Fearne Cotton for Very 'Seagull Dress'

You may recall me mentioning I liked this dress months ago when it first appeared on the Very site.  To be honest, I find their 'celebrity/designer' brands far too expensive to buy outside of the sales, so I've waited a long time for this one to be reduced!  The Fearne Cotton yellow seagull dress is quite similar to my lilac pansy wrap-over dress (also by Fearne) that I wear a lot, so I knew how it would fit and what the quality is like.
This one features a dip hem, which I can't get enough of just now.  I've been desperately seeking dip hem and half sheer (skirted) dresses for ages, but they can be hard to find in my size and often come with a very 'party' like top half, such as one shoulder or strapless.  That or they're skirts and I'm always so uncomfortable with what to wear on my top half in that situation.  Anyway, this one is slightly dipped, I'm still looking for one that dips to my ankles and is knee-ish length at it's shortest point.  This sits above knee on me and is really quite short, I'm not sure I'd wear it without leggings...maybe very thick tights.  
I didn't realise the dress had these huge gold buttons.  Two on the front and another two at the back.  I'm kind of indifferent about them, they don't bother me, but I wouldn't care if they weren't there. There's lots of lovely tucks as you can see, which all add to the good fit.  The dress is also fully lined.   I'm not entirely sure yellow is my colour, but I think it's nice to try something different.  The print features seagulls though and you know I kinda like birds on things!


  1. Patience is a virtue - and this definitely paid off! Beautiful - can't wait to see which shoes you put it with!! :)

  2. I love the style of this dress, might have to keep an eye out for more of hers as it looks like it would be very flattering :) I'm not sure I can pull of that yellow though, but the print is cute!
    Lovely dress and good score :)

  3. I know what you mean about the gold buttons on Fearne clothes, they never seem to show in the photos online, had that with the insect print dress in the collection a while back. Lovely colour this one!

  4. Where can I get one of these from? searching all over but can't seem to find one :(

  5. Hi, this dress is from last summer and has now sold out online...maybe you'd find one on ebay?

  6. I'll look, thanks xoxo

  7. Girls are extremely conscious about the way they look and hence they choose their Fearne cotton clothes with care. Girls clothing are available in different styles to fit the latest trends.
