Flirty Floaty Dress

 Did you ever have a dress that just made you want to do flirty, floaty twirls and go dancing on the cobbles at midnight doing the samba by lantern light (just me,haha)? Well you get my point, this dress is just so fabulously fun, it was an absolute beaut to wear. I actually just wore it last Sunday to run around and spend some time with hubs (no dancing im afraid), but man did i feel good in it. Lots of nice compliments on the dress too which is always pleasant isnt it ;)









 It really didn't need much as its just such a great dress on its own, so i popped my floppy hat on, grabbed a clutch and some tan shoes and i was good to go! The dress comes from a company that was recently introduced to me. Choies is a global fashion forward website that offers something for EVERYONE. Literally, there is so much choice im sure practically everyone on planet earth could find something they like! They also have a really great Blogger program, go check it out here, its totally worth doing ladies as they are a great company to work with. This dress arrived within 7 days of me ordering it, which is much faster than i anticipated. I would say one thing, with this dress i bought a size Large, knowing sometimes sizing can run small and it fit extremely well, i would never have fitted in my normal medium though.. just worth considering, i imagine each item is different however.


 Do you own a special dress that makes you want to go out dancing?

  10. Hi, I found you through the WIW linkup! Sometimes there are dresses that just cannot be covered up, am I right? I had a dress just like that on, but instead of samba-ing I felt like I was twirling through Parisian streets, haha! I love how the hat looks with this whole outfit- it was the perfect touch!
