Very Excellent Habits

The Best Dress I’ve Bought In Ages

It was a Friday afternoon a few weeks ago when I got a notification that my mate Kate from Secret Blogger’s Business had tagged me in a post on Facebook.

A blogger friend of ours Vanessa from Style & Shenanigans had featured a dress in her fashion roundup that week and it was just about the Smaggliest dress Kate had ever seen. She was dead right. I frantically clicked the link, hoping it would tick all my boxes.

It did.

I carefully measured an existing dress I had and compared it the measurements on the website. I could have gone for a size 14 but they firmly suggested sizing up so I did and got a 16 and it’s just perfect. There’s no stretch at all in the dress, so you need a bit of extra room. I couldn’t believe it when I tried it on how perfect how was. That almost never happens when I buy things online.

This dress has been in my life for about ten days and I’ve worn it for maybe five of those days. I had a woman stop me in the street and tell me how gorgeous she thought it was. I normally do fashion tips on a Friday at Smaggle but today, I’m just showcasing a damn good purchase.

This outfit was worn for a day of client work, a jaunt into the city to buy some yarn for a new Crochet Coach pattern I’m working on (it’s a boxy little kimono jacket and I’m super excited about it!). This weekend we’re off to spend some time at Mr Smaggle’s family farm on the NSW coast and a few days in Sydney for some client meetings. We’ve got a big drive tomorrow but we’ve got snacks, downloaded podcasts and I’ll make a Thermos of coffee before set off. I bloody love a good road trip.

What are you up to this weekend?
