  5. Probably worth mentioning that the 'Wiggle Dress' by Asos makes anyone with even a slight tummy look like she is pregnant.

    2. No, it has darts in the front, almost like it was actually made for maternity wear. When I put it on it not only made my tummy larger, from the side it looked like I had a baby ready to pop out of there too.

  7. I just bought this dress for my family's Thanksgiving dinner, which is pretty formal. It's really beautiful in person, and well made. I'm excited to get off the farm, head to Chicago, and get dressed up! :) Happy Thanksgiving!!

    1. It's got a very Cruella de Ville vibe to me - just add a dalmation-print cape and you're away...

  9. I really like the gold and black, but don't think I could bring myself to spend more than £150 on Dorothy Perkins - synthetic and dotty p isn't great quality.
