getting ready with chichi

24/11/2013


what i'm wearing:
chichi clothing ava dress*
accessorize clutch bag (old)
notonthehighstreet monaco u necklace*
zara sandal heels

sporting another red number for today's outfit post, just a little more dressy. one of my favourite things around the christmas period is dressing up. there are few things greater than spending some time picking a new dress, putting on the fake tan and doing your evening make up routine. even though i wouldn't really say i'm a 'girly-girl' i do love a girly dress once in a while. when i put on this lovely dress from chi chi clothing i felt so elegant and ladylike which makes a change. it flatters me in all the right areas, and i love that the skirt comes to just above my knees meaning my dignity is kept firmly in place. i am a sucker for all things scalloped so the fact there is just a hint of scalloping around the arms just makes the dress even more dainty and feminine looking. usually i don't really go for embellishment on dresses as i like to add accessories if i feel it needs an added extra but i feel the amount of detailing they have put on the shoulders actually makes the dress look so much more expensive than it actually is. i really do think this dress is lovely if you're looking for an outfit for either a christmas party or a fancy meal somewhere. my only wish is that around the waist had been a little bit tighter so it could have sat better on my waist and the skirt could go out in a more defined way, but that's a minor detail to me.
