At the end of last year I attended a fundraising ball for EDS UK. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is a connective tissue disorder which effects pretty much everything in the suffers body. I have EDS myself, hypermobility type, which is one of the many reasons I support the charity. When you have a disability, it is so important to focus on the nice things in life, the things that make your heart beat a little faster. As a fashion lover, it was so great to see dozens of men and women, many of whom suffer with EDS draped in their finery and enjoying a meal together and having fun.
I don’t need a good cause to wear a gorgeous dress, but in this case I did, and rocked this beautiful number from Fever London. A formal gown, just perfect for a ball, a wedding or other occasion, the Ivy dress is feminine and timeless. I wore the long version in nude, though it does come in a shorter length and in navy/ink.
The length was just perfect for wheelchair wearability, and draped beautifully. Looking at this picture, the only thing that could do with changing is my terribly clashing hand support. I will have to see if I can find some that are a little more stylish.
The neckline on the dress is both beautiful and super flattering. I wore it with a statement necklace from accessorize which offset the dress perfectly.
And here with my handsome husband, who scrubs up exceptionally well. In fact he’s been looking so good on my arm lately I have a feeling he’s going to be featuring far more often in my fashion segments. Every Princess needs her Prince.
Do you have a favourite dress that makes you feel fabulous?
