A favourite dress

I am here today to talk about one of my favourite dresses. I bought this insanely cheap dress off of a swedish auction site (Tradera). It had four qualities that I look for in a dress nowadays. It has...

- Floral fabric
- A belt
- ... Which is yellow
- It's brown (since I am no longer a blonde, and have gone back to my original hair colour, which is brown, so brown colours suits me now)

Little would I expect when I clicked "Bid", that its design would be the most flattering kind. A thin waist with a fitted skirt that hugs your hips in just the right places. It also has a sown in underskirt, which is a must for me nowadays. I refuse dresses that climb up your thighs when you walk. It sort of counteracts the purpose of wearing a skirt. Its lovely pattern isn't visable, and you spend your time always tugging the fabric down. I say nay!

Flowers all over

Another dress from the same Ebay-seller as the red/hot pink dress that I posted about a couple of entries below. Yet another dress I thought would look fantastic on, but looks more everyday-ish in real life. I have no problem with everyday clothing, it's just I tend to lean towards the fantastic, over-the-top, colour fiesta sort of dresses. But flowers are always nice.

Cherry, hot pink or sometimes red.

I had been drooling over this dress for a few months on Ebay. I have no idea what it was about it that I loved  so much. I finally decided to splurge, and was so happy about my purchase for a few days. Until it arrived.
Its colour wasn't so dark as I'd hoped. But mostly, it was too big. I hadn't at that point in time realised I'd lost a lot of weight, so I still thought I was a plus size. But I wasn't. And now it hangs on chairs, bookshelves and in the ceiling most of the time. I use it more as decoration than daily wear.
