Confessions of a style blogger // Then and now

Last week, I posted an outfit post with a dress I hadn’t worn or blogged about for two years. As many of you seemed to enjoy the Then and Now series, I decided to continue.

This weeks segment comes with a confession.

I originally posted this outfit in January 2014. I bought it before I went home for Christmas with the intention of wearing the blue tartan dress at some point over the festive period.

I was excited about the dress, because I had already become slightly obsessed with the red version and saw this one on sale.

I picked out the same size and drove home for Christmas, feeling excited.

Disaster struck when I tried it on. It wouldn’t zip. It got to half way up my back, and ziltch. Nada. NONNONO. I did that thing where you try to breath in as you zip up, or when you try to pull it down and zip it so it’s looser, then I tried to do it really fast so I could foolย this knobhead dressย to zip up before it had known what had hit it.

But alas, it could not be tricked. BUT I LOVED IT.

So I blogged it anyway. It just wasn’t zipped up. Shut up.

I’ve tried it on several times since then and it’s never zipped up. I was actually going to finally let it go to dress heaven (well, or hell, seeing as this dress was an absolute arsehole, in my opinion) and decided to try it on one more time.

It finally zips all the way up!

Hello new dress. You are no longer dead to me.

The end.
