Good morning everyone, it’s not long now until Valentines Day. So I thought I would start a little earlier and do a few looks leading up to the day. First up is this gorgeous green maxi dress from Lipsy London. My intention here is to show you all a variety of different looks that are all viable for the day and hopefully give you all some inspiration to take away should you choose to!
Right lets get straight into it and start with the green maxi dress from Lipsy London. Before I delve into the details regarding the dress let me just let you know how I happen to come across this little gem. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of Lipsy London party wear collection in Dubai at the Nakheel Mall. So I arrived at around 6.00pm and was greeted by the collection manager who gave me the low down on the collection. This party wear collection is a collaboration with Abbey Clancy. For those of you who don’t know who she is, well she is a model and T.V personality in U.K.
After looking through all the fabulous pieces in the store, I got to see them come down the runway. I knew which pieces I wanted and after getting a drink and some nibbles, I tried on some of the pieces and ended up picking this beautiful dress and a jumpsuit. These were very kindly gifted to me and even if they weren’t I would have still bought them. The dress comes in this wrap over style in a v-neck. Love the long sleeves with the elasticated wrist. The fit is amazing and I adore how it makes me feel when I wear it!
LEOPARD PRINT SHOES
When it came to styling this dress, I opted to go with this pair of leopard print shoes from Steve Madden. I initially tried on a few more shoes but decided to go with this pair. The leopard print and gold works really well with green and goes perfectly with my dress. They are just gorgeous and I am so glad I purchased them, spoiler alert, get ready to see them on repeat! You will for sure see me incorporating them into as many of my upcoming outfits as possible. Can you blame me?
Next and on to my bag of choice which is this glitzy number from Karen Millen. I chose this bag as I wanted to carry on with gold theme from the shoes. Another reason is to add some glitz to the look and if your like me and are not that into shimmery dresses as much then the best way to do that is through your accessories. The bag is just the perfect size for all my essentials. Whether it be for the day or for the night.
Finally for the finishing touches, first off I am wearing my Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme Intense Matt Lip Colour in the shade 116 extreme. This is such a gorgeous red lipstick which suits my skin tone perfectly. It is an elegant and sophisticated lipstick with an extremely matt second-skin finish. It does not leave my lips dry, so if you are someone who doesn’t like to wear matt lipsticks because of that reason I would say that this lipstick truly doesn’t. Finishing off my ensemble I grabbed my Le Specs sunglasses in the style Rapture. Of course for a night out I would leave out the sunglasses. Voila and there you have it, look number one all sorted for Valentines!
