Hello my lovelies,
Last weekend we pottered off to Canterbury for a weekend of pretending to be at uni again, so what better occasion to debut the lovely Motel Gabby dress I received after their recent event wih Glossybox?
I must confess, as a (generous) size 12-14, when the dress arrived I was sceptical to say the least. I even debated wearing it as a top as it is just so clingy and short! I think bodycon dresses are what Motel is known for though, so I decided to suck it up (and suck it IN with some heavy-duty big knickers) and wear it to Alberrys for some girlie cocktails!

I absolutely love watching it catch the light, it's so sparkly and really put me in the Christmas mood! I don't think it's something I would wear out again until I've lost some weight though as it was constantly riding up and I felt very exposed, regardless of the opaque tights! I think I will wear it on Christmas Day with some cranberry leggings or with a skirt over the top to make it more PG-13. Despite it being out of my comfort zone I did feel rather special putting it on and it felt so glamourous as well!
All in all though it was a fab night out (with a wonderful Wetherspoons breakfast the morning after - perfect!) and I am super grateful to Motel for gifting me such a lovely dress. Now...to start the stomach crunches!
What do you think of Motel clothing?
