That Zara dress

As referred to in my top tips post this is the Zara dress i changed the belt on - it is such an easy piece, the fabric may be synthetic but it moves well and feels good.  I do love a maxi and i always will - not shaved your legs, feeling a bit white, legs letting you down, experienced all of the above and what comes out and despite the odds makes you feel wahey - the maxi - that good old fashion staple - the maxi.  And to get one at a good price at Zara always brings a smile to a die hard fashion fans face - good week to you all x







Lanvin Sandals from last season, Zara Maxi, Market Hat, Chloe Belt (old), Bottega Venetta Bag couple years ago, Mc Queen cuff, Celine sunnies, bangle pressie from my friend Louise 




Big thank you to Ada at Classiq for mentioning my top tips post yesterday xx

  2. Oh I love them too, and you are so right they are perfect for those "How on earth can my legs be this white in mid summer?' days.
    I love the draping on the top of this one.

  3. Lovely, I prefer it when the dress compliments the eyes or matches your hair, which in this case it does. Frank is such a great model! I have to ambush my dog while he's falling asleep to get a photo with him.

  10. This dress looks beautiful: the nude colour, the neck line, the sheer effect. And I really like how you changed the belt to make it more personal.
