I was quite excited when this lovely parcel arrived from the folks at Damsel in a Dress. I've only recently found their site, if I'm honest. Look how nicely everything arrives - I love it when companies take care over their packaging!

|belt: vintage (from my nan's wardrobe!)|
When I was asked to pick something from the website, I perused a lovely selection of evening dresses but have to admit this one, the Pia dress, stood out to me. I think it's down to the lovely texture of the fabric - all these different threads making up a rather lovely tweed effect.
I wasn't entirely convinced it flattered my hips when I first tried it on - my hips are a recurring feature in my recent nightmares if I'm honest - but I think that adding the belt may have helped. What do you think?
I think I need a pair of pale green or maybe grey shoes to go with it. And perhaps the beautiful Sally coat, in green, for when the weather gets colder.
