Are you going to the Oscars?

The title of this post is pretty apt as I celebrated one of my friends Birthday this weekend in a bar but the dress I was wearing managed to make me look like I was attending the Oscars!

Last week I was scrolling through Grazia and my eyes came across this little beauty from Very.co.uk. I've never shopped with Very before and it's actually never crossed my mind to even check out their website when I'm shopping online. I know they do a plus line too which is always a bonus for me. This dress is absolutely stunning and probably one of the nicest I own. It's a lovely fit with an elasticated waist and then cape-like arms and drop detail around the neck. I know it's seems a bit too special to wear to a bar but I was dying to wear it ever since its arrival on Thursday. To tone it down slightly I put my leather jacket on over it and just wore some studded ballet pumps from Topshop (which you can hardly see anyway).




This quality of this dress is amazing - I don't even think not one sequin dropped off the whole evening. It's always a bit awkward wearing full sequin clothing - the worry of getting attached to other people and sequins falling off all over the shop! But hats off to Very as I think it's well worth the £120.



Dress: Very.co.uk
Pumps: Topshop
Jacket: Primark
Jewellery: a selection from Accessorize, Love Heart and Cross, Claire's and H'n'M

I already can't wait to wear it again but this time with a pair of heels and a blazer! And I'll definitely be heading back to the Very website again for some more purchases.
