Normally I am quite sceptical about celebrity clothing lines – Ariana for Lipsy was no exception. I hesitantly popped the dress on, felt like I was cheating on my own principles until I reached the mirror, and saw myself completely slaying the look. So I walked around the house in this evening dress for the rest of that day, simply because it made me feel surprisingly awesome.
I eventually wore the frock for an outing paired with the Ariana for Lipsy PU leather jacket. I started loving the dress a little bit more because of the way it waltzed with the wind. Any dress that does that is a firm favourite.
Though it’s marketed as an party frock, I am planning on converting it into a beach dress with a pair of gladiators. This is a perfect post-swim slip-on as it comes with an in-built body suit, hence zero fuss. Amazing for when you are walking out of a sandy beach right into a swanky bar to enjoy the sunset. Barcelona, I am looking at you.
