I love the designs from Closet. I’ve only got one dress from them, but it’s definitely my favourite dress. It looks great, has an awesome yet slightly psychedelic print, and has pockets (maybe I’m alone on this, but for me a dress dramatically increases its value if it has pockets)!

This latest design definitely caught my eye: it’s got a flattering flare shape and the print has an interesting pattern and colour combination.


I’ve had my eye on getting another Closet dress for ages, but I’m currently in-between their sizes, with neither size looking great on me. Still it’s a gorgeous dress, so I’m tempted to at least try it out.

I bought this dress last weekend and I’m so happy with how pretty it looks! It’s got a cool metallic tree print, an interesting neckline and a flattering full skirt (with pockets!). Plus it looks awesome on me, which obviously is always a good thing!


What I didn’t realise though was that I already had blogged about last year’s version of this dress! I was gutted to miss out on that dress then, but didn’t dare ordering online, cause I wasn’t sure how the fit would have been. Fingers crossed they bring out another print next year?

Time for another pretty dress! I love this one from Modcloth called Modern Fairytale; the neckline is interesting and the layered skirt looks awesome. Plus: pockets!


It’s available from Modcloth for $154.99.

Woah, I can’t believe it’s been more than 50 days since I last posted here… It’s been super busy for me: still getting to grips with my new job, having to deal with commuting to work (rather than just rolling from my bed to the couch), planning HACKED which is less than 10 days away (eek!) and on top of all that I’m also participating in a triathlon in 2 weeks time (well, not a full triathlon, only the running part of it).

I’ll try to do a longer blog post later this week with more details about what exactly I’ve been up to, but yeah there’s a good reason why I haven’t been blogging lately. I really need to get back into the habit of blogging again though; there’s so many cool things out there that I want to write about!

With the past few days being all nice and sunny, I thought my first post back should be about a nice and sunny summer dress! This Hawaiian print dress from Louche just feels like summer:


It’s available at the Joy Store for £49.

It’s such nice weather today! So sunny and warm… To be honest, I don’t really know if it’s nice weather: this post was written yesterday. It’s predicted to be nice and sunny though, so I’m being optimistic.

Whether it’s nice weather or not though, this dress looks great. And with a name like Be Outside Dress In Delft I couldn’t not write about it. It’s available for $74.99 on Modcloth.


Yay, the BAFTAs are tonight! And I’ll be there live tweeting the entire thing. For the past week I’ve been looking at evening gowns and looks, trying to prepare for tonight. I’m super happy with the dress I got (see it here); it’s so pretty and flowey!

It doesn’t stop me though from dreaming about designer dresses: if I had an unlimited budget, what dress would I get? I found these 6 dresses from Valentino, Reem Acra and Ellie Saab, which all look awesome. I’d so love to wear any one of these. My favourite one is the red Valentino, followed by the light purple Reem Acra. Which one would you wear?

I’m curious to see if any of the celebrities choose “my” dresses… they are all so gorgeous and I can come up with a number of actors that will look awesome in them!

Dress of The Day: Icona

February 8th, 2013

I’m still super nervous and stressed excited and happy that I’m going to the BAFTAs! It’s my first black tie event though, so there wasn’t anything in my wardrobe that seemed suitable for it. Solution: shopping trip! After trying on a ton of dresses and asking Twitter followers for their opinion, I finally found this awesome purple dress from Coast:


I love it! The top part looks so elegant and fits perfectly, while the skirt has three layers and is just beautiful, soft and flowy. And the purple colour makes it stand out!

The only thing I’m a bit worried about is the length; I’m already wearing high heels in that photo and I’m scared it might be dragging a bit too much on the floor. I don’t have time though to get it altered, so I guess I’ll just have to live with it and have my fingers crossed that I don’t blunder, trip and make a fool of myself.

Here’s how the dress looks on a proper model (see how long the dress is in that photo?):


Despite the length, I’m so happy I found this dress. I’ve got a pair of champagne coloured heels and a champagne coloured clutch that I think wil go nicely with it. Now I still need to decide on jewellery, hair and makeup. I think I have a couple of necklaces that could work with that neckline, otherwise I’ve got a pair of shiny earrings. My hair is thick and sleek and usually tricky to work with, so I think I need to wear it down. For makeup I think a champagne/purple smokey eye might work and a my-lips-but-better lipstick…

What do you think of the dress? Any tips or suggestions for hair and makeup?

I love the combination of black and yellow. It might be a little bit too bumblebee if done wrong, but when done right I think it can look awesome. I love this dress from Karen Millen combining yellow, black and white (£110):


Another new dress from Karen Millen is this black and white pencil dress (£175):


Don’t you think that would look great with a pair of bright yellow pumps?

I normally don’t like floral patterns, but today’s dress has one that is abstract enough for me to really like it. I love the elegant cut of the dress and the painted feel of the flowers. You can get it for £65 at Joy.


Monochrome Cat Print Cowl Neck Dress. That’s quite a handful to say. I’m still looking for a nice wintery dress and this cat print is so adorable!

It’s available at New Look for £25.
