Outfit of the Day - Wishes Do Come True

It was only on Monday this week that I posted my April Wish List so imagine my surprise when I got home from working away in London on Wednesday to find a parcel waiting for me. When I turned the parcel over to open I saw a little sticker saying Sugarhill Boutique and I was so excited... I am now the proud owner of the Cherry Bomb Shift Dress!

My lovely boyfriend had only heard me talking about how much I liked the dress (think I'd showed him the picture about 3 times!) and for once, he actually agreed with me that it was nice and decided to surprise me with it as a present!

Dress: Sugarhill Boutique
Leggings: Miss Selfridge
Boots: Primark
Necklace: Warehouse
Belt: Dahlia on Carnaby Street

I wore this dress yesterday to go for dinner and to the theatre to see Sister Act which has left the West End to tour the country. I actually saw the show when I was living in London when it guest starred Whoopi Goldberg who wrote the production but despite this being my second time I actually enjoyed it more than the first time - the cast and singing is incredible plus my boyfriend had got us tickets in an upper circle box so we had a great view and the two of us were sat on our own!

I wore the dress with black leggings, a buckle belt to nip in the waist a bit more (it did look fab without the belt too), my suede boots that you'll see in a lot of my outfits and then a cute chain with a solid block pendant detail.

Aside from the gorgeous print and the cute sleeve detail, I love the fabric - it was actually a lot better quality than I was expecting. That's no disrepect to smaller fashion retailers, I just find you never know what you're going to get when you order online - I generally check the material before I buy but sometimes things do seem cheaper when you see them in the flesh.

Overall I'm really pleased with it and the boyfriend has earned major brownie points too! I'm a very lucky girl!

    1. I am very lucky! He's definitely a keeper ;)

      The boots weree a rare good quality Primark find - they were £17 which I suppose is on the pricey side for Primark though ;) x

  3. Ahh what a lovely surprise :) I love the cherry print!
