The most unflattering dress I own...

I wasn't going to post about this dress because it's not the most flattering cut on me but then I thought screw it, I love it and it is one of the most fun pieces I own. It doesn't matter if my belly looks round here because when my legs look this good, who is gonna notice?! This was quite a revelation for me, I am one of the most self-conscious people I know so having the courage (such a silly word to use when all you are doing is going out into public!) to wear it despite my body hang ups was weirdly liberating. I was pretty proud of myself afterwards too, pushing out of your comfort zone is a necessity for me, I am far too happy in my own little bubble!

Dress: ASDA, shoes: Marks & Spencer, necklace:gift but I think it is from M&S

I had forgotten about this necklace until I unearthed it whilst looking for another necklace I had lost. I got it as a birthday present years ago and hadn't really worn it in the meantime but when I saw how perfectly the colours matched, I was chuffed. There's nothing quite like finding old favourites to cheer you up! Now that the weather is nicer I probably should have gone for a brighter pink lipstick rather than this berry shade but I'm having difficulty giving up my dark berry lipsticks just yet!


A trumpet style has to be the most fun you can have with a hemline, they are just so darned sassy! I really love the print of this dress, it looks like a thick woolly bouclé/tweed but is actually a kind of stretchy polyester which is much easier to wear, even in summer!

I think you look amazing too. It isn't unflattering especially with those killer legs! I love the tweed and the little trumpet skirt. Basically I can't believe it is ASDA.

This is why I love your blog, because you show all outfits, not just the ones that make you look good (although tbf, that's all of them ;) )

This is such a cute dress! AS IF it's unflattering. I love the colours. :) I have some unflattering bodycon pieces in my wardrobe which I just need to give away.

Not unflattering at all. With that flirty hem line all the attention is on your lovely legs!

I think my most unflattering item of clothing is a pair of dusky pink skinny jeans which are no longer skinny. They've stretched out of all recognition and wrinkle/sag at my backside and knees. They're also slightly too short on me, but I can't bear to part with them as I love the colour!

You look great in this dress! Your figure looks good and your legs with this one. Very, very nice.

I think there's something really empowering about the "I don't give a damn, I love this ensemble" attitude! Despite this I think you look badass too ;)

My most unflattering piece is probably my high waisted jeans, they def make me look like an 80s through back mother, but I just don't care, they're sooo comfy!

this is the least flattering thing you own? but it looks fab!
I own some hideous things but am getting better at choosing flattering things these days. x
