She's a lady

This dress was supposed to be for my honeymoon, but I love it and can't possibly wait 6 weeks to wear it. It's from Lady Vintage and I've been lusting after their dresses for an age. I'd read in a few reviews that you need to size up, so I did, but the original dress was like a tent on me so I had to send it back for the size 20. This is still a bit roomy on me. Not sure if this is because this dress is from their Plus size range and is perhaps a bit more generous.

Their 'standard' range goes up to a size 20 and their plus size goes up to a 30/32. There are so many pretty things on the website, it's really hard to decide what to buy! 

You may also notice a first - my legs are out. We were promised sun today and I am hoping that's not a lie or I am going to look foolish. Now, I hate my legs. They are my worst part and my left ankle is all wonky and deformed due to several bad sprains. However, this dress is a fairly decent length and I didn't think leggings would really work so I've braved it. I can't say I feel at all comfortable with my legs on show, but I am getting there. 

Anyway, I digress, this dress is gorgeous. Really well made, nice thick fabric and very generous. It's also a bargain at £35. I might be tempted to order more if I didn't already have a wardrobe full of dresses I rarely wear.

You also get a few bingo wings shots to show you the full grogeousness of this dress. I can't wait to wear it somewhere sunny!
