Cut Out Maxi Dress / Pearl and Crystal Cape (at the Love Event!)


Hello all!
On Thursday evening I attended Love's 'Next Top Designer' Competition, where I acted as a 'blogger judge' for the evening! I was overjoyed when I realised that this meant I'd have the chance at long last to wear a rather daring love dress that had been hanging in my wardrobe just waiting for the opportune moment, but ALSO that I would, by attending, be able to meet the very lovely ladies; Megan, Steph, SophieLyzi, Kim and last but certainly not least, Paige (who's incredible dress design was in the final 5!) 
As I'm sure you all know, I am really not one to wear anything too risqué/'figure hugging' (at least not in public.. in the daytime.. in front of other humans, at least) purely because I find it a bit too 'cheeky' - there is a time and a place for these things! So I was surprised to say the least when I found myself drawn to this black cut-out maxi dress with structured shoulders. Of course, I had to add an eye-catching accessory in the form of this pearl and crystal cape, to detract attention from.. well, we're all friends here so let's be honest.. the chest area. 
I was also so pleased that two of the girls I'd given away tickets for the event to managed to make it; Cath & Ami (who as it turns out, coincidentally had once worked a shift with me in the Topshop I work in!!) 


Dress : c/o Love. Pearl & Crystal Cape : River Island. Shoes : Topshop 'Shackles'.
