Sparkly things!


So I got an email from A Wear today and there was a lovely embellished top which inspired me to write this post about pretty sparkly tops!

So here’s the top from AWear that caught my eye £50. So pretty and the scalloped edge is very on-trend.


Topshop as usual also has some lovely embellished pieces:

Sequin tees (left, £50 right £48)

And for those looking for more decadence how about this open-back sequin bodycon dress for £200.

For more subtle embellishment this top from River Island is lovely (£22)

The bodycon trend


The word bodycon is enough to get me reaching for my holding-in knickers and rushing to join the nearest gym. Why are many of the nice dresses out there so tight?? I guess they provide a motivation to lose a few pounds, which I’ve been meaning to do anyway. Only working 2 days a week means I find myself sitting on my bum for a lot of the day and I’ve become pretty lazy!

But here we are, these are some of my favourite bodycon dresses:

Halle Bodycon Bandage Dress. Missguided, £29.99


Navy Lace Bodycon Dress. River Island, £32


Sherry Dress in Charcoal, Black and Grey. Motel Rocks, £42


Pixie Sequin Flame Mesh Dress. Lipsy, £65. Pixie’s range at Lipsy is great, I really recommend it for party pieces like this one.


House of Dereon Lace Top Mini Dress. Lipsy, £75

From Beyonce’s clothing range, this LBD is simple but the lace detail provides edginess.


Find more of her collection at Selfridges:


At £19.99 this dress is a steal. Get yours now from H&M!


Rosie Ruched Side Bodycon Long Sleeve Dress

Rosie Ruched Side Bodycon Long Sleeve Dress. Boohoo.com £20


Getting a bit carried away now, but there are so many to choose from. Basically if you’re looking for lower priced dresses try missguided.com- I’ve ordered a couple of times from here and the dresses are pretty good. H&M is always a winner too.

For those of you looking for something more special, Lipsy is great for party dresses and ASOS has loads of different brands and styles.

Happy shopping!
