The Metallic Shola Dress from Coast with RAYE Grey Heels
I hope you are all doing really well and have some fun plans ready for the weekend that’s approaching! I’m not going to be up to much, other than just going out for lunch and then trying to take it easy for the rest of the weekend while mixing in a photo shoot here and there. I’m definitely in need of some downtime lately as even doing too much blogging and work from home can put a mental strain on me. I’m keeping really positive though and I’m definitely still happy! I have some amazing things to share with you over the next few weeks though too, I’m excited to be working on the up and coming blog posts!
Getting to my outfit here, I thought it was about time I tapped into my elegant and feminine side. When I saw this gorgeous Coast Metallic Shola Dress on ASOS a few weeks ago, I completely fell in love with it. It’s so different to anything that I have ever worn before and that’s what drew me in. The craftsmanship behind it too is gorgeous, it features a lace top and skirt over the actual dress and that has the metallic flowers embroidered onto it. The back is also cut open and it’s just so unique. I easily fell in love with it! In terms of sizing, I got my usual size small or UK 8 and for me, I can’t wear it with a bra because that makes my already larger chest protrude more and it wouldn’t zip up, so it’s a dress that needs to be worn bra-less I think, but with the high neckline that it has and secure fastenings, there’s absolutely no worry of having any type of wardrobe malfunctions at all.
I paired this gorgeous Coast dress with my RAYE Grey Suede Heels to keep with the colour theme and then I tapped into the copper coloured flowers on the dress and matched my Rebecca Minkoff Leo Clutch in Peach with it. Finally, I finished off with some various bracelets and my Olivia Burton Watch. I think keeping the accessories dainty and minimal was key in making this dress the focal point of the outfit. I truly love it when I come across a tea party or 60’s style dress that’s perfect for spinning around in and this Coast Metallic Shola dress is just that! It flares out in a nice and subtle way while still keeping its shape! I’d absolutely love to know what you think of this dress and the outfit in general as my fashion blog just wouldn’t be the same without your input!
