Outfit Post: Dee-V-ate



**OUTFIT POST KLAXON**

Yes, yes, I'm back. Legs out and everything. I was contacted by those lovely folks over at Very and asked if I'd like to review a piece from the new Dee-V by Diana Vickers collection. Now, if you know me, you'll know I was never a massive fan of the frog-throated warbler. Just WEAR SHOES, god dammit. However, when I looked at the collection, I have to admit I may have done a little squeal. Sequins, nice prints and prom dresses. It was hard to choose but in the end I plumped for the contrast collar dress.

It's basically AMAZING. It fits really nicely and, although £49 is fairly steep, I do actually think it's worth it as the material is lovely and it goes with everything. I've worn it with heels for work, with flats for a night out and now with leopard print converse and sparkly legwarmers. Versatility maximus.


It wouldn't be an outfit post without me making some sort of ridiculous face, would it? I'd hate to let you down so here's one of me making an expression that was suppposed to represent my necklace. Except I just look like I've swallowed a fly. Oh, and ignore the hair in that last photograph. I may have had a foot cut off it but it still gets EVERYWHERE. To be honest, I'm continually surprised that I'm not bald, with the amount of hair that I seem to lose every day.

Ooh, one last thing! I've been featured over on StyleClone. Be sure to check it out! Should you want to steal my dubious "style", which I'm sure you don't.


Dress - Dee-V c/o Very
Cardigan - H&M
Necklace - Swank
Legwarmers - c/o Tabio
Shoes - Converse
Face - A hellish week at work, thus far


PS: Soz about the post title. Basically hate myself for it.

I am very jealous you have that dress, some magazine did an interview/promo with DV and that was one of the dresses they featured and I coveted it. a lot.

Alice said...

I love that dress! It's making me feel a bit dirty to say it :/

Susie Q said...

Wow. I think I might even check out the DV line (that sounds incredibly dirty...)! I'm not normally a fan of Very, but that's looking fairly nice!

(I do LOVE the necklace! *musthaveit*)
