Feeling Fabulous in a French Connection maxi Dress

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!!

    This is probably the most beautiful floral Maxi Dress I have ever seen Rachel and your styling is spot on as usual.

    I am hosting a link-up each day this week featuring Summer Trends and today is all about a Maxi. I would love it if you linked up this gorgeous dress with me. Thanks so much.

    I don't quite get the French Connection part of it. Don't know that movie. Was there a dress like that in that movie. Now you got me all wondering. It looks fabulous on you.

      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.? ♥

      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

    Oh good! Thanks for letting me know. I have been getting way too much weird spam to so, my loyals will just have to be patient just because of the dorks! Thanks for letting me know. Was it words or numbers only. I like the numbers only kind but it doesn't specify when you set it up does it?
