Last year was the Year of the wedding, this year it's all about the Christening. I've been looking for the perfect dress that will see me through them all. House of Fraser got in contact with me asking if I'd like to review a dress from their site just at the perfect time.
I've just been to my first of the year this weekend, I've another one next month and there are 4 more new babies in my social circle, with a couple more due later in the year I know I will be going to at least 3 more Christenings before the year is out.
It was also nice to have a handy photographer in the form of my lovely friend & I remembered to ask her to take some pictures while we were at the Christening.
I'd chose this dress by Samya in a botanical bird print. The dress is two layers and is on the website for £32 which I think is a really good price for a dress for a special occasion.
At the last minute I decided to wear leggin as the weather forecast was a bit mixed and I was impressed that the underskirt was thick enough so they didn't show through. The dress also has a half elastic waist band at the back which makes it easy to wear and a side zip which I didn't find till about 9pm!
I'd ordered a size 22 and feel the 24 would have been a more comfortable fit but this didn't feel uncomfortable. the top looks a but twisted as I hadn't straightened it after being sat down for a couple of hours.
I love the colours in the dress making it prefect for spring and summer and I'm already planing to wear it for the next Christening in June.
A big Thank you to HoF for providing the dress for review and as always all opinions are my own.
