Bonmarche approached me regarding a holiday competition they have on the go at the moment.The first prize is a holiday and shopping spree in Milan. Click HERE If you would like to join in on this, Or head over to Facebook or Twitter and using the hashtag #cantholidaywithout.
I was asked to choose some items from their HOLIDAY SHOP and I was rather surprised at the fashion items they have on offer.
First up I chose this panelled maxi dress. So easy to wear , this is non crease able so fantastic for packing in your suitcase. It's also very light in weight. I like the panel down the middle of the dress, it's very slimming, and there is a tie belt at the back for accentuating your waist
One thing, One very important thing ! For all petites out there ! This dress is sized as standard length. I'm 5'2 and this is just reaching my ankles. Normally I like my long dresses to more or less reach the floor. I took a chance on this one to wear my high heels with and I quite like the length. I will also be able to wear flats with this dress and not be tripping up !!! I thought it was important to mention this because I know how hard it is for us shorties to find the right length in clothing.....
The dress can be purchased in long length too HERE
I was also offered to choose a T shirt and shorts. I really like this T shirt that I chose, the pattern has a lovely golden shimmer to it. HERE
I chose to stay at home to take photo's, it was sunny but still really cold!
I was also able to choose a swimsuit or bikini (I find a one piece just so much more flattering at my age !) The one I chose I have to say THIS ONE is my favourite item from the collection I chose . I always dither when buying swimwear and I have to say this is cut really well and is flattering in all areas.
Do take a look at what Bonmarche have to offer, and don't forget to enter for that holiday GOOD LUCK !
