Lion Print Smock Dress: ASOS / Shoes: eBay / Necklace: Primark
I love lions. I love dresses. So what’s not to love about this lion print dress?!
I’d been after a smock dress for a while now, though I wasn’t really sure whether they’d suit me seeing as they have a tendancy to be a bit swampy and I’m approximately the size of a Borrower. ASOS always have a good selection of them in though, and once I saw this printed version I fell in love and decided to bite the bullet and try it out.
I’ve teamed the dress with my new eBay sunglasses which I LOVE with the passion of a thousand men (a thousand passionate men, I hasten to add… a thousand passionate Latin men with stomachs full of tequila). They were only £3.99 and can be nabbed here if you too want to embrace a bit of steampunk eyewear.
So, back to the dress… I decided to size down to a size 6 and let me tell you, it is still bloody massive. I know it’s meant to be loose fitting, but I actually laughed out loud – a genuine, bonfide LOL – at how huge it was when I got it out of the packet. I suppose I should see this is a good thing though, as if we forget to pay our rent and get evicted then at least there’s definitely enough room for me, Lauren and the Bonus Jonas to all live inside my dress. I mean, really…
It’s a biiiiiiiiiiiiiit ridiculous maybe? I know some girls look amazing in these dresses, but I’m not sure my petite frame can really pull it off. I do adore the lion head print though so I may persevere. OH WHO THE HELL KNOWS.
What do you think of this outfit?
