The Alphabet of Abbie - D is for... Dresses!


...DRESSES

One thing that makes me very happy is a pretty dress. There was a time (not too long ago!) when I didn't own a single dress, I didn't know what would suit my body shape and didn't feel like I was "girly" enough to wear dresses. But after going shopping with my older sister who encouraged me to try on things that I would otherwise have walked right past, a whole new world of clothing was opened up to me. So thank you Jenny! She is The Style PA after all :)

In recent years my dress collection has grown quite a lot, I have an entire wardrobe dedicated exclusively to housing my many dresses and I'm at my happiest when wearing a pretty dress. Even when the weather is rubbish, I pull on a knitted dress and it puts me in a good mood for the day. One shop that I can always rely on to have a myriad of gorgeous dresses is JOY! My friend works in the Leeds store and whenever I go into it I fall in love with every dress in sight! So here are some of my favourite JOY! dresses currently on their website...

I never had the confidence to wear dresses a few years ago. But I urge you to go out shopping, and try on a wide range of dress styles, even ones that you think wouldn't suit you and you will find something that looks lovely without a doubt. With a bit of perserverance and patience There is a dress for everyone!

Likewise - a few years ago my wardrobe was dress devoid - now it's rammed with the things! (btw - didn't realise you and style pa were relaed - it's a small blogging world! My sister, on the other hand asked me a few days ago, 'what is this bloggy thing you're doing all about then' and looked confised when I explained. Wouldn't swap her mind you!)

Hehe! Brilliant! Yep, we are indeed related, we have very different styles and are very different in many ways but also very similar in others :)
