It doesn’t feel good to be all dressed up and nowhere to go! I miss, like everyone else, my friends, my family, going out for dinner and drinks. But I love to dress up, and I will continue to do that!
*This dress was gifted to me, but I wouldn’t show it to you if I would not wear it irl!
Welcome to the monthly edition of Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. It’s fun to collaborate with other fashion bloggers! Don’t forget to visit my blogger friends and see how they interpreted the theme of this month!
I am all dressed up and have nowhere to go!
So for this post I am showing a gorgeous dress that I received from Chambres. The dress could not be more perfect for this month’s theme. I almost never wear maxi dresses, however I do like them. Perhaps it’s because I never found a good one. Oh I just remember that I bought this one last year. And I like this one, but it’s more a dress for at home or at the beach. So I could wear this dress when we would go out for dinner or when we would have a party. But we don’t and we haven’t!
Dressing up, but for who?
So for now, and the next following months, I will wear this dress on warm summer evenings. Sitting outside in our lounge set, my view on our pool, inflatable lol, a pastel colored cocktail in my hand , in the hope that Gerben sees how good I look! Hahaha, oh a girl can dream right!
What am I wearing all dressed up?
A burnt orange satin maxi dress. Gorgeous color especially if you’re skin is already a bit sun kissed. I have styled it in a bit more casual way with blue, and a more formal outfit in black. I love the cobalt blazer on that orange!
The dresses from Chambres started out as a slip dresses for under formal dresses. But the fit was so good that they made them into lounge wear. They are not lined. That means that you really have to wear shape wear underneath. I am wearing a shape wear slip and a underskirt, but I think I better wore a under dress and no knickers…..but that’s not my cup of tea…..
But the dress is really gorgeous and the fit is Perfect! I feel very good in it, it swirls around your body! So it’s not to bad to be all dressed up and have nowhere to go!
And now let’s take a look at my fashion friends! Sonja had to step out of our group because of personal things going on in her life. We send her lots of love! But now we have space for a new member. So if you are interested in participating in our group, mail me! firstname.lastname@example.org

Oh thank you so much Susan! It was such a pleasure to work with you!
Wow! This dress is so terrific on you Nancy! It is perfection! I love it with both jackets but especially the shorter leather one – great from head to toe!
Thank you very much Kellyann!
Just sent you an email with samples of my styling and that I would love to be included in Match Made in Seven!
So excited about the challenges and possibilities! My closet is huge, and I have no where to go! I promise to bring a different element to the group!
and btw, insane orange satin dress!
I just send you a mail back Eva! Thanks!
You look stunning Nancy! I love the dress, the colour is gorgeous!
Thank you very much Emma!
That orange satin maxi dress is absolutely gorgeous and it looks fabulous on you. I love it especially worn with that electric blue blazer. It’ll be perfect for Summer evenings and perhaps you can wear it out for drinks on an Indian Summer night in September! Let’s keep on hoping, and getting dressed up, obviously! xxx
Yes let’s do so although I am a bit afraid that we won’t be able to celebrate summer at all outside our homes.
Nancy, that dress is HOT! The burnt orange looks amazing both ways, and I do love it with that cobalt blue jacket!! You are so right that you can wear it casually and not just for a dressed-up evening. I’ll bet Gerben will notice! Lol!
That dress is so glamorous! I hope you do have some fun wearing it, even if it’s around the house for awhile.
Yes it feels very good to wear it! It’s perfect for warm summer nights!
Gosh, this is nothing but stunning Nancy!! I think you need to wear that dress monthly….it boosts anyone’s mood.
Haha, thanks Jodie!
Wow! Beautiful dress! Love it!
That satin dress looks marvelous on you! Ohh, it makes me want a satin dress! I bet it is nice and cool, too. The blue blazer really works with it. I can’t wait to have somewhere to get dressed up and go either!
Thanks Carrie, have a great weekend!
Stunning! Nancy, you’re a knock out in that dress! I love both ways you’ve styled it. If Gerben doesn’t notice, I’m going to have to conclude that he’s blind.
Orange is my favorite warm color, but you don’t see that often in fashion. Lovely!
Thanks Michelle, I will tell him lol. No you don’t see orange a lot.
You look stunning in this dress Nancy! The color is incredible on you and I adore the mix of satin and leather.
Thanks, I like that mix too!
Wow! You look so beautiful in both outfits: that dress is a keeper! I love how changing the topper and shoes create 2 amazing different looks.
Thank you very much Mireille!
What a glamourous look Nancy! Ready for the red carpet!
That dress is beautiful and you look gorgeous wearing it, Nancy! Such a pretty color. I like the blue jacket contrasting with the orange color. But, the black is elegant, also. The cut of the dress is very flattering!
Thanks Debbie, I think it is such a lovely dress!
Nancy, this dress is absolutely fabulous! You are stunning, my friend, and I don’t think Gerben can miss that! I can see you sitting by your (inflatable) pool with a cocktail in hand looking all sexy in this dress for a romantic evening at home with your love! I love this dress on you so much! I kind of need to look for a satin maxi dress for myself now! Thanks for linking up.
Thanks Shelbee, I love this dress, the fit is so perfect! And the satin is so gentle for my skin!
You look absolutely stunning Nancy. Love those colors together!
This is a FABULOUS look on you Nancy!! That first one in the black jacket is SO gorgeous!! xo~Sherry
Thank you very much Sherry!
