HtCC: Matches Dresses

I feel cheated.

Y’see, last year, I had loads of reasons to wear a pretty dress or five. Parties, events, gatherings – there was a week in December when I could have worn spangles non stop and no one would have batted an eyelash.

This year, I had two work do’s (a party and a dinner, for which I dug out old dresses and ridiculous shoes for both) and of course the wonderful SWBXmas party (which I did wear a pair of shoes I had already, but bought a new dress from Primark)

Still, that hasn’t stopped me looking at the Matches sale and making a very hopeful wishlist of dresses I would like to find in my wardrobe, please and thanks.
1 Marios Schwab £1172 – 2 Diane Von Furstenberg £168 – 3 Opening Ceremony £210 – 4 Goat £343 – 5 Issa £269 – 6 Giambattista Valli £1502 – 7 Rebecca Taylor £204 – 8 Jonathan Saunders £966 – 9 Rag and Bone £167 – 10 Goat £308

Is there such a thing as a dress fairy?

HtCC: Bank Party Dresses

If I had my way, I’d wear sparkly, flouncy, twirly dresses all. the. time. Unfortunately, thats just not practical. Sparkles are just a bit too much for work, tutus just don’t fit in bus seats, and while full circle and skater style dresses are pretty (and my favourite style), they do make a girl want to twirl about until she voms. Which is not a good look on ANYONE.

I’ve mentioned it before though – I love to dress up. Give me an excuse to wear a pretty party dress, and I’ll be covered in sparkles and ruffles quicker than you can say “wait, why are you wearing a fascinator to Tesco?”

Little Mistress Lizzie One Shoulder Prom Dress // Little Mistress Lauren Nautical Stripe Skater Dress // Lipsy Lace Body Dress // Glamorous Dip Hem Dress // Little Mistress 3D Flower Embellished Prom Dress // Glamorous Lace Tie Dress

Perhaps I’ll pop on a sparkly dress tomorrow just because I can.

This post was written in collaboration with Bank – but since when did I need a reason to waffle on about dresses?

HtCC: A|Wear

I was sad to see the A|Wear store in Cabot Circus close down a few months ago. I miss popping into the store, as I was always sure to find something cute in there! They no longer seem to have any stores in the UK, but thankfully, their website is still shipping to the UK.

With the recent hot and sunny spells, I’ve realised that I don’t really have any summery dresses! So consider this a wishlist, not just for the pretty clothes (and a few new things for my workwear wardrobe), but for the warmer weather. Slightly warmer at least, and sunny please. Thanks.
