It's no surprise that I absolutely love to get all glammed up, and I'm not just talking about your standard Saturday night out, I'm talking abut those occasions where all the stops are put out, and you really can look as glam and fabulous as you want. I think this stems from my love of cruises, as formal nights at sea are such a big thing, and it's all about who can wear the sparkliest dress and the most show stopping shoes, it's not for everyone, but it's probably one of my favourite occasions to dress for, and to admire everyone else's attire too! But Weddings, proms and such all come close, and for these occasions it's worth investing in a really nice timeless piece that you know you can bring out of your wardrobe for years to come.
Since last year Coast Stores has been my go to for formal outfits for a cruise, their selection of well put together dresses, tops, shoes and accessories are all elegant and sophisticated. I bought a sequin top and a matching long length skirt last year from Coast that honestly make me feel like a princess every time I wear them. The best thing about Coast is that they're easily accessible on the high street, but at the premium end of the spectrum, so when you're at your special occasion you're much less likely to bump into someone with the same outfit on too!
I could honestly spend my whole wage on new formal outfits each year, and with more of my friends getting married in the coming years I think I've got a pretty good excuse to expand my Coast collection further, don't you think?! As you can see from my wishlist (all items linked above), I was drawn to all the sequins and pastel colours, I was never a fan of maxi dresses or skirts until last year, but I find them so sophisticated whatever your age. Coast make such timeless pieces like the sleeveless sequin top, this is such a classic style that could be pulled out for so many different events, and teamed with a whole host of different skirts or trousers. It's definitely worth investing in evening pieces like this from Coast, with the amount of new stuff I've been purchasing recently, I think I'll be set for life!
Which piece is your favourite? Are you a fan of Coast? Do you have any upcoming events to get dressed up for?
