Race Days with Honor Gold

Faye Nude Backless Dress - Honor Gold - £65
Heels - ASOS  - £45
BraceletASOS  - £6
Hair Extensions: Tantrum Hair - Micro Rings 

Welcome Back 

Living right next to a racecourse, Race Days have to be some of my favourite days of the year! These days are just perfect for looking super chic and sophisticated with a gorgeous fascinator and glass of prosecco in hand! With Summer just around the corner and Race Days commencing all over the UK, I thought I'd team up with my fashion favourite Honor Gold, to give you some inspiration meaning you can look your very best yet!

I'm absolutely obsessed with Honor Gold's Faye Nude Backless Dress. With its lace material, cream complexion and open back it has the perfect minimal detailing being seriously sophisticated. The midi cut is subtle, classy and chic. It is the perfect dress for this season. I added black accessories including my trusty ASOS heeled sandals and fascinator to compliment the dress and complete the look. I curled my Tantrum Hair Extensions and brushed them through to create soft waves.

The best thing about this Honor Gold beauty, is that it's super versatile meaning you could take it from Race Day to Wedding to a Night Out with the girls just by changing up your accessories. Open backs are also super on trend this season, which I had absolutely love! It adds a seductive twist to any dress but still manages to keep its class and give a glamorous edge. 

I hope you've enjoyed the post, I absolutely loved styling this look!

Illuminated Canvas

Illuminated Canvas - Create your own - £60.95

Hello Beauties 

During Spring, I absolutely love to re-decorate and buy new furnishings - there is just something about this time of year! I spotted Illuminated Canvas on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their unique idea and thought one would make an gorgeous addition to my office. So I got in contact with the lovely team at Illuminated Canvas and decided to create my own design by adding my blog logo onto a canvas. A week later, the finish product arrived and I was absolutely thrilled with it, so I thought what better than to share it with you all.

Every Illuminated Canvas incorporates a hand stretched image over a sturdy wooden frame. 20 Warm white fairy lights are then popped through the canvas creating a magical 3D effect, meaning that they are such a fun and flirty addition to any home. They are so easy to use with an on/off switch on the right hand side of the frame and are also battery powered meaning no wires involved! This makes it super easy to hang or place your canvas anywhere.

Illuminated Canvas have a range of their own designs you can choose from including anything from typography, messages of Love, to Pirate ships, to Butterflies, or they can use your precious photographs or artwork to bring to life with lights. As you all know, I absolutely love anything with a personal touch and I think this would make a truly lovely gift or be ideal for a keepsake.  

I hope you've enjoyed this post. A huge thank you to the lovely Illuminated Canvas for my chic and glamorous canvas! See you in the next post.

Hello Beauties 

I hope you're all well, I've been super duper busy with my uni assignments this week but you all know how much I love a LBD, so I'm having to distract myself away to write this post hehe! I can honestly tell you that I think I've found an absolutely perfect LBD to glam up and down all year round from Lulu’s London - a gorgeous little independent online clothing boutique who were not only kind enough to send me their Amelie Dress, but also a super chic silver staple Coin Necklace. I hope you all enjoy this outfit as much as I do! 

I absolutely love this dress and guess what? Lulu's London is such an exclusive brand, you know when you head on out you'll be completely unique wearing any dress from the collection, thats gotta be the best part right?! This number has the perfect fit to any figure, its made from elastane meaning that it flatters you in all the right places, in fact I let my friend try this on who is a dress size bigger than me and she still looked flawless in it! The dress has a beautiful silky feel and is slightly ruched at the bottom adding some understated detailing. Of course I had to pair the Amelie with Lulus London's gorgeous Coin Necklace, which I'm literally obsessed with! I added my favourite ASOS heels and gave my Tantrum Hair Extensions a beachy makeover. 

I really hope you enjoyed this post! A massive thank you to Amy for shooting it for me. I better head back over to my assignments...bohooo! Until next time my lovelies!

Aftershock London - Annuli Long Sleeve Bandage Bodycon Dress

Annuli Dress: Aftershock London - £135
Shoes: ASOS  - £45
Hair Extensions: Tantrum Hair - Micro Rings  

Hello Beauties 

The 'it' dress is finally here! I posted a sneak preview of this gorgeous 'Annuli' dress, kindly sent to me by the lovely Aftershock London, on Instagram last week and I had such a great response from you all asking where to get it! I really hope you love it as much as I do and enjoy the post. 

Aftershock is a British retailer who deliver the concept of "affordable glamour" and "affordable luxury" to their customers. I'm absolutely obsessed with their new collection - it's simply stunning. As soon as I came across the 'Annuli' dress it was love at first sight, with its nude bandage and gold studs, it had my name written all over it! With super speedy delivery I found myself finally trying on this number for the first time and I couldn't wait. As this was my first bandage dress, I was actually quite surprised to find that the dress was quite heavy due to its bandage material. However as soon as it was on, it was clear to see why the bandage fabric consisting of rayon, nylon and spandex was so popular. My figure felt flawless, it supported my curves in all the right places almost like a body sliming undergarment without any discomfort at all. The fabric has ease of movement and breathes meaning that you're not worried about sucking your tummy in all the time whilst you're in the dress, could it get anymore perfect?

Well of course, yes! The nude pink colour is perfect for the upcoming season and super on trend with its chic studded gold detailing adding a unique glamorous twist. I paired the 'Annuli' with my favourite ASOS heeled sandals which were the perfect colour match and kept my hair wavy and makeup relaxed as I wanted the dress to do all the talking.

I hope you've enjoyed this post! A massive thank you to Amy for shooting it for me! My next challenge is to find the perfect Ladies Day outfit and I think I know where I'll be heading! Shop Aftershocks 'Annuli' Dress here.

As you can see from the pictures above the collection showcases a must-have exotic, glamorous design for us jet-set travellers this summer. The stand-out bikinis, swimsuits and cover ups feature intricate beadwork and embellishment in a myriad of vibrant colours and unique shapes that flatter all female curves. The SS15 collection include key designs such as plunging v neck swimsuits and full length printed kaftans. These pieces are created with meticulous attention to detail and technique which offers a one-of-a-kind beach couture.

Along with the fabulous designs the quality is also outstanding, so you'll be able to rock your bikini for many more summers to come.
