Just after Easter I am going to a friends wedding and my thoughts have already turned to what I’m going to wear. Usually I love occasion wear shopping but this year I’m just not finding anything that I have fallen in love with. After a day scouring the shops and a bit of online hunting however I have come up with two options. For a bit of Friday fun I thought I’d put together two whole outfits using the dress as the key item and let you guys vote on your favourites. I’m pretty torn it has to be said.
This options gets points for versatility. It’s a slightly more casual dress style so has lots of potential for re-wearing during the summer months plus the accessories are absolutely killer. I LOVE the Caroline Issa for LK Bennett collection and think they would become wardrobe staples for many a year to come.
Outfit two is on-trend (monochrome), on budget (Dress + shoes = £115) and without doubt would be super flattering with that panelled lace detail. It’s a much more glamorous and elegant look with a bit of a modern twist.
So ladies, cast your votes… which is your favourite look?
Take it from me, this mornings Must-have is practically an essential. It looks about 5x as expensive as it actually is and is the kind of thing you will have for a very long time, I hesitate to say, maybe even forever.
In my opinion, you need only 2 evening bags in your wardrobe. A great black one that has a little detail to make it stand out but will basically go with anything, whatever the season or style. The other is a fabulous statement bag that will dress up any outfit, go with everything because it is so versatile and have everyone asking you where you got it. This is that bag.
The pansy bag is of course the object of my lust today, but when I found it I was so stunned by the rest of the selection at Accessorize I had to include more. The bags in there are incredible right now, the embroidery, the beading the gemstones, just out of this world. And the prices are equally astounding. If for whatever reason you want to detract from your outfit or yourself but have events to go to, then this is your answer. You’ll always fit your bag 🙂
