I’ve mentioned womenswear brand Cecily before. They specialise in designing and creating smart, tailored dresses for work and occasion wear.
It wasn’t until I tried the dresses that I realised just how beautiful they are and perfect for a special occasion such as Christmas work lunch or your Christmas day dress.
I ordered the Caroline dress in Navy and the Helen dress in Black. Both dresses looked amazing both made of a weighty crepe fabric and fully lined in sumptuous purple silk.
I tried Helen first, all full skirted floatiness, I rarely go for a full skirt because I think it makes me look a little frumpy, but with its chic keyhole detail and velvet ribbon the dress cuts a fine line between super sexy and demure. I wore the wrong shoes for the shoot. I should have gone for boots, I wore boots with it to an evening event later that day along with a touch of fur and was transformed, I’d become Lara from Dr Zhivago. I felt empowered and almost did a little Russian jig, it looked so good!
Then I tried the Caroline dress and Wow! What a frock, with its slender cut and voluptuous sleeves this dress, oozes chic style, I had become stately, regal even! I was Michelle Obama meeting the queen all curtsey’s and diplomacy, I was a goodwill ambassador, this dress could help peacekeeping in the Middle East, hell this dress could solve poverty and world peace!
Thoughtfully designed and beautifully made I’ll watching the Queens speech in Cecily this year!
