ORbergine or OHbergine?

How do you say aubergine? I say oh but husband says or, I am clearly right but I'm open to suggestions. Why am I asking about aubergines? Because my new Modcloth dress is the perfect shade of!

I've talked about my love for Modcloth twice before and my broken heart due to it's lack of UK site because it means I don't get to order as much as I would like due to the shipping and customs charges. I had a little brainwave last month and asked a few others if they wanted to go in on a big order and split the costs. Three others said yes and after lots of calculating and decisions I placed a rather large order. (Little shout out to Jenna from the Modcloth customer care dept who was incredibly helpful and lovely, thank you Jenna!)

I wore this beautiful Work to Play dress to do a bit of shopping in whilst Mr D and I were in Cardiff. Cardiff is famous for it's pretty little shopping arcades which is where we stopped to take a couple of outfit photos.

As with 99% of the dresses I own I would have preferred it to be a little longer but I rather like wearing these little cropped leggings with dresses now, I just wish I could find some more. The dress fits perfectly, it's not at all tight over my bust and fits well on my waist. The grey accents make it for me though, it's not a colour combination I would have thought of but it goes perfectly. Next time I'm going to try it with some little grey flats and matching nail polish. I teamed it with my favourite cardigan and brooch. The brooch accidentally got put through the wash a few weeks ago so it's a little washed out but still cute!

  1. ORbergine? Get out! Mr D is most definitely being silly ;)
    I had this debate with apricot a while back. I say APEricot. Aunt says APPricot. Tsk!

  2. Definitely oh. Love the dress. x

  3. I say OHburgine as do most people I think. I love the dress it looks really nice on you. xx

  4. I want to purchase from ModCloth sooo bad but it's a tad out of my price range :(

  5. I say oh-bergine, too.

    I love this dress on you! I wish Modcloth had a UK friendly website because I love pretty much everything they sell, but I just can't justify the shipping and possible custom charges at the mo.

    I wear cropped leggings under dresses in the summer, too, to for an extra bit of confidence- and so I don't end up flashing people on breezy days! Haha! I think they look cute under summer dresses. I think I bought mine from New Look and Evans in the past, but I'm not sure if they have any this summer. xx

  6. I say oh! Love the outfit, oh-bergine really suits you!

  7. I'm pretty sure Re/Dress NYC will ship anywhere. They have summer length teggings and cotton bike shorts! I have several pairs of bike shorts on their way to me right now.
