When it comes to choosing colours that I wear, I always take into account how they will look against my skin. I opt for colours that enhance rather than wash me out and this emerald dress is everything!
I picked this dress up in House Of CB on a recent trip to London. I had no occasion planned for it but it was on 50% off on sale so obviously I couldn’t help myself. Following that, I ended up being invited to a red carpet launch party for a clothing line. I love it when my impulse purchases end up being justified 🙂 I covered the event on my previous blog here.
The dress is called ‘Maxime’ which is appropriate because it’s a maxi dress with a dramatic twist. And this ‘twist’ is what sealed the deal for me!
As you can see, the maxi has that sexy twist to it with the waist high slit. The maxi dress is beautifully flowy and for my plus-size ladies, it gives you a break from having to wear shapewear underneath. I am wearing it in size L but the dress has so much room, I could have gotten away with a medium. Unfortunately, the dress is sold out online but it’s worth having a look in store.
If you keep up with Red Carpet trends, this slit is everywhere but I don’t need to tell you how careful you have to be when you are walking because you can easily have a wardrobe malfunction with this one. I had a few when I was shooting for this blog but luckily it was in the middle of the night with no one around except for my photographer who happens to be my boyfriend 🙂
The dress isn’t lined and it is completely see through at the top but I wore it with self-adhesive bra from Primark that you can get here so you wouldn’t need to worry about straps showing because the dress is very open, even at the back. I put a gold skinny belt right at the waist just to bring it all together and then I wore nude sandals that also have some gold detail. I always keep it simple with my accessories.
Just be a little careful that no one steps on the tail of the dress because again, wardrobe malfunction!
Don’t say I never told you.
Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom.
Peace and Love.
