Evans – My picks from an AMAZING sale

Loving the online sales? The wait until you visit the Evans sale. This one is absolutely amazing with HUGE reductions on so many items, including the glorious Clements Ribeiro collection. This sale will basically sort out your summer wardrobe, and will then also provide you with items that will see you right into the A/W with ease.

I couldn’t resist dipping into it, getting the Clements Ribeiro ‘Joan’ dress, which can only have been named for the Christina Hendricks character in Mad Men, and I am sorely tempted by so many other items..but I am trying to be good.

So here are my tops picks – but get there quick, these won’t last the weekend.

Coast- getting ready for the Wedding season.

It’s only February, and already I have three invites to weddings. Wedding season is not yet upon us, and I’m already dreading the ‘What do I wear?’ problems.

You see, weddings used to be so easy. People got married in a church. You picked a floral dress and a big hat and you couldn’t really go wrong. Now, people get married in hotels, stately homes, on beaches and occasionally in churches, and suddenly you are faced with a wedding minefield.

Thankfully Coast always seem to have something that will suit. So whether you are opting for a full length and fabulous dress, a flirty floral number or something simple and sophisticated, you are sure to be able to find the dress for you at Coast. Here are some of my favourites from the new season’s range.

This Molina dress would be beautiful for a formal wedding where  full length was part of the dress code.

Maybe the ceremony is going to be an early evening affair? I think the stunning Daniela dress in navy would move seamlessly from early evening into a night filled with romantic dancing.

This Jimena shift dress is just the archetypical dress for a Spring/Summer church wedding. The print is pretty and playful and the shift style is just such a classic look.

This gorgeous Vida tube dress is the sort of thing a certain Kate Middleton might opt for when attending one of the numerous society weddings that seem to pop up every week. Just add a fascinator and a beautiful brooch to be wedding perfect.

With so many weddings having a black and white code, how about the chic Lois cocktail dress. Perfect for day or night occasions.

Coast have Party Dressing all sewn up.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Push Pr press day last  week, which took place at the sumptuous W Hotel, near Leicester Square. Amongst all the fabulous Spring/Summer ranges on display, there were little pockets of glitter  and glamour that were yet to hit the rails this season. One such collection was the Coast Capsule party dress collection, a limited edition of five exquisite party dresses. This was launched online and in 10 selected stores nationwide  on Thursday, and promises to be a massive hit in the upcoming party season.

The collection covers all styles and trends, from ‘…draped to perfection column gowns, sleek, sophisticated sequins and irresistible cocktail dresses in light as air chiffons…’

There are long and short styles, sequined wrap dresses and strapless column dresses. The Elita maxi screams Hollywood, whilst Florissa dress comes in both a maxi and mini version. The Marissa dress is your perfect fail-safe LBD, whilst the Perla dress is your statement piece, with a fabulous wrapover style.
