Nailing all of Summer's trends in one.
Ever since this year's Love Island contestants were challenged to reveal their party trick, it got me thinking, what on earth is my party trick? Some can make shadow puppets, others can do the worm but me? Well, I can almost instantly track down any given item of clothing on Instagram and find out where to buy it.
My most recent accomplishments were discovering the fashion brand that every fashion 'it' girl owns at least three dresses and a wrap skirt from. There was also the cult-buy strappy sandals from Topshop that sold out in two colours but soon returned with three new hues. Before that, it was the organza pussy-bow blouse from Zara and only recently, it was the yellow jumpsuit spamming my Instagram almost as much as that Zara polka dot dress.
Although I don't have a party to attend where I can display these talents, I do have yet another case to crack. This time, however, the mystery lies in a distinctive and refreshingly different summer dress.

The one in question is €89, but that hasn’t stopped it selling out faster than a One Direction reunion tour. In fact, it has been worn by so many people I'm honestly shocked it hasn't sold out already. (Never say never, eh Lucie?)
Floral Puff Sleeve Mini Dress, €89, & Other Stories
This is the one that's been all over your feed - and it's easy to see why. Many trending frocks feature midi hemlines but this is the shorter option making the fashion pack rethink their hemlines for SS'19. The demure neckline, floral fabric and puffed sleeves balance out just how micro the mini is.
It comes in sizes 32 to 44 and although it’s slightly on the pricey side than a typical Instagram find, I'm pretty sure you'll wear it so many ways that it'll be more than worth the splurge.
And for my fellow goths out there, if the cutesy floral print brings horrid flashbacks of your mam trying to force you into a 'pretty dress' as a child, you'll be relieved to know that the dress comes in an all-black version too.
