"You Are Looking Very Nice Today"

I was just about to add this dress to the charity pile when on a whim I threw it on.
It may have something to do with the backlog of ironing but for whatever reason I decided to wear this dress, it had very little to do with getting compliments.
I have worn this dress dozens of times and never once had a compliment - apart from kind comments from my blogging friends.
I can't quite work out why this worked today.
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was a change from my usual attire (layers, black and red) but it worked.
I still haven't figured out what is so great about this dress but I have figured that it isn't ready for the recycling pile just yet.

Dress - H and M
Boots -Clarks


  1. Fortunately you gave it a second chance. The dress is pretty and elegant and suits you so well. Particularly with these boots.

  2. Isn't it strange that you can wear things loads and then all of a sudden people notice it for what ever reason? I must admit I think the decision to keep it is a good one.

  3. Sometimes I find if I dont wear something for a while it gets a second chance - glad this is staying - it suits you! X

  4. That dress is lovely, a sexy print and a fab shape and perfect with those boots! x

  5. Sometimes that happens... something suddenly works !
    And this dress sure does work :) reminds me of the one I wore last week.

  6. Don't get rid of it, I've always loved it. Store it and bring out another time if you tire of it x

  7. I'm pleased you gave the dress another go, it's very chic - you do indeed look very nice today! xxx

  8. I'm always left pondering why people in real life react they way they do to certain pieces.
    I can see why you are debating the dress though, it needs a little something - maybe shorten the sleeves or add a belt?
    Chic on the Cheap

  9. I like the dress and yes, it is a change from what you have been wearing. While it isn't quite spring like it is lighter in feel.
