I’ve got a very special event coming up in a few weeks. There is a regional blog awards ceremony and my blog has been shortlisted for ‘Best blog in the South West’ I don’t expect to win but you can bet I’ll be showing up to the awards ceremony in my best frock!
I was recently asked if I’d like to select something from the new line of occasion dresses at Quiz Clothing*. Shopping online can be a bit risky, I do enjoy the whole process of going into a shop and trying things on but I just don’t have time for that these days. Who really wants to go scouring the shops when you can have access to the latest trends right at your fingertips. The Quiz site has a nice easy layout with so many gorgeous dresses-I was spoilt for choice! I decided to opt for a floor-length maxi dress in a royal blue colour and it’s very lovely indeed.
I tend to choose clothes with a lower neckline as the more material I have higher up the more matronly my bust appears, which is never a great look! The Navy chiffon lace maxi dress I selected has a sweetheart neckline and the bodice has very pretty chiffon embroidery and jewel embellishment. I’d normally stay away from jewels as they can sometimes cheapen a dress but because this is such lovely quality it’s nice to have the extra detail there. I love the way the dress is cut and the sweetheart neckline makes me feel glamorous and works really well on my shape. Where the skirt and bodice join it nips me in at the right place and emphasises my waist.
The chiffon skirt is lovely and full and on the whole, the dress has a lot of material, which is something I’d look for in determining the quality of a garment like this. The dress is slightly too long for me (I am about 5’9 with heels) so do consider that you might need it taken up depending on how tall you are.
I’ve just looked on the Quiz site and this dress is in the sale from £74.99 to £44.99 which is an absolute bargain for such a beautifully made frock. It really does feel like it should be far more expensive than it is. This is a gorgeous occasion dress and would be perfect for a wedding, cruise or even an awards ceremony – wish me luck!
Do check out Quiz clothing if you haven’t shopped there before, the customer service is brilliant, super quick delivery and you’ll be spoilt for choice, I know I was!
