A dress that screams “accessorise me”

Conversation Print Zip-edge dress €30 AwearI fell head over heels with this dress when I first saw it at the A|wear AW09 press preview. The pretty “Conversation” print on the sheer layer over navy lining; the asymmetric collar ruffles with gold bead edging; both the skirt and sleeve lengths are perfect for hiding all manner of sins and the elasticated waistband, all combine to make a dress that will become an integral part of my AW09 wardrobe.

After much anxiety, I spent the morning thinking it might have sold out or they wouldn’t have my size… Which, incidentally, drives me mad; when the store has the piece you want in every size but yours and when you ask the sales assistant to, oh I don’t know assist you and check, they reply with, “every size we have is out on the rails”. For some reason I NEVER believe them… I don’t know why, maybe because when I was a sales assistant in River Island I always, used to check?

Anyway, tangents aside, I bought the dress, which fitted perfectly and is so comfy, hence they did have it in my size. I’m going to wear it with knee-high socks and brogues for autumn; thick tights and boots for winter, and as far as I can tell I’ll probably still be wearing this dress next spring, you can see why I was so anxious to buy it and I’m over the moon with it. See what I wear for how it looks for autumn.
