A floral affair...

I was very kindly asked if I'd like to review a couple of bits from the SS14 Claire Richards Collection for Fashion World. Umm yeh I do. This is the part where I get to brag about meeting her and how I unashamedly love Steps. Cue gratuitous opportunity to show a picture of me and Claire again...

Just hanging with my best buddy Claire. 

So the SS14 range is of course full of colour and lighter fabrics, swooshy maxi's and cute prom dresses. I went for this beautifully embroidered dress and fab peep toe shoes. I really wanted this amazing white coat too but it wasn't available at the time so I will have to try and purchase that a little later! 


It's really rather bloody beautiful isn't it? It's a tulip shape which I love and yes, it has POCKETSSSS.  It's a perfect knee length and has a zip to the back. The sleeves come just above the elbow. 


I ordered the 22 (UK) and found it true to size. It is a fitted dress, so if you do prefer a bit more room, then I would size up, but it really is a great fit. It has some stretch to it so it's very comfortable. The embroidery is so beautiful and the dress is great quality.


The shoes are insanely high but I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable and sturdy they felt. I'm presuming that's because of the platform. I'm really impressed with the outfit. Top marks to Claire and Fashion World!
