I’ve always loved wearing blue and in particular this striking shade of blue (or purple if you’re my husband). We all have a colour that makes us feel good and brings out our best features and this colour always catches my eye when I’m looking for new outfits.

This plunge dress from Cari’s Closet is a real statement piece.

The asymmetrical hem makes this dress more unusual and creates a flattering silhouette.

I really love the cut of the dress and although it’s short at the front, it’s a decent length at the back, which is always my main worry when choosing shorter dresses.

As it’s a plunge dress at the front, the high neckline and cut out sleeves works well.

It’s actually not a style that I would ordinarily opt for, as I wasn’t sure that the fit of the dress would suit my figure, thinking that it would be more ‘bodycon’ in it’s style. Although it appears to look fairly fitted I think that the draped section of the skirt makes my tummy look a lot more svelte! So although I’m perhaps flashing a little more thigh that I might normally do, it’s ok as the dress feels like a good fit for me.

It’s the perfect evening dress and also one that I have earmarked for taking on holiday, teamed up with some metallic sandals and accessories.

Nb. I was kindly sent this dress from Cari’s Closet for the purpose of this post, but all views and opinions remain entirely my own.
