Dressing up

I am not a dress girl. They're just not something I feel overly comfortable in, jeans are my thing (and the fact I have around 40 pairs is testament to that) but this Christmas I saw a couple of dresses that really caught my eye and I decided to bite the bullet.

The first one I wore to a wedding, it's a gorgeous dress and really quite long which is good for me as I am most conscious about my legs. The downside being  that I had to wear heels with it and me and heels are not friends. I could (should) have probably sized down in this dress as it wasn't the best fit on me, but it's still a beautiful dress and I felt pretty good in it all the same. I wore it with my Orange coat from Evans which I am currently in love with. The heels lasted all of about an hour.

No idea why Matt is pulling this ridiculous face....

The second dress that is totally (and I mean completely) out of my comfort zone is this stunning ASOS sequin dress. It's body con - which is pretty full on and it's very booby, but I wore this for my work Christmas party and after a few glasses of wine, I wasn't too concerned with the tightness of it.... I did wear these amazing adjustable waist pants from Asda underneath which helped keep everything in check. They don't seem to be in stock anymore but I'd definitely recommend them if they come back in stock. I wore it with my really long ASOS Jersey cardigan for my own comfort, but again. after much wine, that was also removed...
