For Love and Lemons

Look at this frock!

Vixen dress

Gorgeous huh?!

Ian and I have been invited to The Royal Television Society Dinner in a couple of weeks time and I was in much need of a new frock (as ever). I wasn’t too sure exactly what I was looking for but I knew that I wanted it to have glamour, elegance and be unique and thus, I happened upon this beauty. As soon as I clapped eyes on it I knew that it just had to be mine. The dress is by one of my favourite clothing brands, and one that I’ve mentioned to you before: For Love and Lemons. They’re based in California and are sold by an online retail store called Revolve. All of their clothing have the same fun, laid-back, elegant , sexiness that you would expect from a fashion brand from LA, and they always use beautiful and luxurious fabrics for there clothes. I didn’t set out to spend as much as I did, as this dress was pretty pricey, but I reasoned that it was for a special occasion so it was worth getting. Also, the colour of the dress – which is described on the website as being “Sage”, but I think it probably closer to Teal, is wonderful. And unlike other evening dresses this one actually looks as if it might be pretty comfortable to wear which is very important I think. There is nothing worse then wearing a beautiful dress that you have to keep pulling down, or up, or having scratchy/ itchy material or your dress being too tight. I don’t think that we’re going to have any such problems here.

So, the delivery time, considering it’s coming from LA, is 2 weeks, which is reasonably long, but it’s enough time for me to source the appropriate accessories for the occasion. I’m not going to be wearing lots of jewellery as it’s not my style and the dress doesn’t need it but a nice, classy pair of earrings and maybe a fur stole? would be nice methinks. Unlike Nasty Gal, it allows you to prepay your duties and taxes saving you the usual “nasty surprises” when you order an international package and the courier turns up demanding extra cash!

But I’ve only just learnt how to do THIS:   Fashion Collage This is my very first vision board and I’m really quite chuffed with it. I came across this website: http://www.picmonkey.com  which allows you to create your very own vision board with a selection of images or you can use your own. It’s great fun as it allows you to put all your favourite things together to create a collage. You can edit the images and add different affects  aswell as add text too. I’m hooked! 🙂 Initially I was looking for something that I’d be able to use to promote my products in a more visually stimulating way and I think I’ve now found just the thing. Now all I need to do is learn how to take better photography! ha!

And now I’m addicted! Look See:
