Hurrah! The first Autumn post of this year! I’m probably jumping the gun and we’ll have some massive late heat-wave, but do you know what? I don’t care! I’m over summer and it’s crappy will-I-won’t-I attitude. Thinking that we should be grateful when it deigns to smile some sunshine down on us for ten minutes. No thank-you British Summertime! Sod off and let Autumn-Winter claim its rightful place. At least we can expect the worst with AW and pack an extra cardie in our bags!
Here’s my favourite Autumn dress – or should I say, summer to autumn transitional dress. Because it looks great with bare legs, but it’s going to look even better with black tights and a pair of killer boots! The above photo is poor, so here’s another one of even worse quality – sorry, I only paid about £470 for my iPhone so it would be too much to expect it to actually perform as a camera. I mean, it barely works as a phone, so asking it to take a clear picture is tantamount to asking for a miracle.
I’ll tell you though, this dress is going to get a lot of wear – and considering that it was £67, I’m pretty pleased. I love the ‘kimono’ style of it, but it’s so easy to wear – there are no wrap-around bits, no zips or straps, you just pull it on and wear it. Try not to get the back caught in your pants (that’s this week’s top tip) but apart from that, it’s all plain-sailing. Oh – try not to bend over, either – I went to put my shoes on and Mr AMR very nearly choked to death on his cornflakes! On that note, I shall leave you to peruse French Connection, for that is where I bought it!
