damsel in a dress..

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!

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.

  4. I think it fits very nicely and as someone has said, don't hide the features you don't like, but instead highlight the good features and I think the belt does exactly that. :)

    It's always great to get a reason to buy new shoes! x)
