Tie Up Dress

 

 

 

When I think of winter, the first thing that comes to mind is staying warm and dry under blankets in front of the fire, wearing ugg boots. When I think of summer, I think of going out and making the most of daylight savings. Having to dress up and going out in winter isn’t at all desirable because I know I’m going to sacrifice some warmth and comfort to look good. I have memories of going out at night in the city, in my early twenties wearing nothing but a dress in 10 degree weather. I look back on that now and I don’t know how I did it. I suspect sheer vanity or youth. I might only be 29 now, but ladies, times have changed. I now freeze my butt off when it’s 16 degrees, that’s WITH layers.

 

Wearing a dress to a party is always my first preference. There’s something about wearing a dress that makes me feel like a lady, sexy yet elegant. Anything that makes you feel those things is a winner in my books.

There’s a lot of tie up dresses, tops and skirts this season and I’m loving it. A tie up dress is really flattering and great for hiding bumps and any unwanted lady lumps. When I saw the Zoe Tie Dress from Lace and Heels Boutique on Instagram – it simply had to be mine.

 

I’ve worn this dress to a couple of different events, it’s really warm and the perfect dress for winter. The first time I wore it, I was in Melbourne for a stylist night. It wasn’t too cold yet so I got away with wearing just the dress and my leopard points. Leopard and burgundy, what a great colour combination right? The second time I wore it, was for a birthday and it was a lot colder. I paired the dress with my leather jacket, opaque stockings and black boots.

They no longer have this dress in burgundy but they do in black and grey. To purchase, click on either black or grey and I’ll take you straight through to the website. The dress is $69.95. Sizes go up to 12 – I’m wearing the size 12. Option for express shipping is available.

 

So readers, do you love wearing dresses to events? Do you like the in trend tie up style?

What I Wore To Work: Atmos&Here

 

I was meant to post this my first week back to work but I’ve been missing in action organising my friend’s hen’s celebration which was on the weekend.  On a side note, organising an event is stressful right? I’ve been dying to show you this dress for a while now and I hope you love it as much as I do.

I love the brand Atmos&Here.  I’m always guaranteed to find something I love by Atmos&Here on The Iconic website… every single time!

 

I haven’t bought much work attire in a long time so, my outfits for work are looking pretty average. I didn’t want to start work in the New Year wearing something quite ordinary to only end up feeling quite ordinary by the end of my first day back.  You want to feel confident at work and when you love what you’re wearing, you feel great and your confidence shines through.

The Collette Jersey Wrap Dress is versatile, you’re not just limited to wearing it to work, it doubles as a weekeend dress.  I’m short, curvy and this style of dress compliments my figure.  A V neck gives the illusion of a longer neck than what I actually do and it’s also good for the bust area.

I love the monochrome pattern and how comfortable it is especially in the warm weather.

 

So readers, what do you think of my new dress? Have you bought anything from Atmos&Here before?

 

What I Wore: Work Christmas Party

 

 

It was that time of the year again, when people drink too much and make a fool of themselves in front of their colleagues.  Yes I’m talking about the annual work Christmas party.  For the last four years there’s always been a certain dress theme so, it was a nice change to be able to dress up as myself, rather than Pocahontas who I dressed up as last year.

 

Last Friday night, I bought this Sunny girl dress a couple of weeks ago for my Christmas party and I couldn’t wait to show you it.  This dress was my first purchase from Evergreen clothing. I stumbled across this shop on Instagram.  If I ever need anything I just go on Instagram these days because that’s where I’ll find it and even if I don’t need anything I’ll still find something I want on Instagram.  If you’re broke or trying to save money stay off Instagram that would be my recommendation ladies, if you’re anything like me.

I saw this dress on Evergreen clothing and I fell in love with the print. The v neckline which is great for busty women and its knee length is the perfect length for hanging out with work colleagues.  Just one problem, the store is in Mornington and I live in Sydney, I’m not traveling interstate for a dress.  I click on the link to their website in their Instagram profile and their website isn’t ready yet for purchasing online.  At this point I don’t know whether to give up and find another dress for my Christmas party or ask the question on Instagram, is there a way I can purchase this dress?  I sent them an email and they quickly responded. Mel always replied to my emails in a friendly and helpful manner.  I wanted to mention this because working in customer service myself I appreciate friendly and efficient people, adds to the buying experience.

 

If this Sunny girl dress isn’t for you and you have an Instagram account, you need to checkout Evergreen clothing because they have some beautiful clothing at affordable prices.  If you don’t have Instagram you need to get onto that ASAP!

 

The dress is made out of 100% spun rayon,  lightweight and breathable which is perfect for hot Australian summer days.  There is a zipper down the side and ribbon to tie a bow.  I’m wearing a size 12.

 

Tan or white shoes would be perfect to wear with this dress.

 

So readers do you love this dress too? Are you also addicted to Instagram?
