|This dress made me do a little excitement wee|
I've always loved anything with an oriental print or Japanese inspired design so when I saw this Grazia floral print dress from Simply be I may have had a little excitement wee. I love it when clothes provide a tenalady moment.
|How it looks on the website|
|This dress just announces spring. Like a silky floral foghorn|
I feel absolutely gorgeous wearing this frock, like a well fed shanghai princess. At first glance it might seem too fancy for day wear but as you can see teamed with a black shrug its actually working as a rather splendid spring dress, and anyway you know my moto "save nothing for best"
|Feeling all kinds of awesome in this dress|
|Orange and purple-such a killer combination|
Orange and purple are such a great combination and the print is just lovely.Inspired by oriental cherry blossoms and floral motifs it also features a background print of lace.Its a print lovers dream that's for sure.
|Fab U Lous|
The style is semi fitted so not as unforgiving as body con. Its loosely gathered at the waist and features a wide "obi" belt which ties at either the back or front and gives the illusion of a nipped in waist.
|Great "obi" style belt and pockets-I frigging love dresses with pockets|
The wide neck and bat winged sleeve detail is slightly unforgiving if you are blessed in the chest department so you definitely need to wear a bra with a lot of support so you don't get "sausage boob"
As you can see I didn't take my own advice and look a little droopy in the owd bangers department.Must try harder to match my underwear with my outfit I was obviously too busy backcombing my wig.
|I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so|
The material of this frock of dreams is very silky with a dulled satin finish and also has a jersey lining which means it isn't always riding up your knees every time you sit down.Its details like this which for me justify the £60 price label. Its a definite statement dress and one I know I will wear again and again.
The sizing is true but if you are between a size I would go for the larger option not because its particularly small but because the seams feel like they wont take too much strain.
|I'm keeping the accessories simple (well apart from a giant flower sprouting out of the side of my head but you know what I mean)|
Such a bold dress definitely doesn't need many accessories so I simply added a purple flower to my hair and am using a small embroided bag which I've had for years and was originally by Monsoon. On my feet I'm wearing my Westwood homage ballet pumps and because its still freezing a pair of leggings.
|Its not a dress, its art|
I love this dress so much I have had it hanging next to my bed, rather like a peice of art (which I guess it is) so I can see it when I wake up in the morning. That my friends is what I call having a fashion boner and I didn't even have to buy it dinner-result!
