Yellow Haze

You know how it is. You have a dress that you love, but there's one thing that keeps you from wearing it - this was that dress for me. I bought it on sale from ASOS about two years ago but the thing that held me back was the top half.

To be blunt, I have a rather large bust and halter dresses and tops can be quite difficult to manage, so I left it unworn at the back of my wardrobe; but while having a bit of a cleanup from moving, I decided to try it again. I still loved it, but couldn't get over how my bosom (which had increased in size since buying the dress) all but spilt out of it! I was going to add it to my 'to sell' pile, but then I thought 'what if I use the belt to give myself a little more modesty?' I simply used the belt to cover my bust and adjusted the belt to accommodate the halter-top - a new dress was born!
Dress: ASOS^
Cardigan: South (via Very)^
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins
I now can't get over how much I love the new and improved look, and intend to sew the belt across the bust so I don't have to fiddle with it every time I want to wear it.

The dress is so floaty and gorgeous. It's triple layered with a nude base which works so well with the yellow and green pattern. The length is perfect and the material is incredibly light - and yes, you do need to watch out for that wind! I paired it with a simple cardigan and the cutest Dorothy Perkins sandals - the perfect Summer outfit.
It just goes to show that with a little experimenting, something that never worked could actually turn out to be just wonderful.

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
