I was recently contacted by the lovely people from Fanny Crown who asked me to take part in their blogger contest! I'm delighted to say that this is my entry.
I was asked to pick a dress from their website and describe how I would style it. Due to the sheer amount of simply stunning dresses available on their website (Dresses for events such as debs, proms and lots more!) I finally chose this gorgeous dress.
I checked to see if there was a description about the dress, unfortunately there was not, so I'll use my own to describe the dress and how I would personally style it.
Firstly, I would wear this dress to literally any event, the dress is tailor made and titled ''Chic Sweetheart Mid-Long Golden Evening Dress'' which is such a pretty name in my opinion.
The dress is a mid-length nude/beige dress. From the waist down, the dress is made of a flared lace material which looks not only elegant but extremely flattering on any size. The length of the dress is very dainty, it's not too short and not too long either. I feel that the length means that you could wear this dress to any event you wanted, Communions, Confirmations, Weddings, maybe even your Debs! (Mine's next year :O!)
I particularly adore the top half of the dress. The neckline is quite subtle yet charming. The straps are also beige/nude. I love how the bodice has a sequinned finish, I find that it's quite intricate and beautifully detailed. It's obvious from the photos that a lot of care and precision is taken to make the entire dress and the materials look to be a very good quality too.
Now onto the accessories! I personally would style this beautiful dress with a pair of nude heels. At the moment there is an utterly delightful pair on Boohoo.com. I think that the shape of the platform heels would really compliment the dress.
The handbag I picked is also nude but has a simply intricate and beautifully detailed lace finish. The bag is on sale from Next and is relatively inexpensive for such a charming little handbag!
For make-up I would use a red MAC lipstick for impact and to make your face stand out in comparison to the nude/beige dress and accessories. The eye shadow of preference would be from the NAKED 2 palette and I'd use the eye shadow colours from the palette to create a sultry smokey eye, perfect for any occasion.
To have more of a ''mood board'' or 'collage' feel to the photos here, I also added some inspirations I thought of as I was choosing accessories and make up idea's. The roses I thought looked appealing and I thoroughly loved the shade of the roses. I also added a photo of a cute little bunny rabbit as I think rabbits are one of the cutest animals I've seen.
So that's how I would style the ''Chic Sweetheart Mid-Length Golden Evening Dress'' I hope you all enjoyed this blog post, I know I had a lot of fun choosing a dress along with accessories and make-up to go with the dress.
