Fit & Flare

I was invited to a lovely evening of fashion, champagne & more fashion at my local Reiss store last week to launch their fantastic AW13 collection. The beautiful Store Manager Carly, looked a million dollars wearing this dress & I absolutely fell in love with it. She found one in my size, I tried it on and my Husband loved it so much that he bought it for me on the spot!

Fit & flare styles are a key trend this season. One of the most figure flattering looks, the style is fitted through the bodice, cinched in at the waist and flares out into a fuller skirt, creating a very feminine, flirty silhouette. The 'Roe Snake' dress is a gorgeous take on this trend. Made from 100% pure silk it feels so sensual against my skin. It features short sleeves, that fantastic fit & flare shape, a round neck, an all over snake print in indigo and double frills at the hem that add femininity and movement.

I went for a very dressed down look when I styled my dress for a sunny afternoon out with the girls. I wore a great pair of flat Topshop brogues (my current obsession with androgynous flat footwear is showing no sign of abating!) and added a gorgeous pop of colour with my bright red satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Co; this scarlet beauty never fails to be a show stopper!
