let's run away, and don't ever look back.


Dahlia leopard print dress with tulle hem | River Island cross body buckle satchel | Zara peeptoe wedges

So here's the tale behind this dress. I've purchased several Dahlia dresses in the past, but they all appeared ill-fitting despite how adorable they all looked. Finally after a few returns, my eyes landed upon this dress. I really love anything with leopard print, but the coral hued tulle detail underneath is what made me squeal. So I purchased it. But then...the package got lost in the mail! For almost three weeks! I was so disheartened and thought, I'm not supposed to buy any Dahlia dresses, it's jut not meant to be. But after lots of cajoling and having the help of Asos' excellent customer service, they were able to track down my package and re-route it to me. And the dress is perfect...I'm in total love! It makes me forget about the past dresses and want to elope in this one.

Have a lovely week, y'all!

I'm glad the dress made it to you because it's fantastic and seems to fit you well. The tulle at the bottom is just the finishing touch to a great look. I'd be so upset if a package of mine got lost in the mail that long. I'm glad it made it to you. (:

The dress is so pretty. I love the tulle peeking out and the shade of pink instead of the typical cream. It fits like it was made for you, sounds like it was worth all the previous let downs.
