A blogger friend of mine, Natalie from Definatalie, was in town to attend a fancy fashion event and asked me to help make her over for the night. She wanted to look sophisticated and glamorous but still with elements of her quirky artistic personality shining through.
So off we went to City Chic, where Natalie and I browsed through all the lovely new stock and got excited by all the polka dots. I steered Natalie towards the new Nautigal range as I felt there were some hot pieces perfect for a fashion event there.
Time to try it all on. We had arm fulls of options because you never know what will and wont work. I knew I wanted to emphasise Natalie's waist to help define her shape so you could actually see her killer curves instead of hiding it under something shapeless.
Natalie was a little afraid of the height of these babies, till she tried them on that is.
Once on she wasn't going to take them off again, these had to be hers!
Hmmmm, maybe a little too floral for a night time event?
Accessories are key to making an outfit. For rings the bigger the better in my opinion.
Oh la la, what did Natalie end up getting? Can you tell she was very excited by her new amazing outfit inside those shopping bags?
The BIG REVEAL. Natalie and I settled on the City Chic Chiffon Riviera dress $129.95, City Chic black platform heels $129.95, City Chic Vinyl cropped jacket $99.95 and a collection of City Chic accessories from in store. Doesn't she look amazing? She made her necklace herself (her artistic sensibilities shining through) and people couldn't stop complementing her all night on the amazing dress.
What do you think of Natalie's fab new outfit?
