Friday Frock O’clock


Coast Thalia dress – £250

This weeks dress is a fantasy dress. Pretty as a picture and sparkly enough to make a little girl want to play dress up, I totally fell in love with it. I thought it might be the solution to some events I have coming up in the next few months but unfortunately due to my larger than previous bust, it’s less than flattering. That along with the price tag means it’s a fantasy item for this season, but I still love looking at it…

Have you seen anything recently that is out of budget or not as good on you as it is on the hanger? Do share – make me feel better! 😉

Triple Temptation: Cut out cute

*Apologies for the delay with today’s post folks! Unfortunately WordPress as a platform has been attacked by a large botnet (I know, it’s greek to me too!) recently and as a result there has been some disturbance to some sites. I’m just letting you know in case you notice problems elsewhere on the web today or in the coming days. For now, on with Friday Frock!

Wednesday saw me dashing from work straight down to London for the launch of Annabel’s book, Style Me Vintage Weddings then meeting Rachie, Rachel and Gemma yesterday for a long overdue catch up. As a result today’s frock(s) come in the form of Triple Temptation and not one, but three daring styles. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think today readers!


Cut out Sundress, £36 // Crop Top midi body con dress £29 // Limited Edition strappy dress, all TOPSHOP

When I was growing up, I remember looking down my nose at girls who were daring enough to bare their mid-riff. It was the nineties but that didn’t make it ok in my book 😉

Cut outs have been making a slow come back in recent years, first for glamour (and still reminiscent of my teenage opinions) and now for cool. Somehow the look has transitioned to edgy in a single season and of course depending on what you’re baring, it can be sexy too, (shoulders, I’m looking at you.)

I’m not sure if it’s because it’s the high midriff that’s generally the subject of exposure and there’s not a belly button in sight that these seem suddenly acceptable. It’s a brave look and needs suitably brave accessorising (I’m thinking graphic or geometric block colour and brights or metallics) but come warmer weather, or holiday time, I might just take the leap.

Are you game?

Spotted: Victoria by Victoria Beckham

I am somewhat partial to a dress, and I’m also a massive fan of Victoria Beckham’s now established transition from pop superstar to incredibly impressive fashion designer. Even better, her designs are seen on so many celebrities and although some of you might be surprised at this, look equally good on curvier ladies as women with a similarly petite frame to Mrs Beckham herself.

So it was with great interest that I heard last year that she was bringing out a diffusion line of, you guessed it, dresses. Aimed at a more accessible price point depending on how you look at it of £375-995, which is substantially less than her main line which runs in to the ££££’s.

If you’re not familiar with her usual style Victoria is famous for impeccably cut sheath dresses for seriously upmarket chic. The new collection is a departure from her usual in the biggest way, shorter, girlier, and more fun. Apparently, VB was inspired by Emily the Strange, a cultural point of reference that has totally passed me by, but the cute cat and moon prints aren’t lost on me at all.

I’m seriously in love. And whilst most of us aren’t lucky enough to be able to afford dresses like this for everyday, I think if you’re looking for a special outfit for say a wedding, a milestone birthday or event, there are some beautiful examples here that still retain a great deal of style quirk and statement appeal whilst remaining chic and stylish.

Bravo Victoria.

See more on the Victoria Beckham website… the dresses above are just my picks.

What are your thoughts readers? Do you like the collection?
