If you go down in the woods today...you'll find the Midnight Tree Dress
I thought I'd have a bit of fun with this new AW14 Midnight Tree Dress by Sugarhill Boutique. They have broken away from their traditional quirky/cutesy style in favour of a striking shift dress with a bold image of a wood on the front.
For me, it's a Marmite dress. You either love it or you hate it.
I like the fact that it is so simple. The cut of the dress, the colours and the photo are all kept very simplistic without spoiling it with any quirky cut outs or prints. The style is flattering, but quite clingy. I would certainly recommend opting for a larger size as not only is it quite snug, it is also rather short, as many of the Sugarhill dresses are. I think it goes great with thick black tights and chunky black boots.
It felt only fitting to show this off in a "wood" which is actually the bottom of my garden (sorry if I've spoilt any illusions!) It was actually a little bit of a stressful photo session as the sun was starting to set after a sunny day, which meant that it was approaching Scarlett's bedtime and she wanted to sit and watch Pepper Pig, but being the kind of child who simply cannot bear to miss ANYTHING she had had to join us outside, much to her dislike. She whined and moaned throughout. We tried to bribe with Kinder Eggs, but she was not a happy bunny. So although the photos are not meant to be chirpy, and instead slightly more dark, the stressed look on my face is probably caused by the crying in the back ground and the pulling on my leg!
What do you think of the dress? Is it a yay or a nay???
