Sometimes (and by sometimes I mean with regrettable frequency) I feel bloated which rules out any dresses which nip in at the waist. That whole trend was one I steered round as best I could although for a little while I dropped my guard and found a couple of skater dresses in my wardrobe. Back to right now though and this vintage dress is perfect for feeling comfortable; the bust is fitted but it's all loose after that and finishes just above my knee which in my book renders it a highly practical option suitable for every occasion. I've worn in with my super-cosy coral top and thermal black tights and boots but I think equally it could be dressed up with a lace top underneath and a nice pair of heels. It's an unusual combination of gold and burgundy houndstooth with two shiny gold buttons and made of fairly heavy material.
I found this lovely necklace, long forgotten to add some bling, plus with a stack of bracelets and rings. Two new additions are the green ones, recent finds from Sue Ryder.
The weekend has been a long time coming this week, I'm more than ready. Have a great one!
