Have you ever had one dress that truly makes you feel like a million dollars? I have, once before, when I was about sixteen, not sure my parents felt the same at the time (it was rather short). It was a bold 1960’s inspired green and white horizontal striped dress, I loved it and can still remember it now. I was more daring back then with my fashion choices and they were certainly not for the faint-hearted.
I recently popped into the clothes shop Monsoon and I immediately spotted this orangey/red Bardot dress (scroll below, to Shop The Post, for dress details). My immediate thoughts were, I love it but it will never fit me, but I thought, what have I got to lose just try it on. I picked up the UK size 12 and the 10. Thinking I wouldn’t get into either. But the 10 fitted perfectly and I was so surprised. It is beautifully fitted at the top and has a full skirt. It was like it was made for me. The colour is so striking and really makes this dress. It is so elegant and would suit any special occasion. I really haven’t found a dress as special as this and you know I love my dresses. I can see it being one of those go-to dresses for years to come as it is so classic and timeless.
But what makes the perfect dress? It’s all about what makes you feel good! This dress sure does me and you can shop the post below. I would love to hear all about your feel-good dresses!
