GIMMIE SUGARLIPS!

After my little spree in the H&M Sale I put myself on a self imposed spending ban until my birthday on the 6th of July. So imagine how delighted I was when this gorgeous dress arrived courtesy of LA-based brand Sugarlips. The Opposites Attract Dress is everything I  look for in a show stopping garment - it has the fashion forward and edgy style that a lust over and the vibrant neon yellow is bang on trend - is it my new favourite dress? Yes I think it is, I'm certain to spend a good few hours debating what Sugarlips item I am going to treat myself to for my birthday!

Because of the intricate chiffon layers in different lengths I wanted to keep the styling simple, teaming with my favourite silver wedges and clutch, simple silver accessories and metallic nails - to add the touch edge that I loved, I popped a leatherette biker jacket over the top.

I could gush about this dress all day, it certainly brights up a dreary British summer - the rain had just stopped when we ventured out to take these pictures.

Dress, Sugarlips - same here.
Leatherette Biker, Matalan - similar here.
Envelope Clutch, H&M - similar here.
Silver Wedges, ASOS - similar here.
Clover Necklace, H&M - similar here.









So what do you guys think? Be gentle with me, they are the first pictures I had took outside and I was feeling a little shy.

Have any of you bought any pieces from Sugarlips? Thanks again to them for sending me this lovely dress!

  7. Oh welcome to the world of awkward picture outfit posts! I hated it when I started doing mine but you get over it in the end, even worse when you have to ask a family member to take a picture for you!! But you look absolutely fabulous regardless! That neon is absolutely delicious. So jealous, Sugarlips need to send me some lovely goodies! And I know what you mean about the ban. I went out holiday clothes shopping and it cost me a bomb. When I come back from my holidays I really do need to snap my purse firmly shut!

    1. Thanks fellow Gemma for your kind words :)
      It's always when you're on a spending ban that you see things you want everywhere - of course it wouldn't be a problem if I didn't look so much!

  26. The outside pics are great!! I've always found that natural lighting & uncluttered backgrounds make taking bloggy photos easier. I get SUPER awkward when anyone takes me photo in proper public (street style photographers hate me), I'm all about the self timer function in my driveway ;)

    1. I am usually shy and awkward anyway, I felt such an idiot - maybe I will get used to it - I do take some of my cues from you because you are so natural!
