Sparkly things!

Standard

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:

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

Spangly dresses!

Standard

Right now I can’t get enough of sequin dresses and I’m loving all the glitter and sparkle that’s bang on trend at the moment. My previous post was about shoes but this one is dedicated to dresses. I’ve just bought a really lovely gold sequin dress and I want to share my purchase with you! So here it is:

At £55 this dress isn’t bad in terms of price. I think it’s definitely worth it, as it fits really well. I was worried it was going to be a little short but it was longer than expected. Looks great either with natural or black tights (or bare legs for the brave!) The stitching on the front down either side is really flattering and gives further shape to the dress and the wrap over front with slight ruching is flattering on the stomach area. The v-neck is perfect, not too low! I didn’t know until I got it but there are also shoulder pads which add a bit more edge to the dress. Also with no zip, there’s no worry about sequins catching. All in all I give it a 10 out of 10.

I plan to wear mine with simple black accessories because the dress gives enough of a statement on its own. Try teaming with patent courts and a black clutch for a sophisticated look.

However if you want to make the outfit even more of a statement, team it with leopard print heels. I love these ones from Office (£65)
