Dresses with Sleeves – the campaign returns!

Article by Ceri Wheeldon.

Following the success of the Dresses with Sleeves campaign over the spring and summer ( I highlighted 50 dresses with sleeves over 50 days), I have been inundated with requests to find some more.

I can’t guarantee to find new dress with sleeves every single day but I will do my best!

Also, I had a lot of requests last time to have a full list of all the dresses featured, so I will compile a list and add to it daily – just so that you can review all the dresses together.

The good news is that there does appear to a broader selection to choose from at the moment- so perhaps retailers are at last listening to what women over 50  say they want to wear.

Hopefully I will be able to find some new brands to introduce everyone to – following a review of Ceme London’s dresses in the summer they have offered Fabafterfifty readers a 20% discount – see Ceme offer details here.

In the meantime I am starting the new Dresses with Sleeves campaign with a dress with an autumnal feeling to it .

The Seraphina dress from Phase Eight has flattering ruching in all the right places and the placement of the print has the effect of narrowing the waist.

A great dress to go from office to dinner – just add a pair of dramatic earrings for the evening.

The recommended price for the Seraphina dress is £99, although on the day of publishing  Phase Eight had a special offer on all dresses and so it was available at £79.20. A bargain!!

P.S. we have relaunched the groups and forums- if you have a style dilemma or want to share a picture of a special buy- there is a Style group set up just for that 🙂
