With the Holiday Season fast approaching and my diary filling up with parties, finding the perfect black tie dress can be a struggle. I don’t like clingy dresses, or because I am small, ones that drown me, so it can be hard to find the perfect dress. I also find it very stressful with an impending time frame for an event to know where to start. It’s safe to say that online shopping is my go-to as I always like to try on items at home, with my own shoes and accessories and feel relaxed in an environment to make a decision!
When I came across this Camilla and Marc dress I KNEW it was my dress of dreams! It’s subtly sexy and sophisticated, and the movement of the dress is just beyond stunning. The sheer panel at the bottom with lace detail is super glamorous and gives the plainer top half a perfect silhouette.
I am wearing it with some simple caged black heels from Office and delicate jewellery from my brand Rosie Fortescue Jewellery. I have a black tie event approaching and a wedding in February so I know already that I am going to get great wear out of it. No better way than justifying an investment piece, knowing that I have events in mind!
When browsing the Farfetch website, there are hundreds of beautiful dresses. This Red Valentino navy knitted dress with lace detail at the bottom also caught my eye. It would be perfect for a smart dinner party or even for New Year’s Eve. Although it is figure hugging, which isn’t my usual style as such, I know that it would be really flattering as it would nip you in at the waist.
