Ditch the bog standard little black dresses gals, because colour and sequins are very IN this Christmas party season, much to my delight. We’ve been told forever by the media, that the little black dress is THE essential dress that should be in every woman’s wardrobe, but should it really? I agree, a little black dress is a classic number that can always wow but I’m bored of it. I am not, repeat NOT one of those women who constantly wears black clothing. I thrive off colour, block colours, primary colours, all colour! My fashion sense reflects me, all of me. Who I am inside, not just on the outside. Fashion is something I use to express myself. I’m not afraid to be outrageous, I’ll wear what I like, no matter how risky it is. And anyone who knows me, reading this will know what exactly what I mean. I’d say my style is very extra, I’m always overdressed but in my eyes, there’s no such thing as being overdressed! My Mam always says to me “Would TOWIE be seen out like that?”
Finding the perfect Christmas party dress is such a hard task, isn’t it ladies? I’m yet too met a woman who was able to find her Christmas dress in one shop. It has to be perfect, I like to wow. I love getting glammed up and Christmas is the one time of year you can wear as many sequins and sparkle as you want and it acceptable! The Christmas Party dress is an investment all woman has to make, I even double my average dress budget on it. This sort of dress isn’t from fast fashion websites.
I recently a came across Cari’s Closet on my quest online and found some stunning dresses, including this amazing number. Cari’s Closet, a Dublin based shop, was created by the brand’s founder Lisa Duffy’s love for fashion. The boutique is inspired and named after Lisa’s daughter Cari and the brand was born in 2012. This is the Adele Floral Print Lace Mini Dress, coming in at £139. This is a relaxed-fit mini dress and fabricated in a full floral detail lace with high neck and long sleeves. The hem follows the floral motif of the fabric to give an organic asymmetric style. It features a padded neckline and built-in nude lining for coverage. I fell in love with it the minute I laid eyes on it. It’s just perfect, nothing like I’ve seen before. I knew it would be flattering around my bust and waist because of its design and style. When buying online you have to be so careful when it comes to quality because you can just never tell with photos, however, this is such a gorgeous material and fully lined. So thick and rich! I was worried about the nude lining underneath but it’s fully covered meaning all your private areas are covered fully! The design is a re-vamp from the classic Little Black Dress don’t you think? It’s so striking, a lot of love and attention has gone into the detailing too.
The dress is totally worth the money because of its sheer quality and fit to size. Sizing is spot on! I have totally fallen in love with all of the ranges on Cari’s Closet and can’t wait to get my next dress from here!
