This dress is from Joy the Store my favourite store in London (it's even better than Topshop on Oxford Circus!). I bought it in the online sale to celebrate a rather eventful week in the middle of this year. It was on sale. I was hoping the fit and the print was as true as on the website - and when I tried it on, it was fabulous! I love the green floral - I don't look like a traffic light! - and that it goes with pink, blue, purple and black. I also love the swishy pleated skirt and the bust line. I'm also wearing my new sandals by Windsor Smith - another sale item.
I discovered Joy the Store in London when I was holidaying in London in July 2012, I went into a few Joy stores in different areas of London, and fell in love with a gold and navy dress that I kept seeing. It reminded me of a Cue or Review dress. I was being careful with my money, and so I waited until my last day there to buy it. I caught the train from Earls Court to Fullham Broadway with half an hour to spare before I needed to catch a taxi to the airport. I knew what I wanted. Spent my last £40 cash on that perfect dress. Squeezed it into my carry-on. And I wear that dress to VIP events, instead of wearing a suit.
