Wedding season with Phase Eight

This colour…  bright, hot, stop you in your tracks red…  so much love for this colour.

I always love Phase Eight for their occasionwear and if you’ve ever watched my instagram stories from the fitting rooms in the House of Fraser store then you probably know that they are the fitting rooms to put all others to shame – think brick walls and high ceilings and filament light bulbs…  My advice?  Book yourself a complimentary stylist appointment and let them do the job of guiding you through the collection, selecting the best styles for the occasion and to suit your body shape while you take relax (and instagram story).

Turns out this swing dress was my match made in heaven, not for the colour alone but also for the forgiving shape – even with le bump the movement is amazing when you walk or dance (yep, just picture a 7 month pregnant lady road-testing dance moves in occasionwear in the University grounds – oh gosh, I just saw a future flash of a ‘mum, you’re sooooo embarassing’ moment).  And one more thing – it has pockets.  I don’t think at this stage in our relationship we need to go into how good I feel about dresses with pockets…
