HOW TO LOOK FABULOUS THIS WEDDING SEASON I THE SASSY SLIP DRESS | STYLE NO.1


Wedding Summer Season is finally here Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh! And after being a part of my best friends wedding last year (omg her dress! Let's not talk about my maid of honour dramatic speech hahaha) and with another bestie getting married in July, and seeing a very close member of my immediate family say ‘I do’ this May. My love for all things weddings has truly grown. I believe and understand the magical celebration now (only taken many years). And I recently gushed about weddings on insta with 'To mark a celebration of love can only be a beautiful thing and to be asked to share their moment is an absolute blessing. I live to love and adore seeing happiness in others'. I think what I meant is the true essence of weddings simply come down to - LOVE.


So with all the admiration for weddings in mind, I’ll be sharing a selection of 'Wedding Guest Looks' I think will look super fabulous on you this year. Kicking off with The Satin Slip Dress. I wore this dusty pink look to the May wedding (here) and so many people asked where the dress was from. And I honestly think Zara have really pushed all the glam out with their high street occasional summer collection (& all at a affordable price). I mean who doesn’t love a fashion bargain, especially when you have a few occasions to attend to (them guest looks can add up). This design will hopefully make you instantly feel elegant, confident and dance floor free (thanks to the drape movement style) all at the same time.

DETAILS - Due to the demure sweet texture of the dress I wanted to make my makeup look strong and dramatic by adding a striking red lip. Also adding additional glam with these gold oversized fierce earrings and bold retro white sunglasses. The footwear I kept quite simple with a black two strap gold heel. These no faff versatile heels are literally worn throughout all seasons, as they can conveniently go with the majority of the wardrobe (definitely recommend adding this particular style to your shoe collection as they've lasted years). The snakeskin clutch is an original vintage piece from the 70’s that finishes off the overall wedding look perfectly.


And that’s it. Hair clips are a great way of adding super sparkly detail to your summer hair, hunt for a funky slogan to help elevate your overall fabulous look. The dress is quite easy to throw accessories around so I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun summer guest styling. X

FIERCE FASHION WISHLIST





Nine fresh new pieces that will instantly revive your spring to summer wardrobe this year. 1\ Satin Slinky Dresses are vastly becoming a new fashion obsession of late. As last weekend I wore this one at a family wedding, honestly leaving me feeling fabulous throughout the entire day that I now want one in every single colour. A design that creates such a beautiful romantic female silhouette, yet so simple. This particular golden yellow shade can look magical against the shimmering sunlight. 2\ Denim Cut Off Shorts are practically your best bet if the London weather predictions are correct (today I can confirm is sweating hottttt). And classic Levi's shorts will forever be a great S/S timelesss wardrobe staple (just need to remember to prep me old legs first). 3\ Snake Skin Sandals - After seeing Solange (goddess) all snake skinned out at the Met Gala this week in a beautiful one piece (inc thigh high boots), these little straps beauties really do need to be mine. You can see the style vision of the snake skin detail looking all fierce against vintage light denim (for a day summer look) or with a gorgeous evening summery dress. Making your night look extra special (I badly fiercely need these). 4\ Adidas Gazelle 1991 updated originals. When a shoe can be created in the 90's but feel so new and fresh now....then that's.....Fashion Everything!! I tried this exact style on recently but opted for a classic converse hi top black pair instead...BUT I'm 99.9% sure I'm going back for these. 5\ Clear Perspex Shoes are highly trendy at the moment (I think Kim K started the love for them a few years ago), and I personally love how futuristic and minimal the designs can appear. If your after - cool - understated - with a hint of detail? Then these are for you (minus perspex sticking to your skin). The block heel is also giving off plenty of 70's vibes n all! 6\ U Ring Orange Bikini Top - Perfect for the sandy beach or laying besides the holiday sunny pool. I'd style the bright bikini top with the cut off shorts, add a vintage kimono and some easy slip on thong flip flops - and you're ready to go (briefs are also available to complete the set). 7/ Perspex Hand Bag - So the futuristic perspex look can also be formed in to a ladies quirky handbag. I really like the faux croc leather effect detail on this particular piece (that keeps appearing all over my insta feed), and the inner bag is ultra versatile as it's detachable too. Also how fierce is that striking strong square bag handle (yassss!). 8/ Veja Trainers are designed with the combination of natural rubber, leather and mesh made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Veja is an ethical eco friendly brand, which is growing super super popular at the moment. The Duchess Megan Markle has been seen wearing them and a whole host of other inspirational women (props for how low key Meg's style is). I'm yet to try them on and heard that they're actually quite hard to get hold of with a lot of places selling out. So if you do find these in London....Keep me posted. Lastly - 9/ Tortoise Square Frames - So I know smaller frames are the eyewear thang at the mo, but I still have the bigger the better style mentality when it comes to summer shades. I'm not sure if the granny in me just likes the face to be super over protected from the uv rays. Or the 70's dramatic diva in me likes to feel as seventies as style possible. I basically love the look and no other sunglasses shape will ever do! I actually broke my pair of vintage round tortoise shades recently so these can replace them beautifully. If you like dramatic eye wear (like moi) these will truly look perfection on you. 

Happy Shopping
