With Valentines day upon us I thought, why not treat myself to a fancy new dress and make myself feel fabulous? I spotted this lovely number in Zara and just had to have it. I'm so in love with the fit, shape and style. It gives me those totally retro vibes with the velvet and big buttons. It's just a dress unlike any I've had before, so it feels really special.


I don't think I've ever felt very sexy. I think I'm a little bit afraid. I think the idea that someone could like me or find me 'sexy' has always been so bizarre and not true in my mind, but there's something about this dress, despite it's straight-down, not exactly figure-hugging fit, that makes me feel so good about myself!

I mean, my version of 'sexy' could be completely different to yours, it probably is given the fact that this dress doesn't exactly scream 'sex appeal', but it makes me feel good and that's all that really matters.

What I'm trying to say is, everyone is 'sexy' in their own way and everyone has their own pieces of clothing they feel fabulous in. For me, it's a dress like this that makes me feel fun, retro and sassy. I think there's this misconception that 'sexy' means certain things, like wearing certain clothes or doing certain things, but I think being confident in yourself is this most important thing.
