Phase Eight Competition: Fashion Show Front Row

http://fashionthatpays.wordpress.com/2014/02/18/phase-eight-blog-competition-london-fashion-week-theme/

After having the opportunity of perusing the Phase Eight website, at first I found it rather difficult to choose my outfit, as there are so many options.  After an hour or so of consideration I have finally decided upon my choices.  I am so happy with these I am considering purchasing this dress for an up and coming event I am attending.  I ABSOLUTELY love it, and can see any front row guest in this outfit.  The style of the dress is something I would expect to see on the likes of Kate Moss and I love the colour.

I decided to accessorize this dress with a bolero style jacket, which is made from chiffon, giving a sheer look.

The outfit is finished off with matching shoes and bag, in gold which gives extra ‘bling’ and sophistication to the outfit, giving the perfect front row outfit for London Fashion Week!  The shoes and bag also have a touch of ‘black’ tying in to the colour of the bolero.

Don’t keep this in your CLOSET

I recently bought a royal blue dress from Closet and I have to say I absolutely love it.  For the sheer reason that the ‘cut’ of the dress is amazing and so, so flattering.  For some unknown reason I managed to fit into a size 6.  The material does have some give, so I am guessing it is just very forgiving :).  You cannot tell from the picture here but the material has a ‘waffle’ effect to the material and also is fleece lined so perfect for these horrid winter nights out.  I wore this on New Years Eve and also a few times since (but with tights instead of over the knees!) I would not normally wear over the knees to be honest, but NYE was an exception as we were going to a private ‘party’ where we were raving all night and anything you want to wear goes without you being judged by the masses 😉 (I am 33 after all).

I loved this dress so much I have been trying to track down another one in another colour but to no avail ;-( Closet if you are listening…..customer right here, please help me out (red preferably….i have the pennies just no trace of a dress).

If you are lucky enough to come across one of these skater style dresses at the very least try it on, I guarantee you it will make you feel amazing.  The best thing is, they can be dressed up or down, making them very versatile and ensuring you get your monies worth!  Well done Closet!!! Average cost of a dress is around £50 so affordable for the majority, I am sure you will agree! I am definitely a convert.
