LWD-Angelic summer dressing


A trend that i am loving at the moment is the LWD or Little White Dress. Unlike its darker counterpart, it can be worn both day and night and it feels more summery!

I'm clearly not the only one.....

*She looks so stunning, but i am a bit biased because i have always loved J-Lo. But seriously, dont you guys agree?*

So, the dresses i like the most are.....

This Dress is from House Of Frazer, the sleeves are a little dressy, but i think its so pretty and the Lace adds a super girly twist which will make it fun for picnic!

This Grecian Drape Dress from River Island (Online) is definatly for making a statement and the detailing at the side where the dress is gathered will stand out and make it look way more expensive than it actually is!

This dress from ASOS is definatly my ULTIMATE, the emblishment are really original and the Empire Line is really flattering on any body shape, particularly after too much ice cream!

Overall i would say if your going for this trend

* Make it a bit different to keep it interesting, try one with embelishment, or add an interesting piece of jewellery
*Ignore the old rule thatwhite only looks good on people with a tan, a LWD will work whatever your skin colour!

*WARNING* picnics and waterfights can be hazardous to your white outfit

Sparkling Summer Rings

After the Royal wedding i have been left with three things

1) A whole bunch of union Jack Bunting
2) A longing to marry a prince

3) A love of pretty rings!

So im indulging the final one with a post on some of the pretty rings that i am lusting after!

This 'Strawberry and Rose Ring' from Miss Selfridge is £6.50 and it is actually one ring, but it looks like you are layering them

This is the imaginatively name 'Vintage Look Cocktail Ring' from topshop and is slightly more pricey at £12.50 but it is so pretty and will really dress up any plain balck dress

I know, this ring from Forever 21 isnt really that pretty, But it reminds me of the ring from 'Como Agua Para Chocolate' which is probably one of the best books i have ever read, and i even liked the film version  of the book! (For me that is rare, i can count on 1 mitten how many times that has happened!)

And finally top of my wish list ring wish

A girl can dream can't she?
