OOTD // How I Style Midi Dresses

Another day, another outfit post. I think I’m doing quite well in attempting to mould my boyfriend into an ‘Instagram Husband’ as he snapped these pictures on Sunday afternoon in the garden. However please forgive the fact I’ve got my hair up – I was *mildly* hungover when these were taken…    The weather was absolutely gorgeous so I decided to throw on this really, really old midi dress. I love the shape and it’s really lightweight making it perfect for work or just running errands – like we did on Sunday!  Midi dress – River Island Kimono – Primark Necklace – EBay Lace up sandals – Missguided     

Golden Globes: Who wins best dressed?

The Golden Globes took place yesterday and along with the majority of my Twitter feed, the dresses have been judged and the best dressed ladies of the evening have been chosen. Having scanned through as many pictures as I can, I hereby conclude Sienna Miller, Emily Blunt, JLO and my ultimate girl crush, Emma Stone as my favourites. Nude and blush tones are a great prediction for the season ahead, whilst Emma’s trouser combo stood out in the sea of full-length gowns! Who wins your best dressed gong?

The Kardashian Effect

Khloe Kardashian Odom. I have been a fan since I first discovered KUWTK during my 3rd year of University. After spending my younger years growing up in a house with with bog standard channels 1-5 until the launch of Freeview, the trials and tribulations of the Kardashian sisters and Jenner family was alien to me. Well until Virgin TV was introduced to my life in my 3rd year student house. Ahh memories. But, back to the matter in hand. Khloe quickly became my favourite character. Loud, outspoken and a ‘takes no prisoners’ attitude my kinda woman some might say. She told the truth to her sisters and has a quick, witty personality and a loving relationships with the younger Jenner sisters, who are now hot on the heels of the three K’s. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. But, like I say Khloe has always been my favourite sister. I have been meaning to write this post for a while, but after a conversation with one of my friends whilst watching an episode of ‘Kim and Kourtney Take New York’. It was missing one thing in my opinion Mrs …

Wednesday Wish List

I know Wednesday Wish Lists are a really popular feature in the blogging world, but I never really tend to take part. Until I realised I spend the majority of my time on my laptop either catching up on tv shows or shopping. And seeing as I love shopping and clothes and bags, oh so muc, I just kinda thought I’d pull together a couple of pieces that have been chilling out in my basket, whilst I wait for payday to hurry up! Lately, River Island has been my go-to as I know I can rely on the fit when shopping online and the price is reasonable if you just want to shop for the sake of it!                                

Best of the rest: The Grammys 2013

Taylor Swift opening the show, J.LO flaunting the ‘cover it up’ rule with a thigh high split to rival Liz Hurley, the return of The Trousersnake and Adele having a pop at Chris Brown- The Grammy’s were eventful, right? Oh and the small matter of Rihanna and Chris Brown making their first public, award ceremony appearance since the ‘altercation’ 4 years ago. But, despite my life focusing on celeb goss (well not soley, but it takes up alot of my day), but anyways, lets talk dresses! 1. Katy Perry. Since her split from Russell Brand she has shunned the limelight, and has defo been hitting the gym. The hair, the dress, that cleavage. Girl, looks good. 2. Queen B. With a world tour announced, Destinys Child reunion firmly underway and the resepectible other half to Jay Z, only Beyonce could ditch the dress and look beaut in a monochrome jumpsuit. 3. She changes her hair, more often than most of us change our underwear, but with long locks and a floor length red dress to match, Rihanna brought …

Dresses: Dressing to suit your shape

This year I made a decision to only buy when I really want something and try and shop for my figure and what suits, rather than what I think looks good on the rail. I have discovered lately I just love dresses with sleeves and I think they’re super flattering and great for day and night.  Along the same thread, ASOS have really become my go-to lately as they are super great at delivery and I know I can count on my parcel arriving on time and I trust the sizings which is what you need when you are 14, but every now and again have a go at getting into a 12- and at ASOS with success! Dressing for your shape My figure is typically a pear. Hips, bum, boobs. But, it’s took me a long time to figure out what suits. After daliances with bodycon dresses which are a strictly no-go area, sleeveless dresses which don’t always flatter and shorts are just a danger zone. ASOS Top Picks This is my current wishlist of …
