I don’t buy dresses that often as we rarely go to places that need us to be dressed up. I wear them for the usual occasions such as weddings but normally that’s only one or two per year.
When it was announced that our works Christmas party this year was due to be held in a posh hotel I was quite excited as it meant I could dress up a little. I was then asked if I’d like to choose a dress from Next – perfect timing – and jumped at the chance.
I really like the Next website. You can browse the whole catalogue, page by page, if you’re not sure what you’re after; use the menu to look through collections such as ‘going out/occasion’ or another party of the menu will take you just to dresses.
After looking through the whole collection about a dozen times I chose this lovely sleeveless dress.
It is a gorgeous dress although in hindsight I probably should have ordered the petite version as it was a little longer than it really should have been. It was still absolutely fine though and I’ll wear it again despite this. Serves me right for being a shorty.
The quality of the dress is brilliant, as you’d expect from Next, and it’s washed and dried lovely. I just need an excuse to wear it again now.
