It’s nice to talk about the type of tiers that have nothing to do with Covid and everything to do with dresses. These are happy tiers. This purple and green tiered maxi dress with the ruffle detail on the neckline is one of those low-maintenance styles that gives a lot back. By that, I mean it’s easy to wear because it’s loose around the middle, and easy to look after because it’s machine washable. Not only that, it doesn’t crease if it’s put on a hanger straight away. And nobody wants more ironing to do.
It’d look rather nice with a chunky longline cardigan and biker boots or with a denim jacket and sneakers. For now, I’m wearing it with these amazing green suedette chunky-heeled ankle boots, although wellies might have been more appropriate for the snow. Purple with green is a combination I love and that’s partly because my school uniform was those colours. Purple skirt and sweater, white shirt and a green and purple striped tie. I loved school and I have nothing but happy memories of wearing that colour combination.
The green chunky-heeled ankle boots pick out the same colour in the ditsy print of the dress. A dark green like this one is very versatile. It compliments navy, berry shades, caramel, coffee, chocolate and lighter neutrals. These will look fabulous with a green tiered maxi dress that is almost identical in style to this one. (Have a look at this blog post). Today’s dress is 6cm longer than the green one, and for reference, I’m tall, 5 ft 9 inches, 175cm.
I’ve worn my green onyx chandelier earrings on numerous occasions. They’re lovely and they work with so many different colours and different outfits.
They come in several different gem options including rose quartz, lapis lazuli and amethyst.

What a fabulous outfit. Love those green boots and the dress looks amazing on you!
Happy New Year. Hope that you all had a good Christmas in these continually odd times…. Love the tiered dress on you Lizzie. It looks much better on you than the model on the Coast page.
Oh Sue, that’s a very kind thing to say- thank you. Happy New Year to you and your family too. I have to say, that I’m already looking forward to next Christmas when hopefully things will be much more normal. Take care and stay safe. Lots of love xxx
Lizzy, I’m swooning over your outfit here! I adore the colour combination too and think you’ve accessorized it beautifully. I’ve just been given a ring that would go really well with your earrings lol!
Hope you’re well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Suzy. I’m very well thank you- are you? How are things there in The Algarve? And I love the sound of a matching ring! xxx
I’m good too thanks Lizzy! Things are pretty much all on lockdown for the next few weeks here in Portugal. Let’s hope all these tough measures everywhere will start to make a difference. Big hugs to you. Have a great Sunday!
Can I just say, Liz your opening paragraph, particularly the first two sentences, is literary gold. Utterly brilliant!
Gorgeous as ever my friend xx
Thank you Michelle. i do love puns and plays on words but it can be quite cheesy!!!! It’s a fine line! Lots of love to you and yours xxx
Such a beautiful dress with all the tiers. I love how you have styled it with those lovely boots and pretty green earrings, too. Love you photos. The snow made a great opportunity to take some new shoots. I enjoyed taking some photos in the snow too, made a nice change. It has almost rained away here now!
Hi Claire Justine. Thank you. I love the dress, it’s just so easy to wear and to style. And yes, the snow makes for a good back drop doesn’t it. I shot two more looks over the last few days but it’s completely vanished now! Take care- hope you and your family are well xxx
Your dress is gorgeous with the beautiful tiering! The green accessories are perfect and I love your snow photos!
