I wanted to try this dress but it was going to be too short for me when I looked at the length of the dress, shame because it's gorgeous.
Colour Clash Paisley Dress - £30
I absolutely LOVE the pattern of this, it's so fresh but I don't get on with strapless dresses (another downside of having no boobs! When I wear a strapless bra (that I don't ever fill) the dress then gets sucked into it and looks bizarre - anyone else have this?
It comes as a maxi dress also, but again, same issue with strapless bra and dress sucking in (I'm also wondering if the model is shorter than I am and how on earth anyone would actually wear this - it looks very long/too long.)
Floral Elasticated Strap Dress - £30
And this is my ultimate favourite - absolutely stunning and a total bargain at £30
Let's get to me, after all this is my blog! If you notice what I wear daily on Avenue 57 you will notice I have a lot of grey in my wardrobe, I have a 'thing' for grey and so this dress JUMPED out at me when I was looking at the 100s of dresses online. Here is the midi dress modelled by someone who hasn't had children* (*I don't know that for a fact, I'm just assuming)
Here I am in my dress - I wore it for errands on Saturday during the day and literally swapped heels and added a necklace for the evening - a totally versatile dress and one that I am excited to be able to wear again very soon. I won't lie to you, I am wearing spanx and they did NOTHING for me when I sat down to eat a very large supper with friends on Saturday night - I'm just pleased I was able to strategically place the napkin over my stomach!
Have you ever tried a midi? Have you totally discounted them? I urge anyone to try one just to see. What I love more than anything about this style of higher neck jersey dress is what it does to my boobs (those non boobs I keep bleating on about!). I am wearing just a padded bra from New Look (the same style I wear every day) but for some reason I look very Dolly Parton (for me anyway!). I also am on a personal challenge to get a boob shot in at least once a week - I know Avril loves them :-)
Day Look with converse
Was a tad nippy first thing so made it even more casual with scarf and denim jacket
Have you looked on AX Paris recently/at all/ever? They have good bags and jewellery too.
