Saturday Night Sevilla...

Last night I finally got to wear my Sevilla dress... Yay! *Claps*


Me and the hubs went out for a lovely meal to break our fast (Ramadan Kareem), I must say I did feel slightly OTT with the bright colour, but the restaurant was so posh & lovely that I fit in very well! :) The dress actually looks more striking in person, the silk chiffon just flows beautifully with every movement. I have to say A LOT of women were staring at me.. (do you think that was a good thing or bad? lol)


Sevilla Dress: Isabella Oliver
Reversible wrap Belt: Isabella Oliver
Shoes: Nine West
Clutch: Vintage
Earrings: Peruvian - Chapel Market

Check out Isabella Oliver here: However, I checked the site and this dress is no longer there?But, the new Autumn / Winter collection has just launched which looks great. I particularly like the outerwear.


I tried to tone down the colour by wearing black dinky heels & black earrings, here's how I styled it...


With regards to makeup, omg I had literally 30 mins to get myself ready, in that time I had to iron, do my makeup & my hair. I did manage it, but I'm not so sure how.

Face: Revlon colorstay applied lightly with 187, Bourjous gold bronzing powder
Cheeks: Bodyshop cream bronzing stick & Bodyshop warm dusk powder.
Eyes: Carbon smoked out all over the lid, Nars albatross to highlight. UD 24.7 liner in Zero on upper & lower lashline. Bodyshop super volume mascara in black.
Lips: Bodyshop listick #64 mixed with Gosh Darling. L'oreal Cappuccino lipliner. Ooo & I dabbed some Carmex on in the car! :)



For my hair... I just started backcombing in a hurry, big hair always looks good. I clipped the front bit back with some clips and voila.



I would like to have spent a little more time on my eyes... but oh well, sometimes less is more! :)
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! x X x

Absolutely stunning! The dress is so Hollywood!!! As in the Oscars gala. The colour reminds me of the one Heidi Klum wore once. Do you remember?
Makeup and hair look beautiful, and accesorizing is perfect as usual.

Trisha said...

They were staring because you look so pretty in the dress!

Liparazzi said...

I know what you mean about wondering why other women stare but usually it's just that they think you look nice and they're checking out your makeup/clothes etc. I don't think it's a bad thing, I find myself doing it sometimes

legseleven7 said...

JoJo71 said...

Stunning! As for women staring, from my point of view I only stare when I think a woman looks beautiful and I'm sussing out how to copy her, if I think someone looks rubbish I very quickly look away and pull a 'what where you thinking' face! xx Jo (formerly make up crunch)

bubblegarm said...

*~mad munky~* said...

You look fabulous! The colour of the dress is gorgeous - I'm not surpised people were looking! ;o)

Austrian_Babe said...

Beautiful! I think the women were staring because red is such a daring color, lots of women would not be confident enough to wear such a color

Naomi said...

OMG! I love that dress on you; it's such a fabulous colour. I think that the makeup looks perfect and complements the outfit.

UnicornSmile said...

I'm always checkin out other women - just to see what they're wearing. I probably look at girls more that boys for that reason :) so I would assume that is a good thing. Dress looks fab!! :)))

Katrina said...

Sima said...

You look stunning in the dress. The color of the dress is amazing. Women always check each other out. I would not worry about it. The dress color is soo vibrant is hard not to look. I would take it as a compliment.
