I’ve loved dresses for a very long time. My ability to persuade both myself and others that yes I do need another has vastly improved since the childhood tantrums that ensued when my parents wouldn’t buy me every single Disney Princess dress… I know, poor me. There’s just something about them which I find so effortless to put together. There’s also a kind for every occasion: the little black one, the casual Summer one, the versatile ones which you can really get your money out of, midi ones, long ones, short ones, and in the words of Beyoncé; the freakum dress.
During the planing and creating of my most recent Look Book, I rediscovered my love for clothes. That sounds pretty silly, especially coming from a
self-proclaimed fashion blogger, but the British Winter always (at least feels like it) lasts a painfully long time. Over the colder months, I find myself falling out of love with my wardrobe, joylessly reaching for my most comfy and convenient clothes over those that I really want to wear. I’m so thankful that we’re now into Spring and approaching Summer so that I can enjoy fashion again.
The Little Black Dress
There are many ways one can wear the ‘little black dress’; after hearing those words I personally envisage a super sexy little number much like my first pick from Pretty Little Thing. Obviously sexy is most certainly not the only way to wear a little black dress though, and my second pick from Warehouse is a little more subtle (if you don’t want to show your whole leg) but so pretty and striking. Don’t make me choose, I love them both.
The Summer Day Dress
The Versatile Dress
This season, Warehouse have the most gorgeous Midi Dresses* and you’re sure to get your money out of them as they’re just so versatile. Pair their Button column dress, or New Look’s Floral Wrap dress with sandals for day time casual, and swap to heels if you want to dress it up in the evening, effortless glamour.
The Freakum Dress
Even following my recent five day late ‘next day delivery’ drama with Pretty Little Thing, I find myself perusing their site weekly. If there’s one thing they do well, it’s knowing how to take a girls money in exchange for really fairly priced out out outfits. I crown PLT the Queen of the freakum dress, these rose gold and burgundy dresses are definitely on my to buy list, and aptly I do need a dress to go and see Beyoncé in June…
