Denim and Studs – what’s not to like?
I’ve always loved denim dresses – unlike denim jeans, which I generally find uncomfortable, denim dresses seem to always feel good and I think they look good too!!
We are back in Wollongong for a month to attend to some business – I also have to get some reconstructive surgery following my breast cancer and mastectomy last year.. I will be glad when it’s over and I will tell you more about that in a later post!
I’ve shown you this dress styled as a jacket here https://donnadoesdresses.com/2019/08/19/how-i-wear-jeans-and-a-denim-dress-🥰🤔💪😸/
The weather was decidedly springy so I decided to get my legs out in this dress.
I love the press-stud closure of the dress which makes it super easy and fun to get in and out of!!
It’s from Australian brand, A Country Road and it is a classic A-line that is neat and feminine.
Dark, Indigo all the way …
I love the dark indigo denim on me – blue is a great colour on me – and this was no exception!!
It fit well on the waist and over the hips but was a bit tight across the bust so I undid that button and wore a camisole under it – to size up would’ve made the dress too oversized and I don’t like that!! A more flattening bra could’ve resolved this issue too… although it may actually be that I’m fairly broad across the shoulders from years of swimming every morning before school ( life in Australia ) and I still do quite a few pushups …
Tie Me Up!!
The waist tie is a good option because you can tie it at the back as I did when wearing it as a jacket, which gave it more shape, or as a loose tie or bow.
I just added my black and white ocelot print block heels, my chunky black floral choker, quartz bracelet, black sunnies and hair up in a ponytail for this look …
Oh!! And I turned up the collar for extra oomph!!
Thank you soo much for joining me in my little corner of the web!!

I didn t realise you had breast cancer! I am so sorry you had to go through that. Succes this week! I love that dress on you, it is sexy and elegant!

Yes, I had breast cancer, which is why I post lingerie photos from time to time – not for men to ogle or make other women threatened – but to promote the concept of self love and loving the body we’ve been given. The other issue is that the first reconstruction was botched so I am getting a revision by another surgeon so it’s all a bit harrowing!!
Thank you – it’s a great dress!! Thank you for your comment!
