Being a blogger really sucks sometimes.
Like when an email arrived in my inbox the other day from Westfield, asking if they could please buy me a new dress so I could blog about their online service.
I said no, I don't need any new clothes, and please stop bothering me with such things.
Of course I said yes!
We all know I struggle with shopping at times, but I'm generally pretty good at shopping online. In the comfort of my lounge room, with plenty of time to browse, I can see what will suit me, shop around for different looks and price comparisons, find accessories to match and generally enjoy the experience.
I find that, if I know the brand and the online store, I can shop online really well size-wise, too. (But it's always worth measuring yourself to check against the size charts, just to be sure.)
But when it came to choosing a dress from Westfield online, I decided to go for something different. A different brand – a designer label, on sale! – and a different style. I’ve always wanted a shirt-style dress, but they usually come in heavy materials that make me look like the side of a house. This one, however, is in a jersey material, so it’s lighter, more fitted and doesn’t need ironing (lucky, considering I never, ever, ever iron).
(Disclosure: I kind of cheated here. I’d seen that Nikki from Styling You had bought this dress and I liked the style – but knew the olive green colour would look bad on me. When I looked it up online after receiving this email, I saw it came in red, too. LOVE.)
Anyway, here’s the dress and the different ways I’ll be wearing it:
Head to Westfield online to find heaps of good brands, and shop from the comfort of your lounge room. I found their service to be great and delivery fast. Enjoy!
