Simply Be recently sent me this pretty Frock'n'Frill blouse to review (along with 2 Rise dresses that I shall show you soon!). I apparently didn't manage to get the greatest pics, but it is winter now, so going without knitwear of some kind would be silly :P I think in this picture though you can kinda see the pretty details that made me fall in love with it though?
Bows & lace, where can you go wrong? I got it in a 28, as I have had past experience with Frock'n'Frill, my bird print topis by them (as seen in the pic on your left), so knew to go a size up. I probably could have got away with a 26, if it wasn't for my hips/belly, it's a little snug there, but as I plan to wear it tucked in it's not a problem! The colour is pretty & it's well made, so I would give it 8.5/10, a point & and a half being knocked off for sizing discrepancy.
Also managed to wear out my tapestry brogues, seriously these things I find so hard to match up & wear with things!! Think they work with this outfit though, my bag helps ties them in. Any suggestions would be great though, I need help! Plus I decided to wear my hair up, for the first time in like ever! I did milkmaid braids, & actually really like them. I normally hate putting my hair up, my hair is usually something that I hide behind (I have enough of it, haha!), so it was good to try something new & be a bit brave. Even if my neck was a bit chilly. Note to self - next time, experiment in the summer!
