w.i.w(ish i)w :: sweet scallops (+ an oasap giveaway!)





dress c/o oasap // belt :: primark // shoes :: topshop // cupcake brooch c/o polka dot dreams // icecream brooch :: the imagination of ladysnail // vintage lady brooch :: ladybird likes

when the friendly folk over at oasap asked if i'd like to be part of their fashion blogger program, i absolutely jumped at the chance. although i'd never bought from them before, they're big names in the bloggersphere, and 10,0000 women can't be wrong. amiright?

i was hardly into the second page of dresses when this blue woollen number caught my eye. bright blue with sweet scallops and adorable exposed pockets, i just fell in love with it instantly. i used the size guide and opted for the large over the medium, figuring that i would just belt it if it were too big - because of the a-line cut, i assumed the hips would be fairly free; well, that's what i gathered from the size guide anyway.

when it finally arrived, i ripped the parcel open - so buzzing to try it on with the accessories i'd already decided on styling it with. well, i was downright gutted when i did just that and discovered it was completely ill-fitting. the top was far too big - despite my larger-than-life chest, yet the arms were slightly tight, and the hips - well, let's just say, they were not free, and my bum was almost completely exposed. not ideal.

so, instead of send it back, i've decided to let one of you lovelies try your luck with it! as i mentioned, it is a large - the full measurments are here, but i would say it would fit someone who is a 10-12 without too much junk in the trunk - unlike moi. if that sounds like you, or you don't care and want to win it anyway, hit the rafflecopter below now! (competition will run until jan 1st, uk only i'm afraid)

and, if you can't wait that long, then here's a little 30% off code for you - free shipping too - just because i love you; 9ZZVHUK5.

  10. Did you hear about the giant who destroyed three countries on his holiday?
    He picked up Turkey, dipped it in Greece and fried it in Japan!

    (Yes, I've been telling that joke since I was 8 and it's still my best one!)

  11. A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: ''Ugh, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!'' The woman walks to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: ''The driver just insulted me!'' The man says: ''You go up there and tell him off. Go on, I'll hold your monkey for you.''

  14. Woke up to see a touch of frost on the front lawn - which was quite rude – I thought the DVD boxset was a good present for the mother in law.
