Dunst/Carrie Mulligan kind of way. It comes up big though. Size down for a body flattering fit. Stay your own size for a food flattering fit. Would be cute with some pointy sling backs a la fifties style.
