The Gorgeous Coast Berlin Print Ciarra Dress

I have to start this blog post with ‘isn’t this dress just beautiful?’ because when I first saw it online, my thoughts were exactly that. I’m wearing the Coast Berlin Print Ciarra Dress which has a soft pink top and a mesh skirt printed with red and pink roses, which is just picturesque. I took this dress in size UK 10 for anyone wondering and it does run smaller (although this could be because I gained a little weight) compared to the previous Coast Metallic Purple Dress that I wore last year, but the same thing goes – I’m not able to wear a bra with it. But honestly, when a dress is this gorgeous and quite secure/supportive, who even needs one?

I wanted to play with all of the colours in this Coast Berlin dress and decided to make my outfit into a pink and red ombre effect, starting with pale at the top, moving down into a deep red, which is why I chose to wear my RAYE Carrie Pumps in Burgundy to really intensify the red tones, plus I added in some red roses to play off the print (I carried these roses last time with my Valentine’s Day outfit, so you might recognise them). I am really happy with how the pale pink to burgundy ombre effect turned out though, I think it looks so pretty and this dress is mostly responsible for that with all its beauty. Not to mention how nicely it all pops against the green in the churchyard background. I love Summertime for styling outfits! Let me know what you think of it as usual, I always love your comments!

P.S. – There’s a little clue within these photos about the news I’m going to be sharing with you in a couple of days! So, analyse these photos carefully, then wait for the 30th July to see if you were correct! He he!

    Love the dress and shoes! I see several possible clues Lorna. ?

      Ha ha, well keep them to yourself for now 🙂

    • July 28, 2016 / 3:54 pm

      I’m wearing a few different rings and jewellery. It will all be revealed on the 30th!

    I am properly impressed. (If you don’t need the support, by all means do without the bra.) The swell thing about this dress is that it seems to be moving all the time, even if you’re not.

      It does! The netting is very lightweight so it blows about constantly, it’s very fluid and 3D for a dress!

    That skirt is stunning! I’m in love! x

    This dress really does shout out that it’s summer. 🙂 It’s a beautiful pattern and I love all of the bright colours and most especially the pinks. I’m also getting a slight ghostly vibe from the dress too – due to the partially faded yet quite shiny look that it has. It’s quite intriguing on the eye. 🙂

    • July 28, 2016 / 9:47 pm

      Oooh a ghostly vibe, I’ve not heard that one before! I can see what you mean though, definitely! What did you think of the ombre effect of the outfit?

        I think that works really well… it’s a very clever transition. 🙂

    Always so beautiful Lorna, but this is stunning! You bring out the colours beautifully, and your dancing or skipping move in one of these photos (a flamenco touch?) is so playful. A lovely backdrop through the gates to the church too.

    I’m guessing about your news and hope it’s wonderful: look forward to the revelation on the 30th!

    • July 31, 2016 / 10:06 am

      Thank you so much! It does have that kind of touch to it!

    looking so gorgeous

      Thank you so much! That’s really kind!

    You look absolutely divine Lorna, and this dress is stunning on you. I can see why you fell in love with it! I love the way you styled it for an ombre effect, with different shades of pink and red, and the red roses you’re carrying are a really nice touch. All the images are lovely. I know what you mean, taking outfit pictures in the summer is just heavenly compared to photos shoots outdoors in the winter!

    I’m excited to finally hear your announcement tomorrow! The Church setting and the ring I spy seem to be confirming my theory so far!

    I hope you’ve been well, and have a lovely weekend.

    Lots of love as always,

    Saba xx

      Thank you, Saba! I’m so glad you love it! And you are right! I did think you would be, ha ha. It’s all come together beautifully!

      Thank you so much!!

    I’m trying really hard to notice what’s different and my best guess is something to do with your rings? It can’t be an engagement ring as you’re wearing one on your finger for the past few post already…tell us, Lorna! The suspense is killing me. LOL!

I don’t know much about COAST nor have I seen them in Canada but I definitely am going to check the site. Do you think they ship out to my neck of the woods? xo
