Dahlia, dahlia...

So just before Christmas the lovely Olivia and I got talking on twitter about doing a dress swap for our blogs... the girl has a seriously covet-able wardrobe and each one of her posts has me wishing I could steal the clothes off her back! We were both lucky enough to both be gifted with dresses from Dahlia so we decided why not swap them, photograph them and blog about them on the same day!

Olivia's Dress...

The lovely lady herself...


I love that my little pixie is doing the same pose in this photo as me, Ive got her well trained!



Dress: Dahlia, Snood: H&M, Tights: Asos, Cardigan: Oasis, Ankle Boots: Asos, Necklcae: gift

My dress...
I styled my dress up back in October which you can see in full here.
I love how Olivia teamed my dress with her cat shoes! Be sure to stop by her blog and see her post on our dress swap. :)
I just wanna say, I love how many lovely people and now good friends Ive made through blogging, it makes me so happy! xx

I love both dresses, i bought the blue one before Christmas but i felt like a nurse in it, I'm definitely way too short to pull it off as it was knee length on me! You both look very lovely in it, though! The red bow belt is cute! x

I often read, but don't comment, so my NY resolution is to comment more on the blogs I enjoy, so hi there!
Love how you both styled these dresses so differently - and both look great. I would quite happily swap outfits with most of the bloggers I follow, you guys all have such great wardrobes! x

Megan Jane said...

Love the colour of your tights and how it harmonises with your glasses! Your shoes look really comfy, and they look good too!

Really liked this project, great to get to know another blog! :)

Alexandra said...

both of your dresses are absolutely gorgeous!
the funny thing is, i was VERY close to buying the first dress. but then i realized, when am i ever going to wear a dress in north dakota in the first place? it's too damn cold here -- even if i wore tights or leggings underneath.
le sigh. i suppose i'll just be left to envy.

The rust coloured dress is gorgeous - I have one almost identical from AX Paris, but it is sleeveless - I love the colour and pattern.
I love both yours and Olivia's blogs - such a good idea to switch!
