Sammy dress


Hello darlings!

It’s been a good few weeks since I’ve wrote a post on my blog; I’ve been super duper busy and not feeling 100%. Not to worry though – I’m back now.

You may or may not have noticed that I am no longer on ‘Blogger’: I am now on WordPress. This is my first ever time writing a post on WordPress so please be mindful that it feels like I’m a ‘beginner’ all over again. It’s still me though lovelies. Just bare with me over the next month or so until I get back in to the swing of things. (I will do a separate post, most likely, letting you all know about the move from Blogger > WordPress).

I’m kicking things off today with a fashion post featuring the fabulous Sammy Dress. They contacted me several weeks ago and asked me if I wanted to receive some lovely pieces from their site: After having a browse through their online store I happily accepted their kind offer.

I’d like to start with this criss-cross blue velveteen dress (as it’s my favourite item from the bunch). It retails for $9.96 at the moment and is on the sale – so if you like it you better snap it up quick! It’s extremely comfortable, bold and very figure-hugging. Definitely a beautiful evening dress! This is actually my favourite colour so I’m over the moon with this little number!

These mesh yoga/fitness leggings sell for $9.69. I’ve not had the chance to wear these out and about yet but they seem like great quality and are very comfortable. I’m always on the look out for quirky and stylish gym leggings so these are right up my street. (However, I need to get my ass back to the gym to make these look a bit better on me – watch this space).


This elegant crochet black blouse isn’t something I’d normally go for, I’ve went a wee bit out of my comfort zone with this one, it is really pretty and sophisticated looking. It retails for $14.15. The only downside I have about it is that it didn’t fit 100% and the straps kept falling down so I think if I wore this out and about it would probably annoy me! But it looks great in the photos, right?

These black block heeled sandals will definitely be getting worn on plenty of occasions; the majority of my nights out result in me wearing a pair of black heels. I really like these ones because they’re not too high and not too little – just right. These babies cost $16.16. I have worn them up and down the house and they seem pretty comfortable to me (the only reason you guys didn’t get a picture with my feet in them is because my toenails are currently needing painted…yep!)


This stunning heart shaped choker retails for $2.36. I would definitely pay more for this little fashion statement because it’s brilliant quality. I’ve worn this out on so many occasions since I got it and I’ve received lots of compliments and people have been asking me where it’s from: Here you go guys, knock yourselves out!

I was also sent out a pair of black leggings with rips down the front which I was really looking forward to however they were not true to size at all (I couldn’t get my ass in them  – maybe I just have a big ass – who knows! Ha ha!)

So that’s a wrap, that’s all the goodies I’ve been keeping from you all for weeks now, I hope you found something that floats your boat! If you want to check out Sammy Dress then click HERE to have a browse on their site.

Until next time

    I am trying so hard to honour my No Buy properly but then I see posts like these and I’m so tempted. (╥_╥)

    That choker is so cute on you and I’ve been eyeing it for a while. And those shoes! I’m going to go broke if I start shopping from Sammy Dress.

    Lovely post, all jokes aside, the clothes look so good on you. And you look bomb in those leggings. I, obviously, need to try and catch up to you.
