#OOTD – The Birmingham Awards

On Friday I had the most exciting of evenings. I was a finalist in the Birmingham Awards in the catagory of best blogger, shortlisted from literally thousands down to just five. I didn’t win, but still had the most amazing night, not least because I was dressed for the occasion by one of my favourite brands Kaliko, in a dress that I can only describe as perfect. Even though I do get to go to some pretty glamorous occasions, the chance to do proper black tie was a mouth- watering prospect, and this dress just ticked every single box, in terms of colour, cut and design. People talk about dream dresses, and this was certainly mine.

The waterfall maxi dress is a semi fitted dress in chiffon. It has a faux crossover neckline with pleating detail, a waterfall draping detail on the skirt and a diamante embellishing detail on the waistband. The dress has a concealed zip fastening on the back, and there is also a sheer panel on the back, with a keyhole detailing. But the most striking detail about this dress is the colour, a deep green, almost bottle green in fact, making this such a striking change from classic black, and very memorable.

This dress is a dream to wear, and it had so many lovely and positive comments on the night, I really did love wearing it. I kept the accessories to a minimum, just a silver diamante bracelet (from my mom), silver Jimmy Choo style heels and a black velvet bag, not my number one choice, but really needed something big enough to carry my camera too.
