AQUABYAQUA Sample Sale Leeds

I LOVE Aqua’s sample sale! The only problem(s) I find is that every time I go….

a) I NEVER have enough money on me because…

b) I end up wanting everything and then …..

c) I come home with things I wouldn’t normally buy, but did because they were under £20 and also….

d) I don’t go on the right days (when new stock is delivered) and miss all the good stuff BOOHOO!!

However I happened to be ever so lucky this time round in the sample sale as there were so many one-off items I’d never seen before up for grabs! and they were all in my size!!BONUS!

I wish I’d been paid in time as I could’ve bought more, but in the end I went for this one beauty…and I absolutely LOVE it!


I picked it up as it was really similar to my Sulphur colour Floyd dress, but this print was amazing! I’ve never seen the print on ANY of Aqua’s clothes before (and I closely follow all their seasons) and the sales lady told me it was a sample they’d made, but one that never went into production. And all for £40 – BARGAIN! 

The sample label inside states that it is from the SS14 collection (the ‘Sue Dress’) so it may well be a future Aqua dress, but I’m quite happy with my one-of-a-kind dress for now and kind of do wish they wouldn’t make any more as that would make mine less special!

The print reminds me of sweet wrappers or confetti, whichever it is I adore it and it’s going to be perfect for summer! 

Sadly Aqua’s sample sale is only lasting until the 31st January 2013, so only a few days left, but it’s definitely worth a visit and you can pick up some really good deals and pieces that are unique! Sigh… you can never have enough dresses (and shoes!)



AQUABYAQUA Bergman Dress & Skirt

Another win from AQUA! I can’t get enough of the peplum frill around the waist! The style is sophisticated yet unique and comes in a variety of colours…

The Bergman dress


Now comes in printed styles (I love the above print!) and candy colours such as baby blue and pink..


The long sleeves are perfect for winter as is the classic black colour..


And as if the dress wasn’t enough, the Bergman style is available as a skirt too! Perfect for the office!!


Don’t miss out! These are fast-sellers!



I’ve received my black Bergman dress AND I love it!!


I bought it in a size 8 as although I can fit into 6’s recently with Aqua’s clothes I haven’t been able to as the waist area has been so tight and doesn’t allow much give way! I’m glad I did get it in an 8 as it does fit perfectly if not a little bit tight around the arms plus although it’s not tight when standing up, I’d have serious trouble going to the toilet on a night out as I’m not able to lift the skirt part high enough as it’s tight!  The materials a different material than there dresses used to be, they used to have a more cottony feel but now they feel very satin sheer like! (I’m not good with my materials!!) Nevertheless I’m over the moon with it!!

AQUABYAQUA Louise Midi Dress

I am totally crushing hard on AQUA COUTURE’s A/W City of Gold collection and there are so many pieces from it that I want! I’ve got a mini wish list in my head already, but I bought one of the dresses that I saw in the lookbook that I just fell in love with! 

It was 100% my style; I loved the bold colour, the shape and the massive peplum frill around the waist! Plus it was a more classier dress length which now that I’m getting older is more suitable for me!

The only dilemma I had was picking which summer shade I wanted; tangerine orange or deep pink! 

In the end I went for the pink as I just loved the shade and pink is my favourite colour too! Usually with Aqua’s dresses I tend to stick to the classic black or white colours, but recently I’ve been loving the bright shades (SULPHUR SPRING!!) so thought I would branch out more into their colour palette! 

Here it is on the website… P.S. I really LOVE the belt! So Egyptian ..


Sadly I’m not 5ft9, in fact I’m barely 5ft so I was a bit worried about how long the dress would be on me, but it fits fine! I got a size 8 in the end as I couldn’t get the 6 past my hips! 


Yeah the bottom bit got creased quite easily and this dress is actually unbelievably hard to fold as the peplum frill doesn’t bend, but you can’t deny the dress is a beauty…


The frill is massive and no matter how you sit down, it does not lose it’s shape at all!




You can see from the picture that the colour really stands out as well as the design and that’s what I love about this dress! 

I really can’t wait for the rest of my Aqua wish list to become available on their website! Another season.. another bunch of winning dresses and skirts!
