£2 H&M top, lovely French Connection dress and some stuff I sent straight back...

I'm still in a bit of a quandary about what I'm supposed to wear at the ripe old age of 34. I keep edging towards new shops and then getting blasted back because something about them annoys me. I saw this Hobbs top in a Sunday paper last week and immediately thought about getting it. I realised that if I ordered it from ASOS rather than Hobbs then I wouldn't have to pay delivery, seems like a bit of an oversight from the point of view of Hobbs but there you go.

Anyway, when it came it was nothing like the picture promised - in fact it was pretty shapeless and the peplum part of the top sat far too high on the waist, back it went (god bless the easy returns policy of ASOS).

I went to a party last week and was determined to find a pretty party dress, however after ordering this dress from Oasis, I was AGAIN disappointed. The straps were far too big and it was also scarily static, which isn't usually a quality I look for in a dress, do you? ;)
Lovely Oasis dress, shame about the static.

In better news, I'm pretty happy with my £2 H&M top, at that price who wouldn't be? It's a little flappy if not tucked in, but that's ok, I just tuck it in. It's great with a pencil or fifties skirt as long as you have neutral shoes.

Bargain £2 H&M top!
My other fab buy this week has been this lovely LOVELY stripe dress from French Connection. Me and two other women were practically running to get the last size on the rail and luckily I was the only one who could squeeze into a size 8 (ha!) so it's all mine! At £62 it's pretty pricey, especially considering only the day before I bought it there was 20% off, but I,loved it so much I didn't care. What do you think? I've also worn it with the zip at the front for a completely different look.

From the back, can be worn  both ways as proven by moi!

All we need now is for the weather to warm up, slightly!
