Sea Mist and the Navy Dress

Saturday 12 May 2018

I say 'the navy dress' in the title because I'm certain this is now one of the best ones I own, because I love everything about it and has such a beautiful fit. I've already worn in a handful of times!

About a month ago when I was in Newcastle I wore this beautiful dress out for the day. It was a cold and rainy day which was perfect for a dress like this, the navy colour was fitting for the seaside visit too. 

This would have to be my favourite Unique Vintage dress, it's a beautiful design with an amazing fit and I have worn it a good few times since it arrived it, this is an Autumn/Winter staple already. I really love the front zip and hook at the front of the bodice for getting in and out of it, it's a subtle design detail and I think it also add to the beautiful fit of the dress. 
The skirt is very full and as you probably already know I don't wear petticoats very often, rarely even and it has beautiful volume on it's own. The sleeves are another great feature and elegant length with plenty of room for comfort and movement. I am wearing size small and the fit is just gorgeous, as you can tell I am pretty much in love with this dress, it made me feel great all day even if the rain and sea mist made my hair wild.

This weekend has been really cold, I spent the day catching up on the second season of The Handmaid's Tale and watching Netflix snuggled up in a blanket with a bit of sewing in between. I'm off to have some of the leftover stew I made last night with sweet potato mash.

  2. Super details on that dress, I like the slightly tiered skirt and zip front. This is a style I could see myself wearing. I hope it's back to sunshine for you now! X
