A Green Dress

I wore this outfit absolutely ages ago, and just found the outfit pictures! While at the Mina Press Day a while back, the goody bags contained a £20 voucher, so I ran into the store to spend it immediately. This dress really stood out for me and I immediately knew it had to be mine. I love lace, and this isn't a colour I've worn before, so was excited to try something new.

The dress was a M/L and I'm a Small, so I added a black silk belt to make it more fitting, and then paired it with black lace flats (Tesco). 
I'm slightly concerned at how the dress looks on me. I love it face on, but from the side, do I look preggers?

I do love the dress though, so will be wearing it a lot!

How would you make a bigger dress appear more fitting?

This looks lovely, the colour is so gorgeous. I have a couple of dresses that are a little big and find that wearing them with a wide belt nips the waist in nicely. x

Haha, no you don't look preggers! It doesn't look like it's too big at all!

Haha you definitely do not look preggers! When a dress is too big for me, I put a belt on and pull it out a bit over the belt so it's looser on the top - works for me because I'm short, might be a bit revealing for a taller person!

Allison said...

I LOVE lace, and that color is even more perfect. The dress is gorgeous on you - and you are so skinny that you couldn't look preggy even if you tried! You're so beautiful, my friend.
Hope your weekend is equally lovely! xo

Natasha said...

like the dress, but I like even more how those sunglasses fit you ;)
and to answer you question... I guess you can always cinch a slightly bigger dress with a sexy belt and make it look fabulous...

WeShop said...

Too big? No way! You look tiny in it - it's really flattering. xx

not a hint of looking preggers! The dress is gorgeous, I love green and its not all that popular. I would say add a wider tighter belt for a bigger cinch. But it looks fab already x

Kimberlee said...

You hardly look preggers! People can see your petite frame so psshh :p I love that you added the belt. Lace is lovely!
