Black, White and Red

I know, I know, it's another Modcloth dress, I'm sorry! I was a bit apprehensive about buying this Make Yourself At Home dress because the shape of the skirt is a lot different to ones I usually opt for. I'm so used to swing skirts that skim over my hips and the line following through to a flared shape which works well for my smaller waist and wide hips. However, this dress has a classic a-line skirt, something I haven't worn a lot so was a bit nervous about. As it happens, I absolutely love the shape!

I'm wearing a 3X which translates to the size I normally wear, a UK24. Due to the skirt being that little more fitted I expected it to be a little tight over my hips but it isn't at all, there's plenty of room even with my hands in the pockets. This particular dress is from a collection called Bea & Dot where the majority of the items on my wishlist are from and also over half of the Modcloth items in my wardrobe! I find their items fit me best; not too tight around my big boobs, fitted in the waist and generous on the hips. This is definitely one of my favourite items in my wardrobe at the minute along with the cardigan which may or may not have cats in jumpers on it...

  2. Love the dress, looks and fits really well - not so sure about the kitty cardigan though, looks better without it.

  3. This dress looks great on you!! Doesn't Modcloth just have the best dresses?!


  4. That dress is gorgeous, and you look amazing in it! ;)

  5. The sweetheart neckline is my favourite it really enhances one's décolletage! And I can see from the close ups that the neckline on this frock is really quite fancy!

  6. Oh! That dress looks wonderful on you!

  7. Ooooh that neckline is so pretty. It really looks great on you! x
