Dress - Chi Chi* - Link // Shoes - Matalan
Before I get in to todays post I just want to take this opportunity to say a humongous thank you to every single one of you who took the time to read and leave lovely comments on my Anxiety & Panic Attacks post. The feedback I’ve received in the form of comments, tweets and emails has been overwhelming so thank you very much. I was absolutely terrified to publish that post (physically shaking on the sofa whilst my boyfriend said ‘just do it Kayleigh’), so to receive such a great reaction and to know it’s helped a few people means the world to me.
Anyway, before I turn all soppy on you, let me tell you about a lovely dress I was recently sent from Chi Chi. I’ve actually blogged about the brand in the past here after falling head over heels in love with their Regina dress. With this being said, you can imagine my excitement when I was asked if I’d like to review something else from their website. Of course I said yes and began browsing through all of the lovely dresses. I was immediately drawn to the Tatiana dress (I love that the dresses have names) which I’m wearing in the photos above as I thought it would be perfect to wear to a christening I’m attending later this year. I think this dress got both the glam and elegant criteria’s I look for in a christening outfit spot on. The knee length pencil style is very classy while the lace overlay and sheer panel at the top of the dress prevents it from being boring and too formal. I'd say the cute little ribbon at the back is my favourite part of this dress - its such a fun and pretty detail and the bust area is padded meaning you can wear it without a bra and not have to worry about your bra straps being on show. The dress is an off-white/beige colour so I decided to pair is with some classic nude court shoes which again work with the elegant style I was going for.
As I’m wearing this to a christening I haven’t actually worn it out of the house yet. I took some photos wearing it so I could share it with you guys (as you do) and now I’m looking at the photos I’ve decided I'm definitely going to wear my hair up in a bun for the christening and add a splash of red lipstick. I think a pop of colour on my lips will bring the look together nicely and wearing my hair up in a bun with show off the lace detail around the top of the dress. I just can't wait to wear it now!
If you’re after a pretty dress to wear for an upcoming special occasion, I’d really recommend checking out the Chi Chi website. They have a great range of super glam dresses that will ensure you stand out from the crowd!
Do you like my Tatiana dress?
Lots of Love,
