Maxi-million! #OOTD Post ft Taking Shape UK

A few weeks back I was kindly asked to model some pieces at the Taking Shape Summer Look Book event, and obviously it would have been rude not to have come away with at least one item (or may be a few).  Here is a beaut I managed to nab myself on the night…. the Enchanted Lands Dress.  This is part of the Virtuelle range and I am wearing the XL, which is classed as a UK24.  This dress is currently on sale at £39.00.

I had looked at this at a previous visit, tried it on, and for some reason decided against it that day.  This bothered me considerably, so when I got the chance again I snatched it with both hands!

As you can imagine, being only 4’10”, I struggle somewhat with maxi dresses in the Summer, and it makes me sad every year that another one passes and I didn’t get me a maxi… It will not be the case this year… MUHAHAHA!  Clearly this dress is not a maxi, it should be a midi, but it makes an ab fab maxi on this short fat bird!

As it was a bit chilly this morning, I grabbed a trusty cardi from F&F Tesco, and in order to compliment the overall outfit, my wide fit Emilio Luca X ballet pumps from  Brantano (available here).

The only thing I have to keep an eye on with this dress is due to the way the armholes are cut I do keep flashing a bra strap every now and again, but it is a small price to pay, and luckily, now I have my lovely Curvy Kate Lola in  Ivory/Gold, at least it is a pretty bra strap I’m flashing!

To finish off, in aid of World Earth Day 2014 (yes, I realise I am a day late), my most recent Hair Flower of the Month – “Reuse, Reduce, Recycle” – made completely from recycled materials by the ever talented Lisa at Off With Her Head Millinery…. How does this woman know to match her monthly flowers with my wardrobe so well??????  If you are interested in a 3 month taster subscription, you can do so here, 6 month and 12 month subscriptions also available.

Are you a lover or non-lover of the maxi dress????
