The LBD (Little Birthday Dress) Edit

So, it’s my 20th birthday coming up, a ultimate excuse for a new dress right?! There’s just something about adding a new item to my wardrobe that makes me feel extra happy. When searching for the perfect dress I think about what kind of colour/theme I am going for, then fire away on the internet searching for that amazing piece. As my birthday falls on the day before Halloween I am looking for that Gothic, yet elegant dress that shouts it’s that time of year to dress up and look the part. I really love the Gothic Victoriana trend that is in fashion at the moment. As the party season is fast approaching (faster than we all thought), I thought I would share with you some of my finds. I hope this has given you some inspiration for finding the perfect party dress.

This dress is from pretty little thing.com and comes in at an amazing price of £15. It’s on trend and a bargain, you can’t go wrong!. The lace brings a real elegant touch. Paired with some lace up heels this would be perfect for a night out on the town.  

The Girly Girl

If your more of a girly girl and wanted to go for something a bit more chic then I’d suggest this feather trim dress which shouts elegant.  The fact it is a black dress means it would be a brilliant investment as it would look great for any dressy occasion.  

The Racey Lacey

Shop Here

This is one of my favourites that I have found.  The lace gives a pretty feel, whilst the sheer material gives off a look which is perfect for Halloween.  Paired with a red lip and red heels you’re ready to party.

The Bell bottom sleeves on this dress highlight the current 70’s trend.  The embellishment gives just enough bling to look effortlessly chic.  Perfect for those with a smaller bust as the v neckline would enhance that area.  Shop Here


The classic little black dress never fails to impress.  Dress up with heels and a statement necklace to get the perfect party season look, or dress down with flats for the more casual effortless look. The scallop hemline gives an added touch to your average little black dress. Shop Here


Classic Rouge

Shop Here

Moving away from the darker end of the colour spectrum, this dress is perfect for that simple, yet classy look, especially as the invites to Christmas parties start rolling in.  

Sparkle Spice

Shop Here

The classic sequin party dress, one that never fails to stun.  A simple pair of black heels and you’re ready to go.  This winter white colour would really compliment tanned or olive skin. 

Thanks for stopping by. All of these dresses are based on my personal taste.  I hope this has given you some ideas when it comes to finding your perfect party/birthday dress :) 


Sussed Scent

I've never really been a perfume kind of girl, especially not the ‘loyal to one brand’ kind. However, when I was returning from my sun soaked holiday in Ibiza, I couldn't resist taking a trip into Duty Free. From that moment onward, I had been converted. Not only into a perfume lover but... A BRONZE GODDESS. (Yes, the name went perfectly with my tan). It was like I was reliving my holiday all over again. The smell of sun cream, coconut and the fresh sea air all rolled into one bottle. Since my discovery I will certainly be stocking up.

I know that this scent will trigger the happy times of summer and holidays. Even if it is a fragrance crime to be wearing a summer perfume in the height of autumn/winter, I will certainly be found guilty. Wearing a perfume that I love has made me feel confident in my own skin and although unseen to the human eye, I feel as though it completes my look.
