The dress I chose from the Monroe Knows signature collection was the Amy dress in green and it is glorious! Although their signature collection is small, I was overwhelmed by the beautiful classic cuts so I had to ask my partner to help me choose and he definitely chose well. The first thing I noticed about the dress was the impeccable quality of the fabric. It's a stunning, soft, heavy Jersey which falls beautifully. I sized up as I wasn't sure what the garment would fit like but I really didn't need to! I could have easily sized down if anything. But despite the dress being slightly big (due to no fault of the brand, this was my fault by being too cautious about the sizing), it fits wonderfully. The wrap style front is a little saucy but not too much and the mid calf length of the skirt is so classy. I also love the colour - it was so nice to be offered something slightly different, colour wise by a brand! I feel that this colour is a gorgeous twist on a classic dress style.
I went with very simple hair and makeup to offset the classic styling of the dress. I felt fabulous in this dress! I cannot recommend the brand and their signature collection enough - they truly have created classic dress styles for all occasions that flatter and feel wonderful!
This dress was perfect to wear for the occasion, which was date night and included spending our second evening in the presence of the incredible Mr Gregory Porter at St David's Hall in Cardiff.
We went for dinner beforehand and my pudding was a Nutella and marshmallow Fluff brioche sandwich with pistachio icecream which was a total life changer and then we went on to the gig. As before, Gregory Porter was utterly flawless and proved that when you have a true talent that can completely captivate, all you need is your voice and your band.
Lots Of Love,
