Outfit Post || Green and gold

Hiya pickles!

I bought this dress from the ASOS Curve sale for £9 because there was an extra 10% off code at the time. What a bargain! I don't have a lot of green in my wardrobe, which I had to address.

It's a one shoulder dress, and you can see what it looks like without the shrug covering it a few photos down. I don't have a suitable bra for this dress, and those multi-way things look more like bondage than something I want to put on my body to hold my chesticles aloft, so a shrug (and a well placed brooch to hold the shrug and dress together if I were going out) covers up the expanse of bra on show.

Dresses with ruching or draping on the sides are so flattering for me. (I know the F word is an unpopular one in fat circles but I don't mind a bit of a flattering cut on the odd occasion.) I do have a waist in there somewhere but it's not a particularly well defined one, so ruching draws the eye in and I like the shapeliness it creates.
