I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. -- Coco Chanel

My gorgeous new maxi dress...

I found the perfect maxi dress at last and I love it!

I have been hunting for the perfect maxi dress for a while now; the only thing is I’m slightly fussy. Well most of the maxi dresses are designed extremely long so I generally just scout the petite section, but all of the dresses I’ve found in this section aren’t particularly me.

Time was running out because I really wanted the dress for my holiday next month, I was starting to slightly worry.

I found that most of the maxi dresses were either designed in a garish bright colour or an elaborate floral print, which just wasn’t me. Or another one that I saw in Top shop was nice but had tribal beading on, that wasn’t me either. I was looking for something in either a black or a striking red or blue colour with maybe some intricate beading or something.

Anyway, the dress I found was perfect. It was from Monsoon and stood out to me instantly. A black cotton maxi dress that was elasticated around the boobs and covered in delicately hand sewed gold beading. From here the dress falls flatteringly down the body and the hem of the dress is covered in gold beading. The maxi dress can be worn as a boob tube or with the long straps that start in the centre of the dress and tie around your neck with black beads falling from the bottom of the ties.

I feel this dress is perfect for anyone who is comfortable with their upper half of the body and slightly self-conscious of showing their bottom half. When I put this dress on I feel very confident, because of the flattering fit and the fact that I feel I’m showing off my best assets and it just flairs out from waist downwards!

This dress cost £50 but I feel it was definately well worth it! I always think, if you try a dress on in a shop and you immediately say 'I LOVE IT!' then you just have to have it!

Here’s a photo of me wearing the dress...

Just a few things you didn't know about me...

Hi everyone,
thought I would do a little quiz, so you can find out a little more about me. This quiz is taken from the lovely Michelle's blog...http://daisybutter.blogspot.com have a look at her pretty blog :)

Never in my life have I been: Japan... I would love to go there to see all the amazing clothing styles and go to all the shops there. I would also like to go in cherry blossom season, because the place looks so beautiful then!

The one person who can drive me nuts is: My 6 year old sister when we argue haha

High school: was fun and bad times...but sixth form was good memories, lots of stories of mischief!

When I’m nervous: I feel sick and faff about alot!

The last song I listened to was: The Postal Service- such great heights

If I were to get married right now my best man/maid of honor: um... not really sure. Think my sisters would be too young for that at the moment.

My hair is: nice and blonde but needs a bit of a trim...

When I was 5: probably crying because i didn’t want to leave my mum to go to school! Haha. I was an emotional child. still am.

Last Christmas: was nice...but it was the first year my auntie didn’t spend Christmas with the family!

I should be..: trying to get work experience at a fashion magazine!

When I look down I see: my laptop and a copy of instyle magazine.

The happiest recent event was: taking my little sister on an easter egg trail on a Sunday that ended up taking us longer than most people! And we didn’t even win an egg!

If I were a character on ‘Friends’ I’d be: don’t really watch it but i think im abit dippy like Phoebe

By this time next year: i hopefully would have got work experience at a magazine and be happy!

My current gripe is: trying to diet but loving food way too much!

I have a hard time understanding: why chocolate tastes so good.

There’s this girl I know that: looks up to me alot :)

I like you when: you read my posts :D

If I won an award, the first person I would tell would be: My Mother hen!

Take my advice: whatever you do, make sure you’re always happy.

The thing I want to buy: nothing at the moment really... maybe another holiday!

If you visited the place I was born: you may think it’s quite a small and quiet place.

If you spent the night at my house: we would watch lots of films, gossip and my mum would probably offer you her home-made cupcakes! I love them abit too much. (btw this is not her cupcake below)

The world could do without: nasty people and bullies

Most recent thing I’ve bought myself: I bought 2 new lovely dresses on ebay. One summer red strapless dress and another one shoulder red frill dress.

Most recent thing someone else bought me: my mum has just bought me a stool for my dressing table that she is going to paint and re-cover in a vintage fabric.

My middle name is: Jade

In the morning I: I am moody until i have a shower (if its too early)

The animals I would like to see flying besides birds are: none. Because that means more chance of getting pooed on!

Once, at a bar: i wait ages for a drink usually (usually i don’t actually need another drink anyway)

Last night I was: watching the film ‘the taking of Pelham 123’ with my boyfriend. It was a thriller and very good. I think my boyfriend was pleased i didn’t choose another chick flick!

If I was an animal I’d be: a bird so i could fly but im not a big animal fan.

A better name for me would be: theres lots of other names i could have. Flusterer(not even a word!), worrier, bossy boots, loud mouth (mainly when i’ve had a few too many).

Tomorrow I am: having a pyjama morning watching ‘fame’ with my mum and sisters! we are replacing popcorn for dry cheerios! haha

Tonight I am: going to bed in a minute. Can’t wait.

My birthday is: 13th March.

Hope you liked my quiz! :)
