Gorgeous Couture

Dress - Gorgeous Couture // Shoes - Topshop // Midi rings - eBay

Hey dolls, 

Eeeep its just 9 sleeps till Christmas now - how exciting! I can't wait to go home and spend some quality time with the familia and just have a general break from work. I've been super organised this year and got all my presents in advance (thank god). Last year was too stressful as I decided to leave it all till last minute as per. Honestly, running round Manchester like a headless chicken is not the one. So I'm happy I can just chill out till I break up from work and enjoy the build up to Christmas day :)

On another note, I was absolutely thrilled when an email popped up from Gorgeous Couture asking me if I would like to be part of their December blogger edit! I always love receiving their blogger edit emails and oggling over some beaut bloggers in GC's latest designs! To be asked to be part of this too, I was completely over the moon and SO excited to wear one of their gorgeous dresses. When my parcel arrived I couldn't wait to get inside and ripped open the wrapper as quick as I could (you can't wait around for a dress like this ;). The dress came beautifully wrapped in tissue paper in a black box with a luxurious black velvet hanger - what more could I ask for? I love the fact there is so much thought put into the packaging and you really feel like you are getting a luxury item! Fit for a princess ;)

When I saw the dress I totally fell in love. I'm obsessed with white dresses, I think they look so expensive and are look amazing with loads of accessories and at the same time can look good with just minimal jewellery. I tried this dress on with a few statement necklaces, but decided I preferred the minimal look with some gold midi rings and a slick of M.A.C's RiRi Woo on my lips.

My favourite part of the dress is the stunning cut out back, which I think makes this dress super sexy and reminds me of something worthy of a red carpet. I can't tell you how much I love this dress and I can't wait to wear it for something special! You definitely get your money's worth with Gorgeous Couture - from the super high quality fabric to the beautiful packaging, I really couldn't ask for more! The dress I am wearing is the 'Freya Maxi Dress' which you can find HERE.

Have you bought anything from Gorgeous Couture before?

Dress - Fashion Union* // Boots - Primark // Clutch - River Island // Jacket - Koo-Ture // Watch - Born Prettys*

Hey Dolls, 

Hope everyone had a good weekend! I'm having one of them days where everything goes wrong and I just want to crawl back into bed, wahh! 

I wanted to share with you this gorgeous PU shift dress I received off Fashion Union which I can't wait to wear for the party season! I love a bit of PU leather and when I first saw these dresses I knew I would have to get my hands on one at some point! They are so easy to style and you can never go wrong with a LBD can you really? I can't find the dress on-line but they have a very Burberry-esque heart print one which is gorgeous PLUS FU are offering 30% off at the moment so I'm thinking of putting a cheeky little order in myself! 

I came across the cut out shoe boots in Primark that had been reduced from £25 to £10 !!! Yes, you read it right - £10. They are the absolute spit of the Rihanna for RI pair which I loved but they sold out so quick I didn't manage to get my little celebrity endorsed obsessed hands on them. They also have the black & cream version on sale too, however as lovely as they are I thought the one pair was enough (I have too many shoes I don't wear!). I found these in the Manchester Market Street Primark but I'm sure they are about everywhere! 

The fur jacket was something I bought from work spontaneously and I absolutely love it. I have got so much wear out of this already and is the perfect day to night coat that looks good but keeps you warm at the same time. There are loads of gorgeous coats/capes on-line at the moment, definitely worth a look! You can check them out HERE

I decided to give this outfit a pop of colour with the RI clutch and pink jelly wrist watch. I was very kindly sent this watch from 'Born Prettys' that are an on-line company that sell all the accessories you could think of from phone cases to bracelet watches. This LED watch is super cheap and as well as having a wide range of products to choose from I think these watches are great for adding a pop of colour to your outfit. I even have a 10% discount code you can use despite the prices being so reasonable already - ASHLEIGHGC10 just pop it in at the check out! You can also find my watch HERE.

Hope everyone has a fab week - nearly Christmas Eeeek!
