Dress Shopping ...

Morning :)
Happy new week to you all! As I mentioned before I have two upcoming events which require a dress for each. Sarah has confirmation in early March so I need to get a dress sorted for that soon. Weather could be a bit dodgy so I'm looking for a style to be worn with blazer or cardi and I can shed layers should the sun decide to blast from the heavens! Definitely wishful thinking on my part!! Here are a couple of styles I'm leaning towards ...




 I saw this dress last week in Cos in BT 2 Dundrum and it looked lovely on the mannequin styled with a toning belt. I think it could work well with a blazer, heels and oversized clutch. It is made of 100% silk so it should fit well.


I am mad about this one also that I came across on Flannels. It is by my favourite designer Malene Birger  and reduced in price so it would be a great buy ... just hard to know if that cream colour would actually look as good in reality. Again I think it could work with a smart blazer and nice clutch.


Lastly Coast are one of my favourite stores for occasion dresses.... love the simplicity and colour of this Mairead blue dress.

I will keep looking and have another shopping trip planned this week, so I'm hoping to get time to actually try on a few styles.

  3. Definitely the second dress. It's a classic shape and you can never go wrong with black and white. I think it suits a blazer or cardi best too.

    Happy Shopping!

  12. Coast has just come here to Bloomingdales and they have lovely things for good prices. That blue one is really flattering

  13. They all look lovely - hard to choose! You'd need to try on the Cos one as their pics are always so bad. But it's a gorgeous colour. I guess the best is the one that you think you'd get most wear out of. Good luck!

  23. Hi are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and
    set up my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
