*Mushroom Magic*

Sometimes there comes along a dress that as soon as you see it you just know you have it in your life. While I was working at Cath Kidston the Autumn/Winter Lookbook arrived way, way back in early Summer and they introduced the 'Mushroom' print.  I was simply in love with it as a print from the word go. Now it's not everyone's taste and I will admit that, but if you're like me and love a good quirky print then this print is the epitome of quirky. The colours, the design, even the placement of  the mushrooms it's just rather fantastic. I was simply gutted when work were informed that we weren't receiving it in our fashion section (which was my section of course!). I do in fact remember kicking off a little as I was seriously looking forward to it. Just as I predicted as soon as it hit stores and online the dress sold out almost immediately. Alas the mushroom dress was never to be mine. 
On my last day of working at Cath Kidston my incredible team surprised me with my leaving gift which was- lo and behold- the mushroom dress! And my store manager also got me the matching cup and saucer. I was simply over-the-moon with them. 

What I love about this dress has to be the fabric, I'm not quite sure what its exact components are but it's a heavy cotton with an almost tapestry feel to it. What's great is that the quality is lovely and thick enough that you don't have to wear a slip underneath and the length of it is just perfect.

  12. I'm just now getting to read this post!! The dress is perfect on you! I wanted it so badly, but they sold out of my size on both the UK and US sites (I've had luck before with ordering from the UK one, with the train dress!). But it's simply darling. And I'm obsessed with your hair like this!!! Teach me!!! I do love that I have the same brooch :) I just need to figure out what I want to wear it with! Oh, and I love that you found a spot with little mushrooms growing. Perfect.
