A Dress Named After Me...

It ranks amongst the highlights of this blog - the day a dress was named after me! Ruth, the owner over at Room 31 told me the exciting news a few weeks ago but I delayed ordering my one...thinking it would never sell out...but it did! Thankfully, Ruth was able to get some more in stock and I ordered up my size 12. 
Yes, the Midi Dress bug has well and truly bitten me. It's fabulous being dressed in one step, without the need for a massive tanning session. Add flat pumps, denim jacket and a contrast scarf and I was good to go on the school run. 
Midi Dress - Room 31
Denim Jacket - M&S (similar)
Scarf - eBay (similar)
Pumps - Clarks
Oh and Amber over at Twentymumthing ordered one too - doesn't she look great in hers also. I hadn't thought of wearing tights with mine but it works great as well - so this dress will take us into Autumn/Winter too.
Super comfy and do you know what both myself and Fiona at Avenue 57 discovered about these midi dresses....men LOVE them! What a nice way to start the day :)
Not many sizes left - you can order yours via this link and remember to use SGS25 at the till for 25% off!

    1. Yes, I'm a total convert - thought they were just for 20-somethings but it appears not...or if they are, I don't care! x

  4. Omg Avril that is so cool! (I'm aware I sound like a 14yo with that last sentence) I have a few midi skirts but no dresses so I may just have to order one to see what all the fuss is about. Both you and Fiona look great in yours!

  5. What a great honour to have a dress named after you Avril - you do look fabulous in it too. I must admit to being tempted to trying the midi trend this year. I felt it hadn't suited me, but I may now give it another go! XXX
