Today's Everyday Fashion: Chi Chi London


You may recognize this dress from a recent post! It was close to being sold out, so I decided to order it and see if it would work for engagement photos (we haven't taken them yet). It's even bigger/fuller than I imagined - it felt like a pillow in the package when it arrived. It's so dramatic and formal, I'm not sure where I would feel comfortable wearing it. But for photos it's got the perfect theatrical feel and the shape is awesome. (Note: that "strap" on my shoulder is the hanger insert showing through - they definitely need to be cut out if I keep it, there's no way hide them within the sheer top. Also, I recommend going up a size. I usually order two sizes up for UK brands, but I went 3 sizes up because it was the only size left and it fits. I'm wearing the US 8, I'm usually a US 0/2.) The blue color I'm wearing is already sold out, but when I searched this brand (Chi Chi London) for similar dresses I was pleasantly surprised how many gorgeous variations they make, including plus size. I shared some favorites below. Where would you wear this dress?
