L AST week I talked about the yellow dress that got away…
so today I thought I’d share one that didn’t!
This lovely frock was kindly sent to me by Precis Petite (don’t be put off by the ‘Petite’ bit, I’m 5ft6 and this dress was absolutely fine on me!) as one of two, to help me get this dress blogging started!
And I have to tell you it certainly knows how to cheer me up and brighten up a gloomy grey day. Especially when mixed with the largest balloon arrangement I have ever seen!
Because although I absolutely adore timeless little black dresses, let’s face it, wearing a bold, vibrant colour that suits your colouring, just helps to make you look and feel great.
It makes you look younger, it helps disguise those big dark circles under your eyes (thank you Elsie darling!) and it just gives you a bit of pizazz. A bit of flair. A bit of boldness. On those days when perhaps you’re feeling anything but!
Such is the power of a dream dress.
I love yellow. It’s one of my favourite colours and so wearing it always makes me a cheery chap.
And I also love lace, so this little beauty gets top marks from me.
Comfy to wear and flattering on the figure, it’s described as an occasion dress and yes, whilst this stunner would undoubtedly be ideal to wear to someone’s nuptials or to any other fancy occasion, it’s also perfect -I think – as a day dress.
The perfect day dress to wear for lunch with friends or on a date afternoon with your beloved.
Dressed up or down, this bright and bold yellow dress, leaves me feeling anything but mellow!
Which really when it comes to wearing a dress, is EXACTLY what it’s all about.
