Outfit 5.11.09: turquoise wrap dress

7.12.09: turquoise wrap dress


patent shoes

From last Saturday. We were having a mulled wine and christmas biscuit party. I’m not 100 per cent sure about the dress. I like that it’s a wrap dress that still gives a bit of structure at the top (Usually wrap dresses put me in danger of flashing. I never understood this idea that wrap dresses are universally flattering), but I’m not sure about the colour, the length or the material. Maybe a bit dowdy looking?

Also apologies for the pictures, I have no idea why the shadows created by the flash went yellow!

dress – charirty shop, originally monsoon
necklace – gift from Dave’s mum
shoes – River Island

    I love your necklace! It's absolutely stunning.

    I agree with you, though – I don't really think that wrap dresses *are* universally flattering at all. They are if you're pear shaped, for sure, but for everyone else… not so much.

    I agree, this one is totes not dowdy, but I find that wrap dresses, especially that length perhaps require a heel! I know you're not big on the high heel, but I think the wrap dress does create a silhouette of skinny round your skinny parts (ie middle in your case!), and with heels it would sort of push your bosom out a little bit. I GUESS!

    Happy holiday time, I forgot you have mulled wine in the UK, it's too hot over here!
