Do you guys read The Sweetest Occassion? If you don’t, hop over right now. Cyd’s mix of party tips, style, photography, and fashion hits it out of the park. Everytime she posts one of her What to Wear series, I want every single piece. This one from the summer is my favorite, especially the Green polka dot dress**.
I loved the dress so much and discovered it was from Wallis, a UK based clothier with a great mix of classic and stylish pieces. They were offering free international shipping, so on a whim I ordered the dress and a few other end of summer pieces. At great prices I was a little skeptical, but when they arrived the fit and quality was terrific! So pleased. I even ordered a pair of shoes that was on sale for $14!
I’ve been back to the Wallis site browsing for new pieces as we transition into cooler temps. I’m not a red/orange kind of girl, so instead I thought it would be fun to put together a mix of soft and cozy with a bit of an edge. This dress might even convince me to be brave with peplum, who knows!
What do you think? Have you ever placed an order with a new company and been pleasantly surprised?
** Because it was my first time ordering, I purchased the green dress in 2 sizes. I’m trying to sell the one I didn’t keep domestically before I pay to send it back to the UK. If you think its cute, I have one in a US size 10/12 that I’m selling shipped for $50. E-mail me ravennagirls [at] gmail [dot] com if interested **
