Le Blog de Sushi: Outfit du jour

{ Outfit du jour }

So this is what I wore to my first day interning at Nicole Fendel Jewellery. It's really interesting to see how everything is run behind the scenes and Nicole is lovely (as is the other intern who recognised me from my blog)!

The dress I wore is a gift from wholesale-dress.net, an online clothing wholesaler that sells super cheap clothes, shoes and accessories. For $7.00 this dress is surprisingly comfortable and a great fit, so no complaints there!

I may or may not have gone on a thigh high sock buying spree and purchased four pairs from the Asos sale. Ok, well I did, but I only have this pair of black ones which I've worn to death and I absolutely need a medium grey, dark grey, choc brown and back up black pair so it was well justified.

Definitely worth it
Over-knees are gorgeous and if you have the legs to look great in them, why not make the most of it?

Congrats on the internship!

Thanks for the heads up about Wholesale Dress, those prices are amazing! I love how you've continued the white and dots of the dress with the scarf.

I love the tight high socks and the button detail on the your sleeves. You remind me of a Sailor Moon character and I love it!

dEJOISS - Du jour means 'of the day', and as I couldn't think of a more creative title I just called the post 'outfit of the day' x Sushi

Sarah - Haha I used to LOVE sailor moon! Thanks for that ;)

awww how cute do you look?! I almost bought some thigh highs too, as I don't own any but then I chickened out... ;p;

This is such a lovely outfit! I love all of the pieces on their own, but they work so well together! The scarf layered over the longer necklace is a great idea.

hey! I loooove this dress and I went to check out the website because the low prices obviously peeked my interest, but I was wondering: the fit on you is VERY different from the fit on the model in the pictures. Did you alter it in any way?

Reply
Sushi said...
on

Francesca - Thanks :) I'll check it out now x Sushi

Annabeth - Nope, I didn't alter the dress at all. I think it looks different because I pushed the sleeves up, didn't wear the waist belt that came with it and am probably much taller than the model (who looks super tiny and petite). Hope that helps! x Sushi

You asked me where I'd bought my Birkin look-a-like! I bought it in a shop in Antwerp, Belgium, Europe (haha). Not really nearby your home unfortunately :( X, Naomi

PS: Lovely dress!

I really love the dress! And for seven bucks?!? I checked out wholesale.net and I'm wondering how long the shipping etc takes? Would be great if you could let me know because I think I'm gonna order something from there as well! Thanks!

Michele - The shipping is a little on the pricey side but sent by courier so it's very fast. Mine only took a few days to be delivered :) x Sushi

Hi there, thank you for the review. How was the lifespan of this dress? Did the fabric pill at all?

Hi There, I just spent a little time reading through your
posts, which I found entirely by mistake whilst researching one of
my projects. Please continue to write more because it’s unusual that someone has
something interesting to say about this. Will be waiting for more!
