Wearing: Ann Demeulemeester ball gown, 3.1 Philip Lim clutch, Balenciaga heels, Pearls from Claire’s

This dress is probably the most amazing thing I own; it’s been worn a couple of times on the blog but never for a special occasion, such as my birthday on Wednesday. Believe it or not it is usually much bigger with a train, but Ann gave it ties at the side to bring it up off the floor and wrap it around your waist. The pearl accessories are inspired by Chanel SS12 and are just little cheapies bought from Claire’s. They look so amazing though, no? More birthday photos coming soon!

  1. What no hyperlink to Claire’s?

    OMG Charlie you look so ridic chic!! Flawless. I can’t believe we wore this to Brawn…

    1. ACTUALLY I tried really hard to find the link but they don’t have the stick on pearls on the website. High street fail.

    2. PS – This might be my most cold, barren and upperclass post yet!

    3. Next week we go to a castle!

  2. What a stunning dress! You look so beautiful Charly! x

  3. cold, barren, hahaha someone must be really bored. anyway, the pearls are such a neat idea! Goes perfectly with the gown, especially since “casual glamour” is such a fun way to mix up the daily outfits.

    1. Thank you! I definitely want to see how I can fit the pearls into more casual wear.

      You’re the casual glamour queen in my eyes!

    1. Thanks love! I’ve been trying my best to get a tan in all tis severe heat we’ve been having over the last week, but it’s made marginal difference! Maybe it’s just because I wear a lot of black that I appear so ‘Victorian skinned’
