A touch of Hollywood Glamour

Hollywood Glamour

It’s rare that I have the opportunity to dress up (and really go all out) so when those rare opportunities come along I seize them with both hands and grip on for dear life. With spring FINALLY upon us, I’ve started to get excited for some of the formal events I have coming up (including the #BlogosphereAwards, eek!) and I’ve been busy eyeing up some serious wardrobe candy.

One of my most recent additions to my incredibly close to bursting wardrobe is this lilac dream of a dress from Caris Closet. I wore it to the Prince’s Trust Awards and had so many compliments I’m sure I’ll be wearing it for a couple more occasions when the weather’s fine.

The perfect formal dress

When it comes to shopping for dresses, I can spend literal HOURS scrolling through websites on the hunt for the perfect one. Do I want something floor-length? Will something sparkly/sequinned look too try-hard? Can I wear something that short? DO I EVEN LIKE MY BACK ENOUGH TO HAVE IT ON DISPLAY?!

It’s hard to find something that oozes Hollywood Glamour without feeling too extravagant, but I think I might have just found that in this gorgeous dress from Caris Closet!

I personally think midi dresses solve a lot of those problems, and as I know lilac suits me (and it’s the perfect colour for spring/summer I was pretty certain this beauty was going to look dreamy on. It also has the perfect amount of swish, and makes me feel like a Disney princess every time I put it on. Paired with simple jewellery and heels this is such a pretty and easy-to-wear outfit.

ALSO OMG did I mention that it has POCKETS?! Nothing excites me more than a dress that is pretty and practical. The pockets are subtle, so they don’t detract from the beauty of the dress, and they’re perfect size for a wallet or keys – result!
