Well things are pretty busy here as usual! Working, getting ready for Christmas, cleaning, cooking, shoopping, and of course partying! My party season has been a bit more sedate this year.. although you wouldn't think so as I've racked up three turkey dinners so far!
Last night we attended a party at a swanky rooftop restaurant the invite was through the other half's work so I didn't know anyone! I decided to wear a toned down dress from H&M. I know there's not a lot of love out there for H&M's plus line but this is one blogger who would miss them if they vanished.
H&M's negatives include a limited range not stocked by many stores along with very poor sizing. Looking on the bright side (as always!) when they get it right, they really do get it right, I love this dress!

This dress is lovely to wear, It cost £30 but feels like an £80 dress. The satin is sturdy and not particularly shiny (I hate very shiny satin, urgh!) there are also pockets in the front of the dress (something I know is popular, I'm not too worried about pockets, I always have a pretty handbag!) Lengthwise its just below my knee, which is handy as when seated it remains decent! Onto the negatives, this dress is hard to get hold of and essential to try on - this is a size 28, which is ridiculous, I am around a 20-22. I have only found a few places where the BiB range is stocked Hull, Brighton, Crawley and Reading are the best in my travels.
I hope your Christmas preparation is going smoothly, I am dreading the fresh veg run but looking so forward to having a break! Happy partying! w x
