Yellow diamonds in the sky...

Sunday, November 13, 2011

So a while back I showed you guys what I wore to the Cosmo Blog Awards, a gold sequin bodycon dress by tfnc. What I didnt tell you is they gifted me with this dress for a style challenge for their blog. They wanted me to style this dress for a more casual day time look. This kinda challenge suits my style down to a T, my style doesnt change much from day to night. Maybe a little more eyeliner and a pair of heels instead of flats but I tend to wear quite feminine dresses or skirts most days that could be dressed up or down very simply. Effortless and easy is my motto.
But a dress coated in gold sequins... is a pretty hard challenge to 'tone down'. I styled it 3 different ways and thought Id share the first look...

  14. wow! it can be such a challenge to wear a bodycon dress casually, esp one with this much pizzaz, but this looks so fun & cozy! i think this particular dress would be great worn as a top- throw on a skirt over it (high-waisted pencil or a fuller one) and it's a completely different look.

  28. This is a really beautiful look. The light (both outiside) and from the sequins is rather dazzling in these photos. I agree that gold sequins body-con could be a little much for the countryside (I love dressing up but try not spark too many looks from my elderly country neighbours), but I love how you're styled it. The thick tights and boots make it genuinely quite practical.

    Cheers for the casual inspiration!
