Cocktail Dresses

The other day I had a cocktail party to go to and I had a panic attack. Most of my dresses are cotton summer dresses and I only have 2-3 really nice cocktail dresses… which I have worn soooo many times already (it was starting to look a bit embarrassing), that I actually uttered the words “OMG I have nothing to wear!”.

I really believe in choosing and buying dresses that you can wear again and again. And these two are definite winners.

Lover Ingenue Slip Dress – This dusty rose colour will always be in style. Adjustable straps, easy length, you’ll definitely get lots of wears for weddings, cocktail parties, garden tea parties, horse races and more.

Self Portrait 3D Floral Azaelea Dress – Such a gorgeous dress for this new season. The red colour and 3D lace  just is stunning. You definitely can’t go wrong with this one.

Statement Kitten Heels

OK yes I know these are a tad expensive, but this is a Go Big sale after all! If you’re in the market for a statement splurge, kitten heels are the go.

Aquazzura Powder Puff 45 Sling Pumps – I’m love! I was seriously so tempted to buy these, but thankfully they are sold out in my size. Easy to wear kitten heel, with a fun pompom, pointed toe, cute AF. They’d be so perfect to wear with a simple dress or jeans and a tee. 25% off too.

Aquazzura Kisha 45 Pumps – White pointed-toe shoes are super popular this season. These have been sitting in my Shopping Cart for a while. You see, I have a pair of cheap & cheerful white ASOS pointed toe flats and have been considering to upgrade to something more luxe. I know these will be a classic for my wardrobe. Will last me years. Will go with everything.

Cute dress alert!

Tis true, I’m always on the lookout for sweet and simple dresses with a cute print.

Cupcakes and Cashmere Dezzi Spring Bouquet Floral Dress – Easy to wear, lovely colour and print. Not too bright and floral. Perfect for days you want to wear floral without looking TOO FLORAL – happens to me all the time.

re:named Ruffle Wrap Dress – This cutie is AUD$75. Again, another floral dress that is not IN YOUR FACE floral.

Mid Heel Magic

Ok perhaps this comes with age, but I’ve been loving my kitten heels lately. And when I wore my high heel stiletto shoes one night to a party, I almost cried. My feet were so sore! I’m tossing out my cheap heels, keeping my luxe ones, and I’m now slowly trying to buy a couple of good quality mid-heeled shoes so I can have more comfortable options.

Loeffler Randall Emi City Sandals – Lovely light nude colour to go with everything. Sleek and minimal design, with a stylish wave detail. Loafer Randall has the loveliest leathers, this will surely be nice and comfy.

Stuart Weitzman Nearlynude Sandals – Mr Weitzman is a master shoe maker and all his shoes seem like wardrobe classics. These are just gorgeous!

Square-neck Necklines

Square or straight necklines are fast becoming popular again. These work well with tank tops or dresses (I’m not a fan of the cap sleeve with a square neck look). I just adore these casual dresses because they are fun and flirty, yet their style and colours keep them versatile and wearable.

Bec & Bridge Under Eave Mini Dress – Perfect for a getaway or just the weekend. Denim and navy will always be a classic wardrobe colour. Love the hugging and flattering shape of this dress!

Steele Estate Dress – Another good-looking casual dress! I’m obsessed! This white and pinstripe pattern will last for many seasons.

Everyday Sling Back Heels

Ok you probably get the idea that low heels are back in fashion, especially sling backs. I love mine. So easy to slip on and off. A bit like flip flops, but much more stylish. Choosing shoes from a more affordable brand, still made from leather, in a classic, minimal look, will ensure they last you years.

Sam Edelman Ludlow Slingback Pumps – These are a more affordable version of kitten heels I bought a few months ago (reviewed here).

Steven Lourdes Slingback Flats – Go the white shoe! I hear you saying, “Um I don’t know about white shoes”… But if you are used to wearing white sneakers with jeans/pants/everything… you’ll probably be surprised how these white shoes will just go with everything, then you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.

Hope you find something you love!

Happy shopping!
