Fave Friday

I got this dress while I was on holiday. It is from the Issa collection for Banana Republic, and after googling for a picture I found out it is modelled on the dress that Kate Middleton wore for announcing her engagement.

I went into Banana Republic to have a look at it and decided it would look like a sack on me, but then I was trying on some tops in the sale and the SA was collecting what I was picking up and putting it in the changing room, so I had my hands free and thought I might as well try it. Glad I did, because it is ultra-flattering. The blue is darker than it appears here and it has a really nice drape. I wore it for the first time today, with my new spotty trench coat, and lamented again that I did not also buy it in the purple. I told the SA I would be sorry, but it was 42 degrees outside and I could not envisage needing two autumnal dresses at that point in time.

One bad thing: for some reason it has a concealed zip under the arm which is a little irritating. Why anyone would put a zip in a stretchy jersey dress is beyond me. I don't need to undo it to put it on or take it off.
