Day 13: All wrapped up.

The weather is better. Sport's Day finally took place this morning. It was abandoned last year due to rain. Abandoned the year before because it was too hot! My daughter came first in the skipping race which was cool as it was her final Sport's Day at primary school.
I won't show you what I wore to that as I dashed out after writing a feature and walking the dog.
This afternoon I am leading a PR workshop for small business owners. I need to look grown-up so I dug out another DVF dress that has been hiding in the wardrobe because I don't really know how to wear it.
The dress is reversible and so you would think versatile but the tie belt and the double layers make me look like a sack of spuds around the middle.
I have been following the style advice of Kasmira on her blog ( which details how to wear a wrap dress.

I tried my best in the 5 minutes I had.

I can not believe you have 2 DVF dresses and you claim not to know how to wear them!! They have both looked fab! I am very jealous!

Love this dress and ensemble! You look fantastic. You must definitely wear this dress more often.

I bought the dress on eBay from the States. I have worn it twice and just felt fat and frumpy.
Doing this blog and looking at other like-minded blogs has really helped. Not to mention your confidence-boosting comments. Thanks. When it comes to clothes my husband just doesn't understand me!

I love wrap dresses and DVF has some great ones. Another favorite outfit of mine, so far. Show your legs more often, girl. =)
