In today's post I'm wearing the Cut Out Colour Block Skater Dress from one of my favourite online shops, AX Paris. I absolutely love this dress.
When I first saw it online I didn't think I'd like it as from the outset, it isn't something I'd naturally be attracted too- I don't tend to like dresses with sleeves, I'm not too keen on cold shoulder styles and I haven't worn black and white in such a block, monochrome style before. However I know that the shape of a skater style dress suits me so I decided to step a little outside of my comfort zone and try it on. I'm so pleased I did as I absolutely love the way that this dress looks.
The reason I love this AX Paris dress so much is because of the way that it makes me feel when I'm wearing it. It is a flattering shape on all sizes and when I'm wearing it, I find that it feels just a little bit sexy with the cut out shoulder detailing and I love how it moves when I walk. Skater dresses are perfect for curvier girls because they hide a multitude of sins but really flatter the wearers best assets. For me, I like to have my legs out and wear it with heels but it would look equally as good with some thick tights or leggings if you didn't want to have your legs on show, particularly as its getting into the cold winter months.
When I first put this dress on, for an evening out with Mr WLL, he said 'wow' when he first saw me and said how much he loved the dress. From the partner of a fashion blogger, that's quite a compliment! I think its because its so different to other dresses that I wear. This is a great take on a little black dress and the white looks so crisp, especially with a tan.
