I had a complete mind blank of what to wear, to be honest I think it was mainly nerves as I had never been to an awards ceremony like this before. For weeks I had been looking around in stores and browsing the internet for some inspiration, but everything I saw just didn’t have the right feel to it. That was until I made a last minute dash into one of my favourite high street stores….River Island.
I found this little gem of a midi dress in River Island on the Monday evening before the awards. It caught my eye right away as it was exactly what I had imagined; a stylish classic black lace designed dress. I would note that the dress is a quite figure hugging fit, but I felt that it enables your natural curves to shine. I particularly adore the cutout V detail on the top, it adds a saucy yet feminine touch to this sophisticated little number. This perfect lace midi dress oozes style and elegance, which is ideal for any occasion look such as an award ceremony!
For my look I decided to keep it quite basic as I wanted the focus to be primarily on the dress. Given that the weather in England is always unpredictable I made sure I wore a snuggly coat to keep me warm, I decided to go for a pastel pink mohair boyfriend coat from New Look. While shoes wise I chose to wear a pair of strappy faux leather heels in black from online store Missguided, which I teamed it up with a black faux pony hair clutch bag from ASOS.
What are your thoughts on my awards outfit?
