So it was my birthday this weekend Yey! And here I was thinking how boring it will be to be stuck at home? However it was wonderful!
My favorite flowers were delivered from Appleyard London . The kitchen was closed. We got takeaway, went for a drive and i enjoyed dressing up, catching up with family & the ones that are dear to me and there was cake followed by Prosecco (lots of it, Ahem!)
One thing that made me feel truly special was this dress by Vila Clothes
This Vila Vifsateny Midi Dress in dusty cedar is the dress of dreams for me. The colour itself so beautiful it compliments my skin perfectly. This dress is also available in navy, but the dusty cedar is definitely a winner. The cut of the silhouette is quite flattering due to the ruching at the waist and the wrap look of the hem looks fabulous when you walk , It is a complete party outfit in its own right. One thing i love about this dress is that the draped effect of the skirt which is quite secure, so there is no chance of you having a Marilyn Monroe moment.
Because the dress is shiney i kept my makeup bronze and glowy. My wedges are from New look and the bag is from River island ( RI monogram tape front bag) I accessorised with my Swarovski bracelet in rose gold and a rose gold heart chain from Lovisa jewellery

“As a woman gets older, it’s more about style than fashion. A woman knowing herself more and more, and looking for new things, is getting into her own personal style, being more than just a fashion addict. I’m interested in that.” —Nicolas Ghesquière
Let’s talk about the fabric, It is a beautiful and dense satin which is why the fall of the skirt is so beautiful. I also find that satin is usually really unforgiving as a fabric so you need to have the right lingerie with it and if you are worried about certain parts of your body looking out of shape like i felt with my mom belly until last year, finer satin with a tight fit silhouette is something you should be careful with.
However, the Vila Vifsateny Midi Dress is so easy to carry , the fabric being so dense it is a bit more forgiving than your regular satin. Also the ruching at the waist makes it absolutely the perfect dress for a party or a wedding. The dress features adjustable straps and zip closure on the side.
The fabric is made of 100% Polyester which is totally sustainable. If you are not sure why it is read my post on sustainability in fashion. That sums up my birthday a different one this year due to the lockdown but nice nonetheless. Until next time Xx
