Now if you red my big old Party Post you'll know I’m not the worlds biggest dress wearer so when I do wear one it has to be something pretty special and this Laura Ashley Green beaded dress is just that. I spotted this dress in the AW18 Lookbook months ago and knew it would be the most perfect party dress. It has all the ingredients of a great party dress that I look for; shape, sparkle and style.
It has a classic and simple shape which is so easy to wear and I really like the midi length to the skirt. I’m not a big heels wearer either and this dress would work so well with flats too thanks to this slightly longer length skirt.
I'm wearing it with my good old biker jacket just to toughen up the look a bit and I actually loved it with my chunky biker boots, but of course you could wear it with your Winter coat or even a fur coat over it too.
The sparkle comes from the most beautiful and intricate beading which gives the dress its hint of emerald green – a great colour for Christmas. The detailing on the neckline is so pretty and means you only need a pair of earrings with this dress. I’ve worn these emerald green tassel earrings just to really bring out the gorgeous colour in the dress, plus this super cute velvet bag which is a blummin bargain too at only £5 now.
I love the style of the dress with its overlay design and peekaboo mesh top and the fact that its loose and is a big plus for me as it means I can squeeze in plenty canapes and cava, ha ha. The pretty ribbon belt can be tied to nip the waist in either to the front or side or even tied at the back would look lovely too.
I think a dress like this one is a key piece for your wardrobe, a dress like this will work for so many occasions; a winter wedding, a New Years eve party or even dinner on Christmas day. Laura Ashley also have this dream green velvet dress which is just GORGEOUS too.
I think its safe to say I’ve found my perfect party dress and I can’t wait to wear it this Christmas. I'd love to know what you look for in a party dress?
