Dressing For The Occasion | Little Mistress*

Well guys. Well. I've been soooo excited to share this post with you, but The Rona has thrown so many spanners in the works when it's come to getting it out there 😩😂 First of all I was self-isolating due to having symptoms, then all the events I was planning on showcasing these lil beauts to were cancelled and then, yeno - our eventual lockdown kicked in just as my self-isolating finished... which meant shooting these outfits in pretty blossom-filled locations = impossible.

But I [have seemingly already managed to] digress... I should probably start this post at the beginning, before spiralling off on some COVID-19 ramble. And as you may have guessed from the title, today's post is a fashion-based one; featuring some gorgeous picks from one of my favourite occasionwear brands ever; Little Mistress.

If I ever have an important event coming up - say an awards ceremony, wedding or christening, Little Mistress are my GO TO. I adore their dresses - a mix of mini, midi and beautiful floor-length gowns - all beautifully embellished and top quality. Legit I wore a peach, full length Little Mistress dress to a friend's wedding a few years ago, a pink & lilac halterneck LM maxi to another friend's wedding last year and a LM green floor length maxi to a NYE party in like 2014; and all of them - to this day - are in pristine condition. 

Before The Rona, I had a christening, awards ceremony / ball and at least one wedding I was planning on glamming up with Little Mistress for... but now, we'll have to see. In the meantime, I have these BEAUTIFUL dresses I was very kindly gifted from the brand - which I'm fully intending on shooting on me and featuring lots on my socials - but which today, will be featured using stock images instead. AGAIN ALL THANKS TO YOU, RONA.

In no particular order, let's kick this round-up of absolute style GOALS off. In fact no. Scrap that. I'm going to kick off with my favourite piece from my Little Mistress haul; which [provided The Rona] gets its arse under control, I''m 99% sure I'll wear to one of my best friend's weddings this year. 

The dress I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. The dress I didn't expect to be my favourite - but floored my expectations with its fit. 

THIS ONE. The Little Mistress Aliza Navy Sweetheart Maxi Dress*. GUYS I'M IN HARDCORE LOVE WITH IT. 

Now, obviously I liked this dress a lot from the get go, or I wouldn't have picked it, but it literally blew me away when I tried it on. The fit on the top & the shoulders / waist is so flattering and pretty; really feminine with the sweetheart shaping and bardot / off the shoulder detail. The split up the leg  adds a sexy detail and makes it perfect for Summer weddings where a full maxi can be a bit too hot. Ventilation, huns.

I absolutely love it. True to size, great fit, amazing quality. I'm super glad I chose this one, as it nearly didn't make the cut [honestly, just have a lil scroll through their website. It's so hard to choose - I want it all!]

Next up is this beautiful, dusky pink Little Mistress Phoebe Canyon Rose Floral Hand-Embellished Maxi Dress* - which is the prettiest, most princessy dress everrrrrr. And my second wedding guest dress for 2020 - I'm torn really, I just wanna wear all these dresses immediately. But for the wedding I'm [hopefully] going to be able to attend, I'll definitely be wearing either the first dress or this one - this one I might wear to a christening I've been invited to, but which is a bit touch & go . The dress is a great fit, with stunning detailing and a beautiful waist; really flattering and amazing quality.

Last up is this striking lil number, the Little Mistress Luisa Marsala Lace Plunge Maxi Dress*. I adore scallop edges & lace (they're my two absolute aesthetic faves) and the detailing around the waistline on this dress looked super flattering. So, so pretty, right? The detailing and quality of this dress is, just like with the others, fantastic. I just think I need to try it on with a different bra, as the twins struggled fitting into it initially. I'll report back with photos as soon as I can - and some of this madness has died down so I can get decent snaps!
