We all have a dress in our wardrobe that we love. Either because it fits well, feels good on, or we get lots of compliments when we wear it. This is one of those dresses.
The last time I wore it was to the launch of one of our titles, Wye Life magazine at Llanyrafon Manor, near Cwmbran. I know confidence should come from within but as I love this dress so much, when I gave my speech to quite a big crowd of people, the dress certainly helped me in the confidence department and there’s no shame in that!
I teamed the dress with a bolero, picking up the purple from one of the colours in the dress, and a pair of flat shoes. I don’t like maxis that finish at the ankle, so it’s flats all the way when I wear this.
