Red Carpet Ready

As much as it would be a dream come true to one day attend a real awards ceremony, sometimes you've just gotta settle for your garden, am I right?

When Boohoo got in contact and asked if I'd like to be part of their Boohoo's Best Dressed campaign, inspired by up and coming awards ceremonies, I jumped at the chance to dress up! I had a browse of the website and let's just say I chose something a little bit more villainous than my normal princess get up! 

This gorgeous thigh split maxi dress is just the one. It's absolutely beautiful, sexy and makes me feel a bit like a cross between a Bond Girl, Catwoman and Regina from Once Upon A Time. The dress itself actually comes with a gold belt, but I switched it up for a thick, elastic one to pull in the waist and give a more flattering shape. 

Dress - C/O Boohoo

Paired with a set of killer heels, you can't go wrong!

Shoes - Miss Selfridge

I have to say, I definitely chose this dress with a holiday in mind. Next month I'll be travelling to Dubai and dare I say this dress will look 100% better in the sunny climate with a skin complexion that doesn't make me look like Nearly Headless Nick. Seriously, everyone, I am a ghost right now. 

Let me know what you think of this slinky number in the comments! I absolutely love it and I know it's going straight in my suitcase for my travels!
