Choosing the perfect bridesmaid dress for all of your girls is an almost impossible task, but I have recently discovered the alessmode.com , the answer to every bride prayer. Your bridesmaids don’t have to look like clones from every other wedding. Dresses with open backs, glamorous fit-and-flare skirts and quirky transparent overlays are just a few ways to give your bridal party a fresh take.

I am going to highlight my top picks for 2017 bridesmaid dresses dress styles, as well as popular bridal-party color schemes—from beautiful pastels to neutrals.

Tiered Skirt

You can still maintain the long, soft fabrics tradition on bridesmaid dresses, but why not add just the amount of drama and try with a tiered skirt?

Sleeves

Bridesmaids dresses with sleeves have the latest have the latest design catering for popular wedding fashion.  A sleeve can has several style options that include illusion or cape sometimes decorated with beading details or embroidered with lace. Here are some of my favorites, looking at the sleeves

One-Shoulder Dresses

In 2016 one-shoulder dresses burst onto the fashion scene and there’s been no sign of slowing for this trend. This has become one of my favorite looks & will definitely make my list on the bridesmaid stylish looks. Whether they are long bridesmaid dresses or short bridesmaid dresses off the shoulder bridesmaid dress is a fashion trend that is still here.

Carvela Kurt Geiger Shoulder Bag

Carvela bagCarvela dina mini bagCarvela Kurt GeigerCarvela

So I have been making a couple of purchases specifically for the spring and summer season. This year my focus has been on bags for some reason  just recently  I updated my collection here   Mini Shoulder Bag Collection.

I have been a fan of Kurt Geiger  bags, they have the most amazing quality irrespective of whether its leather or synthetic. Me and my sister already have bags from this designer and they still look as brand new as the day we bought them. We always get our bags from SecretSales.com because they offer designer and well reliable/trusted brands at a highly discounted price.

The latest addition I got I feel in love with was because of the colour it is such as typical springy colour and that what I need. The material for the bag is synthetic but the shape and way it woven  and designed allows it to hold the shape. I got the  bag here Kurt Geiger I think it is now sold out however these bags always come back into stock on the site.

I am always looking for new bag brands to try out because I want bags that will last me a long time. Any designers you can recommends? x

Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks And…..

Colorpop lipstainMary Kay ConcealarswatchNo 7 lipstick

Finally,I got my hands on some colourpop lipsticks I have wanted to try some of their products for the longest time ever but here in the UK they are not easy to get a hold of. It’s some long process of purchasing and getting them delivered to the UK (last time I checked unless if things have changes). Anyways I got these two colourpop lipsticks from one of my best friends who brought a stash when she came back from her trip in America.

Colourpop lipstick in “Scrooge”: this is not just a matte lipstick its ultra matte which means you will not be able to avoid the dryness you usually experience with matte formulas. With this you have to put a coat of gloss or Vaseline before you apply it because it is very drying. The color itself is so bright and highly concentrated you won’t need to apply it twice over your lips.And it does last the whole you don’t need to touch it up it will not budge. You can get it from the official site Colourpop.com (however it doesn’t seem to be available right now) or even Amazon.

Colourpop lipstick in “bad habit”:  This again is in an ultra matte formula but you know what sometimes beauty requires being uncomfortable and a little sacrifice so it is worth it. Apparently you shouldn’t put a base like Vaseline or lip-gloss because it interferes with the super-long wear of the lipstick. The colour is almost similar to “scrooge” though I would say it is a little bit lighter than “scrooge”. This is currently still available on the official site so you can purchase it directly Colourpop “bad habit”.  I am excited to try use these two lipsticks over the spring/summer period the colors are just perfect for that.

I also have two extra products that I thought I might as well include in this post because they are related.

No7 Lipstick in “Chic”: This is a high-street brand part of Boots if I am correct. They have a range of their own No7 moisture drench lipsticks that has over 10 colours to choose from.  I love the formula of this because it’s very moisturizing you don’t even feel like you are wearing a lipstick. The color is gorgeous for wearing alone as well as mixing it up with other colors for example mix with “bad habit” or even Mac’s “sin”. You can get this Boots as well as see the other selections they have.

Mary Kay “perfecting concealer”:  I am not a big fan of concealers because I often feel like they leave your face very cakey and artificial looking.  However with this one I have found it is very light and does the job very well of hiding any discoloration and so forth without making it obvious that you have a range of makeup products on your face. My shade is specifically ” deep bronze”, another thing I like about it is you can use it for natural everyday looks as well as highly contoured looks for those special events or times when you do feel like really going all out with your makeup. You can get this on the official site Marykay.com.

What lipstick or beauty products are you most looking forward to playing around with this spring/summer.
