I had my birthday this week and to mark the occasion I wanted to go with the family for a meal. I also wanted to use the occasion to find a dress that showed how my confidence journey had progressed.
When the lovely people at SimplyBe let me review a few pieces for them, I immediately noticed this Anna Scholz dress as being one that stood out from the crowd. With it’s bright, bold colours and colour block design it is a world away from anything I would have previously chosen (black, black and more black) so I decided that this was the one for me.
The dress is very well made and has those little details that you get with a quality dress, such as a weight on the inside of the cowl neckline to ensure that it hangs perfectly every time. There are also pockets to the front of the dress which add a different dimension to the dress.
As you can see from the first photo, if you have a larger chest the expanse of colour at the top of the dress may be a little much, so I added a necklace and also a shrug which finished the look for me and also covered my arms.
I wore the dress for my birthday meal and I loved it. With a lot of people wearing dark and muted colours in the restaurant, I felt like a peacock strutting my plumage with the bright colours and felt confident in it.
The dress can be found here, priced at £70.00. I also wore t-bar shoes from Love Label and a shrug from Very.
