New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped. Before we leave the city that never sleeps its time to look back at another show from NYFW. This time its a designer with luxurious and the most stunning gowns that I’m sure we would all love to have in our wardrobes. It is of course Marchesa. Known for their extravagant and beautiful gowns made perfect for any red carpet, this collection does not disappoint.
This collection had a very elegant and feminine feel with a vision of the 1920s running through it. The beaded and embellished gowns and tops would not look out of place in the 20s era and the looks definitely had the old Hollywood style glamour theme. The hair and makeup also matched with the models sporting a soft curled look and a sultry feminine dark berry lip.
Marchesa is known for their floral designs and their wide tulle silhouettes. These norms did not escape in this collection. There was a heavy focus on poppies throughout the show with many looks incorporating the embellished floral design as well as following a red and black agenda. In addition there was also no escaping of their usual fuller sized dresses with the odd couple of sizeable gowns but other than that the collection was primarly sleek and embellished to the nines. Well Done Georgina and Keren! Check out the rest of the collection here.

Happy Friday everyone 🙂 So I was contacted by The Daily Look to get involved in their Little Black Dress: Day to Night Challenge. The Daily Look are going a little bit LBD crazy recently but who doesn’t love a good LBD, right? They have a great selection of Little Black dresses on their website for all occasions and styles to suit everyone, you can check out the fab range here . I have put together a little outfit for Day and Night using this cute LBD from the Daily Look.
For day, I have teamed this dress with an plaid shirt and some black ankle boots for that very chic but very casual look for daily wear as well as adding a cute little black bag. Then for night I have added the glitz and the glamour ooo. I have went for the black and gold combo (A true love of mine) with this amazing shimmery gold blazer to add that sparkle to the outfit as well as a simple but classy gold chain necklace and my favourite part… these gorgeous strappy peeptoe heels which are just divine. I need them now!
All of the above items I have used to put these outfits together are from the Daily Look which you can check out here, they have some sweet stuff!
So are you a lover of the LBD?
