Marks & Spencer Valentines Challenge

A couple of days ago, I blogged about choosing a dress for another blogger’s Valentine’s Day. I had Sabrina from A Little Obsessed as my blogging buddy and chose her a lovely pink dress. Yesterday, I wore my lovely Valentine’s dress, chosen for me by a mystery blogger (with amazing taste). I described my style as minimal, feminine and often a little vintage and this is the dress I was given

I was sent the Slash Neck Sleeveless Drop Hem Dress which is £39.50 and very beautiful - floaty and romantic -  perfect for my Valentine’s Day where I went from a day of meetings and supervisions at work, to dinner at Jamie’s Italian in Portsmouth. It’s made from 2 layers of sheer material with a gathered waist and a small pocket on the chest.

I styled it with a gold belt from Accessorize and a leopard print cardigan from Warehouse and loafers from TReds.

The meal was lovely - I had honeycomb canneloni and a chocolate brownie, although I obviously made my boyfriend swap meals halfway through so I could eat some of his wild rabbit pasta and lemon meringue pie! I also indulged in a bellini and cocktail and was spoilt with a huge bunch of flowers!

Thank you to the mystery blogger who chose my dress - you made my night!



  1. What a great idea for a challenge this was - kinda like Secret Santa!
    Looking forward to seeing your choice over at A Little Obsessed and I agree - whoever picked this dress has great taste!

  2. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. I have two very sensory memories of Valentine's Days - from all the way back to childhood. The sweet and chalky taste of conversation hearts always comes to mind when I think of Valentine's Day.
