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...
