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.

    I did not like the dress much, but as I read and went down the page you won me over. It looks beautiful and I like your ideas to compliment the dress.

    Beautiful dress! I remember seeing the three you were deliberating over – I think I voted for number one but I thought at the time that this one is probably more your style. You look lovely as always!

    I, too, love a dress with a bit of stretch to it – we all need a little help from time to time ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 …

    • July 28, 2017 / 10:25 pm

      I think a different sandal or Navy courts it should be Mary. I just don't think my sandals are doing the dress justice xx

  12. July 19, 2017 / 10:11 pm

    Good to find out about a new clothing brand

  13. July 19, 2017 / 7:04 pm

    Lovely dress which fits so well. The blue does it for me and celebs choosing it too! That's pretty exciting. Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst

  14. July 19, 2017 / 3:54 pm

    All three dresses are really lovely, Laurie, and any one of them would have looked amazing on you. The beauty you picked has such a pretty print and that fit is amazing!! Love visiting your site. You always dazzle me with your incredible style!


    • July 27, 2017 / 10:00 pm

  16. July 19, 2017 / 1:27 pm

    A lovely choice of dress and I love how it fits under the bust. #bloggerclubuk

    • July 27, 2017 / 9:51 pm

      Thank you! I do think this is what makes the dress flattering. The way the dress sits and the material helps give a slimming silhouette xx

  19. July 19, 2017 / 2:29 am

    I can see why this dress came out on top! It's stunning with its colors and print and is very flattering on you!

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:22 pm

      Haha! Suzanne you hit the nail right on the head! I knew I liked this pattern for a reason! xx

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:16 pm

      Thank you Darlene. Great to see you back here xx

  20. July 18, 2017 / 9:12 pm

    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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thank you so much Janea. I kept the whole thing classic, but un-datable. Thank you for your kind words xx

  21. July 18, 2017 / 6:36 pm
