You know those days where you probably aren't doing a fat lot, but you need to make yourself feel amazing regardless? Well today I've had one of those.
I'm a bit skint as pay day is literally within sniffing distance, so this weekend is a quiet one for me, but a perfect excuse to play dress up in my new AX Paris dress! YAY!
When AX Paris contacted me not too long ago and asked if I'd like to review some of their items, I think I mentioned this in my last post about them, but I was dubious. Their Curve range only goes up to a UK size 26 which is technically too small for me. I explained this to them but they were great and really urged me to try them and let me choose items I thought may work.
Last month I chose a lovely textured cardigan which I was really impressed with, this month I thought I would brave one of their dresses. I read through the item descriptions and in the end I went for a pretty little paisley number, it boasted an elasticated waist and a skater-esque cut I thought I may get away with so I asked if I could give it a chance...
When it arrived I opened the package up warily thinking 'this is never going to fit', but I was not just pleasantly surprised but thrilled! The actual material of the dress isn't stretchy, it's a lined chiffon number but It fits me really well! Plenty of room in the bust for my ample bosom, a stretchy elasticated waist band for ease of fit and a lovely chiffon floaty skirt. Oh pockets!!!! This dress has little pockets! It's a little bit sad that I get all excited about something as daft as having pockets but they're a luxury!
Anyway, this is how it all looked...
Miss Difusa Tights
Primark Swallow Necklace
Paisley Stud Print Chiffon Dress - AX Paris Curve UK Size 26
Paisley Tights - Miss Difusa

Burgundy Slippers - New Look
What d'ya think? I'm also really looking forward to glamming this dress up with heels and lots of bling for a night out! Perfect versatile little number!
The moral of this story? Give it a try! You never know, it just may work for you! I'm looking forward to trying a few more pieces from them and absolutely can't wait to show them off to you!
