Fearne Cotton for Very

How beautiful are these dresses? I love long sleeved mini dresses as I think they look elegant with a little hint of naughtiness. I love the 60's feel that the dresses have and think that Fearne looks stunning.

I always lusted over the Fearne Cotton range whenever a new collection comes. I do think that they are a little overpriced for what they are. I have never been able to afford anything.

But now I can as I have some amazing news. If you follow me on twitter you may have heard. At my internship I have been offered a two month short term contact paid. Yes you heard right I will be getting a wage for being a journalist! You have no idea how much this means to me after slogging away for three years on various publications doing endless weeks of work experience. I was beginning to think that I just was not good enough for a paying job.

I am unbelievably happy, I didn't want to leave and I feel like I have settled in so well. I have really come to terms with the role and would be sad to leave and let someone else take my place. Thankfully they have decided to keep me on until October.

When I get my first wage packet the first spotted dress will be mine. I am slightly worried at spending £65 on a dress when the most expensive thing I have brought all year is £25. But I have worked so hard and deserve a little treat; I might have to have a special night out just to wear it too ;)

Has anyone brought anything from this range before? Any idea on the sizing? I am usually a size 10 but sometimes get a 12 for the length. I am 5ft8 and prefer not to flash my bum in dresses. Just need to know if there is much difference between the 10 and the 12 :) Thanks guys!

    I find VERY a tad too epensive too, but I think they're probably decent quality xx

  7. I like Fearne's collections! That dotty one is lovely x

  8. I love Fearne's collections but I think the shapes wouldn't suit me, I'd be better off with Holly's dresses xxx

  9. i really like the dee vee range at very but it's a little pricey (not that i can afford ANYTHING at the moment) but i am not all that confident in mini style dresses, i'm not v confident about my legs :(

  10. congrats on the internship! I always wait until Very send me an email with money off then I splash out on some nice dresses xx
