Alie Street - Floral Brights For A Winters Day


I nearly didn't add this photo. It looks like someone is whispering in my ear!


Today I'm showing my second Alie Street dress. You may remember the first dress that I showed a while back here


See. She's not talking to me! I love the colours in this dress. It's lined in a similar material so it's really quite warm, plus it stops the dress from sticking to you, which is a forgiving bonus! I wish I had a red bag to pair with it, so that's the next item on my shopping list. 


It has a slight ruched fitting on the bust line and is semi fitted on the waistline. The sleeves are a perfect three-quarter length - my favourite 



I chose to pair the dress with my Navy long cardigan, but there's a riot of colours to play with. White, Red, or yellow. 
The Alie Street site has plenty of classic styles. They also have Bridal, Evening wear and Maternity wear. S please pop over for a look at what's available. This dress is currently on sale.



It was a beautiful sunny day but don't let that fool you as far as temperatures are concerned. It's freezing! We decided to visit a new coffee house at a new building complex at Kew Bridge. It won't be long before everyone has discovered this place and you can guarantee it will be packed in the summer.

  1. Really like this floral dress. I have a hard time wearing too much pattern around my face, but the pattern on you is lovely. Your hair looks terrific, as well! Love your style.

  24. Laurie, this dress looks so beautiful on you. The color looks great with your skin and hair. And the cut of it is perfect for your body. I love photo of the girl whispering in your ear, so funny. I'm glad you included it. That last picture of you walking in front of the pool is absolutely stunning! It was snowing here today and is going to be in the twenties or the rest of the week. No Sun at the moment but I'll be watching for it. Popped over to check out the dress and I love the site! Thanks for sharing it.
