My Style: Get The Label


     I received a sample from "Get the Label" an amazing company which offers a range of well known high-street and designer clothes with up to 75% off the RRP price! 
     I was sent this gorgeous Lipsy dress (which may I add, is perfect for the upcoming party season, or any formal events). It's well made and extremely comfortable. There is a silk lining underneath the skirt and the appliqué design is amazing. It's such a simple dress but both elegant and beautiful in it's own right. 
     Get the Label is a great way to browse different designers without having to trawl through the internet for hours on end. In addition to this, the fact that they offer a substantial amount off the original price is an added bonus. 
     Some of the brands Get the Label sells includes:
- Adidas
- Nike 
- Lipsy 
- Timberland 
- AX Paris
     With the holiday season coming up, everyone can be a bit tight for money, so why pay the original price for something when you can get say, 50% off? It's a no-brainer if you ask me. Although, regardless of the brand label, there are actually great fashion pieces on there. I'm not one for my clothes to all be about the brand or price, I'd rather have something that looks good that isn't designer. So, for a website to offer both it's killing two birds with one stone.
      My top 3 favourite bargains include:
     Overall, Get the Label is such a great concept for a website. It makes browsing easier and less time consuming as well as cost effective. I highly recommend visiting the site.

Balenciaga Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear

See the rest of the collection here.
     Okay, so we know that the fashion world is always one season ahead. But when I saw that "Spring" collections had released I couldn't believe it! This year has gone so quickly. Balenciaga has some of my favourite bag designs, so I was intrigued to see their clothing collection. I must say I was taken aback when I saw these designs. They are VERY different and offer something I haven't really seen before.
     The fabric throughout the collection is beautiful. I love the incorporation of silk in the designs - it has a very "lingerie" feel to it. The various shades of ivory are stunning. It's great to see something so simplistic in an industry aimed at being bold and lively.
     Nicole Phelps "Alexander Wang’s three-year stint at Balenciaga is over. He went out dancing, snapping selfies and twirling down the runway. His swan song was the freest of any of the collections he did for the house, and the most tender. All in shades of ivory. All paraded softly out on lace slippers. All in soft, natural fabrics like linen, cotton, and voile with gentle, furling edges. It looked effortless, where the ones that preceded it felt effortful. "
     I love the way the fabric falls on the models. The chunky sheer lace compliments the pieces well, adding to the underwear feel which I stated earlier. As a "Ready-to-Wear" collection, I wonder how each of these pieces would be styled. Although, I'm sure that there's someone out there bold enough to take on the designs.

My Style : Vestry

     I don't know about you but as soon as the clock hits 12:01 on November 1st all I can hear is the ringing of sleigh bells as the countdown to Christmas begins. And, we all know that with Christmas comes the party season - let the hunt for the perfect dress commence!
     I can relate to those girls who trawl the internet for hours on end trying to find an outfit which 1) looks good and 2) is comfortable. So when I was sent this gorgeous black lace dress from Vestry my jaw dropped. It fitted perfectly! The lace was stretchy, therefore making the dress extremely comfortable, and the neckline added class to the dress which (in my opinion) makes it look great and stand out. 
     This dress is a bodycon style (it nip and tucks you in all of the right places). The length is ideal because the lace carries on giving an extra few safety centimetres. 
     I also believe that black is such a great colour for party dresses - it gives you the freedom of matching bolder colours with your shoes, accessories and even nail polish (eg. pink, red, blue, green). 
     I was amazed by the overall quality of the dress too. As I stated before, the lace is stretchy which in turn means no pulls or holes created (ideal for a clutz like me)!
     I've looked on the Vestry website and pulled a few of my other party favourites:
1) Nude Bandage Dress
2) Luxe Beige Embellished Dress
3) Paris V Neck Sequin Dress
4) Lace Kate Dress (the one I'm wearing in the photos)

Whatever you choose for your Christmas party outfit, I hope you give Vestry and their amazing array of dresses a good look through!
