Fresh Flames Boutique recently asked me if I would like to be a part of their Blogger's Style Challenge, so I picked this lovely grey, glittery dress! Usually, I scream and run away from anything that's remotely body-con, because I have massive hips and a bum bigger than Russia that not even control pants can save. Oh, and don't even get me started on my constant food baby! However, even though it's a little scary I think once in a while I think it's good to step out of your comfort zone (aka. baggy dresses and boyfriend's t-shirts). After a bit of squirming to try and get into this dress, I've found it actually sucks you in! Hallelujah!

This dress is actually incredibly versatile! When I think of bodycon, I usually limit it to evening wear and tottering around in heels, so when Fresh Flames sent me the challenge to dress it up for a daytime look too, I must admit I was dubious at first. It was actually surprisingly easy to work it into a casual and comfortable day-time look considering my previous doubts. My ever faithful velvet Doc Martens and knee-highs worked with it wonderfully to dress it down. Of course, it also works incredibly well as an evening dress! It would be simple enough to just throw it on with a pair of heels, but I wanted to add a little extra so I popped this tie-dye kimono over the top.

I think this is possibly the first time my legs have ever appeared on my blog - shock horror! Blog, this my legs. Legs, this is my blog. I must admit I'm not a fan of baring my legs as it scares me to death that the world has to see them in all their pasty pale glory, but tights just didn't seem to work as well with these looks! Some serious bravery on my part - I deserve a cookie.

  11. You should really wear body con more often, you have such a gorgeous figure and I do not see any big hips!! I guess we all think the worst about our own bodies but honestly you look a beaut!!
    Love the colour of the dress too, really fits in well with your style. I love both the looks but like it paired with the kimono! xx
