Outfit | Jersey bardot neck maxi dress

Hiya pickles,

You know sometimes when you buy a dress because you like the idea of it more than you like the actual thing? On paper this dress should've been ideal - it's cotton, stretchy, black and full length. But I'd forgot that thin jersey is so revealing you can see errrrrrrrrthang - knicker line, jiggly bits, the lot. I'm at peace with my body, but it doesn't mean I want all of it to be out there at once. ;)

I might see how it fares with my Gok Wan long legged support pants on, and if I'm still not enthused I'll sell it. I'm going to have a clear out imminently anyway as more than a month on from birthday I STILL haven't got my birthday present! My husband is a nightmare. First he tried to talk me out of buying a camcorder at all (with MY birthday money, humph), then he decided he'd get me a better one and put money towards it as he didn't buy me a birthday or anniversary present. Theeeeeeen he saw a Gadget Show episode where they were talking about the amazing photos and videos you can get with a mirrorless camera, and now he wants me to get one of those, but he's been royally shafted by a client and we don't have the money right now. So if I have to sell some clothes to buy the damn thing then I will! Patience is not my virtue. ;) We're going on holiday in July and I would love to have my new toy by then. Anyway, I digress.

Going back to the dress, its plus points are it's lovely and soft and the bardot neckline is a nice touch.
