The Swing Dress Finally In Action

I have had this dress hanging in my wardrobe for a while, I just couldn't find the occasion to the wear it  but at £15 I loved it and went against my rules of 'if it hasn't been worn within a month, back it goes', I also needed some heat to get my legs out!  Finally back in June I broke it in with my faithful Topshop boots for a day of work in London town.  It didn't disappoint, it was so comfortable and easy to wear.   However I'll show you some shots before I break the bad news.......




I went to wear it again this week-end and guess what - it's shrunk!  I am absolutely gutted.  It's too tight around the arms and way to short - borderline inappropriate.  It's viscose and has been washed according to the label so I am not a happy bunny at all.  £15 or not, regardless of the price I think I will be paying my local H&M a visit.  It's obviously not my week-end for it as a designer t-shirt I recently bought from a sample sale has a hole in it!  That coupled with my Zara denim dress from my last post makes it 3 items so I'm hoping the luck changes after I've had my bad 3!

If anyone else has this dress - has this happened to yours?
