Ah, isn't this dress just the best? It has everything I could want from a dress - sleeves, skater skirt, elasticated waist, stripes, and POCKETS! When Zalando.co.uk recently got in touch about reviewing a product from their site I was very happy to see this dress in their online store. It's like a much better version of a dress I already own (this one, in fact) but never wear because it's indecently short and indecently low cut. The Zalando one, which is actually from the brand Joules, is the perfect length and is made from a good quality stretchy jersey fabric. It's nice and cosy so is great for layering up with scarves and jackets in this cold weather, but it would also be great with bare legs and rolled up sleeves in the summer.

Zalando wasn't a site I had ever used before, but I was very impressed with their service so I will definitely be using them again. They are the top store of their kind in Germany and have recently opened a UK website which sells everything from gorgeous women's clothing to a big selection of shoes, accessories and beauty products, as well as having men's and kids sections. It's a bit like ASOS - they sell clothing from Zalando's own collection as well as from popular labels and some less well known brands. The website was easy to navigate and there was a huge selection of products to choose from, and delivery was quick (and, best of all, free!).

As for the rest of my outfit, I've kept it fairly cosy and casual with the addition of a knitted snood. I got this for Christmas a couple of years ago but just shoved it to the back of a drawer and forgot about it, but I rediscovered it a few weeks ago and have been wearing it non-stop ever since. It's so easy to chuck on and, unlike scarves, it doesn't get tangled up in my hair/the straps of my bag. Definitely need some more snoods in my life! I'm also wearing a rather lovely pair of Ginger Pickle earrings. I never usually wear dangly earrings, but when I saw these in the Ginger Pickle shop I fell in love with them a little bit. How cute is the dainty little cross?

Have you shopped at Zalando before?
