Nicole, Missguided and me



I have to be honest, when I was invited to check out the Nicole Scherzinger and Missguided collaboration I did get a bit nervous.

I envisaged a lot of body-conscious clothes that required a body like...well like Nicole's to carry them off. But I was mistaken. Don't get me wrong, there is quite a lot of midriff exposing going on in some of the pieces but there are also a lot of pencil length and classic silhouettes that are more wearable and sophisticated.
I got a particularly lovely bandeau dress that sucks everything in, as well as this, seen below. It's a simple white shift, reinvented and bought up to date with a sport luxe theme. I would describe it as very clean. You know me, I love things that are very minimal in both shape and detail. 

You could dress this down but I decided to wear it with one of my favourite pairs of shoes of all time...no the silver ASOS shoes had to step aside for an evening and make way for my BCBG nude booties. If you are looking for a comfortable/amazing pair of shoes then you need these in your life! 

I made the husband take these pictures before we went for drinks in Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. Even though driving to the Palm feels like you are driving to the end of the world, the pictures that you get, with the view of JBR and Marina in the background, make it totally worth it. A great spot whether you live here or are visiting.

I hope you all had a great weekend! I'll be back tomorrow - unfortunately it's a post about brushes which is probably quite boring but I bought three amazing ones in Sephora and I need to talk to people about it. I'll try and add something more interesting and colourful :)

  24. I absolutely love how the dress look on you with the ever gorgeous BCBG heels! :) How is the fit of this dress as compared to the sizing of Zara? I'm so skeptical buying dresses online as I am usually a UK size 10-12 depending on the fit.

  26. The white dress is great! I'm tempted to purchase. Do you mind me asking what size you're wearing? Terrible question I know but it's hard to judge these things!

    Also how amazing does Nicole look in all of the outfits? OMG.
