I rushed straight towards this dress whilst in Topshop Oxford Circus with Rosie recently. The stripes made me think it would be a Rosie dress but when I touched it I knew it needed to be a Sarah dress. I trotted off to the changing rooms and came out to show Rosie with a face that had 'this is my new dress and I adore it' written all over it. It is bloody amazing and I love it! It's a heavy satin fabric that is so stiff it hangs beautifully, retains it's shape and doesn't crease. I want to twirl around singing 'I feel pretty' as soon as I put it on. I have to confess to trying it on several times just because it makes me feel so good. Isn't that just the best feeling?!
I am wearing it out tonight for my works Christmas party and am keeping my accessories simple so to let the dress do all the talking. I have teamed it with a thin cropped cardigan from asos and my favourite heels from Clarks. I had my nails done on Saturday, aren't they just adorable?! I have seen this design all over the internet in recent months and quite fancied having it myself so booked in for a set of acrylics and gel polish and am so pleased with the end result that I think these need to be my nails on a permanent basis. Totally kitsch and so totally me! I have a bit of issue with regrowth which is why I haven't considered acrylics before but the beauty with this design is you won't really notice the regrowth and the colour is all on the tips, clever.
This is my perfect party dress for the Christmas season, link me to yours!
