Another sequin dress = another outfit that screams festive! Missguided has killed it this season with so many dresses, I could have opened about three hundred tabs. Do you do that, open up new tabs with things that catch your eye when online shopping? I then eliminate items for synthetic fabrics, stiff seams on smooth-fit silhouettes, and colours that may be see-through. When buying things I always contemplate how the fabric will look, as a cotton fabric does wonders over viscose or polyester. This is why I'm always cautious of Missguided, but this season I have found so many gems.
The dress I chose to invest in was this sequin mini, and quite the dress it is. I love the selection of plunge, lace and embellished playsuits but I would never choose shorts for myself. I'm a dress girl! And this one was less than £40 (I managed to hunt down a discount on top of that too) and had so many pretty features, I wanted to hang it on my wall as a decoration.
I've seen this panelled mesh designer dupe on a few different styles but the light sequin overlay of the dress give it a smooth finish that reflects the light in all the right places. The colour is a beautiful gunmetal gold which is perfect for fellow redheads. As for the mesh, its a very fine transparent colour so sits nicely against any skin tone and gives that fantastic backless illusion. A dress of party perfection! It is insanely short like most online fast-fashion stores seem to offer, but during Christmas you can stand a little more poised like the fairy on top of the tree, possibly standing by some mistletoe!
