I know, almost for a fact, that we have all been there! We have all been gifted or acquired a gift card for a shop that we do not usually shop in and then proceeded never to use it. Sure we make a half-hearted effort to stop by when we are passing that establishment – but there is never enough time or a determined will to find something we like. So we continue to carry the gift card around, bemoaning the fact that we never find anything we like, and the cycle continues.
Well, I have done it! I had a River Island gift card that had been knocking around my bag for ages and I finally spent it right before I went on holiday. I walked into the store and it must have been my day because I spotted this dress immediately. I love the combination of the pleats and polka dots in an easy to wear swing cut. It’s an ‘easy to wear’ dress that works great with flats during the day, heels at night and soon tights and boots in the upcoming winter months. It also has full sleeves so it can accommodate many a layer underneath.
Now you may question my rationale for taking a full sleeves dress to Miami in the summer but hey – it was new so it had to be done. For it’s US outing, I had paired it with my trusted pair of low heels (perfect for holidays) and some dangly earrings.
It was a windy (hurricane expected) evening when I took these pictures so they are my first set of night pictures. I hope you like this lookbook and as always, thank you for reading Isha’s Verdict.
