Meet Abigail

I know I am pretty fickle when it comes to declaring my love to a dress but I would like to think I am also pretty faithful when it comes to the style of dresses I go for.  I do know what suits my shape and I have learnt how to make the most of it through clever dressing, well at least I hope you'll agree that I have!   It's not that often that I put a dress on and think 'Wow!' usually it's a 'that's nice' or 'yep that works on me' but when I met Abigail I had a wow moment.  This dress just so incredibly flattering on my shape and makes me feel really good, something that should be celebrated!  The cut is just perfect, it skims over the bits I would like to hide whilst neatly nipping me in at the waist and the wide boat neck helps make me look like I have shoulders.  The skirt hangs beautifully and the fabric is nice and silky to touch.  The length is spot on and there are pockets.   God bless the pocket.  I love this dress so much I have also bought the other two fabric ways that are currently available. 

I decided to keep the accessories neutral this time round and have gone for a navy cardigan and shoes.  I think it would look equally good teamed with white, yellow or red.  I still haven't found the perfect red cardigan though which is really bugging me now!  I can see Abigail coming out to play often, perfect for work, play and night time fun!






Cardigan: New Look
 Shoes: Chie Mihara

I am thinking of digging out some red tights ready for autumn to go with this.  I really want to wear a few pairs of coloured tights this year rather than just sticking to black all the time... I couldn't wear black ones with this either, still have a phobia of mixing navy with black even though these shoes are navy with black spots.  Silly I know and something I have tried working on!  I must mention this in every post, I cannot wait to get back in opaque tights and not have to worry about shaving my legs as often.  Gross I know but hey it's the truth!  I did do some research looking for safe laser hair removal at a local clinic who are offering a huge 30% discount at the moment.  I really do hate shaving my legs!

I can't wait to share the Abigail I have bought for this weekends wedding, she is a special lady!

  1. That dress is beautiful and titre right it is really faltering. It fits your perfectly. I also have a fear of mixing black and navy! I think that ehh I hardly have anything navy even though I love it. If it won't go with black opaques I'm at a loss as to how to style it! I need to invest in more coloured tights. X

  7. The navy goes really well with your hair :) I love coloured tights particular purple but I would the one colour I seem to fear wearing (other than when I'm in fancy dress) is white!

  9. I was always told not to clash navy and black, however, its one of my favourite combinations now, it has a kind of classy rebellion I like! ;)

  12. Lovely dress! I think you CAN mix navy and black. Go for it! And also navy and green can be quite nice together. In addition to white and red, as you mention.
