What to wear for a fancy dinner?

18 Mar

Isn’t it ironic that I haven’t had time to blog because I’ve been planning a bloggers event? MBE (Midlands Blogger Event) was an incredible success yesterday and I’ll be blogging this week with photographs, links to the bloggers that came and all the info about the sponsors!

For now, I need some help on what to wear! My lovely boyfriend is taking me out for a rather swish meal tomorrow night at Marco Pieree-White’s restaurant in The Cube in Birmingham as a little treat for all the hard work I’ve put into organising yesterday’s event (just gutted my co-host isn’t coming!)

Do I go for a Little Black Dress? Or maybe a floral, vintage inspired number with red lipstick and a hair flower? And then there’s the whole bag option- Mulberry Alexa or a clutch? Elizabeth Arden snake print clutch or sparkly bow one from Accessorize?

Hell, if I’m having this much trouble picking, how am I going to make a decision on what to have for dinner?

I’ve got less than 24 hours to decide and if someone could just magic this outfit into my wardrobe in time then I’d be the happiest girl alive!


Introducing Valli Colpani.

1 Dec

Valli Colpani is a name I’m quickly falling in love with: her exquisite dresses provide a chic Italian look with the quirky edge of London cool. The designer has a huge loyal fan base spanning across Britain and America and is the gem of Portobello.

When I spotted the red crepe wool Punta dress I knew I had to showcase it on Florals and Cupcakes. This beautiful LRD (Little Red Dress) is perfect for the Christmas party season and beyond. This figure-hugging dress, with a plunging neckline, acts as a statement of classic femininity whilst the bold red colour exudes confidence. Pair with a metallic clutch and heels for a guaranteed kiss under the mistletoe this December.

See the designer’s website for more details.
