The title of this post could be totally self deprecating and all, “Surprise! Selise actually put up a new post!” But it’s not. And for shame those of you who thought it. Because, look, best laid plans, and, life is what happens when you… and other such well known sayings that are well known BECAUSE THEY OCCUR FREQUENTLY.



Anyway, the surprise here is not me being (obviously) touchy about my intermittent posting. No. It’s about this dress.



You see, ModCloth did a whole “Stylish Surprise” thing where they said, “Send us 15 bucks and we’ll send you a surprise!” I love that kind of thing so I parted with my deniros and waited (somewhat) patiently for my surprise to arrive.



And here it is! This dress! Which I would not have chosen for myself but I like the fuchsia strip along the bottom.



I’m not sure if I’ll keep it but I definitely think it was worth the suspense.

Head Scarf: Thrifted
Sunglasses: David Jones
Dress: ModCloth
Shoes: City Beach

    Oh I LOVE this whole idea.

    Sending some good hard cash for a surprise and receiving something you would never have considered personally when shopping.

    You’re right about liking the fuchsia strip too, it really takes the dress to a whole different place and I really love it with the green!

    You’re looking amazing as always, fresh, vivid, stylish! Love the bandana, the colours of it as well AND the shoes shimmy up perfectly to the whole ensemble!

    Plus the shades….well you just rock those babies!

    So great to see a new post from you, when a blog is as interesting, fun, hip, random, stylish, smart, colourful and inspiring as yours, well it’s not about how long we readers have to wait for a post, it’s about how WORTH it, it is when we receive one!

    Thanks Lovers Saints & Sailors!

    Love your style! <3 xxxx

      Thanks Lynika!

      I’d love to post more often but it’s good to know I’m not losing you guys when there’s a bit of a break between blogs.

    Gasp. NO. Did they really? How did I miss that?!

    The bangin’ headscarf is more my style but you wear the dress beautifully πŸ™‚

    What a cool idea! Bummer that I missed that. I totally would have parted with $15 for a surprise piece of clothing. It looks great on you by the way!

  4. I didn’t know they did such a thing. I’m quite intrigued now. I agree the pink strip makes it. And the bandana! πŸ˜‰
