We all come across those special occasions when we need to step it up a little and not only wear just a pretty dress, but have that Princess moment too and truly feel like the belle of the ball. Whether it’s for a wedding, cocktails, a special party, prom or a glitzy evening out, Dancing On Ice eat your heart out, because I’m head over Jimmy Choo’s for this incredibly feminine and romantic piece from Chi Chi London.
Here I am wearing the Chi Chi Fleur dress in a size UK8 and it fits beautifully. The nude bodice features a padded bust so there is no need to wear a bra, and it has the most incredible black velvet floral applique over a nude mesh sleeveless top which organically continues onto the back. A concealed nude back zip runs from the top down to small of the back making it very easy to step in and out of the dress without ruining hair and makeup.
The waist is accentuated by a small understated band of black before kicking out a tumbling cascade of beautiful frills and flutes of fabric over a netted and fully lined underskirt. The shape this dress creates is incredible, as it swooshes and swirls as you walk and twirl and makes you feel like a real life Princess. Due to the fullness of the skirt it really slims the torso and elongates the legs, yet it is surprisingly easy and comfortable to wear, as you can sit, bend, walk and dance without any bother.
This dress is so beautifully made from 100% polyester, and due to it’s delicate applique it is hand wash only. Priced at an incredible £54.99 from Chi Chi London, it certainly makes being a real life Princess totally purse friendly.
