This dress is somewhat of a blogger favourite, Sarah wore it first back in November (and I loved it then) then when Alex posted about it at the end of January and it was in the sale, I caved. It is such a gorgeous dress and as well as getting so many nice comments about it (both online and off!), I know at least 3 people who bought it as a result of me being so excited about it. There's a stained glass dress wearing army out there! ;) I took Alex's advice and sized down a couple of sizes and it fits perfectly. I have avoided smocks up till now as I was worried about looking like a sack of potatoes but I will definitely be trying more (there's something I never thought I would be saying!) I'm not sure why I look so confused/grumpy in these photos, as I was super smiley for the whole day, perhaps it's the 5.00 am starts?!

A better look at that amazing stained glass print! I love unusual patterns and this is my favourite so far. Being raised a Catholic meant I spent a lot of time in churches growing up, so this is an oddly comforting sight for me. I could probably even make a guess at which saints are featured but I'm not that sad ;) You know that I love the colour red but I really wish I had a purple cardigan to go with this dress! Weirdly I don't have that much purple in my wardrobe and this cardigan just didn't look right, I think I need to track down more Cadbury purple for my wardrobe!
The look of love! I love the little sleeves on this dress (they make it way more work appropriate) and it is made of a gorgeous heavy jersey so is super flattering too. This fits just like a skater dress as I have sized down. Not bad for a mere £14 eh?! It is still available in a few sizes AND you can get it with am extra 20% off here with the code 20MORE, go go go!
What unusual prints have you got in your wardrobe?
