Even though this outfit isn't too exciting I just wanted to share my latest cheap find with you all! I didn't accessorize too much because I wanted the focus to be on my amazing Topshop booties!
I had been admiring this dress in store for a couple of weeks, I even tried it on twice but just couldn't justify buying a dress that I may possibly never wear! Something kept bringing me back to it though. I love the floral lace print and 3/4 length sleeves. Not so great is the incredibly short length and body-con style which really hugs to my whole body and "problem area" more than anywhere.
Then last week while I was browsing through the clearance racks I noticed the dress was there, the last one was in my size and reduced to €3 ($3.80/£2.45) so of course I used this as an excuse to buy it. It was just meant to be, right?!
Dress: Dunnes *** Blazer: Primark *** Booties: Topshop *** Bracelets: ASOS *** Spanx and Faith 21 shorts (not pictured)
I will admit it, I cheated a little. I'm wearing Spanx underneath the dress but not even those babies could hide my belly! They did smooth it out a little more though. Getting into the Spanx was a whole mission in itself! I bought them last year for the ridiculous price of €75 and they are without a doubt the most uncomfortable thing in the world. Every time I sit down or bend over they roll down. I thought maybe I had bought them in the wrong size but I have tried on larger sizes recently and have the same problem so I think Spanx are a waste of money. Yes they smooth out my body a little but they are uncomfortable and make me feel miserable every time I wear them!
I also wore my Faith 21 shorts underneath to cover my Spanx and help me feel more comfortable about wearing such a short dress.
(Thankfully I also remembered to fix the sleeves on my blazer before leaving! Whoops!)
