Max C London

THANK YOU to the lovely Gem Fatale!! I recently won one of her Third Year Bloggiversary giveaway week prizes! She ran the most amazing week of giving away a different prize each day, including a free Wah Nails manicure, Bertie Boots, Me and Zena jewellery, Tabio footwear (amazing!), a No 7 range and two Max C London dresses! I've been so very lucky to be one of three people to win two Max C London dresses as pictured above.

(I hadn't realised the postman had left them next door with my neighbours, so was thoroughly excited to open the parcel when I got home from London yesterday evening.)

The first is a floral skater dress, I've never been sure if I can really pull off light colour dresses as I'm rather large in the derriere, however this dress is the perfect shape for me, fitted in the top and flaring out from the waist. (A good hip hider) It's super soft and a made of a much thicker cotton jersey than I thought, making it ideal for the colder weather - I can't wait to team it with thick tights, chunky boots and a big cardigan.

The second is a rather lovely LBD. It has a great 1950's prom dress feel to it! So again, a massive thank to Gem, I can't wait to wear them! If you haven't already, make sure you take a look at Gem Fatale's blog.

I hadn't really been aware of the MaxC London brand until my recent foray into the blogging community and having won these dresses, I felt it was about time to take a better look. The above two dresses are my favourite on their website, I've seen the rose print dress featured on numerous blogs. The floral pattern is just so lovely, the subtle colours ideal for Autumn and again, like my skater dress, a very flattering shape. The stripe collar dress is for want of a better word, so 'cute'! I think it would look great teamed with a blazer for an interview. (Yes. I'm still hoping someone will eventually want to interview me.) Again, it's not a colour I naturally lean towards and yet I find the dress utterly appealing.
