WhatLauraWore: Peacock Loving with AX Paris

Last night my daddy took me out for a belated birthday dinner as it was the first time I’d seen him since before I went away on holiday and celebrated my birthday.  We went to a lovely upmarket pan Asian restaurant and I thought I’d share with you some quick snaps of the gorgeous dress I wore to dinner.

The dress I’m wearing is the gorgeous and very comfortable to wear Peacock Printed Drop Back dress from my favourite place to shop for evening and party dresses, AX Paris.  I love the unusual peacock print of the dress, it’s so beautiful, very (dare I say it) ‘on trend’ for this season and it is unlike anything else I have in my wardrobe.  For an evening out in town, a party or celebration or enjoying a dinner with friends, this dress is perfect.  The dress has a drop back making it quite short at the front and dropping elegantly low at the back which looks great when walking in it, very floaty.  The dress is lined down to the shortest part of the bottom of the dress at the front and continues onto the back so it covers everything.  I love the cut of the dress, particularly how it comes up high underneath the arms, not unusually high, it just leaves the right amount of arm hole space which I find many plus size clothes don’t.  It has plenty of room is the bust and is elasticated underneath the bust so it cinches you in a creates shape to your figure.  A little shrug could be worn to cover up your arms if you’re not a fan of them but with this dress, I doubt you’d need to as everyone would be looking at the gorgeous print of the dress!


Dress: Peacock Printed Drop Back Dress from AX Paris

Earrings: Primark

Heels: Black peep toes from Matalan

Bag: Mulberry Daria Clutch

Watch: DKNY Rose Gold bracelet watch from Earnest Jones

I’ll be posting a face of the night style post tomorrow showing the makeup I wore in this post.  I love green eye makeup on hazel eyes as it looks gorgeous and brings out the colour of the eyes.  I’ll also review some of the makeup I wore too as I was trying out some great bits from NYX.  Stay tuned for that!

Hope you’re all well, stay beautiful
