Big Sleeves...Big Hair

Thursday, 2 April 2015

It's a good job I saved this dress for today. If I'd worn it earlier in the week there's a distinct chance I'd have taken off and been blown across the Irish Sea.

There is a lot of fabric in these sleeves. If a gust of wind had caught them in the wrong direction, I reckon I'd have been rapidly transformed into a well-dressed kite.

It's excellent fun to wear though. I feel very dramatic.

It barely needs any embellishments either. I've tried wearing a cardigan over it and well, that turned into a giant tangle of fabric. Luckily the dress fabric is a really nice thick jersey so it's lovely and warm just by itself. If I need extra warmth I can always tuck myself up in the sleeves!

  1. Alex, your posts never fail to put a smile on my face! You look lovely and the pattern on this dress is gorgeous, and also in my favourite colour, green. Lovely! - Tasha

  2. Aw, I love this dress and it really doesn't need anything else - looks great!

  3. What a gorgeous dress! Perfect for the spring (when we eventually get one...) Love your hair too :D

  4. You look so good in it! I bought this dress too but gave it to charity shop without wearing it as it completely swamped me and looked bad!x

  5. What a gorgeous dress, you look stunning! I love a bit of paisley and in my favourite colour too, just lovely x

  6. What a stunning dress, you look amazing in it Alex! x

  7. What a fantastic dress. Those sleeves!! I used to have a dressy top with similar sleeves which I wore to school discos. God I loved it, but the sleeves had a habit of getting caught in car doors or on door handles. It's worth suffering for awesome sleeves though.

  8. You could have been floating through the air like Mary Poppins!

  9. This is such a gorgeous dress, I love anything that you can swoosh around dramatically in!

  10. This is all kinds of awesome, just be careful not to get yourself tangled up in moving parts and avoid cooking in it at all costs!
    Totally envious of your hair - look at it all!
