WhatLauraWore: My Favourite Dress

I have been SO excited to share this outfit with you all as this literally is my favourite dress in my whole wardrobe at the moment.  The 3D Flower Prom Dress from Simply Be is perfect for every occasion this summer, whether you’re off to a party, the races, a christening or to a wedding- you could even use it as a bridesmaids dress.  I absolutely LOVE the shape of the dress as I think that it would flatter the majority of women.  It is sleeveless and has a scoop neckline with 3D flowers attached to it, moving down to a pleated front giving the dress volume, shape and detail.  It has an elasticated back making the dress really easy and comfortable to wear and giving the dress a great shape as it pulls the wearer in under the bust which you should all know by now, is my favourite shape!  The skirt of the dress has a sheer mesh overlay with more 3D flowers attached to the bottom of the dress which looks lovely as I walk and gives it lots of movement.  On my 5ft 5″ frame, the dress is knee length and I’d say that the fit is true to size.

What I love the most about the dress is the way that it makes me feel– glamorous, gorgeous and girlie, what a confidence boost!

    This dress is stunning, it's on my list of possibles for a wedding I'm going to in May. Only problem is, the other dress I might get is beautiful too, and would do my graduation in September as well whereas this would look terrible with my hood. I already have shoes that would go with this though, and a wardrobe full of beautiful dresses that I've never worn… Argh! Come to my house and style me? I'll make you cake! 😛 xx

    I hadn't even heard of your blog until one of my friends shared the photos of you in this stunning dress on fb, I'm so excited! I am a big girl, size 28-30 and I am never comfortable wearing shorter dresses (ie knee length) but you pull it off wonderfully! I might just be converted lol. How does the dress feel when you sit down? I always feel self-concious sitting in dresses because I feel like gravity sort of squashes me down and expands me lol. You look gorgeous and I LOVE what you are doing here, there should be more size positive role models out in the world 🙂
