Spring Petals

Lipsy VIP petal dress; £120

True to my word, I am trying to post at much as I can, however I am still incerdibly ill so please excuse the very poor quality photo, and my illness will also explain why I have only uploaded a picture of me wearing the dress from the back (but what a lovely back indeed!!)

As many of you know, I have been trawling the high-street and searching high and low for a dress to wear for my cousins wedding on Easter Sunday for God knows how long. I have bought dresses, sent them back, been shopping to no avail and spend my life glued to my laptop in the hope that something online catches my eye. With less than two weeks to go, I was starting to approach panic mode, considering I am away for a chunk of that time, and am currently horrendously ill, I was starting to think of ways to wear dresses I already own without anyone noticing that I didn't manage to buy a new one. 

But then I found this. And now I am so unbelievably glad that I waited, as I knew the dress I wanted was out there somewhere! This gorgeous pink/nude bandeau dress has a pleated embellished bust, delicate layered petal skirt trims and an exposed back zip fastening. The petal detailing is so delicate and gorgeous, and I love strapless dresses (which can be a nightmare, I will admit... but once you find a perfect strapless bra I think they can be flawless!) The dress was priced at £120, which was higher than I was originally hoping to pay, however the dress is so beautiful and I will be wearing it from 10am until well gone midnight so I'm seeing it as a well earned treat (plus my mum did happen to offer to pay for it, which made the whole transaction process a lot less painful)

I plan to wear my dress with my nude Carvella's, and a white or cream wrap... but I am now having the dilemma that I can't fin done anywhere, so if you know any good places to get one from please do comment below and let me know!

Thankyou once again for all your lovely comments recently, they have cheered me up significantly as I lie on the sofa feeling sorry for myself! Also if you have a spare moment I would love it so much if you could follow THIS LINK and nominate http://amyelizabethfashion.blogspot.co.uk in the Best Personal Style Blogger (Newcomer) category. Thank you in advance my lovelies!
