Blue and coral



Before christmas one of my favourite stores Review held a competition called the '12 days of review' with one dress given away every day for 12 days. I was lucky enough to win one and I thought I would share the one I had chosen. 

Review has always been one of my favourites and my wardrobe is filled with old review from when I was working. Oh the days of having disposable income! Being a student has its downfalls after all. They have very 1950s 'inspired' clothes with a modern twist and do lovely going-out dresses. I am so happy to have won and have worn this dress loads. It's not quite stretchy but has some give, plus I think the colours are so fun! I suggest that you check them out at Myer or their concrete stores as they often have sales making them more affordable. If you are close to a discount outlet it is always worth a look! 

Dress and belt: Review found here
Bag: Vintage 

I hope you're all keeping cool in this ghastly heat!

  5. I'm finding blue is one of my favourite colours to pair with just about anything, after years of not wearing it - and I love it with coral here! The dress is super cute and I tip my hat to you over that adorable bag. I have intense bag envy!! I'm definitely after something just like this for the summer... assuming we get summer as at the moment I feel like I'll never be warm again in the UK! CC x

    1. I've love blue, I have so many blue clothes of all shades! I' m trying to step out of my usual blue/red pairings though :P So blue and coral is a huge change for me. Thank you! I got it at a vintage store but I'm sure you will find one on etsy or ebay quite easily :) I feel you! although in the opposite way, I feel as if I will never not be hot ever again!

  6. Wow, you lucky girl! Your dress is gorgeous. I love window shopping at Review. I can't quite bring myself to buy any of their dresses...too pricey! But I do have two cardigans and a little top from there.

    1. Yeah, I do have trouble buying at full price, I usually wait until they are quite discounted. I once got a green lace dress that was almost $300 for $75, so you can get them much cheaper if you keep looking and wait for them to go on sale. :) I love their cardigans, they're so pretty!
