  11. I love the way you styled this dress the best out of the 10 probably... it's totally quirky with a bit dollop of glamour... Plus the shiny cream and dusty blue with the beige polka dots is a brilliant combo! Love everything about this outfit! xx

  27. Great addition. I love this dress but like I commented on Sabine's blog, Peacocks really needs to revamp it's design portfolio.

  29. I love the different ways this dress can be worn, it just goes to show that even though many people will buy and wear the same dress, it looks completely different on each person. Styled differently and accessorised differently. Brilliant post! xxx
