Romancing in Ruffles

Dress: River Island
Bangles: Monsoon

I was recently sent this beautiful dress by River Island. I'm absolutely loving wine reds and burgundys this A/W (my wardrobe is quickly becoming full to the brim with berry tones) add to that the floatiness, ruffles and flowers and you've got yourself a gorgeous dress for the party season! This summer saw me reignite my love for maxi dresses, and I love how I feel like a princess going to a ball when I wear this. The skirt is so floaty and pretty, different to any dress I own. The flowers are detachable but I really like them, I think they give the dress a really romantic/midsummer kind of feel. I can see me wearing this with my hair curled and to the side, to show off the flower detailing. I wish I had a ball or something to go to, this dress definitely deserves a grand outing! 
River Island are currently running a competition on their Facebook page called 'Postcards from the Past', which gives you the chance to win nine items from their 'Hustle' trend, which focuses on 70s inspired clothing, My dress is included in the 'Hustle' trend, along with loads of other really glam pieces. Definitely worth a look if you're a fan of River Island/70s-inspired fashion! 

What do you think to my dress? Have you picked out your party frock yet?
