I really hope you’re enjoying my blogs shiny new makeover as well as all my posts so far this year, do let me know what you think of the changes!

Now I was going to call this post MY perfect winter dress as obviously it’s subjective, everyone’s taste is different but I thought THE sounded more impressive and statement making as a title so there it is! Anyway... this dress (and whole outfit actually) has been by far my most worn piece throughout the winter. I’ve worn it to so many events including the Oasis SS18 Press Day, see the pictures in my post here. I love it so much it has inspired me to write this post!



I, like most people I think, struggle on and off (but mostly on) with body confidence issues and I’ve been particularly struggling with it lately. I think because I haven’t been able to do my normal gym routine for the last year really due to chronic health flare ups my body has changed.  Some days I look in the mirror and I’m like “yeah, you’re not too bad” whilst others I’m just left thinking “geez, what happened?!” I end up feeling self conscious in everything I wear and deleting half the photos of myself I get for the blog (a whole other issue for another time!). I realise this is probably a fairly relatable feeling, chronic health issues or not, and I think if by some miracle you can find an item of clothing that makes you feel good about yourself then you’re winning! That’s what this dress does for me. Which is why I can’t apologise for wearing it to almost every single event I’ve been to lately!




It’s long sleeved with buttons at the cuffs and is a skater style cut, so it’s fitted around the top and then flares out at the skirt. Therefore ‘skating’ over areas of concern like a bloated tummy and the sizeable hips and bum area! If you’re a pear shape like me this is ideal for you. I have never, and probably will never be a body con dress kind of girl this kind of fit and flare is what I love and the kind that I think is the most universally flattering. It has a lovely ruffled section at the bottom which makes it look really feminine. The ditsy floral print is gorgeous too, tiny little turquoise and coral flowers plus black velvet ones on top which make it feel really expensive - even though it was under £50 on Oasis! To events I wear it like this with my burgundy leather jacket but for a more casual look I team it with a cozy knitted cardigan and boots. 

This particular print has sold out (except for a size 6) unfortunately but Oasis are stocking an identical design just in a different polka dot print right now, see here. I’m actually thinking of getting this style as well because I love the fit so much.
