Feeling Fabulous in a French Connection maxi Dress

Sunday, 13 July 2014

Sometimes a girl just wants to feel fabulous and glamorous, am i right?
After an extremely busy few weeks where there seems to be a lot of plate spinning (and smashing possibly!?) i just wanted to don a beautiful dress and feel girly and glam. 
Well this French Connection Maxi dress couldn't have come at a better time being every bit as fabulous as i needed. It completely ticked all my boxes for gorgeous, girly and glam. Its also loose fitting and has pockets.. i don't think i could even dream of a better dress.  
Oh wait i forgot to mention.. and it's silk. Add luxurious to the  appraisal list.
It has a drop-waist which is a knew one on me as i've never been one for the style, being previously aware of how it hugged me in the wrong places, but with the beautiful light fabric i had nothing to worry about as it gentle skimmed rather than hugged. 
If you have a special occasion( or just want to feel fabulous like i did) i can't recommend this dress enough.

French Connection has been one of my absolute favourite brands for years. I have many items that were bought years ago but are still in rotation and have lasted both the test of time style wise and quality wise. 
And i am pleased to tell you they currently have a Huge Sale on (this silk dress is half price!) i may also have this dress and this whole outfit in my virtual cart just ready to be bought.. Oh i do love a good sale!!

    1. Also, can you see in my comment section if my "prove you are not a robot" is ON. They don't facilitate a way for the author to see it. I have a had some odd comments lately from some equally odd peeps (the name of their blog or their name is just about 30-40 digits in a row. Urgh. So can you please test mine and let me know.? ♥

    2. just submitted a comment for you Renae, and you do indeed have 'prove you're not a robot' on! hope that helps
      and French Connection is a british fashion brand, its one i love a lot, its been around since the 70's they made a lot of publicity in the 90's /00's with tshirts that said FCUK as part of their brand. These days they have very lovely pices which honestly do feel very french ;)XXXX
