Outfit of the Day: Lion Print Smock Dress

Fashion Blogger Smock DressLion 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.

Fashion Blogger Smock DressI’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…

OOTD 13th April 5It’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?

    I think you look great in it! I spotted this on the ASOS website too and I absolutely love the print, but I’m just not really a smock dress kinda gal. xx

      Aw thank you 🙂 I think it’s the length combined with the smock shape that I’m unsure of the most, would really love it if it was just a bit shorter! The print is beautiful though, would be great to see it on a few other pieces xx

    you really suit that dress, i think you need to have a petite frame like yours or you can look massive in them! the lion print is ah-maz-ing!

      Aw thank you I was so worried about it swamping me and making me look about 6 sizes bigger. You’d definitely pull it off 🙂 xx
