Our blogger of the week maria styles her stunning Julia patchwork dress…
What do you love about the dress?
The dress is perfection. Firstly, it’s unusual in comparisons to the dresses that are being put on for the festive season. This has an elegant but girly rather than sensual edge to it. The 50s cut with the wide petticoat skirt makes for a tiny waist and skinnier and longer looking legs, so it adds height and reduces a few pounds. That’s a massive plus. The other aspect that I absolutely love is the simple, yet stunning top. No specific girly pattern of sequins, which I always find a bit too much, high closed neckline for lots of elegance, but then you see the back of the dress and it’s just like BOOM! You just don’t expect that at all with this dress and that’s what I love.
What is your top styling tip for the AW12 Season?
Winter is all about layering as always. No one wants to look twice their size, right? So I’d stock up on some cosy tights, biker boots (no good wearing pretty heels when the ground is all frozen and slippery), a cute pattern jumper and a furry coat. Sticking to maroon/oxblood/burgundy colours and black & gold is definitely a good idea this season!
What do you love about blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I’ve been blogging for 2 years this month, actually! I’ve been absolutely loving it. Of course it’s sometimes a rollercoaster ride when people don’t comment or seem to like what I’m writing about – I do write with my readers in mind.

That gives me a sense of belonging
