Buffet dress. My term for dresses which have no discernible waist and let you eat all you like. I'm going to be living in them this summer. The one I have on above is one I picked up in February when it was freezing cold outside but I was thinking of warmer days ahead. Yes, I have a very active imagination and I had hope inside of me. Hope for a lovely long warm summer even though I'm a bit rubbish when it's too hot. I'm also rubbish when it's a bit too cold too. I like it just so. #awkwardbeggar
I had a few enquiries about the dress and if you'd like to know a little more, it's from La Redoute. I picked it up when it went in to their sale at the time and then I had another discount code on top of that and it came to not very much at all. However, it has now come back up to full price - but the code SUMMER25 or HEAT should get you 25% off. It's 100% viscose, feels quite light and when it arrives, it looks a little crumpled but it's the kind of viscose which when you give it an iron, the fabric hangs quite well and doesn't crease much after that. Strange but true. It's a generous fit and I did wonder whether I needed to size down but I decided to stick it in the wash and see what happened. It shrunk ... in length by about an inch which wasn't the plan but it still fits me fine. I just thought I'd tell you because that's how I am. Oh ... and I put on a slip underneath it. We don't want any Princess Di moments now do we?
Anyway, I've probably bored you now wittering about this dress and I will probably bore you with more buffet dresses in the months ahead. Ho hum.
Me - probably thinking about buffet dresses.
