1/6 Glam Dress: Godfrey Monday, Jun 23 2008 

I adore dresses, so today I am starting the count down of my six most craved glam dresses. So let’s start with Jay Godfrey’s one shoulder bow dress:

So, why do I love it? Well, it’s super maxi and elegant, which means you can show off your amazing legs whilst looking amazingly classy at the same time (a rarity in women these days). It’s totally feminine with its coral pink colour, soft silk/lycra fabric and gorgeous strap-bow. The big bow has been in for a while now, yet it is often worn totally wrong. This design shows a way how it should be worn: not too OTT in size and exquisitely placed on the side strap. This also leads to another fashion-love of mine at the moment, the one-strap shoulder dress (love them!).

I personally wouldn’t team this dress up with a large amount of accessories, or else it will look over the top and lose it’s elegance, not to mention killing out the simple design of the dress. A cute soft-gold clutch would do the trick.

As for shoes? Simple, soft gold (NOT bright gold) strap shoes. Again, we don’t want to overpower the dress with the footwear. 

So remember, the dress is the statement in this occasion.

Exquisite Marchesa Thursday, May 1 2008 

I had a dinner party last weekend, which is just the perfect excuse for a new outfit; though, I decided to stick with an old favourite:

This Marchesa strapless dress is just exquisite. I found it in a boutique about a year ago. Every time I see it in my robe I fall in love all over again and can’t help but run my hand over the stunning embroidery. You can’t see it in the picture, but its back it rather low, which is a bonus (I love low-backed dresses). It’s just so romantic and the lace is top quality. Beautiful, right?
