Yes yes, I know I'm behind the times, but I still wanted to add my thoughts on the Beth Ditto collection at Evans. I always seem to be on holiday when Evans bring out their limited ranges (I missed the launch of Ruby Belle as well! *sad face*).

Beth Ditto @ Evans
I haven't actually bought anything from the collection, so I have no photos to show you of anything on. Lauren & Em both have some great dressing room pics, so you can see the fit on a real body, not just a mannequin.
Personally, I am not overly in love with the collection, it seems to be a bit lacking in colour & the designs aren't as "out there" as the previous collection. This is bearing in mind I wasn't entirely keen on the previous collection either, hehe. I did buy the stain glass dress last time, but only after it went on sale. I think with this collection too, that if some of the pieces I like go on sale, I probably will buy them, but I don't love anything enough to pay the slightly inflated prices.
Pieces I do like are the polka dot dress, although I wish it had shorter & puffier sleeves. I also wish it had a solid collar like the one Beth Ditto is wearing in the promo pics, I'm not sure why Evans made it spotty for final production- you can't see the peter pan collar as easily that way. I also like the heart cropped cardigan, and the cameo belt. I also think the cape is cute, having seen it on Lauren. I wouldn't have noticed it otherwise.Style 369, will produce some good offerings. Things look a bit boring atm, but it seems it might be a little like ASOS Curve- disappointing launch, but (hopefully) dramatically improving. I read somewhere that it was supposed to be the fat girls Topshop, & I do so hope that will be true! After all, Arcadia does own Topshop too, so there is no reason why it couldn't.
