w.i.w.t | they call me mellow yellow

jacket : just jeans | dress c/o sammy dress | shoes : mr p | crown : primark | tote c/o alibi

this is supposed to be a maxi dress; and according to the sammydress website it is also supposed to be 94cm across the bust - which i should definitely be able to fit in, and comfortably too, yet for some reason... this dress, does not fit. when i tried it on i just about heard the seams under the bust all but rip, and watched the fabric stretch to a point that you could see white through the colour. disappointed is not the word i would use, probably more 'expected', as i don't seem to have much luck with the online dress buying. but, when you follow the size guide and still get led on, well... i was very disappointed.

especially because how cute does this outfit loooook? and this weekend was so bright and sunny i was really looking forward to getting it on and watching it billow around me feet. but nope. no such billowing happened, well, not in this number anyway. it's a good thing i know a few teeny tiny people who might just enjoy this dress themselves, because then at least i will have the opportunity to watch it billow on someone...

online shopping huh... what a nightmare!

  1. Such a shame, I love the skirt, it's so pretty. This outfit would have been so pretty on you. This is the problem with online shopping some times. Shame when measurements don't come through. Those shoes are awesome xx

  3. I do think the information on these sites is not to be trusted - I've had so many disasters with length and a lot which haven't fitted.

  4. Awww that's such a shame, I absolutely hate when things you buy online turn out to be not quite what you expected - especially because organising returns is the WORST.

  5. What a shame! It looks like a lovely dress, I hate when dresses don't fit, when clearly they would if the were the correct size (as advertised). xx

  7. You have the knack of putting together the loveliest outfits - hopefully you'll rock more yellow over the summer!
    On a slightly more anxious note - I'm awaiting two skirts from SammyDress so really hoping they fit when they arrive!! xx
