I was so completely in love with this dress from H&M last Christmas. It was the perfect Vegas wedding dress for the perfect Vegas wedding that by this time I’d realised I wasn’t going to have. Regardless I wanted it and when I saw it online in the sale I couldn’t resist. I told myself maybe I’d change into it for the evening after our informal Registry Office do in January but given that I was several lb’s heavier than normal having given birth just 8 weeks prior this was quite possibly the least flattering style I could have chosen and so it’s been hanging in my wardrobe ever since. I brought it out to show you all as it’s just so much fun but I know I’ll never really wear it anywhere because the lower half makes me look rather much larger than I’d like and I’d hazard a guess that that’s why it was available in the sale in my size. Perhaps one day I’ll find an occasion where I feel comfortable in it but for now I wanted it to have some pretty pictures before it retires to the closet.

    WOW!! That is a gorgeous dress and you look fabulous! Such a lovely figure! I do have one bug bear though,(please forgive me?) I don’t like the black opaque tights with it!!! I reckon with tanned, shimmer bare legs you would look even better!! You look amazeballs but I would love to see this outfit with bare bronzed legs x

    this deffinatly suits you! i agree it makes you look larger on the bottom half (by no means does this mean you are large :P) i think everybody would know its the style of the dress and not your actual bod, so wack out that bad boy when your next going out 🙂

      haha!! you’re probably right I think it’s because when I bought it I had just had Milo and was very self concious of my tummy area whereas I’m not so bad now x
