Being very house proud, my mum always shops at Laura Ashley for her duvets, pillows and towels. I was browsing through the website looking for a birthday present for my mum I came across this lovely 1950s-style orange dress.
I’ve never bought clothing from Laura Ashley in my life…it’s typically just not my style, but my mum owns a closet full of Laura Ashleys and loves to show them off. This particular dress has a great vintage vibe that really suits me. I’d been looking for a new dress to wear to my engagement party next month, so I decided to give the dress a try and if it was awful, I could always return it since I noticed they offered free returns. Plus it was half off, and Laura Ashley isn’t known for low prices. I went ahead and placed an order for the dress along with some new accent pillows for my mum’s gift.
The only annoying part about the process was that it makes you register with the website to place an order. It would be nice to have the option to check out as a guest. The dress turned up on my doorstep about five days later and it’s very flattering…pleasant surprise!
