Style Note: This event was a week before heading off to the sunny city of Havana Cuba, so I obviously had bikinis on my mind a little more than I had ball gown shopping on my check list. With that said I had a “wear whatever I can find in my wardrobe” attitude towards my styling for this event purely because I was ‘time poor’ packing for my holiday. Now I wouldn’t recommend this method of prep for such a glam event but as I didn’t have a choice, so I went for a rummage through my rails to see what I had. I dug out a dress I had got from Rare London a while back but had never worn due to the fact that it was made the perfect length for a 5ft 11 super model, now me being a dinky 5.ft 2 I needed some serious tailoring help! A friend of mine is a seamstress so I begged for her help and she thankfully took the hem up and gave me a fitting. This style of dress is perfect for a glam occasion, the heavy draped fabric is great for covering curvy thighs  that you may want to hide or for covering your food baby aka belly bloat after a sit down meal. I wouldn’t recommend it for a woman with a larger bust as it may be a little “tooooo sexy” for a formal occassion and also you can’t hide a bra in this thing either. Overall the nude and black colour scheme will suit every skin tone so no worries there, it’s a winning dress style in my opinion and the guys over at the Daily Mail also gave it a big thumbs up!
