I'll be honest, Pete and I never really make a big deal of Valentines day. I always get him a card and a silly little something but it's not big on our agenda, probably in the main because it's also my little sister's birthday. As we all know though I will take any opportunity to dress in something sexy and sparkly and this gorgeous Miami dress from Gemma Collins definitely fits the bill!
Curve skimming and sparkly, this baby wouldn't seem out of place in Jessica Rabbit's wardrobe. With flattering ruching to hide any unwanted lumps and bumps this is a very flattering dress despite being a bodycon style. The central glitter panels also adds that illusion dress style trick of elongating your body and emphasising the curves of your silhouette, as well as just being darn fabulous and sparkly! I was also really impressed by the quality of this style, it's lined and made from nice thick and stretchy fabric so you feel nice and secure and the adjustable straps also make it easier to avoid any accidental boob spillage!!! What I really can't get over is that this gorgeous style is currently on sale for just £24.99 which I think is a terrific deal for a dress that is so drop dead gorgeous and so well made.
I teamed the dress with another beautiful Gemma Collins piece, the Brazil kimono. Now when this arrived I must admit that I was a bit 'oh another kimono' but then I put it on and was so so impressed! I just adore the shape with the dipped front and the semi sheer fabric is soft and light and wonderful with a gorgeous bold print. Cleverly the fabric from the solid black collar to the bottom of the points at the front are doubled over and sewn to add some extra weight which means it will always keep it's lovely shape skimming over your tum in two points that again flatter a larger belly and elongate your body - such a simple but smart detail! Well done Gemma!
I must say as someone who has not tried any of Gemma's pieces before that I'm ever so impressed with both of these items and I'll definitely be trying more in the future - I've got my eye on this baby next!
