Outfit: LBD with a Sparkly Collar for (Another) Birthday Lunch

Yesterday was the third consecutive day of celebrating my birthday when my parents came for lunch.

This is one of my favourite dresses and one which is now in its third year but the simple shape and the nod to the sixties means it doesn’t date.

I tend to wear my hair up to show off the beautiful sparkly collar and I’m lucky that my 14 year old daughter is somewhat of an expert.

My tights have diamante detail on one leg which echoes the sparkly collar of my dress. They’re from UK Tights which has the widest selection of hosiery imaginable.with hundreds of designs from the plain and simple to the rather whacky and everything in between. These are by Italian brand Trasparenze.

My daughter also spent several hours baking and decorating this three tiered chocolate cake. It was absolutely beautiful and tasted divine. I was very touched by her thoughtfulness and the time she spent on it.

    Like the tights and heels with your LBD the detail on the ankle is nice
