Paisley Smock Dress

 With the #100dayshoppingban still in full swing it has really made me turn to my wardrobe and wear what i already have. Take this Asos Paisley Dress. I’ve had this dress since last October and i know that thanks to the power of blogging (eh perk of diarising everything you buy/wear hey), you see i bought it with this dress i wore in that outfit post. I immediately loved the red one but was a little unsure of the paisley. Its very loud, and i think i was a bit self conscious of that (which is bizarre seeing as i used to dress like a rainbow had just spewed me up!) But in the wardrobe it hung and i did like it but never enough to put on. Fast forward to yesterday where we are having some first glimpses of Spring, the skies are blue and the weather is mild, and suddenly i just felt like wearing it.
And you know what , i freaking loved it!

The dress is made of that stretchy comfy fabric and is a swing dress so no clingy-ness which was perfect for all the pancakes i consumed (oh my god i can’t stop, even today i have had 2 more!! someone please call a pancake intervention before i put 2 stone back on!).

Now i kind of want to wear it again and again, so thanks #100dayshoppingban for making me shop my own wardrobe. i own some nice stuff…who knew!! 

So, ‘fess up, have you ever bought something and not worn it for a realllly long time?

And an even more important question, pancakes, favourite topping? 

I can’t decide if im a nuttela girl or a lemon and sugar, so i’ve been eating multiples of both to try and decide. I’ll let you know the outcome on that one…

    Guilty as charged. In fact, I'm sending a brand new dress in the next round of swapping. I'm actually enjoying the spending ban at the moment, feel all pleased that I've got to day 58!
