FYI this post contains a story & giveaway about a gifted item {named after ME}.

It’s not often that I receive an email that makes me a grinning blog fool. From brands that is. Readers make me smile all the time. Brands {without sounding like an ungrateful jerk which I guess I am sort of being} fill my inbox with offers and opportunities that are mostly badly matched to my blog and create more emails to reply to. Seriously, if I get offered on more kids lunchbox or water bottle I’ll scream…

But oh yeah, the point Suger!

This one day I got an email asking if I would be okay for the dress you are looking at to be named after me! So I opened the attached images and was like derrr, if it is NOT named after me I’ll be sad. It’s comfy, it’s stripy ANDย it’s casual but could totally be dressed up. Come on. It’s practically me in a dress. No problem I said, count me in. And here we are folks, here we are. And it’s a cracker of a dress. Seriously. I’m not biased at all. {okay a little, but whatevs}.ย

I wore this dress out for a casual family dinner for my brother’s birthday. At first I was worried about being a underdressed for the venue but I added the old favourite ankle straps, some new bling and bag and I was on my way. Light makeup and natural waves completed the look. In the end it was perfect. We were sitting for a while waiting for our dinner so I was super comfortable and it didn’t crumple. Plus Hubby loved it. The material is dreamy to touch and it’s short {on me, hello 5’11 almost people} AND low cut . He thought he was in dress heaven. Haha. Double win.
