Sunshine days are here… well almost… and nothing screams sunshine then Yellow! in no particular shade (really) just all shades sunshine yellow. The year after year Spring colour Must have.
It is funny when I see ‘Yellow is 2017 Spring must have’ Err… well Yellow was Spring 2016 must have, is this Springs’ must have and will most certainly be Spring 2018 must have…get my point?! Yellow truly is the colour for every single Spring..
so feel free to go right ahead and invest in some killer yellow pieces because you will get your moneys worth 🙂 Like we need any more reason to splurge.. right?
I admit that I tend to always buy yellow every Spring to add to what i already have.
I try to make a point of buying at least one ‘wow factor’ yellow dress… though admitedily the colour yellow helps make most dresses scream ‘wow’ I have brought or have made a ‘wow factor’ yellow something every year for as long as I can remember. Yellow works well with my skin tone and was originally my favourite colour as a youngster.. but shhh don’t tell that to red!:)
Ok on to todays post and my FIRST ‘WoW’ yellow dress for spring 2017 (it IS likely more will soon follow;) A very low invested dress from Asos.. backless, plunging neckline, criss cross side detailed, long pleated dress, with 2 slips for good measure. For such a dress one would expect to pay a good amount for it, but I did say it was a very low investment, but what I should really say is that it was an absolute crazy bargain.. a £12 bargain to be exact.. with a fit that is pretty O K, (ok its not perfect but you can’t have it all for 12 quid common haha)
Now I am a UK8 pretty much everywhere and as this is a ‘petite’ dress so i ordered a UK size 10, it was way too big, I then tried the UK8, still too big. I ended up with the Size 6, the smallest size they had at the time, which is still a tad loose but for £12 I thought ‘ah what the heck I’m keeping ya!’ 🙂 and I’m glad i did, its such a fun dress that gave me an instant happy feeling without feeling too exposed even though its quite revealing being backless and uh-hum frontless. #DontTellMyDaughter
As you see I opted to also go all yellow with the peep toe court shoes. Teamed up with the wooden bag I lusted for for so long , and my oh so fabulous (dangerously solid) boater hat I got from Sweden.. and that my loves completes my first official Spring look for the blog.. I hope you like it as much a i clearly do 🙂
More Spring Styling coming right up so stay tuned, especially styling this fab Gaias Ark wooden bag that makes me feel oh so girly! Even being an ‘IT’ bag (which admittedly i try to avoid these days) I just couldn’t resist, I love it so.. and is definitely a must have for sunny days 🙂
As always details are below.. and as of the time of this post being published, the dress is available in sizes 12, 8, and 4 (I would have got the 4 if it was available at that time) Remember it runs 2 sizes too big 😉
Till Next Time,
