* A Pleasant Surprise *







(Paisley Print Dress - Glamorous / Black Boots - Office / Belt & Necklace - Vintage)


Hello lovelies!

Well, this was a surprise! The wonderful people over at Glamorous HQ ever so kindly gave me some spending money - eeek! I have been a fan of Glamorous clothing for a very long time now, and was super excited to browse their new A/W collection. I ordered a couple of things, and to my absolute surprise, one item that I had ordered was not included, with instead this blue paisley creation in it's place. Initially, I was confused and a little sceptical, considering I'd ordered something cream originally. However, to my wonderful surprise, it was gorgeous and I'm so glad the warehouse staff messed up. It was such a pleasant surprise and on reflection, I like this dress more than I think I would my original item. So thank you Glamorous, for the generous vouchers and for the very, very pleasant surprise!

More soon, 

Helen

  72. My first thought was that this dress is gorgeous. I didn't expect it to be a 'mess-up', it totally looks like something you would have chosen your self :) Paisley is my favorite pattern at the moment.
