CHECKERBOARD

What is with the weather in the UK at the minute? I just managed to take these snaps this morning before another rain shower, hence how dark and dingy the garden and the pictures look. I powered through the cold and wet though as I really wanted to get some pictures of this gorgeous Fashion Union dress that I was very kindly sent to review. I was umming and ahhing over this for a while as it looked a really lovely, relaxed shape, but I wasn’t too sure if it would look right on me. I decided to take the plunge and give it a go though, and I’m really pleased I did. It has a very retro feel to it, with the pink and black checker print and the long sleeve/a line skirt combo. Very mod indeed! I also love the fabric. It’s a stretchy jersey with a soft, almost velvet finish to it which is really unusual, but makes it really cosy and that little bit different. I’m wearing it today with black opaques and heels for a simple look. but I can’t wait to wear this out with a splash of fake tan and some chunky black heeled sandals in the summer.

Dress – Fashion Union*
Hat – H&M
Tights – Primark
Boots – Boohoo

I also received a really pretty blouse with some gorgeous embroidered floral detail that I’ve already worn a couple of times for work. You’ll no doubt be seeing this in an outfit post very soon! It has a western cowgirl feel to it and looks great with slouchy boyfriend jeans and pointy heels.

Have you shopped with Fashion Union? What do you think of this dress?

    Oh this dress is too cute! Looks like you've been inspired by The Specials, my fave ska band! xx
