A Christmas party dress

There are plenty of parties to go to at this time of year and we all know you need that perfect dress something cute and fun that will help you stand out from the crowd. When Simply Be contacted me recently they offered me the chance to choose a party dress of my choice. I had a browse through not sure what to pick, there were so many to choose from and I'm not the best at quick decision making but i eventually decided on this

I decided to go for this dress as i really liked the lace pattern and the colour is amazing! I got this dress in a 22 and it fits over the bust but is a little big on the waist so my advise is if you have a smaller chest the me to size down.

Please excuse the crazy face!

The material of the dress is stretchy but thick so it keeps its original shape. The top of the dress is just lace which you can see through, it then goes down into a cream lining with the lace stitched over the top. The dress has pleats in the skirt part so it has a nice flare to it, you could add a belt to the dress if you wanted but i couldn't find the right one so decided to wear it without. The dress is still available online here if you want to make it your Christmas party dress.

The only negative i have with the dress is that for me its a little short to wear with bare legs so i wore the dress with black tights, but i this weather I'd probably freeze with bare legs anyway!
I wore this with my Irregular Choice heels (which have the most amazing feathers on) my kitty ears and my bow double finger ring. I love this dress its amazing and i know when the Christmas party season is over it will still be a firm favourite in my wardrobe.

  2. That's a gorgeous dress!;) Since I put on weight again I haven't worn a dress. First it makes me feel too vulnerable and second my legs rub against each other and it hurts like hell. But now I find myself wanting to wear a dress again, but the pain...I'd have to wear tights and some sort of long shorts. Do you have the same problem? Any tips?
    Love,
