If you caught my last post you might remember me saying I don’t do “sexy”, so I thought I’d put myself to the challenge and style something a bit sexier and glamorous than my usual get up.
Like most bloggers, I LOVE a bit of rose gold and as I’m never one to do things by half (in fact, I tend to take the things I love to the extreme), I decided I’d rock it from head to toe.
This sequin playsuit reminded me of one I’ve been eyeing up for about 2 years from a boutique called The Dolls House but at £260 I could never quite justify it (check it out HERE in black if you’re interested to see what it looks like). I have to hand it to The Dolls House, in terms of original design they are definitely ahead of the curve. For me personally a lot of their work is a tad over designed and a little fussy but there are a few pieces which are simply breathtaking. If you’re in the market for something special this would definitely be a good place to look. As a side note, I’ve heard great things about their quality so if you can afford to it’s probably worth splashing those extra pennies.
I’m a firm believer in splurging on investment pieces which either make your heart skip or you know you’ll get a lot of wear out of. This is the reason I steered away from The Dolls House playsuit. I just knew I wouldn’t get sufficient wear out of it to justify the money, no matter how pretty or good the quality might be. When I saw this very affordable ($33) option from Zaful I immediately knew it was the perfect compromise. I’m going to honest, the quality isn’t great and I had to tweak it a little (I swapped out the tassel belt it came with for a simple black grosgrain ribbon) but for the price, this is an amazing piece, which makes a real statement.

This look is the perfect example of how you can take something inexpensive and dress it up with gorgeous accessories to make it appear so much more expensive than it is. These Gianvito Rossi heels are always the shoes I reach for when I have a special event. Even though they have a super high heel, they’re amazingly comfortable. As a lot of you will know I’m a shoe gal and will happily invest in quality shoes. Gianvito Rossi is always my brand of choice because they look gorgeous and are always comfortable (you can read more about Gianvito Rossi and it’s many merits HERE).
My choker is actually a hair piece I just double wrapped around my neck. I love pieces that have multi-use, it’s like getting two pieces for the price of one. I’m yet to try it but it could also work as a very pretty wrap bracelet too, so I’m definitely getting value for money with this one! I did a full review of Lily and Rose’s jewellery HERE, in case you want to read more about them.
I hope you enjoyed my take on glam! Hopefully, it’s an example that you don’t have to pay big money to look like it. Even the most affordable pieces can look like a million dollars with the right accessories. Sometimes it’s great fun to dress up and feel dazzling but I will always be a comfort first kinda gal. If you have any tips on how to do glam, let me know in the comments below, would LOVE to hear them!
