Hi lovelies! Sorry I've not been posting as often these last few weeks, it's been pretty hectic over here and I've been trying to do way too many things at once resulting in hardly any of them being done, bleugh! There have been some nice distractions come my way in the form of some pretty clothes popping through my door and this was my absolute favourite!
Now I already knew the dress would be lovely because I had seen it in person at the bloggers dinner but I was intrigued as to how it would fit with it being a non stretch fabric. I flitter between a size 22 or 24 in dresses like this and decided to go for the 24 which was definitely the wise choice as it's a perfect fit.
The neckline and the length of the dress are bang on for my tastes and the weeny cap sleeves are a very cute tough. The dress is fully lined as you can see below and the printed fabric is just beautiful and such good quality, thick but not too heavy and with a slight sheen. The pleats to the waistband are engineered perfectly and give a fabulous full look to the skirt while the panelling to the body is right on the mark not only making it fit the bust wonderfully but also giving a slight illusion look that slims the silhouette down a little.
As the dress is such a classic style but the print more contemporary, I decided to take go a bit edgy with a feminine twist for the rest of the look teaming it with a lace biker jacket and grey holographic pumps with stud like gems to the heels.
If you're looking for a lovely occasion dress that will suit nearly every figure and won't break the bank I can highly recommend this baby. Beautiful and elegant yet with a modern print and flattering, comfortable fit this is the kind of dress everyone should have in their wardrobe should the need arise for a frock to wow a crowd!
As I mentioned in the title of this post, I have done my first outfit video! It's a little nerve wracking and I saw 'erm' about a million times as I was nervous but I'm quite pleased with it as a first attempt! Mega props go to my lovely boyfriend for filming it and putting up with my silly demands!
Please let me know what you think of the video and if you'd like to see more. Any tips and advise as to what I could do differently to improve it next time would be most welcome!
