Now, as ladies we all love a good LBD, that’s the little black dress, a trusty beauty that never let’s us down and can be worn to any occasion. From bodycons to maxi, black is just a fabulous colour that can be dressed and worn in so many different ways with clever accessories and bold statement jewellery and nails. However it’s also nice to wear a dress with a bit of detail, a touch of colour and subtle finish that can be applied to the same events as your LBD, which is why this black and silver bodycon from Blue Vanilla works so well.
Here I am wearing the Harley Metallic Rose Dress in a size UK8, and it’s mix of 95% polyester and 5% elastane make it flexible, stretchy and extremely comfortable to wear. The black bodycon skirt finishes mid thigh length with a beautiful puffball style floral top, layering black velvet roses and leaves over a twinkling silver mesh. There is a keyhole reverse with a single button fastening, and the high scooped neckline creates a beautiful feature of the arms and shoulders.
I love how this dress is so soft and stretchy, holding you in all of the right places to create an effortless hourglass figure without feeling restrictive or digging in. The puffball top is loose fit but feminine, skimming over the bust and creating the illusion of a larger cleavage without being baggy. For a beautifully elegant evening look this dress certainly steals the show and looks incredible with a pair of black patent heels, clutch and simple jewellery and makeup. I love the sparkle and glam of the silver thread on the top, as unlike sequins and glitter it can’t drop off and get stuck to your clothes/hands/face and make a mess. Roses are my favourite flower and the large bold print makes a beautiful feature to raise the eye line upwards. For just £25.00 it is every ladies must have thanks to Blue Vanilla!
