Remember a little while ago when I put this maxi dress on my wishlist, but was a bit worried about the fit as it was actually a maternity dress? Well, I did order it & finally, after months of languishing in my ‘must fix’ pile, I made the few alterations it needed & now I’m actually able to wear it. I just thought it was too nice of a dress to pass up, when all it needed was 5 minutes of adjustments & I’m so glad I did. You can never have enough maxis & this one has the perfect amount of detail for warm days like this too, it needs no fussy accessories to add interest, just throw it on & go.

I couldn’t resist giving this necklace from Belles Bejewelled it’s first outing as soon as it arrived though! The latest collection focuses on using gold thread to create intricate geometric patterns ontop of the signature perspex shapes & it adds a nice new dimension to the pieces.

    glad you got up and got it done! my ‘must fix’ pile needs some attention too, well sometimes the pile is more of a, ‘must make’ pile of fabric. either way starting is sometimes the hardest part. xx

    Wow, what a difference a sewing machine can make. The dress looks gorgeous on you, a great fit – you always seem to reimagine black on black on black, yet it works! x

    Loving the maxi dress and it looks beautiful on you!! Tbh you could never tell this was once a maternity dress such a wonderful fit and shape, and I especially love the panel detailing around the bust as it adds to the overall look! I really like the necklace its different from anything else I have seen and like how the gold just pops! xx
