Summer Dress and Sandals

Last week I was sent a new dress and pair of sandals to review from JD Williams. I’m not the skinniest of women but I have lost 55 pounds and I’m looking slimmer than I was a year ago. So I ordered a size 22 dress.

The dress is Ivory lace and from the JD Williams Summer range. Do I like it? Yes. It’s pretty and a nice material. It does look fantastic on the model online and is perfect for wearing on holiday at the beach.

Do I like the way I look in my new dress? No, not really. I have to be honest, I think the dress is more suited to someone a little slimmer than me but this is something that will look better as I lose a little more weight, especially around my waist.

I’m not going to say I love something when it’s not true. I have to write an honest review and this is honest. I did order the most amazing sandals and they are real top quality. They are made from really good materials and are so comfortable and I absolutely love these.


I got some sandals last year and sadly within a week of reviewing them, Yoda who was then a puppy attacked my new shoes and I was gutted. These sandals are really pretty and comfortable and the perfect size and so I shall be keeping them well hidden in my drawer only to be put on before I leave the house- although Yoda is no longer chewing shoes! I am not risking it with these lovely ones.


So I do like my sandals and I like the dress but would prefer it when I’m slimmer. I think most people my size might feel the same. This is the perfect dress though to wear somewhere like the beach. You never know, if my health improves I might get to the beach and be able to stroll across the sand in this dress holding my husbands hand. How romantic!
