Missguided Lace Dress & Some Potter Glasses

After so much uhming and ahhing whether to shell out on the Topshop version of this dress or the Missguided, I finally took another online shopping plunge and went with Missguided.


I have such bad luck ordering clothes online, they usually either don't fit or look anything like the picture (*cough* tesco bikinis) and then you end up getting swizzed as they don't refund the postage - and in my case have the shame of handing over your club card for the points to be brutally taken away by a smug sales assistant.
So to be honest the reason I didn't go skipping off to Topshop was because they only do it in white nowadays and I didn't want to look like a bride. I'm so so happy I didn't though because this version is half the price and identical. Apologies for the crotch area picture but before I got mine I was worried about the length and a few people had said that the Missguided version is a lot longer, sooo here it is in all it's glory. I think I look a bit david Browie aswell today.

In non dress speak here's how I've spent my weekend.


Potter in 3D (amazing) on Saturday and a trip to Asda today. It's an old Netto that's just been changed in my town and people are actually going crazy over it, silly really as theres an asda exactly the same size about a ten minute walk away, I think I counted about 10 screaming children and heaps of 90s perms on my trip there today : /
I've also had a pretty shoddy afternoon, a text came through saying "Please call this number urgently reference the illegal cat residing in your flat. Regards abm property". I freaked as my cat is sort of squatting here as we aren't allowed pets and actually bawled to my mum (more cringe) as I didn't want to get rid of him. So I sat down and wrote out this huge spiel of what to say to them, but when I eventually calmed down and rang the number my sister was pissing herself on the other end of the line. Not happy at all!
Midlands meet next week though, getting a bit nervous and I'm already thinking of potential wears - d'ya reckon this dress is a bit too much for shopping? I kind of want to parade it around Bham but I'll probs give anyone who reads this d

  2. I love this dress especially in the red. How tall are you? I think it might still be too short on me :( I don't think it's too much for shopping, you can easily dres it down!

  15. I really like the dress, its very bright tho! I have been thinking of placing an order with missguided. People are silly aren't they? we had a waitrose open here a few weeks ago and people were queueing outside to get in! I actually LOL'd at your sisters cat prank, mean but funny - poor you! xx

  19. I have this in the cream (topshop one), the first lace one they did. Then i wanted it in the blue but they sold out so quickly! The bright white one is too much though, very bride-like, you're right. The lace on my topshop dress has gone really awful and bobbly, totally not worth the price! I wish i waited, i would've definitely bought the one from missguided instead.

    The blue really suits you, really in to blue clothing right now. The kate middleton effect, i think! xxx

  23. That blue really suits you! It's sometimes a hard look to work with but it definitely works for you :) I love the lace too and the missguided one definitely seems a good choice if it's a little longer - I hate dresses that you just feel like you can't remotely move in ha-ha

    Gorgeous blog babe - following you now :)

  25. SUCH a pretty dress! And definitely a good shout going for the cheaper Missguided version - Topshop has become extortionate! I can't go in there any more, it fills me with rage...

    Can't believe your sister did that - so cruel but kind of hilarious, you must have been fuming!
    I'm so jealous of all you Midlands folk doing the blogger meet - I want to meet some bloggers! xxx
