Wrap-Over Tulip Dress

Dress inlovewithfashion / Necklace Jon Richards / Ring T:S / Nails: Rimmel

It is almost the end of my annual leave, two weeks holiday passes by so quickly, doesn't it! All I've done this week is pig out on junk food! Really haven't wanted to do anything - so good! Maybe next time I will treat myself to a proper holiday, go somewhere abroad.

I wore this outfit (pictured above) when we went out last weekend. The dress is from inlovewithfashion.com, the hem is interesting, it's tulip shaped! The lovely black and gold crystal necklace which was a gift from the lovely team at Jon Richard Jewellery. I don't have anything like this in my jewellery box so this was a good choice, I really like it! To see the rest of Jon Richard range, their website is http://www.jonrichard.com/. Their designs are also stocked in Debenhams. I've layered it up with another necklace that I bought from a small shop in Portugal.

Last weekend, we headed the bar and ordered cocktails; mine was a frozen margarita. I took a few sips and I bit in to something that was really crunchy. The cocktail was blended with lots of chipped ice with sugar around the glass so I thought it might either be ice, sugar or even rock salt! I thought I was being super paranoid, but then I had another sip and got a mouthful of tiny pieces of glass!!!! I spat out about 5 pieces and it made me feel really funny for the rest of the night. I won't mention the restaurant we went to as they obviously didn't mean to feed me ice! And I did get about £10 off the bill. Looking back, though, now that I've had time to think about it, it could've been worse and £10 off wouldn't have been enough! We should have gone somewhere else after that, but we didn't make a fuss about it. I don't like being an awkward customer (although I had every right to kick off....I just stayed quiet and let my sister sort it out for me! I'm useless!) Luckily, I didn't swallow any glass, I just crunched it with my teeth and some got stuck in my gums :( But it could've been much worse, at least it wasn't sharp or cut my mouth! Always looking on the bright side....!

  7. Glass in your drink? :-O that sounds horrendous! I'm terrible... I complain at everything, even when my McDonalds fries aren't filled to the top, lol! It's only because I spent my student years as a waitress and got so much stick that I think it's my turn to give it back :-p lol

    Lovely dress, though I'm wondering how you managed to get these pictures looking so lovely when it's just so grim outside in the afternoons :-(

    Pretty pretty

  14. I'm also one of those people that just won't complain in restaurants - I'm good at complaining through the screen but not in person!

    The dress looks gorgeous, I'm waiting on a dress from in love with fashion and I hope it looks as nice as yours!

  15. Glad you're ok! I think you're right, they should've given you more than £10 off the bill, but I'm the same as you and don't like making a fuss! Which Rimmel polish is this? Looks lovely on you xxx

  20. Absolutely love the hem on this dress, just that touch of something a little bit, can really make a dress stand out! And what a terrible experience at the restaurant, how awful! I'd of wanted far more than £10 off!!

  30. Yikes!!! What a horrible story!!! You're really lucky, though. I'm glad things turned out OK!!

    As far as doing nothing goes, I had an entire week off from work last week and I didn't go anywhere or do anything and I ate a ton of junk and watched about 40 hours of TV. It was awesome!

  41. This is so pretty! Love the ring very cute! Oh no the glass does not sound good! So lucky it wasn't worse! xx

  42. OMG I would have probably kicked off, I can't believe they gave you a drink full of broken glass! Me and my boyfriend went to eat somewhere once and he found glass in his food, it was one of those all you can eat buffet places and we think it was from the gravy. We told the manager and we got a refund but THEY DIDN'T EVEN CHANGE THE FOOD OVER!! And there were kids eating there!
    I can't believe how some places can be so unsafe.

    Little rant over I love your dress, the floral pattern is gorgeous and the hem is really flattering : )

    That restaurant experience sounds pretty bad though - you are right it could have been an awful lot worse!

  52. As if they only gave you £10 off! I would have had a row, BIG TIME. Lol. Write to their head offices or manager and complain! Hope you ok. Oo. I have that nail colour btw. It's lush. Rimmel ftw.

  53. Very cute dress, I adore all of inlovewithfashion's stuff! Aww you poor thing! The glass incident sounds awful, someone must have smashed a glass into your glass and not cleaned up properly! I waitress and I know that can happen but it's no excuse not to make sure the other glasses are safe! x

  54. This is such a gorgeous dress - they have lots of beauty's on their website too. However, I tried on a couple of them in Topshop recently and they were SO short - don't know if every dress is like this but it's put me off ordering online just in case :(

    The glass in mouth thing sounds awful and made me shiver! Glad you didn't come off any worse

  56. First up, looking gorgeous in the pictures.

    Second, you really really shouldn't do yourself down so much Sarah, you're an amazing person, and whilst none of us are perfect, I hate to see someone so obviously talented and with such a warm personality criticise themselves so much.
    Much ♥

  59. Oh my gosh, GLASS in your drink, and you got £10? That is outrageous, please PLEASE write/email and complain higher up, if not just to make sure they get a good telling off from higher up, this is SCARY. Imagine if you HAD swallowed that, or it had got into your lungs? Or a child had it!?

    Wow, thats insane!! *shudder* I want to know who it was, definitely, haha!!

    Adding this dress to my wants list, lovely colours to brighten up the winter blues! xx

  60. I KNEW IT WAS TGI'S as soon as I read cocktails!! How naughty, their ice is all around the bar so they probably dropped a glass around there, argh. xx
