A DRESS FOR SPRING

With spring bulbs beginning to flower and the scent of hyacinths wafting through my flat, I am visualising Spring, even though it's so very cold outside.  




Since the beautiful Dior Haute Couture collection a few weeks ago, I have been longing for an elegant and feminine dress for the Spring.  I have been looking too at their ready-to-wear collection and there is a tulle evening dress with a dipped hem at the back, which Marion Cotillard has been seen wearing.  In the high street shops, there are dresses which are designed with the skirt shorter in the front.  I think this is a good idea for a petite person who wants the feel of a longer skirt.

I found this black dress at H&M in their Divided range.  The sleeveless fitted bodice is in crepe and the tulle skirt falls in soft folds above the knee at the front with a dipped hem at the back, over a short, narrow opaque underskirt.





At the moment this dress could be worn layered - over black opaque tights with ankle boots and under a jumper. In Spring it will be lovely on its own with pointed toe, kitten heel court shoes.
