I think I had this dress when I was a toddler...

Now I know there's a super-cool girl somewhere in the UK who'll buy this £30 dress, team it with House of Holland for Pretty Polly tights,brogues, chunky jewellery and some kind of vintage fur and make it look amazing. To be honest, she probably works in my office.

But for me, it's just a bit too late 80s DIY. It's the kind of thing that featured heavily in the sewing / craft books on my mother's shelves, and thus ended up being worn by me a lot. I can't imagine, as a grown up, wearing something so reminiscent of The Raggy Dolls.

Nice try though, River Island....
