ASOS £22 (red) and £18 (yellow)
I also got another dress which I thought I could never wear... it has a gathered waist! Now I am not advocating gathered waists for curvy ladies, I don't think they do us any favours. I bought a gathered waist dress just before Christmas which looked very cool in the picture, but on me I felt like a sugarplum fairy. So, having learned a lesson from this unfortunate experience, when I saw a cute bow dress on ASOS (I'm a real sucker for bows) I knew I needed to steer well clear.
Having recently started this blog, I've been checking out lots of other people's blogs too and happened across one where the bow dress was being modelled. It looked lovely on the girl and not so much like a gathered waist at all - it turns out it's actually a faux gathered waist if there is such a thing. So immediately I ordered the dress, it arrived and I fell in love. The top is a jersey t-shirt type material with a flattering scoop and the faux gathered part begins just below the bust. The skirt part is that lovely hip skimming jersey material in a beautifully flattering cut. I got it in beige and black; it also comes in another colour and I'm currently sitting on my hands to prevent the placing of another order...
The jeggings have also arrived and are eagerly awaiting a trying on session with the rest of the planned outfit. News on this coming soon!
