Something Pretty

Nothing inspires you to dress up more than a pretty new frock! I wanted to share this gorgeous dress with you today, it was very kindly gifted to me by the lovely Petra from AVA. I received the package in the post on the day after my birthday, which was also the day I found out about my thyroid tumour, so to say it arrived at the right time is an understatement, it seriously made my day! I’ve never actually met Petra in person, but she clearly knows me well, because this dress just screams HANNAH. The beautiful floral print, the fantastic vintage-inspired style and the seriously cool neckline. I’m totally in love with it.

I wore this outfit to a work function on Friday night. Petra designs clothes for the woman on the go, and this dress was perfect for a networking event. It has two massive pockets hidden in the pleats which easily fit my phone and business cards, so I could wonder around with free hands ready to snatch passing canap├ęs and network my butt off.
Thanks for the fab frock AVA, it certainly makes dressing up fun when you have something as lovely as this to wear!

  1. Such a gorgeous dress! And yay for pockets!

  2. I get so excited when I find pockets in a dress!

    1. ME TOO! Sometimes I find them in dresses I've owned for ages and didn't even know about... surprise pockets! xx
