Princess for a Day

Callie Dress: Chi Chi*
Biker Jacket: My sister's wardrobe!
Shoe Boots: New Look

There's nothing quite like a dress with a stiff skirt and a petticoat to make you feel like you're dressed up like a princess and the flouncy skirt on this beautiful Chi Chi dress is perfect for swishing around in. There's not one thing about this dress that I don't like but I'll go into a bit more detail about the best features for you.

First of all the colours are beautiful, the delicate white lace top goes perfectly with the skirt which is a real royal blue (I told you it was a princess dress!) Secondly, the back has a really lovely cut out detail which just adds something a little bit extra, there's also a little blue bow at the top by the button but I'm afraid that's hidden by my hair in these pictures! Lastly the dress also has something a little bit clever, it has a padded bust built in meaning that you don't have to ruin the effect with visible bra straps! I wish all of my party dresses had this feature, it definitely saves the hassle of trying to find a bra that will blend in.

For me, Chi Chi really is at the top of the pack when it comes to finding a dress for a special occasion at an affordable price, I'm definitely going to be rocking something from their New Arrivals section at any Christmas parties this year, currently I'm weighing up this one and this  one. Which do you prefer?

P.S. I chopped my hair off and dyed it brown...so much for not messing around with it for a while? I'm such a fickle creature.
