The Pretty and Pink Dress

With its dusky pink hue, dainty pleats and pearl detailling, you'd be forgiven for thinking that I looked like a meadow princess. Ahem! This dress quite possibly works miracles: when it's not out saving the world, it's making me feel like a million pennies. Even though the winter months are drawing in, I'm still planning on getting a lot of wear out of this pastel beauty. I'm picturing suspender tights and a hat of some description or knee high socks and some sort of strappy shoe. I also need to remember to pick up a more colour appropriate belt to wear with it! How would you wear it for A/W? Leave me some styling ideas in the comments section! 

Usually, this sort of style of dress, with a high line above my boobies, doesn't work for me but I'm kind of embracing the silhouette it gives me - interestingly top heavy and hippy but still quite alluring. Unfortunately, I was blessed with a huge back and a wacking great pair of hips. However, I've come to realise that these can be good things and I kinda feel like that when I wear this beauty. It felt so wonderfully strange to take these photographs too. Maybe I should break out of my comfort zone more often?! (Or not, as the case may be....) I'm off to re-cooperate after this weekend's antics 




  1. That dress is so unbelievably pretty, you look lovely!

  2. you look truly beautiful bee :) i love the colour of the dress it really goes with your hair. haha join the club of big hips lol my shoulders are as wide as my brothers...go i am so attractive hahaha you look wonderful...i still wish you to marry you hahaha xxxxx

  3. Waaa what a beautiful lady, and the dress is okay too ;) such a pretty colour and the swan detailing is adorable. I'm such a sucker for animal motifs! I'd probs wear this with a huge chunky knit, little brogue boots and silly amounts of bracelets (: xxxx

  4. What a cute dress, I love the little swans <3 <3 xx

  5. What a gorgeous dress! (and lady wearing it, obviously). I'd definitely be tempted to go with tights and ankle boots once it gets a bit colder!

  6. like the dress! Looks very good on you :)

  7. What a lovely dress! Ladylike without being too old-fashioned. The lighting in your photo is gorgeous, too. I reckon something this girly should be clashed a bit so I'd go for a studded leather jacket and maybe some leather ankle boots with a chunky heel.


  8. I think I would wear that dress with a deep red belt and some black brogues, layered up with a nice thick tweed coat and deep red scarf. Personally I think pink is such a versatile colour, even for the autumn/winter.

    I really like outfit posts, I guess I am just nosy to see what people wear. I do think it is a good source of inspiration, much better than high-end fashion sites.

    Beautiful photographs by the way. :)

  9. Pretty lady! Lovely post as ever Bee!

  10. With a dress like this i would probably try to grunge it up
    a little for autumn/winter: so id pair it with ankle boots, and black tights or black patterned tights, and maybe a short blazer/jacket in a darker colour (black or deep plum). Over the knee sockswould be cool aswell. Pretty much doing this with all my summer dresses! :) xxx

  11. Oooh you look very pretty! Love the detailing at the top, and I think your idea of suspender tights and a hat would be perfect! I enjoyed the outfit post :)

  12. Love this post and the dress is lovely! So pretty. I too have a big back, so I know how amazing it is when something just fits perfectly!

  13. Ah you are SUCH a beauty. I adore that on you, you look wonderful.

  14. This dress is so pretty, I love the pleats. x

  15. love the swan detailing! Gorgeous, outfit posts are a definite hit :) xxx

  16. You look lovely! I love the little swans, so cute :D
    I love the sound of this dress with suspender tights too!


  17. Absolutely beautiful dress, anything bird related and I'm hooked! I'd definitely love to see some fashion/OOTD posts :-) xxx

  18. Just entered! I think these photos are lovely and really show of the dress well, would definately be excited to see more outfit posts from you.

    For A/W I think I would style it with an oversized, slouchy, knitted cardigan and ankle boots in greys or browns.


  19. This is such a lovely, "dainty" dress - one that you wear brilliantly, by the way! There's something quite "Princess Peach" about this look - a very good thing, I assure you!
    In terms of styling: perhaps a tweed blazer with deep, chestnut colour ankle boots and knitted tights could work and may bring this more spring/summer-suited dress into the realms of autumn/winter.

    Best Wishes,


  20. very cute detailing on your dress <3 xx


  21. You look absolutely gorgeous! You should definitely post photos of your beautiful self more often please; I think they would be a nice mix in with your other posts :) Oh and you look like a right sultry screen siren in the fourth picture, off for a cold shower now! X
