52 Week Project : Wk 14

Every now and then, you buy a special something
because it makes you feel a special something.
This dress does that for me.

(Not for others - as someone commented that it does
nothing for my figure, but that's a-ok.
 It wasn't my husband  - so they're entitled to their true opinion!)

For me, this dress ticked all the boxes for my school's Christmas lunch.

Pretty colour - tick.
Comfy - tick.
Doesn't closely resemble prostitution attire - tick.
(What is with 'fashion' these days??!!)
Favourite neckline - tick.
Reduced $ online - tick.
Can walk/drive/eat/breathe in it - tick.
No VPL or bra issues - tick.
Can get in and out of it without contortion or hyperventilating - tick.
No need to shave/moisturise legs if lazy rushing - tick.
Already own shoes, bag and nail polish to matchy match - tick, tick and tick.

(Now has undesirable candle wax motif thanks to my 
Carols by Candlelight clumsiness on the weekend - big ol cross!!)

Gorgeous! I love the colour, I love everything about it. I have a similar dress but in green and it's not figure hugging but it makes me feel confident in it and that shines through - just as it does for you xx

I think the halter style fits suits you perfectly...and sits beautifully on your waist. Love a maxi style, they are so comfy.)

I love a dress that ticks all the boxes and makes you feel fabulous.
Candle Wax??? Lol - wear it proud baby! xxx

Shar, this dress is absolutely beautiful! Perhaps the person who said it does 'nothing' for your figure was just green with envy. I love it! If only all our dresses ticked those boxes.

You look gorgeous, Shar!

You are such a hottie, this is a beautiful dress, classy, elegant, all round stunning! Never get why people make comments that are so untrue and so unnecessary... just insecure I'm sure. You would have rocked the kazbah in that little number Shar :o) xo

Katie J said...

You look amazing, tall & skinny! Love the colour.

Jane said...

Oh Shar! You are gorgeous, my friend. And plaudits to you for photographing yourself so fabulously - that's a technique I'm yet to master ☺. As for the shade of blue, you know I love it! J x

Kate Sins said...

What a fabulous dress! I, too, love a dress that ticks all the boxes... Hmmm, I'm with Julie, insecurity makes people say funny things.

Hope you feel special wearing it because you certainly look it - gorgeous.
