I can't begin to tell you all how excited I am that its Friday, mostly because the Ab Fab film is released which has basically been goals for me since before I even graduated with my PR masters but also because its the start of a new month. June has been a fantastic month for me but very exhausting at the same time as its been none stop. Still, it wasn't all work and no play as I did manage to hit our local pub to have a few drinks in celebration of my friends 18th birthday.
As usual, I'd been working so had very little time to get ready. I tend to wash and style my hair every few days so that its always good to go (although I really need my root stretch topping up as my lighter natural colour is starting to peek through, pesky hair!), same with my nail polish really. So when I know I'm going to need to get ready in a rush, I have a fail safe outfit in my wardrobe that I know I can just throw on and it looks good and then that way, I can focus on my makeup.
And what is that fail safe outfit? A black maxi dress of course!
A black dress in a classic shape that you know fits you well and makes you feel great is a total closet staple because you can put it on at a moments notice and know that more or less any shoes and bag are going to match.
This dress is the Plus Size Balloon Toga Maxi Racer Back Dress from womens wholesale fashion store, Stylewise. They're one of the leading suppliers of wholesale women's clothing online in the UK. You may well have seen their styles on some of your favourite clothing stores as they stock everything category of clothing imaginable and they have a growing plus size section.
I had a dress like this a few years ago which I was why I knew I'd love it; I wore the last one to death. It runs a size small in my opinion so thats something to keep in mind for those looking to stock such items. For me, this dress is perfect for chilled days when you're running errands and its equally as great for when you're going for a drink at your local on an evening. The super black colour and maxi shape lends itself well to either occasion. I also love the ballooning at the top of the dress as it gives the shape of the dress a slightly more relaxed fit.
It also makes a great holiday piece too, especially if paired with sandals and a chunky statement necklace. This wholesale dress from Stylewise is available in so many different colours which would provide plenty of choice for any store!
I paired my dress with my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bag in the Damier Azur canvas and my Primark wedges which are in a nude, suede effect material. I'm all about pairing inexpensive pieces like the dress and shoes with more pricey items like this bag. It instantly elevates any outfit and this particular canvas is recognisable to those in the know but it isn't flashy or too obnoxious!
Pulling the nude/cream shades together with my jewellery, I added a chunky bangle from Next that I've had for ages.
Stylewise have such a wide range of stock and plenty of different sizes too, as well as footwear and accessories. Here's some of my favourites:
