Chi Chi Christyn Maxi Dress £19.99 (sale)
I’ve wanted a maxi dress from Chi Chi for a while now as they are always so beautiful, I’ve put it off as I just can’t justify the hefty price tag, I’m a short girl so have always been fully aware that I would have to spend further money having the dress taken up on top of the original price tag. When I saw the Christyn maxi dress in the sale I couldn’t resist it, I’m pretty sure it was more like £40 when I bought it but it will still almost half price so it had to be mine. I paid £20 to have it taken up as it is double layer and a tricky fabric, I had five inches off in total! The dress is now the perfect length on my 5’3 height to wear with flat shoes, my fat swollen feet don’t appreciate heels right now!
I absolutely love this dress and I hate the fact that it is getting quite snug on my almost 17 weeks pregnancy belly, I think this was probably the last time I will fit into it for a while!
The only downside for me with this dress is that the zip goes from the top down into the skirt and causes the skirt to sit a little funny on the behind. If the dress ever fits me again I am going to get the zip taken out and have this sorted out, another reason that I am glad I didn’t pay full price but would happily pay £20.
