Alternative To A Little Black Dress: Over 40 Style.

Hello lovelies, thanks for stopping by again today.

Are you looking for an alternative to a little black dress?

Something not too bright, fits beautifully, very comfortable and stylish to wear?

Real style

Today I am sharing this amazing Autumn dress I have found at Bonmarché.

It is beautiful!!

If you like lace, fancy an alternative to the little black dress, then you will love this one.

To be honest, I was never a fan of plain Navy dresses before I seen this one.

I noticed it online and something drawn me in straight away.

Not sure if it was the colour, style, lace or what but as soon as I saw it, I knew this was going to be my dress.

I could not wait for it to arrive, to see if it looks as good as it did on their website.

It did, if not better.

I am really pleased with this dress and I know I will get lots of wear out of it throughout Autumn/Winter.

It feels so comfortable to wear and feels great on.

I picked a size 10 and it fits beautifully, also a little room if I go out for a meal in it.

This will be my goto dress when I am going out.

Something stylish and pretty for many occasions over the cooler months.

Something that could be dressed up with heels for a night out of dresses down with boots and bright tights for days out and shopping trips.
