Photo 1: The sales ladies at Selfridges, working the Beth Ditto collection
And here are the lovely staff at Evans Marble Arch. I posted this one as it shows how versatile the collection is. It can be worn in so many ways, as demonstrated perfectly by the lady on the far right. I love how she has pulled the maxi dress right up to a shorter length!
After seeing the collection on line, (I got up early on the Friday morning to look!) I decided I had to go to Marble Arch and try the collection on and take some photos for you all. I apologise now for the quality. I am far from a photographer, and I was on my own, hence why they are not fabulous!
Here is the collared polka dot dress. I went for a size 20, as there was no 22 on the rails. It does fit, but was slightly too tight around my boobs, but then this was expected as I normally take a 22/24. I REALLY like this dress. The only complaint I had was that it was lined. I know it's an Autumn/winter collection, but it was slightly too warm for me. However, this is just a personal thing, and, again, may be due to the fact I tried on a size smaller than my usual.
This is in my normal size (22) I think I would down size at least one size in this. I just didn't like it on me... It was a bit shapeless and just kind of sat there. Although I'm sure it will look really nice on other people, it maybe nicer on pear shaped ladies. (I am very top heavy, the opposite to pear shaped unfortunately!) The one thing I did like however, was that the length can be adjusted by the drawstring at the bottom.Last, but not least, is the velvet dress. I LOVE this dress, I can't find a thing wrong with it! I love the fact it has pockets too! It's also the perfect length too. The material is lovely on this, I love the feel of velvet (in a non pervert way, of course) The colour is lovely too, navy is very in this season and I think it makes a change from plain black.
I do have a few other pictures of other items I tried on, but they are a bit blurry. If you wanted to see other photos of how the other items look and don't mind blurry photos, just email me and I will send them on.
I didn't buy anything from the collection. This wasn't that I didn't like anything, because I did, but I was being practical (for once) and bought myself a winter coat I really needed, which will be my next blog post.
I hope you all haven't found this too boring!
