THE IMPERFECTLY PERFECT DATE NIGHT DRESS…

Do you remember my date night outfit post with Dresslily last year? This post is way overdue and I apologise to the brand. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. The order delivery was quite good, but when it arrived, I was on holiday in Germany. -Then I ended up forgetting about the parcel on my return. Talk about hustle! Ha!! Anyways we’re here now so lets get into it.

I’m going to keep it real here. The whole idea of this dress is wonderful and romantic, but the quality of this isn’t impressive at all. The fabric is cheap. As a bodycon dress, the proportion is really off. I don’t know whether I’ve got a magnetic skin or it comes from the fabric of the dress, but it was sticking to me a lot. Aside that, I love the vibrant-rich colour, the off-the-shoulder style and the delicate floral crochet design. On the flip side, this dress is definitely that imperfectly perfect date night dress. A sexy number that will turn heads when you walk through that restaurant door.

The classic crossbody bag is also from Dresslily. It has become one of my favourite staples. The quality is impeccable! To bring the look together I added this beautiful statement necklace which I’ve had for so long, -and my zara heels.

So waya say? Any thoughts?
Date Night dress *DISCLAIMER: This date night dress was sent to me by Dresslily, but all opinions are mine.*

 

As always, I would love to connect with everyone on INSTAGRAM and TWITTER.

Much Love!

DANKE…

    Shame about the material. I’m loving the colour and lace detailing. It goes very well with the bag, shoes and necklace. A killer of a date night outfit Mavis : ) xo

    It is a shame that the quality is lacking. It is such a beautiful dress and the color is so vivid! Despite the sub par quality, you make the dress look spectacular, my beautiful Mavis! You wear it well and I really adore that necklace! Hope you’re having a great week!

    Sorry to hear that the fabric is cheap and quality is subpar but the colour looks lovely on you. Off-shoulder styles can be quite cute. Happy New Year, Schwester! <3 x

    I really appreciate your honesty on this dress. I’m sure because it was Winter, the fabric was staticky. I usually rub dryer sheets on the fabric when that happens. Unfortunately that it is cheaply made though. This is gorgeous on you!

    It’s a shame this doesnt’ feel great to wear as you look stunning in this shade of cobalt blue, and the neckline is so lovely! And very cute with that necklace!

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend and your 2019 has been off to a great start 🙂

    Well is certainly photographs well. It looks great in the photos. But yeah with fast fashion that is often the case. More and more I am trying to move away from fast fashion.

    Hey Mavis…Your bodycon dress looks awesome. Well, The off-the-shoulder style and the delicate floral crochet design have given you a classy look. All in one you made to 10/10. I just love the way you style your dress, simply. You can check for more boutique dresses where I found an online boutique where trendy and affordable dresses are available which has a very unique collection and follows the trend. check out https://www.bermere.com/collections/dresses.
