Embellished Dress

Embellished dresses are perfect for the Christmas season; you probably will have noticed more of them popping up in shops. I have quite a few embellished pieces in my wardrobe, and the number of them is growing steadily. I love a little glitz and glamour, and embellished garments really do make me feel girly.

Today, I want to share one of my pieces with you. I have so many to chose from, but after much deliberation I’ve chosen…

I wore this dress for my birthday. As there’s a lot going on in the dress, I thought it was best to keep my accessories to a minimum. You might also remember my outfit from this years LFW, where I wore an embellished skirt.

 

Here are a couple of other cute embellished dresses that have caught my eye. I’m loving the glitz and glamour!

Silhouette Panel Dress

Last week, Cheryl Cole was wearing this simple yet slightly futuristic silhouette panel dress on X Factor. It’s pretty rare to find something that can compliment most body figures, but if I were to choose one item that could achieve this, it would be a silhouette panel dress. They work in the most amazing way, adding and deducting a little shape in all the right areas. Finally, a dress for all; I’ll definitely be investing in one of these soon..! I’ve seen a few in a couple of different shops, but my favourite (by a mile) has to be this leather and wool combi by Ministry of Retail (below). I’m in love with both of them. The only problem is, that I can’t decide which colour I prefer. Decisions, decisions…

Shirt Inspiration

Sunny mornings and chilly autumn evenings, we’re going to have quite a few of those over the next month or so. Confused what to wear? I suggest you opt for a shirt dress. Not too heavy, but warm enough to take you into the evening. Pairing your shirt dress with some stiletto heels and a cute clutch bag will keep your look feminine and ultra sexy. And if your shirt dress is loose fitting, never fear, simply add a waist belt to accentuate all your good bits! Here’s some inspiration!
