Evans black Maxi Dress review. | Fashion |

I have had this dress for so long, I was kindly gifted this dress from Evans around March for my birthday and even though I think you could easily dress this for winter I just never got round to wearing it. I think it's now my new favorite maxi dress. In the summer I don't think you can go wrong with a maxi, they are mostly cotton and really cooling for a warm summers day. Black is back in my good books so adds a bit of edge more so than a floral dress. Apologies for the dust on my dress my drive is full of the stuff!

    I love the maxi. Can never go wrong with a black maxi :) xx

  3. Oh you look beautiful with that dress! it is so flattering! I love your blog Callie!

  4. thank you so much sweetie!!! It is a really good fit, think its a new fav. <3 xxx

  5. Very nice!!!

  6. I love this dress. It is quite classic. It looks like it can be dressed up or down.

  7. Cant believe you blocked me on twitter...

    Not sure what I said that was so offensive, maybe you misinterpreted that £0 = worthless, or maybe you are just unable to handle someone who disagrees with you respectfully and invites debate.

    Either way I just wanted you to know I noticed, I care enough to write this, but in all honesty no more than that. I was initially inclined to have a rant, but this is your blog, not the place and I'm nothing if not respectful.

    That said, I have my own blog and we can only write what we know, so, you may want to bookmark it

    Good luck for the future, I hope the next person who wants to buy marketing space has a bigger budget, but rather than trying to be gentle and positive here is the cold hard business case.

    You were offered £40 for a years worth of advertising. Provided the advertiser wasn't selling something offensive (in which case no amount of money would be enough) and their offer was non exclusive, based on your output in 2012 they were offering you £1 per post. Granted you have put out that amount so far in 2013 but they are paying you with no guarantee that you will continue to post, all the risk is on them. Based on the stats for your followers on the blog (according to figures at the bottom of the page 439) they were offering £0.09 per person.

    I used to sell advertising, a full page ad in the Evening Standard has a face value of £17,000 but you can get it for about £14,000 that will reach 7million people so about £0.002 per person.

    Not to mention that according to your tweet this was an unsolicited offer, you put in no additional effort to get it.

    In short you turned your nose up at a more than fair offer. Your work may be a labour of love and priceless but to someone looking for advertising space they carry all the risk so there is a formula.

    What I couldn't say, either for fear of causing offence or because I don't like taking a hammer to fragile egos, is that in the same position, I wouldn't even have offered you that much.

    At the end of the day, the written word is art, and all art is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay, there was a time when you could get a Picasso for a hot meal and a beer.

  8. wooow gorgeous!!

    would u like to follow

    each other?

  9. No Peter I blocked you because A. You Anatgonise me which again is shown with the kind of things you feel you have to write and b, because everything I write you feel you have to comment on and you always disagree with what I have to say. If you don't agree with any of my thoughts or opinions then I don't understand why you want go follow me?
    No offence Peter but you were the ONLY person with that opinion and before you try to guess my stats I care not about money. The advertisement was for a hair salon in America. Do I look like I write about hair? Do I live in the US. No. I don't appreciate you telling me what I should and shouldn't expect, it's my blog, my space, my time, my effort. What works for one person doesn't for another. I still stand by what I say, that number was insulting. I am open to debates hence why I have had discussions with you previously e.g - Prof Green, My directors wife's story and now this but it all gets too much when I feel like I'm constantly debating. I am not a rude person I just thought it best that to avoid me getting annoyed that I just remove you from my feed. I'm sure you are not a rude person or intentionally meant to be rude when you said my blog was worth £0 but it did offend me. Sadly that is the case.

  10. You look lovely. I really like the accessories with the dress too. xx
