Step in to 2017 in style!
2016 was the year of all things fabulous - and what better way to celebrate the new year than by shimmying your way in to 2017 in a sparkly dress?!
I chose to pair my Missguided Dress from their Peace + Love collection with this Missguided Aviator Jacket and my Mulberry Lily. (p.s, can we just talk about how warm this jacket is? I wore it around New York on my recent visit and it was -4, but I was lovely and toasty warm!!) This jacket is designed in an oversized style, so I would say to definitely order a size down, especially if you're petite like me. I am a size 10, but I got an 8 and it was a perfect fit - I want it to have that oversized look, not the 'too big' look! This jacket is such high quality, I was amazed. And considering the quality of this jacket, it's only £65! I actually had some of my blogger friends asking 'which designer is this?' for me to tell them no, it's Missguided! 🙊 Safe to say a few of them were on the Missguided website the next day putting an order in!
As for the fit of the dress, this actually runs big. I ordered a 10, but it was a bit baggy on me, so I definitely should have gone for a size down. This dress is designed to be skin tight, so if this is the look that you want then order a size down! It's also made of a nice thick material, which keeps you lovely and warm, and also is very flattering on your silhouette - it clings to all the right places but at the same time the thick material and loose detailing on the dress means it doesn't show any lumps or bumps (perfect if you're going for a meal - you don't have to worry about having a Christmas food baby showing!!) Although be careful when you are wearing the dress, try not to get the beads caught on anything as the beading is so so delicate.
The dress retails for £115, but in the current sale you can snap it up for just £75 instead - is this a bargain or what?! Such an amazing quality item for such a small price!
I hope that I've managed to give you some outfit inspo and have a lovely 2017! Happy new year!
