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?
