Dress: Chi Chi
Heels: Kurt Geiger
Bag: Tula (TKMaxx)
Nails: Jacava 'Black Forest Gateau'
 Lipstick: Chanel 'La Deseree'
When you look at these outfit photos can you please picture me having a nice, glowy tan instead of being as white as a sheet? I'm planning on wearing this Chi Chi 'Paris' dress to my summer ball which is months away but there's no harm in being prepared- right? I really like the fit of it, it's very flattering and thankfully isn't too long or short which can often happen with this style of dress. I am wearing it with my favourite ever Kurt Geigers, you can't go wrong with a super high black heels with this sort of dress. They're suede so have a slightly softer look to them than if they were a normal leather or a patent.
On my nails is a new Jacava nail polish in the shade 'Black Forest Gateau'. It's such a lovely red berry shade which applies really evenly and opaquely- you could probably get away with only having one coat if you didn't have the time or patience for two coats! Unfortunately though, I have only had it on for one day and already chipped on three of my nails- even with using my favourite Seche Vite top coat and Orly Bonder base coat.

What do you think of my Chi Chi dress? Should I wear it for my Summer Ball?



*The Chi Chi dress and Jacava nail polish were sent to me to feature in a
blog post. This however does not influence my opinion on these products
and itis 100% honest as always.
