CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS DRESS IS ONLY FIVE POUNDS?…

Everything 5 Pounds Happy Tuesday Beauties, hope you’re all well and kicking. Hope you enjoyed the long weekend. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your advice concerning writer’s block. Lots of useful tips. – Really appreciated! Now lets move on. Can you believe that we’re nearly halfway through the year? Where did the time go!? Ha!! Thank God we’re here and healthy. At the end of the day that’s all that matters. No need driving ourselves to depression over what one has achieved and not achieved. Once there’s life there’s hope. I’m part of team ‘live in the moment’ crew.

In my previous post I mentioned about attending a family friend’s wedding last weekend. This is the outfit I wore to the church thanksgiving on Sunday. A nice contrast mid sleeve dress which is only five pounds. So simple, but oh-so classy and that royal blue colour is to die for. I wasn’t sure of the sizing so I ordered a size bigger. My son said, “mum this dress is baggy on you” and I replied, “yeah, but I love the comfort a lot.” After that conversation I had the urge to add a belt, but it didn’t look good to me. Personally I think not everything needs belting even though I’m a fan of that. Maybe the choice of belt wasn’t right. Anyways I added my old zara red heels to elevate the look.

What’s your thought on belting? Are you selective on what you belt?dress

Thanks much for your visits and meaningful comments. Have a great week.

As always, I would love to connect with everyone onΒ INSTAGRAMΒ andΒ TWITTER.

 

Much Love!

    I tend to belt my outfits quite often, but sometimes a looser fit is just right. It’s hard to believe that dress was so affordable. You look great!

    That dress looks gorgeous on you and I can’t believe it was that price! The royal blue color looks so good with the red shoes. And I love your mindset on not driving ourselves crazy on what we have or haven’t achieved so far this year! That’s something I need to remember more.

    This is such a pretty dress! That blue colour is gorgeous and the red shoes look great with it! Belts don’t suit me at all and tend to make me look bigger! I love belts on other people though! πŸ˜‰ XXX

    This dress definitely does look more expensive, and it looks amazing on you too.

    Now that’s the deal of the century!! I adore this dress. And I might have thought to add a belt too, yet it seems more elegant without it.

    This dress is absolutely gorgeous, can’t believe it costs only 5Β£. You are very elegant and this dress looks fantastic on you because it underlines your figure and style. It would also look good with a belst but the problem with belts is that they create wrinkling.
    Love your blog, great content and fantastic presentation.
