Laura Fantacci above looking dreamy in Isa Arfen at Paris fashion week recently. 

Patterns, florals, tulle, embellishment all perfect for evening wear and maybe less boring than classic black. 

Preen and Needle & Thread are respectively brilliant at patterned and embellished evening dresses and you will not be surprised that some of their dresses appear in my edit, but I have a few high street finds too .... take a look. 


Some of those Preen ones are discounted on the Outnet or Vestiaire, my Preen Line dress has arrived which I ordered from HardlyEverWoreIt and I am delighted, so much I did a little happy dance when I tried it on! I have found the same dress on Vestiarie (here in a small and here in a medium) mine is a size small (suitable up to a small 12) and although it's described as a midi dress it is long on me, I am 5ft 3 for reference (I promise I will get around to show you on stories, so watch out). 

Other favourites in the edit that are worth mentioning are the Mes Demoiselles dress, worn with a large belt at the waist and a black tuxedo jacket it would look amazing! This particular dress would give you cost per wear as it's a great dress for your summer holidays worn floaty. The Ganni leopard is a classic you will have for years and the H&M has a definite Needle & Thread vibe. 

Did you notice the Boden Icon ones ...... they are rather special aren't they! Again, they would give you cost per wear as they can be worn a number of ways, I love them styled with the Boden Icon boots ... which are just FABULOUS! 

Boden have 25% off at the moment so it is worth checking out their Icon range some very special pieces ... apart from the dresses and boots I have mentioned I also adore this velvet jacket

Boden 25% code is J3U3
