Hey Lovelies,

Sorry going back to cheesy quotes as titles. Quote by - Mike White 

A few weeks ago I went to the Marisota pop up event in Manchester Read about the event here and I was sent a couple of items to try for myself.  

I try to avoid black, it's not a happy colour for me and I only own about 3 all black items and one of those is a vest top. 

I saw this dress at the event and everyone who tried it on looked fab in it. I decided it had plenty of colour on it and it is pretty out of my comfort zone, chiffony, black and a tunic top. 
Mark Hayes Floral Tunic  dress
 I went for the 24 as it is a tunic top and I know my belly takes up a lot of space and I didn't want to be in danger of splitting the seams! (don't laugh this has happened recently. Luckily I was still at home!)

At the event Mark was talking about this dress, saying he really liked it (I should hope so it's one of his!) I digress he was saying it was good because it would look fab in spring with leggins, summer with bare legs and sandles and in winter with black tights.

As you can see I went with 2 of this suggetions, the sandles are my mums. I couldn't find my sandles they are a tad too narrow! 

I'm planning on wearing this to a wedding in November with tights and black wedges, but I think it will get a few more outtings between now and then. 

There is enough roon for me to sit down without splitting the seems and I'm really glad I went against what I usually would buy (spots) and tried this. 

This Item was sent to me free of charge but all opioions are my own.

  1. That's a lovely dress Steph and you look great in it. x x

  2. You look amazing in this dress Steph. Really suits you. It's such a stunning dress too. I never go for much black either, but sometimes I think I might lose out on not wearing black so I have become better at integrating it into my style. xx

  3. I know what you mean, I have friends that only wear black as it's slimming which i think has put me off it. I also feel sad when I wear all black but a bit hear and there can make an outfit!

  4. Thanks Leah, i'm really chuffed with it!
