Materni-tea-dress

I can never decide if I like this dress



I like the pattern but the shape isn't too flattering which is odd as I own exactly the same dress in polka dot which seems to fit fine, I just think it looks a little maternity wear. Maybs it's a psychological thing, or maybe it does just look crap and I've been kidding myself all these months!
I've felt a bit bleurgh today, how come whenever you feel a bit rough it always shows in your makeup? If I have a cold or I'm hungover my makeup seems to be on a little mission to let everyone know..."Hello bags I'm eyeliner, lets work together to make Eloise look like a 2 patched pirate" - Ugh.

Oh remember I mentioned Randal the Peter Pettigrew of the workplace? Well she came out with such a corker yesterday as an excuse not to make anyone a drink, she actually said she couldn't walk down the stairs because she's five months pregnant?! Que? I cannot wait for her to spawn her offspring so she can go away. Buuuut to make up for a shoddy and uneventful start to the week at work my 200 word ramble on The Apprentice is now on More Magazine's website, have a cheeky read here.

Anyone else suffering from a little midweek blues?

  1. i know what you mean, whenever i'm in a bad mood, my makeup just ends up a total tragedy. So I will only ever post LOTD and stuff when i'm in a super good mood!

  3. I really love the patten of this :)
    btw this is really random but I saw you commented on someone's blog about trying bluffdust from benefit and depending on how bad the pigmentation is it's unlikely to do that much I also found it oxedised quite heavily within two hours so I stay well clear as on my pale skin it was a bit of a nightmare xx

  10. If you break it up with a belt and/or cardi then I think it might behave more the way you want it? I like the pattern and the sleeves!

  14. I love your writing style - the bit about the pirate made me laugh! I for one like the dress but sometimes clothes just don't *feel* right, so I get what you mean.

  18. Aww, I don't think the dress looks too bad! It cinches in nicely at the waist and that pattern is definitely versatile.
    It was so great to meet you today!

  19. I happen to like the dress! I know what you mean though, I've had a similar experience with two dresses of the same cut but different print.

    Hope you're having a great weekend! :)
