Beaded Dress: Monsoon

This dress was one of those things I'd not seen before, but noticed in the Monsoon sale when I was actually looking for something else. It was so pretty, that I couldn't really leave it behind, so encouraged by Alex, I added it to my armful of sale bargains. It's been hanging on the front of one of my wardrobes since then.

Clutch Bag: New Look
Until Thursday evening when I needed a quick outfit to meet a friend in town after getting home from the gym. It finally seemed like time to wear it. And I still love it. The beading detail to the neckline and the waist, and the sequinned, beaded and embroidered flowers are so pretty.

I kept my accessories pretty simple; grabbed a clutch bag and some basic black shoe boots and a coat and headed out of the door. Actually it was rather lovely to have a night off to "to do" list, and I managed to catch all of the things up fairly successfully. Maybe there is something to be said for taking a little time to relax, now and again.

  1. It is very, very pretty! You look very stylish. I am not so keen on the sheer material to wear myself as it tends to make me very hot. X

  2. Hi Char!

    stunning dress that is - the embroidery is beautiful! they have such amazing pieces in there but it's so pricey... especially as when you think of how they buy it mainly from India for a fraction of the price!! great when you find stuff in the sale though :)

    so pretty you'll get so much wear out of that!

    Love Shani xo

    1. Hello - this is true, I do tend to wait for the sale these days. Although I'd not actually seen this dress before until I'd spotted it in the sale.

  3. You look AMAZING! Your legs look so long in those killer heels. (Jealous! Haha!) I'm in love with the dress, it's so pretty, but then, most Monsoon clothes are! xx

    1. Aw, thanks! I wasn't sure about these boots - I'm never sure about ankle boots and what they do to my calves as I always think they make them look even more stumpy!

  5. Great dress, you look super slim (not to mention very stylish) in it. I'm always a great believer in taking time out from the everyday must-dos to relax and recharge. I always feel so much better when I do.

    1. Haha, it must be a magic dress in that case! I don't take time out very often at all, but I'm beginning to see that it is important.

  6. Beautiful dress. As a sidenote, nice bright photos too! Was it sunny or did you lighten them?! We've had about 2 hours of daylight all week and rain and wind!
