Potential Party Dresses Part 1: Chi Chi
The time has come to start thinking about festive parties (my favourite part of the season is outfit planning!). I was sent this dress by Chi Chi Clothing around the same time I was sent home on crutches and it's been playing on my mind ever since. I've been itching to try it on and grab some photos and finally on Thursday I braved getting some "real" shoes on my feet and playing around.
I am so in love with this dress, navy blue is "my" colour for clothes so I've been told and I felt like a princess lounging around the house in this trying to stay off my foot (for the record, the shoes were agony, stupid foot). I have this earmarked as a strong contender for the work Christmas do- the maxi length and subtle sparkles mean I'll maintain my dignity and it hides a multitude of sins; I'm unsure how much more I'll weigh by then but I might not be feeling quite as body confident as last year!
Chi Chi has a whole host of gorgeous dresses, so if you are also starting to think about your party piece then I vote you check them out. I apologise for not showing the dress to it's full potential, I've started realising lately just how shoddy and dull my outfit photos are; I'm not blessed with camera skills OR someone to take my photos for me so I make do the best I can.
What do you think of this dress? I have another beauty to showcase tomorrow and this will probably become a fairly regular feature in the run up to the big day!
