Alie Street - Readers Choice - The Right Choice


Hi Everyone
Remember a while back in June when I talked about the Alie street press event?
I talked about three gorgeous dresses, one of which I was asked to choose? Well I after much and I say much, deliberating and help from my readers here's the dress that was chosen


alie street

The Holly dress in Porcelain Blue came out top choice! I ran a couple of poll's on Facebook and a couple of other media sites and asked everyone to choose their favourite dress from the three I had taken a photograph of. 



I fell in love with all three dresses above and just couldn't make my mind up! The Atlanta Dress on the left with its pastel shades of Pink and Blue came in a very close second. All three dresses were cooed over by the readers.You may have remembered responding yourself?




When the Holly Dress arrived it didn't disappoint either! The pattern is just so striking and vibrant. The fit is perfect. but I already knew that it would be. I wore the same design back in January in The Midnight Garden pattern.You can read about it here That dress is still available to buy.




I love the fit of these dresses, they are very forgiving! I think it's the vibrancy of the pattern that's the secret. The dress has elastane in it too which is a big helper.




I'm letting the dress do all the talking today, keeping it simple. The dress speaks all for itself and doesn't need much added. However, it could be dressed up perfectly for a wedding with other accessories. A hat for a wedding or more dressier shoes and bag.And later in the year a Navy blazer or a dressy jacket will be perfect




I've chosen my Navy sandals to wear with the dress today, but I can't help thinking that White or Navy court shoes would look better. What do you think? I still worry about the Essex girl stigma about wearing White court shoes!



The Alie street brand has been worn by many a celebrity too! This dress has been seen on tv worn by Susanna Reid from This Morning and Judy Murrey wore the dress on The Great British Menu




I wonder if Judy wore it to Wimbledon? 



A white clutch and my pearls and Silver bangle were all that was needed to finish the look. I just wanted to share the detailing at the bust area too.



So please do pop over and take a look at the Alie Street brand. And take a look at the celebrity "As worn by" gallery. I love having a nose at what they are wearing! You can't beat a classic, forever in fashion dress. I chose the dress that everyone loved most, now I'd like to hear what you think of it.

  7. You made a lovely selection with that dress! And your accessorizing is perfect. I also think that white court shoes would be another stunning choice of footwear - regardless of stereotypes. ;)

  21. Good to find out about a new clothing brand

  22. It looks gorgeous on you. Think that was my favourite. Yes, can see where you're going on shoes, maybe a navy court would match the mood of the dress, but maybe a bit too closed in and hot for summer, so you're probably bang on with sandals, and they really are gorgeous.
    I do remember the high white courts and fleckie jeans of the 80s and that look was nationwide. I personally don't have many white shoes as I always think I look like Minnie Mouse in them! Though she did have a megastar boyfriend so maybe I need to rethink ...

  30. I, too, love a dress with a bit of stretch to it - we all need a little help from time to time ;) However, I have to say - stretch or no stretch - that dress looks absolutely stunning on you! And those shoes really ground the whole look - love it :)
