This silk number arrived in the post last week and I have to say I loved the style. This victoriana style is very on trend right now for AW16. The lace details and silk texture give this classic style a revival and creates more of a gothic edge. We have seen the vampy inspiration for this trend on the AW16 catwalks this year with showcases from Marc Jacobs to Burberry to Valentino and this trend has now trickled down into mainstream fashion from these luxury brands.
This dress is a bargain at £20, and can be worn for a casual day look like I have styled here or a fancy evening look. It also is available in black, which I am tempted by. My idea behind styling this dress was to show the versatility of the piece. Not only can it be worn as a dress, but also how it can be used as the perfect layer in an outfit for this season. Throwing a cosy jumper over a dress transforms the look and creates the illusion that actually maaaybe I am wearing a skirt.
Layers are also essential right now since November has gotten so cold! I grabbed this grey coat out of my wardrobe that I have actually had for a few years now. It is one of those trusty staple pieces that I bring out every single winter. I love the mix of grey tones in this look, with the black pieces creating more of an edge to the outfit.
I think that these gorgeous high knee boots work perfectly with this dress and add a bit more glam points to the look. I actually picked these beauty's up in Primark at the weekend. Can you believe it? I am so happy that I found them and at a bargain price of just £22. Not only do they look great, but they actually do a good job in keeping my legs warm. They also allow me to secretly wear comfy, patterned knee-high socks underneath without anyone around me knowing.
I am actually quite proud of this look I have created and I think I successfully made this dress my own. I hope this has given you some inspiration to try and experiment a bit more with fashion. Leave your comfort zone, try pieces you wouldn't normally go for and push yourself to just have fun with it. Fashion should always be fun! This mantra can also be replicated in our own lives. There is always something new out there to try, whether it is fashion, a new food or even a new hobby. It can literally be anything. What have you always thought about doing, but never actually done. Just go and do it! After all, what is life without a challenge?
Boohoo have got so mant more amazing dresses in for AW16, have a quick browse here and start getting some inspiration for Christmas Party season - not long to go now!

After lusting over so many beautiful Aviator Coat's, any that I tried on just hadn't been quite right, so I was extremely happy that I eventually found the one for me - this gorgeous suede, shearling aviator coat of dreams.
Is it possible to be slightly in love with a coat? Because I think I might be. I am so happy I treated myself to a new winter coat, especially since London has seriously dropped in temperature in the past week. This baby is from Zara and I can confirm it is the comfiest and cosiest jacket I have ever owned. It is honestly the dream. It is completely fleece lined inside, with the amazing detail on the cuffs and collar. I also love the hardware of this coat, the big buckles definitely add more of a stylish edge. The quality is also absolutely amazing, Zara has nailed it again and at a pretty reasonable price too.

What do you think of this coat? Are you in love with the Aviator Coat trend like me?

A couple of week's ago after work I headed with my friend Maddie to Stylist Live for a fun evening of inspiring talks, fun pop up shops, free drinks and even a cheeky massage. It was the perfect Friday evening and the best way to start the weekend.
Stylist Live is an annual event run by the dream team at Stylist Magazine, which is actually one of my favourite magazines ever. I pick it up for free in the underground every single week without fail and enjoy getting my fashion fix by reading it in my lunch break. Their event was held in the Business Design Centre in London, which is a huge exhibition centre in Angel and was bustling full of excited ladies, pop up stalls, inspiring talks, free pampering and quirky workshops.
As we arrived we walked past Tanya Burr which was pretty cool. I do love Tanya Burr, I think she is such a wonderful women and just so normal and relatable. She looked just as beautiful in real life as she does on her youtube channel. We then spotted Melanie C doing a talk and a quick sing on one of the stages in the main hall. It brought back all the spice girls memories!
After we got our fan girl moment with Mel C over with, we quickly headed to watch the Stylist Live Catwalk Show. The catwalk show was sponsored by Swarovski and was themed around AW16 trends, with 'Intergalactic' being my favourite trend that they showcased. We admired all the pretty glitzy clothes and it gave me some major party dress inspiration, not long until christmas party season now!
After a beautiful showcase of all things fashion, we headed downstairs to talk all things beauty! Liz Earle was doing a talk at the Dyson Stage on 'Creating a Successful Brand'. We actually had a talk booked with Liz Earle later that evening, but we jumped into listen to this one too. She gave us the low down on how she started her brand and all the hard work and grafting she has put in to build up to the successful, global brand it is today. It was really interesting to listen to and included a lot of interaction with the audience which was fun.I can also vouch for how absolutely stunning she looks. Her skin was glowing and she seemed so lovely, and emitted such a happy and healthy vibe. I will of course now be using all of her products in the hope that I age just as gracefully as she is. If I have her amazing skin at 50 years old, I would be one very happy lady!
Afterwards, we then headed to our main event. We had booked a talk at the inspiring stage called 'How to get to the Top', with Liz Earle, Belinda Parmar (tech and empathy entrepreneur) and Cassandra Stavrou (founder of Propercorn). The talk was about work/life balance, how to build a brand, the foundations of a strong brand and what is most important in your own business, passion. It was great to have three successful business women talk about their own experiences and how they have all grown their own business's, that were all so different. It was really interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There is nothing quite like hearing about other women's hard work and success stories to make you feel inspired.
They had so many other pamper stations dotted around the event. They were doing facials at the Liz Earle stand, blow dry's at the Dyson stall, and you could get your make-up professionally done at both Urban Decay and Clarins. Unfortunately we didn't have to make more use of these. I wish we would have had more time to get some more treatments. But alas, it was time to go home.
Not without a free cocktails made by Chambord first though...MmmMmm.
I left the event feeling exceptionally inspired and happy. I had such a fun evening with Maddie, it was such an incredible event and my highlight has to be listening to how Liz Earle made it to the top and grow her business into the successful global brand it is today. She is such an inspirational women, incredibly successful and her character was so full of positivity and passion. I think I may now be obsessed with her...
I wish I could have attended the event for longer or even have gone on another day too, as they had some truly amazing guests and talks on over the whole 4 days. If you are interested in having more of an idea what kind of other talks and workshops took place, they are all listed on their website here. I honestly can't wait to go back again next year. Good job Stylist!
Until Next Time, LR xx
