Being one of life's winners

Well hello
Last month, the lovely people at Lovedrobe posted a competition on Facebook they called 'Girls Night Out'

They invited people to Like and Share this picture, and then choose one you would be spotted in and how you would accessorise it. I went for this one....

I picked this one as I thought it could be dressed up for a night out, or more casual on a day out. I loved the pattern on it as they are my favourite colours, and I especially liked the length of the sleeves. I think the pattern on this is so busy that all you would need to accessorise it would be a nice clutch or pair of heels.

So I was out shopping with my mum one day when I got a notification on Facebook that Lovedrobe had mentioned me. I had no idea what was going on, and then I realised what it was. I had won the competition! I was so excited!! I haven't won anything before, and I was so happy to have won such a beautiful dress.

Lovedrobe contacted me that day and asked for my contact details and the next day, the dress was here!

I love it! Apart from my wedding dress I wore in October last year, I haven't worn a dress in years. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have spent the majority of my adult life being ashamed of my size, not just weight but height too. But I am slowly feeling better about how I look and that I can wear what I want as long as I am comfy.
As soon as I put this on and looked in the mirror, I smiled. I felt good, and loved how I looked in the dress. I am 6"1, so it's not the longest dress on me, but I can't wait to wear it :) I really love the sleeves as they are a great length for me.

I am planning my parent's 30th Wedding Anniversary party in June, and this is what I am wearing. I can't wait!

I want to say a massive thank you to the lovely people at Lovedrobe for setting up this competition, and I planning my first purchase soon!

toodle pip!
