Last night was the Law Society Christmas do at my University, i.e. the perfect excuse to wear my new beautiful embellished dress by Lashes of London! The Ramona dress has been featured in the press after being worn on the X Factor by contestant Ella Henderson, and I 100% think it deserves the attention as it is a stunning piece - I got so many compliments! The dress comes with shoulder pads inbuilt, however I chose to remove them (extremely easy to do without damaging the dress, and it will be no problem to put them back if I want to) as I have fairly square shoulders and so accentuating them is not something which I think suits me. However, if you don't have this problem then the square shoulders combined with the embellishment make it a real statement dress whilst the more understated lower half of the dress keeps it classy and elegant at the same time.
Last night I wore the Ramona dress with a simple pair of blue court shoes which matched the colour of some of the sequins in the shoulders of my dress (£8 from Primark), and of course I used my beautiful Vivvy W handbag!
The dress is quite pricey at £115, but if you have a special occasion lined up then it's worth splashing out on and you can get 10% off your first order with Lashes by following the link at the top of their homepage. I would say that the sizing of the dress is true to size or if anything a little large - I am wearing a size 6 here and it fits, however it is not tight to my skin so if you prefer your dresses tight then I would recommend buying a size down.
