So this blog was supposed to be scheduled for pre-Valentine’s day, however due to unforeseen circumstances with my Grandad and Alfie passing, it had to be moved. I haven’t worn this tunic dress in so long – I think the last time was when I was in Pigalle, Paris a good few years back. Anyways so I thought I would create a simple but effective outfit for those who keep it quite simple when they dress up rather than like me who goes OTT all the time!
Size: 2 – Small
Materials: 87% Polyamide, 10% Elastane, 2% Metallic yarn & 1% Cotton
I wore my blue and white tunic dress, paired with my strappy heels to give it more of an evening look. I wore silver drop earrings to finish it off
Tunic: French Connection
Sandals: Simmi Shoes
From The Website: Alison N.4 is a classic pattern reimagined. The love heart print is one of the absolute staples of the legwear and fashion world. Now it is made not only versatile and subtle, but also striking and eye catching too. This is thanks to the regular print being swapped out for a metallic fibre that captures the light beautifully.
* 20 denier
* Sheer leg

The Packaging: I gotta say I am liking their new packaging. It seems to be a little sleeker on the front, which I like. The back doesn’t go into much more detail, but gives you all the necessary info on care, sizing etc.
When you get in, I have to say I was impressed; these were folded so you get the foot and leg shaping to it, and wrapped around card to keep it intact. The first thing I noticed was how easily they slipped out my hand – they are that soft!
On The Legs: I am loving this. Giulia have seriously upped their game. In my eyes (and most others) they were known to be a really cr*p brand, but they are seriously changing their game .. and I LOVE IT!
The quality is so much better; harder to snag and catch compared to their previous models, and they have a bit of stretch in them too so they hug the legs really well.
The fit of these are true to size, and the feel is just divine. I didn’t know they did silky shiny hosiery like this, so it was a lovely surprise for me! It really helped set off my outfit, especially in the evening. I don’t know if you all can see below, but I tried to use flash so you can see that shine they have going on.
The design is just adorable; those little hearts are such a cute finishing touch and really does make them more appropriate for date night.
Simply effortless is the word!
The Toes & Ankle: I am once again impressed, as they have reinforced toes, which are a heavier denier compared to the rest of the leg. – I am hoping they are reinforced and not just a dark toe strip!
They had plenty of wiggle room to them, and they didn’t have any pressure put on them either which is great. I kept my nails short for this reason as I didn’t want to be creating holes during the evening!
Around the ankles, you can see these are a smooth fitted finish.
The Waistband: is a damn good one. I am so impressed with how well these sit around the waist and how good they hold up throughout the day too! I gotta say they are really taking me over right now!
As you can see it’s sheer all the way to the band, so you have the option to wear anything short with ease. This also means you need to keep an eye on any snags/rips as well as you don’t have the reinforcement of the boxer brief.
Go for it! I am so glad I got my hands on them, and I certainly have not been disappointed!
