Dress devotion.

November 7, 2017

STOP PRESS.  This Marks and Spencer Limited Edition beauty could quite possibly be my dress of the season. A bold statement, but my goodness me it has so much going on.  

 

Looking rather nothing-y on the rail - as a rule do try and see beyond the humble hanger - once on something rather magical happens. Delicious leg-o-mutton sleeves give a massive nod to the eighties and on a practical note balance out my hips HUZZAH. Other joys include: 2% elastane giving the dress a wonderful stretch and smoothness; mixing up vertical with diagonal stripes is a clever touch as it keeps the eye moving; the colour burgundy is bang on trend; an extra wide, extra long tie-belt is the perfect waist cincher and oh, did I mention it's a dress that ACTUALLY sits just below the knee (so often I search under 'knee-length' or 'midi' to see thigh revealing dresses pop up, no thank you very much search-engine engineers).  

 

This is a dress for styling up, styling down and at £45 don't say I didn't warn you.
