Outfit

IMG_2089Finally an outfit picture, it's been way too long. I'm hoping to post more regularly from now on; I'm definitely still busy but the lighter nights help with taking pictures and creating blog material. As I mentioned in my last post, this is the newest dress in my collection. It's the Que Sera Sera collar dress from Kitten D'Amour. I had mixed feelings regarding this collection. The quality wasn't as high as some of the kitten designs. That's not to say there's an issue with the quality because there certainly wasn't. I'm just extremely particular and I like all my dresses to be lined in the skirt part and this wasn't. If they were I may well have purchased two designs from the collection. This particular dress was by far my favourite. The only potential issue is how low cut it is on me. However, I'm fine with it because I'm prepared for my undergarments to show and form part of the outfit; I don't think it looks much different from having a top underneath. The dress also came with a matching belt but on this occasion I liked the red belt. I don't like Kitten D'Amour as much as I used to. There are my pieces in the store which are not my style these days and, although it remains the shop I go to most, I purchase less than I used to. There are other aspects which I find frustrating too. Many of the staff (but certainly not all!) are too pushy and don't even allow privacy when trying on clothes in the change rooms. I don't like the censorship on their Facebook page and discussion group. I've seen comments deleted whenever someone expresses a negative view towards the store. They are implementing petty rules such as not allowing customers to take pictures in the store. I believe customers and supporters of the brand should be allowed to openly and objectively have discussions. I am not a fan of the restrictions and censorship. 

I couldn't be happier the weekend is here. It's beautiful spring weather and I'm enjoying simple aspects of life such as walking in the sunshine, sitting on the balcony and having an afternoon off work. I will also do some training for both swimming and running. I have the Long Distance Championships for swimming on Sunday. I'll be racing the 400m backstroke and 800m freestyle. I can't say I'm looking forward to it because racing makes me nervous (don't know why given I race weekly and started competitive swimming when I was nine years old) but hopefully it'll feel like a achievement once it's over.

I looove your Kitten D'Amour dresses, dear Imogen, and I am glad you managed to have an outfit post now, cause I know you are busy! And wow, 400 m and 800m, you will feel great when you accomplished the race! I also loved the beautiful burgundy belt-ribbon detail, and the flats are so lovely! True, walking in the sunshine, or enjoying it on the balcony, the simple pleasures are always the best! I hope you enjoy a lovely weekend!

Such a pretty floral dress! I really like the purple shoes with it too :)

Shame that you're not enjoying the brand as much as you used to - but it's great you have a current collection of pieces you can still use and enjoy without the hassles of the stores! Hopefully they will hear feedback and change some things.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, good luck with the races! :)

That is a very pretty dress. I love it with the belt you paired it with. That is a shame that this dress didn't come lined in the skirt and even more of a shame that the company censors people's opinion so much! Thank goodness there are blogs like yours which make it possible still to get an honest opinion of the brand!
