Outfit Post - Sheer Pink Polkas

There is nothing better in life than wearing a floaty sheer dress and dancing with the sun setting behind you. These photos aren't the greatest quality..i had my camera on the wrong setting duhhh. Im completely in love with this dress and plan on wearing cable knit sweaters over the top and boots for a/w...I'm going to get as much wear out of it as i can before it falls apart and goes off to primark heaven with all the other low quality goods lol. It is slightly unflattering though as its 2 sizes bigger than what i usually am so there is just so much material it does make me look a little bigger...but it was the last one and well...i wanted it! Maybe if anyone has any tips? Bear in mind I don't own a sewing machine and I'm not going to fork out like £30 to get a £17 dress altered professionally lol.

  1. These are great photos! Who cares if u had your camera on the wrong setting? They're gorgeous! I love the dress and think it looks fine two sizes too big, it's nice and flowy : )

    I keep reading the news and am glad to hear they're arresting all those rats now ; )

  2. Oh! OH! Perfect solution! I recently lost a lot of weight and some of my favourite dresses were waaay too big... And since I can't sew and don't want to spend money getting something altered... I used a broach! I gathered the excess material together near waist until it was in a silhouette I liked, and then used the broach to hold it all in place.
