Le Blog de Sushi: Roman holiday

{ Roman holiday }

I thought that week three of Frocktober would be a great time to invest in a new dress as I'm running a bit low on options, especially when it comes to work outfits. I snapped up this shirt dress from the new Forever New collection as soon as I saw it. I love this dress because it's not fussy and feels like such a pretty, resort kind of piece that's perfect for a holiday (a la Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday of course) or hot summer day.

Over the past few days I've had two more donations from Lindsay and Heinekin - thanks so much for supporting my Frocktober! Can you believe it's already half over? I'm going to have to dig deep into my closet to find more dresses for the next two weeks!

P.S. Also here's a shot of my makeup from today, and how I've been wearing my makeup for the past week or so after being inspired by the Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 show.

Sushi this is the sweetest dress ever, I really think I am going to have to break my dress-ban for this one. It's such a lovely vintage-inspired style! <3 Is it sheer and needs a slip, or can it be worn on its own? x

Sigh, I typed up a reply and then it disappeared! That dress is SO pretty! The colours are so much nicer in your photos than the online store so I decided to check it out for myself. I love that the cotton has a slight sheen to it and that it is so soft! I also love, love, love the striped patterns on the top and border of the skirt. Ah! So happy with this dress. Thank you so much Sushi! If it weren't for you I would have given up on FN - I got sick of all of the chiffon and pastels!

Btw. If you don't mind answering, what size did you get? The store I went to only had a size 6 and it was perfect everywhere except a bit too much room in the bust... Not sure whether it is meant to be like that?
