Happy Friday everyone!
House of Fraser are currently running a Style Challenge competition for the chance to win £200 of vouchers, and while I'm certainly no fashion blogger I do feel like I know what looks good even if I don't manage to be particularly stylish 24/7, so here is my entry:
On the red carpets recently we have seen a resurgence of Old Hollywood Glamour - think Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and the vintage icon that is Dita Von Teese. This look pays homage to that era by keeping lines sleek and upping the glamour-factor with a few key items of bling.
The dress, from Phase Eight, is a great figure-flattering shape which nips you in at the smallest point and skims over the hips and thighs creating a really sleek outline. The muted gold tone is enhanced by a subtle shimmer which will be picked up in the jewellery.
The Steve Madden shoes are fab-u-lous and the sparkle will look great peeping out from under the bottom of the dress as you sashay along that red carpet.
The bag from Coast adds a touch of texture to the outfit which will give the simple dress another dimension, this could also easily be given a hint of sparkle for added interest by attaching this beautiful hummingbird broach from East.
These gorgeous stud earrings bring that touch of colour up to the face for a birghtening effect and this gorgeous statement ring, also from East, adds a pop of colour which ties together the accessories nicely.
This look would look great teamed with smokey-eyes and nude lips and hair pulled back into a loose up-do á la Scarlett Johansson, perfect for all those Christmas parties and award ceremonies that will be coming up soon.
So what do you think?
