Cactus Life

Inspired by the little cacti pots I bought recently, this dress from & Other Stories caught my eye. I'm not sure it is blatantly obvious that the print on the dress is cacti (probably a good thing) but I particularly liked the design of the dress. A round, gathered neckline, long flowing sleeves and a nipped in waist seem to suit my body shape particularly well (hiding the bits that need to be hidden!) And you'll be pleased to see that I haven't killed these little plants off, since I last posted about them.

  3. Hi. Love this dress on you. Just wondered whether you found the fit is true to size? I can't get it online in my size 10 and wondered about the merit of going up or down a size? Advice would be appreciated.

    1. I did find it true to size. Or at least it suited my body shape (small waist, larger hips, broad shoulders). Even though I have a small middle, it is quite a snug fit so I would definitely try going up a size, unless you are incredibly petite.

  4. Thanks, Paula. Very helpful. Just found your blog and looking forward to having a good read through this evening. Love your use of colour in photos!
