PRIMARK: PREMIUM PJS AT A PETITE PRICE

I just can’t get enough of Primark at the moment! I went through a phase of massively turning my nose up at it and everything it stands for. While I still disagree with many of their ethics and would rather not think about where their products come from, I have to admit that there have been so many amazing fashions in there recently.

My recent favourites include their sexy new bralettes and lingerie ranges with all the lace you could ever want. And yesterday when I was shopping I spotted even more beautiful lace and silky lovelies for the ever pleasing price Primark offers. This time it’s all premium looking PJs – and I have to admit that the quality isn’t totally awful either! Take a look at some of the beauties that could be yours – and all less than £12!!

BE SEXY FOR LESS WITH PRIMARK

You know I love Primark. I wish I didn’t and I know it’s corrupt and all the rest, but a broke girl still wants to look nice!! And there are even more reasons to look nice with some of Primark’s new lacy and satin offerings…

I popped into Primark at Marble Arch yesterday after a lovely bike ride around Hyde Park in the sunshine – it was rude not to as I was just a few feet away! And while I was purchasing a few new knitwear staples, I spotted so many beautiful bralets and PJs which are sure to make any girl feel feminine and lovely whether it’s to impress their man or themselves! Take a look at some of my favourites, available in most stores…

SUMMER STYLE – LACE & LARGE

So, the bralet trend isn’t a new one, but it’s certainly one that I’m on board with!

As a larger busted lady, I can’t partake in this day-to-day, I need the support! However there’s nothing I love more than getting home after a long day at work and ditching the bra. For those of you blessed with the ability to go bra-less or to live without wires, the hottest trend by far at the moment is the lace bralet. Team your delicate and feminine bralet with the masculine staple of an over-sized shirt for an immediately chic look. Add in some faded, distressed denim for the ultimate cool.

When it comes to colours, the darker the better for the bralet – think black, navy and deep wine colours. And for the shirt, lighter is fresher, you can’t beat a crisp white shirt or a lovely light blue.

So whether you’re looking for a casual but sexy evening look, or if you’re just on the look out for something a little more sexy and comfortable to slip into in the comfort of your own home, I’ve scoured the high street for the best out there…

Perfect party LBDs from ASOS.com

With the Christmas party season fast approaching, the best way to look effortlessly chic this year is to go for a little black dress, with an edge.  Whether it’s adding some sparkle, cut outs, sheer fabrics or lace, go for something a little different.  ASOS have got a wide range of gorgeous black party dresses and all of them are so reasonably priced.  The ones I’ve chosen are all under £50 as I understand how tight the purse strings can get around Christmas and New Year.  Here are a few of my favourite LBDs – courtest of ASOS.com….

Go with lace…

Lace is so in fashion at the moment, and ASOS have got some gorgeous dresses with lace inserts.  These dresses are all about sweetheart necklines and peek-a-boo lace.  Keep these dresses simple with a pair of black heels and simple accessories.  The lace adds something extra to the dress, so it doesn’t need big sparkley bangles or bright colourful additions. (Click on images to see them bigger, or click on the link below to take you to the purchase page).

1. Skater Dress with Lace and Mesh – £40.00.  2. Bodycon Dress with Lace Inserts – £40.00.  3. Bodycon Dress with Lace Yoke Peekaboo – £40.00.  4. Lace back dress with skater skirt – £45.00.  5. Dress with high lace neck – £35.00.

Cut it out…

Cut outs have been in fashion all this year and the trend is moving from summer through to winter.

1. Bodycon Dress In Ponti with Cut Out Bust – £25.00.  2. Skater Dress With Multi Strap – £40.00.  3. Cut Out Side Bodycon Dress – £30.00.  4. Ribbed Mini Dress with Cut Out – £40.00.  5. Mesh Insert Cut Out Skater Dress – £45.00.

A-Mesh-ing…

Mesh is very in at the moment, whether it’s an overlay of chiffon or inserts, make sure you have some mesh in your party dress this season.

1. Strapless Dress with Mesh Cut Out – £28.00.  2. Bodycon Dress with Mesh Insert – £35.00.  3. Motel Adelina Bodycon Mesh Panel Dress – £35.00.  4. Skater Dress with Collar – £45.00.  5. Bodycon Dress with Mesh Insert – £30.00.

Sparkle like the star you are…

Sequins and glitter and sparkles – Oh my!

1. Sequin Front Cut Out Side Dress – £40.00.  2. TFNC Bandeau Sweetheart Sequin Dress – £50.00.  3. Vero Moda Glitter Bodycon Dress – £20.00.  4. Rare Sequin Dress With Sequin Peter Pan Collar – £49.00.  5. Sequin T-shirt Dress With a Scoop Back – £50.00.

Keep the element of surprise…

All of these dresses look plain and simple from the front, but keep the element of surprise in the back, with cutout or cool strapping details.  These should be worn with chunky strappy heels or ankle boots.  If I could get away with going bra-less, then number 5 would be my choice, it’s covered at the front but oh-so-sexy at the back.

1. Mini dress with cross back strap – £25.00.  2. Mini dress with cage back – £25.00.  3. Bodycon dress slash back – £25.00.  4. Bodycon dress with strap back detail – £25.00.  5. Bodycon dress with slash back and long sleeves – £28.00.

Keep it simple…

If you’re not up for showing too much flesh with cut outs and inserts this party season then these dresses offer a chic, more covered option, while still adding some excitement.  Different textures, fabrics and cuts can make a plain and simple dress 10x more interesting.  I love #1, I want it!!

1. Strapless Skater Dress with Sweetheart neckline – £45.00.  2. Pleated Strapless Dress with Curved Neckline – £28.00.  3. Waisted Dress with Cut Out Shoulder Detail – £45.00.  4. Bodycon Dress with Scalloped Detail – £25.00.  5. Cross Front Tulip Skirt Dress – £45.00.

I hope these give you some inspiration when choosing your perfect party dress!  Happy shopping… And partying!

Love,
