Party Frock On

I’m not one for getting dressed up to the nines, to be quite honest I never feel quite comfortable dressed in formal attire. I hope with age one day I might adjust and getting dressed up for a special occasion isn’t such a big dilemma anymore.

Now I’m extremely picky when it comes to dresses- it can’t be too short, it can’t be too long, it can’t reveal too much flesh, cleavage etc. To be quite honest I’m a nightmare and I always feel so out of my comfort zone when trying to pick out a dress. Maybe it’s because I’m short and a lot of dresses are far too long on me, or maybe it’s because I’m a little a body conscious when it comes to finding something fitted.

Dress from Marks & Spencer Shoes from New Look Bag from Charity Shop

I do apologise for the brush, bobble and bag carelessly strewn across the floor of the hotel room (I’m clearly no fashion blogger). But here is me and here is my lovely dress.

It was the Mr’s Christmas formal work do on Saturday night and so a suitable frock was required. When I stumbled upon this dress on the M&S clearance rail a few weeks ago in my size, you can imagine the amount of hours I saved myself searching – Marks & Spencer you are officially my saviour.

My dress only cost me eleven pounds, (down from a modest thirty-nine fifty) I was probably the cheapest dressed person there, but that didn’t really matter because I felt comfortable and happy the entire night in my choice.

  5. Oh Alice you look fabulous! I know what you mean about picking out 'occasion' dresses. I am so fussy about them, hate anything low cut or too fitted. Really I'm a nightmare.
    You are a fashion blogger in the making for sure xxxxxxx

    Don't feel bad, I'm the same way about fancy dressing. I can never seem to master it! I have a New Year resolution to wear more dresses and pump up my appearance! Hopefully all goes well =)
