I have to admit, that at this moment, I am in the middle of a green phase. It has become my colour of choice when I want to stand out in the crowd, especially when it is the deepest emerald shade.
Green is one of those colours my grandad was always deeply suspicious of. He considered it to be an unlucky colour, and one of his favourite sayings was ‘blue and green, never be seen’, which is now funny as this is one of my favourite colour combinations. Conversely, green is my mom’s favourite colour, and with my little boy being a green eyed beauty, this is definitely a colour I love to look at and wear.
So over to the dress. Planet has yet again put together a selection of gorgeous frocks for the new season, with a range of lace dresses in multiple colours at the heart of the collection. There are bright coloured pink and blue lace versions, classic black, and more muted peach styles, but I was pulled towards the jewel colour of the emerald green.
This is a stretchy lace dress that is double layered to avoid embarrassing flashes. With a flattering v-neckline, 3/4 sleeves and a side ruched paneling, it ticks every box when it comes to be flattering for a curvy figure. Add in that gorgeous, vibrant green colour and you get a dress that could be perfect for most formal occasions, including a theatre premiere, which is what I wore the dress for.This is one of those easy to wear, comfortable dresses that I love. The stretch in the fabric means that you can easily enjoy that second dessert without it feeling too tight, and it is perfect for the theatre, or any occasion that includes a lot of sitting down, as it doesn’t keep riding up or straining too tight across the thighs. It has a concealed zip, but I could get this on and off over my head as the sizing is generous.
I teamed the dress with animal print accessories, although I would love this dress with the fabled navy blue for my grandad’s nightmare combo. Red would also be great too, as would gold for a metallic edge.
Planet have lots more pieces that I have my eyes on – here are a few more faves.
