All Dressed Up

Dress c/o Chi Chi
Shoes- Matalan
Oh I do love this dress, another absolute beauty from Chi Chi, my go to place for party dresses. It’s a shame I won’t actually get to wear it to any parties this year, but I am letting Mum borrow it for the work party so it’ll get the showing off it deserves. I’ve amassed quite a collection of party dresses now and I have nowhere to wear them, a bit of a shame but there is always next festive season (last year it was crutches, this year my back…I must have a less painful year next year, right?). It’s the work Christmas party tonight actually and instead of sitting down to a three course festive feast and dancing the night away I’ll be sat at home watching rubbish TV, eating a far less festive dinner and thinking of the boy who has his Nana’s funeral today. I was lucky enough to meet her in the Summer and I’m so thankful I had that chance, she was a wonderful woman who’s spirit will live on through her amazing family.
I’m still getting used to wearing more fitted dresses. With gentle nagging from those I see on a regular basis I’m trying it more often and slowly getting used to a fuller figure and making the best of it. One of these days I won’t care and will go for it anyway! This particular dress fits like a dream and I can’t get enough of the burgundy and gold colour combination…so festive and so opulent. Perfect.
How many parties are you off to this month? Where did you find your perfect dress? Still hunting? Why not give Chi Chi a try. I’m yet to be dissapointed with anything from there.

  1. All my Christmas parties this year have a Christmas jumper theme so no dresses for me! That one looks lovely on you though – I love the colour combination πŸ™‚

  2. I have not read your blog in awhile! Love the dress, it looks like fish scales from afar! It does look perfect for the festive seasons! πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t have any Christmas parties as such (that sounds very boring and sad!) but I have a few casual nights out planned so no party dresses required this year. The dress you have on here is lovely, would be lovely for Christmas Day!

  12. Hi Laura,

  13. gorgeous dress Laura, it looks amazing on you! i’m yet to find my festive dress although i’ve missed my work party too πŸ™ x

  14. Very nice dress, I love the back design too!

  15. Oh how pretty!! What a shame you didn’t get to wear it out. I went to my work Christmas dinner last night and wasn’t actually planning to go but was persuaded last minute as someone couldn’t come and I just had to wear my outfit from the daytime, hair all scraggy, no makeup as no time to go home. Everyone looked so glamorous and glitzy and there I was, looking a mess! Still, I had a nice time x

  16. This suits you so well, the colours are gorgeous! What a shame you don’t get to wear it out, hope your Mum looks after it πŸ˜‰

  17. What a rich, beautiful coloured dress which contrasts with your hair so perfectly <3 Also love your tattoo!

    Not attending any parties this year but if I did Chi Chi would be on my hit list I reckon πŸ˜‰
