On that note… this is one of those outfits. I DO like it in principle. What’s not to like? It’s red. It’s a good, not-too-short/not-too-long length. It’s a flattering cut. It’s, frankly, boobalicious. And yet, when I wore this out last Saturday, I did not feel good. To the extent that I debated including it in my blog at all. But, you know, not all outfits can be favourites. Sometimes you wear something and realise that it's not right for you, after all.
Dress – Warehouse
Shoes – Matalan
Belt – Vivien of Holloway (borrowed)
Necklace – Topshop
Perhaps my issues with the dress were that I’ve gained a little weight recently (hence my new blog project, which I talked about on Monday) and the dress simply didn’t fit like it did last time. I seemed to spend the entire night pulling up the bodice and trying to stop it showing my bra. Borrowing my friend’s magic belt did help a lot (you can see the difference), but even so. No. Not a dress I’ll be wheeling out again for a while.
Anyway. Sorry for the Dress Downer this week, but don’t worry – I’m sure I’ll be back on form next week! It got paid on Tuesday and I have a few new dresses to show off.
On a brighter note, though, the patent Mary-Janes I was wearing are the most comfortable heels I own. Even though you can't really see them, I must extol their virtues. I wish Matalan would sell them again. I need a million pairs. In every colour. Please.
