Dress c/o Chi Chi
Oh I do love this dress, another absolute beauty from Chi Chi, my go to place for party dresses. It's a shame I won't actually get to wear it to any parties this year, but I am letting Mum borrow it for the work party so it'll get the showing off it deserves. I've amassed quite a collection of party dresses now and I have nowhere to wear them, a bit of a shame but there is always next festive season (last year it was crutches, this year my back...I must have a less painful year next year, right?). It's the work Christmas party tonight actually and instead of sitting down to a three course festive feast and dancing the night away I'll be sat at home watching rubbish TV, eating a far less festive dinner and thinking of the boy who has his Nana's funeral today. I was lucky enough to meet her in the Summer and I'm so thankful I had that chance, she was a wonderful woman who's spirit will live on through her amazing family.
I'm still getting used to wearing more fitted dresses. With gentle nagging from those I see on a regular basis I'm trying it more often and slowly getting used to a fuller figure and making the best of it. One of these days I won't care and will go for it anyway! This particular dress fits like a dream and I can't get enough of the burgundy and gold colour combination...so festive and so opulent. Perfect.
How many parties are you off to this month? Where did you find your perfect dress? Still hunting? Why not give Chi Chi a try. I'm yet to be dissapointed with anything from there.
