Here on Take10 we seem to be having a string of gorgeous girly items at the moment! I'm certainly not complaining, I love this pretty floaty dress from Max C, and I have loved seeing how everyone has styled it.

Originally it had a fabric belt but I removed that and went for a vintage one instead, and some bright tights to add a pop of colour to the outfit. This is definitely an item I will be wearing again after the challenge, although all the buttons have since fallen off so I'll have to sew them back on first. And by sew them on I mean sweetly ask my mum to do it!

It's lovely, Harriet! But I am quite put off by the fact that the buttons fell off so soon.

I like the idea of the belted twirl dress paired with those colourful tights. You've added a wonderfully creative spirit to this outfit. Here's wishing you a fun weekend;-)

Love how you styled it. Sorry to hear about the buttons. :( xx

Christy said...

It always drives me nuts when buttons fall off so quickly. I bought a new winter coat this year, and at least one button fell off pretty much every time I wore it. Ugh.

That said, I love this dress (maybe it's just the ballerina in me, but I'm crazy about those swans!) and your take on it. The vibrant tights were such a great choice, as was swapping out the belt for a simple leather one.

Michelle Goldie said...

The vintage belt was a good call! Love the colour and fabric of this dress. Check out my latest post below :)
