california sunrise






dress: choies*
boots: doc martin
lipstick: vivo 'pucker red'*
necklace: eBay (18" length)

okay so something a bit different for this post... basically when Choies contacted me to ask if I wanted to review something from their website I picked out this cute little daisy dress as it was just what I had been looking for in the highstreet shops but was yet to find. I decided to go for a size L as it had the measurements for the dress on the website and I was going by them. It arrived and it's literally a size 6 at the biggest- my little sister is a size 4-6 and it was really tight on her (it got to the point where I actually had to make a slit in the sleeve so she could get her arm in it...) so I hope you don't mind but she's modeling it instead for me! I pretty much dressed her up as me anyway with the bright red lipstick and my 'chav necklace' as she likes to call it. She's wearing her favourite red patent docs which she pretty much lives in.
Overall I really like the design of the dress but the quality of it is quite poor and the sizing comes up TINY (who knows what a size small would be like?!)
I've been wearing this Vivo 'pucker red' lots recently (it retails for £1.99, helloooo bargain!) and the colour lasts really well so I decided to make my sister wear it! It's the perfect shade for Autumn/Winter and you can't really go wrong with a red lip!



although the choies dress and vivo lipstick were sent to me for review purposes this does not influence my opinion of them and is 100% honest as always

  5. It has such a lovely print, so sad it didn't fit you but if it did you' look amazing in it and it seems like a perfect style for you.

  11. HELLO FREYA!!!!!!!! She's adorable Islay! Choies clothes basically are made for tiny tiny Asian people! I honestly can't wear anything from them which isn't a L because of the boob area! *cries* Freya looks lovely though! :) x Laura

  14. Aww bless your little sister dressing up as you haha! How annoying about the sizing though. I bought a dress from there once but it fit fine (although it was a teensy bit too short haha)
