So today the Beth Ditto at Evans collection was released in stores outside of London and of course I had to go and try things on. I grabbed everything that I wasn't getting sent from the lovely people at Evans and tried them on.

This is what the store looks like as you walk in. I really like how it's set out. Had a nice conversation with a Evans colleague about Beth and how lovely this collection is.

This is the paris print hanki hem top. I LOVE this. I think it hangs beautifully and would look great with jeans too if you wanted to wear it as a top instead of a dress. Love. Love. Love. Bought this one.

This is the black jersey belted dress. I was hoping that this would look amazing on me, but I don't really think it did a thing for me. Didn't buy this one.

Here we have the black ruched jersey maxi dress. The good thing about this dress is you can customise it quite easily with the ruching. I thought that the dress would be far too long for me, but after a bit of customisation I thought it looked rather nice. I didn't buy this, but I think I will in the future. I don't actually own a LBD. lol.

This is the black and ivory longline top. What can I say? I adore polka dots! I didn't think I'd like this one that much, but once I tried it on I fell a little bit in love. It's rather hard to get a picture that does this piece justice, but trust me.. it's lovely! Bought this.

This is the black and ivory spot t shirt. I was looking forward to this one. I quite liked the idea of just a normal t-shirt, but sadly I wasn't a fan of it on. It's very skinny fitting. I tried one on that was a size to big for me and it was still so tight. Sadly, didn't buy this.

I really wanted this! It's the black and ivory spot dress. Sadly the store had sold out of my size so I had to try on the size above and it was far too big for me. It's such a shame because I really wanted this!

These are the lace studded ankle boots. I adored these from the moment that I saw them. I can't walk in heels to save my life, but I'm willing to try for these! Bought them.

This is the floral print pocket dress. This was the biggest surprise of the collection. I didn't expect this one to look ok on me, but I love it! It fits so lovely on the bust and I love the addition of the pockets! I always feel lost without pockets, lol. Bought this!

So that was that, or so I thought.. Once at home there was a knock on the door and two lovely packages arrived. They contained my samples from Evans for doing their video last week. I was so excited I jumped around for a little while hehe. I was left to try them on and take photos in my parents bedroom. Not ideal, but you get the idea.

Here we have the floral print denim skirt and heart lurex short cardigan. I probably wouldn't wear these two together, but I do love both of them. I think the cardi will be one of the best sellers from this collection. I don't own a skirt(!) so this one is a lovely one to begin with!

This is the lightening bolt jumper. This one was one of my favourites from the moment I saw it last week. It's rather hard to get a good photo of it, but trust me it's beautiful. I've read in other reviews that this is itchy and they're not wrong. It is very itchy, but it's easily sorted if you just were a t-shirt under it!

This is the black knitted hooded cape. Love this! It hides all lumps and bumps and will come in SO handy over the winter months. Gives the warmth of a jumper but without feeling so close. Love it.

This is the heart print hanky hem top. This is almost identical to the paris top. This one is a little more on the edgey side with the colours. It's beautiful. I love how it hangs.

So all I need to say is.. I LOVE THIS COLLECTION!
