I hope 2016 has been treating you well so far!
I have been very busy as (if you follow me on twitter or instagram) you may know I get married next month! Despite being super organised I've still found myself extremely busy with planning over the first few weeks of the year.
Now I'm back, the absolute first thing I wanted to share with you one of the best Christmas gifts I received back in the holiday season!
Evans kindly got in touch with me over Christmas and offered to let me put together an outfit from their amazing ocassionwear selection. I have grown to really love Evans over the past year or so, and I especially appreciate how they actually listen to their plus size customers, so getting to select an outfit from their wonderful dress collection was an absolute pleasure!
I opted for this beautiful grey stud overlay dress with a stunning statement necklace and a smart but comfortable black crepe blazer.
I think the first thing to note, is the obvious quality of Evan's products. The dress has a thick, luxurious and (most importantly) comfortable underskirt ensuring that nothing was visible underneath, and it also kept me warm!
Also, as you can see below, the fabrics of both the dress and the blazer drape wonderfully, again showing sheer quality.
I love the versatility of this blazer, it smartens up a party outfit without overtaking it, but it will also work perfectly for work over a cute blouse or structured dress! The dress could also be styled up in different ways, for example, I keep imagining how this would look without the tights and some fabulous super high silver sandals!
I couldn't possibly lie, the favourite part of my outfit is this stunning necklace, It was clearly made to go with this dress (in my opinion!), but would also do a fantastic job of dressing up an plain blouse or simple block colour dress.
The fantastic news is that all of these items are now discounted by up to 50%! (the dress is sold out, but is available in black and pink) so if you like what you see you see here you can grab yourself a total bargain, and isn't that a perfect way to blow off the January blues?
I hope you enjoyed this post and how I put the outfit together, but I'd love to hear if you would have styled this dress differently, what you would have done? Let me know below! (also, let me know where the other good plus size sales at!)
