You want a wonder dress girls? I've found it for you! I'll be honest, it's not at all what I expected from a brand known for relaxed day wear but trust me, it's a keeper! Twin wobbly tummy flattened in an instant, no miracle knickers needed underneath, perfect length and neckline - tis the LBD of your dreams! Meet the Mint Velvet Bandage Dress and thanks to Fiona from Avenue 57 for introducing me to it...you can see Fiona wearing hers today too, on this link:
Not Bondage as my husband thought...no you cheeky man, BAndage! So named because it's inspired by a certain designer's body con dresses but this Mint Velvet one has a more ruffled effect going on which is way more flattering to wear.
I should point out that the kind people of Mint Velvet send this to me to review so this is a sponsored post but I'm not obliged to and I don't in practice feature everything I'm sent. If I'm not comfortable endorsing it, I won't blog about it.
I styled this for a night out - it's got some satin down the sides so it's most definitely a going out dress, perfect for a dinner date or for a glam girls' night out. Just like a wardrobe staple LBD should be.
I also styled it for a day at the races, wearing a headpiece from Debenhams..
and it looks great with my ASOS blazer...as do most things in my wardrobe, come to think of it..
And you know the best bit of this dress...you don't just get to see it on me...because 5 other women from Avenue 57 (real women - not just bloggers) got to try it out too. All different sizes, shapes and ages and I think you'll agree when you see the photos that it works brilliantly on everyone! Click on the image to read more...
