Take me back to when I was five….

Take me back to when I was five….

This is in the New Buys category but technically, I have not bought it yet but it’s on my list!  It’s just the sweetest Sonia Rykiel dress I’ve seen ever.  I want to wear it with frilly lace socks and velcro strap trainers so that I can go back to being five again.  It ticks all the right boxes for me, pockets, empire waist, bright colours to make me la-la-la happy.  Only problem?  The navy crochet bodice is too baggy on my sorry *ahem* excuse of a bust even with the smallest size.  But as payday has arrived, I think I can convince myself that layering the dress over shirts and tanks is the way to go and so…… off I go to part with £100 at Urban Outfitters where I tried it on.

    Maybe you could get a seamstress to take it in? It looks fab…

    Hi Danielle…indeed I am that susie_bubble! Thanks for stopping by! I could have it taken in – but it would probably cost as much as a third of what the dress cost…..seamstresses are pricey here! I still have not bought it yet…..I’m deliberating….
    Chris…Urban Outfitters here is VERY pricy compared to the ones in the States… I think they’re trying to go for the designer department store thing rather than become a high street chain……. kind of annoying actually!
