Raindrops of Sapphire x Fever London


(Dress – Exact, Shoes – Exact & Similar, Ring – Similar, Watch – Similar)

When Fever London contacted me and asked me if I wanted to be a part of their new styling campaign, I got incredibly excited. It’s something different for me and out of my usual comfort zone, which is why I was more than happy to do it so that I could do something new and fun! They specialise in gorgeous vintage inspired dresses, which isn’t something I would normally wear, and they do it incredibly well! This is going to be a three part series because I’m styling this Hollis pencil dress in red in three different ways; work, evening and casual.

So, this is the look that I came up with first and it was work inspired. I don’t have a briefcase or a big tote that I would take to work as you know blogging is my full time job and I work from home, however I thought it might be fun to have a book with me as part of this outfit as I read a lot. This would definitely be something you could wear to the office too though! Work dresses come in all sorts of variations and I think this one mixes the perfect amount of sophistication with vibrancy to look beautiful. Initially I wasn’t sure on this style of dress, but after trying it on, I completely fell in love with it. I think it’s so pretty and it’s actually really flattering. As I’m quite small, it does come up really long on me, almost below my knees, so I did a little modification to it and shortened it so it suits my frame more.

I paired the red dress with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle shoes, my Olivia Burton butterfly watch and my Butler & Wilson lips ring. I wanted to keep everything simple and sleek to make sure it was suitable for office wear and I think it turned out ok. If you own a Fever London dress already then your luck is in! The brand is hosting a contest at the moment where you snap photos of yourself in a Fever London outfit and include #WearingFever when you upload it! They will be choosing a winner at the end of the month after the closing date on the 2nd June. Definitely get involved if you have one of their pretty dresses! The next look involving this dress that I share with you will be my evening outfit. What do you think of this one though? Comment and let me know!
