The V Day outfit

The big V day is coming up very soon (to be precise it is 22 days) and the one thing a girl worries about it ‘what am I going to wear for dinner.’ For single girls it is all about going out with the girls and having some cocktails, so you can forget about the dreaded V day!!

I came across some great cheap going out dresses, which are perfect for a dinner date on Mary Jane Fashion. I find going for dinner one of the hardest things to dress up for as you don’t want to go too over the top, but then you want to show you have made an effort. I am really into collar dresses, and what is great, is that you can wear them to work, on a girls night out, shopping trip.. they are just easy to wear and they always look good.

Here are a few of my favs for a valentines day look

A black polka dot collared smock dress is an easy win for a date night

A tartan dress always goes down well!!

I LOVE the pattern on this aztec shift dress 🙂

Go for something a little different, maybe opt for a coloured playsuit

OR this sexy little number, peplum dresses are always a good choice

Which one is your fav? Be sure to check out Mary Jane Fashion.. enjoy!! x

In need of a cocktail dress?

I have been so busy over the past few weeks I have not had time to blog.. which upsets me slightly. But I couldn’t resist writing a blog post about the stunning dresses on Girl Meets Dress. I am a huge fan of the cocktail dress range.. from uber sexy to ultra sophisticated. Every girl needs a statement cocktail dress to wear on a good girly night out or on a special occasion

I first came across this site a year ago, and I remember thinking what an amazing idea it was to hire dresses to wear and then send them back. I have an awful obsession of only being able to wear a dress once on a night out (I can maybe wear it a year later) It is bad I know..but it means Girl Meets Dress is the perfect site for a girl like me!!

I thought I would put together my top 5 cocktail dresses from Girl Meets Dress.

What to wear on Valentine’s Day

Every girls needs a pretty dress for their date on Valentine’s Day. I found some total beauties in Miss Selfridge.

I am not really a Valentine’s Day type of girl, but if I was, the perfect date would be dinner at the OXO tower. I have been a few times and the view is just amazing – you can see the whole of London. The cocktails are pretty special and the food is too. They are doing a Valentine’s Day set menu, I just had a peak at it and it looks incredible, this desert sounds to die for – Chocolate plate
(marmalade and caramelia truffle, caraway and hazelnut mousse, cinnamon and coffee smoke
white chocolate fondant, blonde chocolate tart) – AMAZINGGGG!!

So (in my little world) if I was going to the OXO tower I would be wearing either of the dresses below, as I love them..

Jaquard Shift Dress

Blue Scallop Hem Lace Dress

Mini Pu Peplum Dress

Lace Insert Drape Dress

What are your plans for Valentine’s day? Girls night out?

Next Press Day SS13

I attended the SS13 Next Press day last week at the beautiful St Martins Lane Hotel and my gosh, did it make me wish summer was here already!! It was full of beautiful bikinis, summer dresses, flip flops, kimonos, basically everything that reminded me of the summer holidays!

Next always showcase their products so well at press days. I am a huge fan of their shoes – so here are a few of my favs


(the electric blue ones would go so well with a white summery dress)

I fell in love with their under wear range, such a great range of colours and designs.  It is always important for a girl to feel good in some pretty underwear, so this is a must all year round not just for summer!!

Next also have some lovely home ware products which I personally LOVE…from funky arms chairs to stylish cushions, they have everything to make your house look chic and sophisticated.

It is always important for a girl to have ‘The dress which they can wear to special occasions, work events, a girl’s night out etc. I saw this stunning dress and thought that is definitely a dress every girl must have in their wardrobe.


Yummy treats were given to us, including macaroons, sandwiches, mini cup cakes and of course delicious Bellini’s (my fav!!)

Thanks to Next for such a stunning press day and for making me want it to be summer already!

The wedding of the year!

I went to one of my best friends weddings at the weekend, I can’t quite explain how amazing it was… but it was AMAZING!!

On Friday, me and my girlfriends all flew over to Glasgow, we then got to the hotel and were told we were going to see Lionel Richie in concert, VIP and backstage…WHATTTTT!! It was an experience I won’t forget, he was amazing on stage and in person.

Saturday (the BIG day) all the bridesmaids got up at 5.45am!! We were in hair and make up for 6.15.. throughout the morning we were drinking champers and enjoying a luxury breakfast.

Finally, the time had come to get into the beautiful vintage cars to take us to the church.

I was the first to walk down the isle, so I was very nervous. The whole ceremony was just to perfection, the bride and groom looked stunning and it was extremely emotional.

We were all then driven back to the hotel and was served a beautiful meal with A LOT of wine!! The interior of the dinning room was just exquisite! We then danced the night away in the VIP area.. and the rest is history.

Here are a few pics to show what an amazing weekend it was..

In love with Maxi dresses

I have been shopping for my holidays and have come across some beautiful maxi dresses! I don’t tend to wear maxi dresses just because they kind of drown me, but I have bought one for my holiday so hopefully I won’t look too silly in it!

Here are my top 5 maxi dresses…

My number 1 maxi dress has to be this stunning one by Alice and Olivia at Oxygen Boutique. It is totally out of my budget but I can look just not touch!!

A girl can always dream… xox
