What can I say, sometimes a girl needs to step it up a notch and heat up date night. Especially if date night has involved an awful lot of lazy take out and dull old drive thru. So when I received this dress in the mail from new Aussie brand Harlow I knew it was going to make an appearance reeeeeally soon. It’s a sexy date night dress. Full stop.

It has this slippery feel to it that’s not only comfy to wear but it is really tactile… If that makes sense. And as far as I’m concerned anything that leads to more touching is a good thing. HA. The stars had aligned and a week or two before Liv had loaned me this fab gold belt, then Diva had a sale and I picked up this necklace. I’m not much of a gold wearer usually but I wanted to mix up the black dress combo a little.

Then I picked up these AMAZING heels from Martina and it made for a quick and easy outfit decision. I love when that happens. Insert cute Hubby with great arms, dinner somewhere nice {no paper napkins, I mean} and a quick stop by the parking lot at Woolworths and if that’s date night, I’ve had it. Now let’s check out the photos and discuss for a minute how beautifully photogenic cement can be sometimes, shall we…?

OMG, my vanity almost stopped me putting that one in. I was having a moment of back/hip fat’itis. But you know what, my body squishes and moves when I do. Especially when I cock my hip to one side in an attempt to show off the hemline of this dress including the cute side splity hem thingy. And that’s just the way it is, I’m squishy, moving on.

Didn’t I tell you outfit photos are the best for getting over yourself. Heck. People look at me from behind all the time. I’ve never once had anyone run screaming from the building. It’s strange, like hearing your voice recorded. I don’t sound like that, you say. But you do. Mostly. It’s a little distorted by the process but it’s pretty accurate. This posed photo of my butt is the same thing. Don’t you think?

*As you will see on the website, this dress is designed to be a looser fit. But I think either way works. After sitting in it for a while for dinner it had given a little but not much. I can’t imagine it would ever get much looser. I’m normally more of a 20/22 so keep that in mind if you decide to purchase.
