As part of my role as the Kaleidoscope Blogger Expert, (here is my latest article on the Kaleidoscope blog), every month, I select my favourite and standout items from the latest collections. I actually spotted this beauty at the Kaleidoscope press day back in May and knew then and there that it would be my party dress of choice come Autumn Winter.
I fell in love with this type of Gatsby-inspired dress after my sister-in-law wore an ivory Jenny Packham gown in this style on her wedding day though I have always loved the elegance and glamour of the 1920s.
This black wrap bracelet with baguette shaped diamantes is a new, limited edition addition (!) to my online boutique, Lizzy O. It's hard to capture just how sparkly it is.
The nude full-length lining, (slip), is separate from the beaded mesh overlay. The dress also comes with an above-knee-length black slip, which makes it look completely different.
It would of course be very easy to buy a long black and a shorter nude slip to ring the changes further, or even a silver or bronze one.
The black faux fur evening jacket is perfect for popping over evening wear. Beautifully soft and very tactile, it adds more than a touch of glamour. I'd wear this with boyfriend jeans and heels too though actually.
I think this dress is absolutely stunning and it is beautifully made and at £129 is an excellent price point.
All I need now is a cocktail party to which to wear it...
