If you know me well, you’ll already know I’m not the type of girl to turn down the opportunity of buying a new frock.
Na. Not. Me.
I adore frocks, I adore the easiness of the one-piece/whole-outfit scenario.
It fits this lazy-ass’d girl to perfection.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my classic skinnies and blazer combo, BUT at this time of year when the QLD humidity has us all running for cover, a frock is 9 times out of 10, my first choice.
So when the lovely ladybug that is Kimba (I’ve so stolen the term ladybug totally from her) of Kimba Likes fame (if you were wondering, Kimba’s blog has been poorly for a few weeks, but I’m sure it will be back very soon) brought this frock to my attention a couple of weeks before Christmas – my eyes, well they nearly popped out of my head.
It had to be mine.
Yes. I know. Calm down Bev.
As soon as I laid eyes on it though – I just knew it was a ‘me’ dress. Pray tell me, you have these moments too?
Well Hello…who is strong enough to turn down that magical combination?
Not. Me. I tell ya.
And that’s without me even knowing the price.
Guess how much?
Go on….look at the pic, then close your eyes (no peeping now) and make a guess…yes, you have permission to talk to the screen at this point 😉
To be honest, I couldn’t believe the price.
$59 – yes. Fifty-nine bucks!
Who would have thought it possible.
A throw on maxi WITH POCKETS for a snip.
It’s the most versatile dress too:
- Wear it nipped in with a belt.
- Add a heel and a statement necklace for extra glam.
- Wear it over your ‘kini to the beach.
- Wear your hands in the pockets constantly, because pockets are just the BEST.
Perfect dress for a summer’s day, light, cool and stunning.
So, like you would expect from any good fashion loving bird – I did no more than jump online and place my order.
Blame Kimba – it was all her fault 😉
I had to pre-order as St. Frock were still waiting for the dress to arrive in stock.
Pre-order is fine by me. In fact, I find it more than a bit exciting. It also makes me feel special…like I know something everyone else doesn’t!
Although, when I pressed ‘buy’ in my head this was my Christmas Day frock…I pictured myself
guzzling sipping on an ice cold champers with my loves on Christmas morning wearing this stunner – but what if it didn’t arrive in time for the big day?
The website said it was arriving online 15 December – with the Christmas post that was cutting it mighty fine.
Stress and clothes don’t go together in my book.
So, of course I did the only other sensible thing possible in the situation, and buy another frock!
Which I actually ended up wearing on Christmas Day instead, purely because I couldn’t choose between the two on the morning. Yes, the dress arrived on the 22nd December.
I loved them both!

Do you have a stand out colour when it comes to buy a frock, a colour that makes you stop in your tracks?
Did you wear a frock on Christmas Day?
