keep or return: dog print

 
playsuit: diana vickers for very
belt: vintage

NEED UR HALP GUYZ. Am in two minds about a recent purchase. Have wanted this playsuit for a while now and even posted it in a wishlist when it was sold out in my size. It recently came back in stock, sold out instantly again and then came back in stock (again), so I quickly ordered it.

I like that the material is really comfortable, and could see myself happily wearing this for most occasions. I went for a size 10 and I'm glad I did since any smaller would have been too short on me (I have a long torso and short legs) and would have been uncomfortable! The colour is quite a bit lighter in real life too which I don't mind and I think I actually prefer it like this.

It's very roomy on the waist so I need to wear a belt although I can't tell whether or not this distracts from the playsuit? Also I can see the buttons on the back being quite annoying but then again where the legs are roomy I can actually manage to just go to the toilet without taking it off on nights out so it's not too much of a problem! I am a girl of many skills..

The main thing putting me in two minds about this is the price (£49). I opted for the 'buy now pay later' scheme which is interest free as long as I pay it off by the deadline - a whole year away! So technically it won't 'feel' so expensive if I pay £5 every month or something. Or maybe that's just me making excuses again! What do you think about it?

UPDATE! Am keeping, and it looks much better (I think) with a skinny tan belt like someone suggested, thank you!

  1. £49 does seem pricey for a playsuit but it looks lovely, and seeing as you'd never notice a fiver here and there I reckon it's a good purchase! Looks really cosy, like you could wear it to bed as well as out!xx

  2. I love this! I think you should definitely keep it, it looks good with the belt and hey if you don't have to get naked everytime you need to pee that's a bonus! Lol x

  3. It's cute - the main thing that attracts me to it is the back, the front doesn't seem worth £49? but the back makes up for it, I think so anyway..The print is really cute, and I like the belt, but maybe a skinny brown one will feel less distracting x

  4. Ooh you've reminded me to go and look at the Diana Vickers stuff again, last time I looked, nearly everything I wanted was out of stock :(
    I love the playsuit, especially the detail at the back. £49 is a lot though, I guess it depends how much wear you'll get out of it? I'd keep it, but I nearly always say that haha x

  7. Awh I think it's adorable (: The back detailing is lovely and it looks super sweet with the belt. I guess it is a bit pricey but a lot of Topshop dresses that are less unique are more expenny that it! xx

  9. D: The worst dilemma! I myself would have taken it back if I had to pay it upfront.. However paying it off over time seems like a pretty good deal

    I love the dog print, i've never seen dog print before! :) cute

  11. Ha ha my mind is boggled as to how you manage to use the toilet without taking it off....even with the roomy legs! Well done to you, a skill surely worth commending!

  15. KEEP! This is very pretty, suits you a lot. I love these kind of prints, i've got a dress with bunnies on them x

  16. KEEP! Suits you so well, and the print is so now! How you manage to use the bathroom without taking it off I don't know, valuable skill right there!

  17. I seriously love it, it's gorgeous but I don't think it's worth £49. You have plenty of other playsuits :) It's completely up to you of course xx

  18. I was all set to say "keep" until I saw the price! It looks lovely on you, but personally I wouldn't pay that much because I think the distinctive print makes it the kind of item I wouldn't wear often enough to make the pay-per-wear reasonable. But then again, that's probably just me being too sensible so if you really love it and can afford it then keep it! -x-

  19. It's a lovely suit, I'd go for it! Will you be upset with yourself if it's gone again and you hadn't ordered it the first time?

  21. I think it looks so lovely on you! I love the dog print on it, so different and cute :) If you get to pay it off slowly then I'd def say keep it xx

  24. You look stunning in this playsuit, you should defiantly keep it!

  25. I was gonna say that it´s a complete keeper but then I saw the £49 price tag and to be honest, I don´t think it´s worth it. On the other hand, paying a fiver a month isn´t that big a deal, I guess. I just think that if I were in your shoes, I´d probably pass on that one. Nonetheless, it looks lovely on you x

  26. I think you should keep it, £49 is pricey but if you have a year to pay it off then its worth keeping x

    ReplyDelete
  27. Keep it! It looks absolutely lovely on you and you definitely won't notice a fiver leaving your account til it's paid off :) x

  28. Whenever I am indecisive about something, I take it back and then regret it majorly! It looks gorgeous on you and we all know you love animals on clothing!;D. It is a tad pricey, but it is gorgeous!

  29. you look really nice in it, and the colours and print are gorgeous,
    but £5 for the next 10 months or so isnt really worth i think, i bet you could find something similar in other high street or online stores!

  30. I think it's really cute, and if you can see yourself wearing it for lots of different things then you know it's not just going to gather dust in your wardrobe. I also think you won't see many other people wearing it - obviously it was popular as it kept selling out, but it still won't be as common as something from Topshop or wherever. £49 is a bit pricey really but the buy now pay later scheme will make it seem much less expensive. Oh and I think it looks good with a belt. So I say keep!

  31. It is gorgeous, but the price is a bit 'ouchy'.
    I think if you like it & will wear it- then keep it.
    However if you've got that niggly feeling, and it won't shift- then you are obv thinking that you should really return it

  32. Keep it! It is pricey but it looks great and you obviously like it. What's £50 in the long run? :)I love the unexpected detail on the back x

  33. Its really pretty, but I guess you have to ask whether you'll still be wearing it in a year? (essentially still paying for something you may have went off of after a few wears?) :)

  34. it's lovely however id return it. i have seen you wear much nicer stuff and have seen nicer playsuits in primark! am i the only one who think the back makes it look rather cheap? but if you like it and will get the exaggerated price out of it then go for it :) x

  35. Arghhhh keep keep keep it looks gorgeous and the print is adorable! It's a little pricey but it's good to treat yourself once in a while and if it makes you feel good that's what matters.

    Would also look great with a brown leather pleated belt.

  38. It does seem a bit steep, but a fiver here and there isn't too bad. It looks really nice on you, and I think the belt goes really well with it :-)
