Do you ever see an item of clothing and really really want it, but somehow never get around to buying it? That's what I was like with this dress. It's the Motel Rocks sun, moon and stars babydoll dress and I've been wanting it for months, maybe years, but somehow never bought it. I think it's because it's quite a simple shape, and now I'm sewing more, I'm put off buying things that I *could* make (even though I never will.) Then just before I went on holiday earlier this month, Motel had a 25% discount code, and I thought it would be great for holiday so I bought it. (Unfortunately, although I paid for next day delivery, it didn't come the next day, and I had to go without it!)
I'm really glad I did buy it in the end, as I'm in love with it now. The print is awesome, and it's so comfortable and easy to wear. It's also one of those "day to night" pieces, and will look good with black tights in the winter. I was worried the lace-up back might look a bit silly with a visible bra, but the gap is actually pretty small so I think it looks ok.
Jacket - New Look
Shoes - George at Asda
Motel have got another 25% discount on at the moment (BHWK25), until 9am Tuesday morning, so go and have a look. I've already bought myself another two dresses!
