Pink to Party

I recently attended the launch of Brasserie Abode in Manchester and wore this pretty pink dress from Foxiedox. 

I predicted earlier in the year that pink was going to be the colour of the season as we saw a lot of it on the SS17 runways and in true fashion form those looks have filtered down to the high street.

SS17

Peonie, blush and pastel colours combined with the structured texture of lace create a look that is feminine and pretty and perfect for summer parties and occasions. Its also a great look for a date night as its much softer than its red counterpart (unless that is you're wanting to go all out vixen...in which case go for head to toe scarlett!).

I particularly love the combination of black and pink as its a great alternative to classic monochrome and creates a nostalgic look as it harks back to the elegant yet fun fashions of the 1960's. Who can forget Jackie Kennedy's love affair with pink!

In keeping with this theme I accessorised my dress with delicate black heels from Sophia Webster and my classic black satin clutch from Lanvin. To finish the look I wore my hair half up in a messy, slightly backcombed topknot with volumous loose curls and finished with winged eyeliner and lashes to pay homage to the classic 60's look.

I recently wore this gorgeous lace mini dress from Missguided to attend the official launch of Missguided's first fragrance Babe Power. Its a great dress for revealing a bit of flesh but sticking to the rule of if you're showcasing your legs you should keep your chest covered. Its also a really great length for a mini dress as its not too short and so extremely wearable. I also love the pale blue colour as it subtly accentuates tanned skin, however it would look equally good on fairer skin tones as the blue is soft and not too harsh.

I wore the dress with my classic Jimmy Choo Anouk shoes in silver to stick to the cool colour way of the dress and also add height and leg length. I kept my hair and make up subtle as I believe the more flesh you reveal the simpler your make up should be to avoid looking too made up. I therefore created a soft low bun with a little height at the crown and allowed front sections to fall neatly around my face to create a relaxed look.
