Style Diary – Red Polka Dot Tea Dress

Hey guys, I hope you’ve all had a productive and fun filled week. I’m never one to wish away a day but I’m still seriously feeling the TGIF vibes today! I don’t know what it is but some weeks are so much more tiring than others regardless of what you’ve actually done. My plans for this weekend include, doing nothing, doing nothing..oh, and doing nothing! Last weekend, I was working and then I had one of those nights with the girls where even before you step foot outside the door, you just know it’s gonna be a “big” one, and indeed it was, so needless to say I didn’t get much R&R!

This weekend though, I’m promising to behave, catch up on some blog stuff and rest up! I’ve written it here now so I can’t go back on it 🙂

Last weekend, in between all the madness, I did manage to run into town to have a quick look around and came home happy with this red polka dot dress in town. It immediately reminded me of all the gorgeous Reformation dresses I pine over on Instagram. Except instead of having to fork out around €200, this beauty only set me back €16! Yes, you heard, €16 people!! Where do you ask? Penny’s of course! I was bloody delighted with myself.

I adore these style dresses, I think they’re just so flattering especially if you’ve got a few curves like myself.

  • V-neck? Check!
  • Sleeve? Check!
  • Shows a bit of leg? Check!
  • Slip underneath so you don’t have to worry about Tiddy & Biddy falling out? Check!

It’s the dress of dreams. And how amazing is the colour? I’ve said it already but red is THE colour this season so I know I’ll be getting plenty of wear out of this little number. Check out this similar version in black.

Before I sign off, I have one more bit of news I want to share with you. On the 6th of October coming, my two best friends and I will be taking part in the Sleep Out For Simon event which takes place here in Galway. We will be swapping the glad rags for sleeping bags and sleeping out on Shop Street to experience what it is like to be homeless for one night. As many know, homelessness is a huge problem here in Galway and it is only getting worse. The money raised on the night will go towards helping those effected by homelessness by providing them with counselling and other things such as dental and doctors appointments. The other aim of the night is to raise awareness on the ever growing problem.

With that said, if you could donate anything that you could, I would be so incredibly grateful. Every single euro makes a difference!

If you like, you can donate here.

Gotta Dash,

Edel x
