SO LONG...

dossier-daria4

I've been really getting into wearing long dresses. Not of the floaty printed boho maxi variety, no - the long jersey solid colour variety. I compared many, many of these at different price points and I can say with some confidence that you should buy one from New Look and no one will ever be able to tell that you spent £15 rather than £150. And I don't require a special occasion to get out the Avalon dress, which I now refer to as my ballgown. The amount of fabric in the skirt is very pleasing, and gives everything you do a different quality - as if you're wearing a casual black wedding dress - going to the loo requires hoiking a load of fabric over your shoulder, going down steps the skirt must be attended to - it's fun! But really I would like this dress Daria's wearing in Dossier. I'd wear it every day in the kitchen, to the supermarket.

I love dresses. And the dress shown above is so beautiful. Especially in seafoam green... dreamy.

In another life I too could float around in sea-foam green .In this one I might be a hazard . But it would feel lovely .

Been toying with the idea of floating about in a long dress, but only problem is that I'm short and curvy, so not convinced it's going to be a good look for me, will troup down to New Look and test if I can pull it off.

I always love the polar opposite styles together!

This dress is soooo lovely and I'm thinking of it for my wedding. I can't seem to find it anywhere though, it is Hillfiger?
