Two returns, one success to report back on. The Whistles cashmere jumper from House of Fraser was a little disappointing. I liked the colour initially then it felt a bit 'blah' on. As much as it was probably supposed to be a slouchy fit, it felt large and too non-descript. The quality was ok, not £195's worth (it original price) and due to the other factors, not £60's worth either.
The Whistles dress from Asos also came up large, it was gaping around the arm holes and was slightly too big in the body. It is a nice dress but was more formal/office in the flesh than I expected it to be and as I had it in mind for a wedding, it wouldn't work. Lesson learnt - Whistles seem to come up larger on me (although some of my older Whistles items don't).
These Bobby dazzlers though - well these are keepers and have already been worn twice. I am so pleased with them, they have fitted into my wardrobe perfectly. When a court shoe is too formal (or cold!) and you want a smarter boot (heels play a part here) these work perfectly. I've worn them with jeans and also with tights and a leather skirt so far. I have sprayed them with a protector and removed them when driving!
