Good things come to those who wait

I am in love with all things red, so when I saw the gorgeous ladies Rachel from A dress is for life and Mhairi from Lilybobombs, sporting this Simply Be beauty before Christmas, it was immediately on my lust list.

However, the price pretty much stopped me from buying it, £68 for a jersey dress seemed a bit steep. I spent hours trawling  the internet for something similar, but nothing came close. Then it was reduced so I bought it, but it was a bit too small so I sent it back with the intention of ordering another size, when I spotted the same dress, for a fraction of the price, here... it was fate.

The dress is a stunning colour and pretty much lived up to all of my expectations. It's very booby, which for work wasn't overly appropriate, hence the safety pin, but it's so soft and lovely to wear, perfect to brighten up the most miserable of February days. With my specs on, I feel a bit sexy Secretary....
