Curves rule the Red Carpet!


If you’re anything like us, when we hear the words ‘Awards Ceremony’, the words ‘RED CARPET DRESSES’ immediately springs to the front of our mind. Fashion first, awards later! It was clear to see that all eyes were on the curvy and ever so fabulous ladies of the silver screen at this week’s Emmy’s. Don’t worry if you missed all the glitz and glamour, we just HAD to share a number of our favourite dresses.

Best known to us for her legendary performance in Bridesmaids, Melissa looks absolutely stunning in a custom made black ball gown skirt worn with a basic black top, creating a glamorous, modern look with a rock chick feel.

There’s not one thing we don’t LOVE about this dress. The colour suits the actress and writer’s complexion perfectly, the halter neck and metallic detailing gives this dress a modern feel whilst enhancing her gorgeous hourglass figure.



Orange Is The New Black’s Dascha Polanco, Danielle Brooks and Adrienne C. More


One of the hottest programmes of the year, Orange Is The New Black certainly had the hottest style on the red carpet at this year’s Emmys, they may not have won an Emmy, but they certainly won the style award. Dascha Polanco wears a white strapless princess gown with beaded waist detail and a statement necklace, Danielle Brooks also opted for a white halter neck with a netted bodice and sexy side split; Adrianne C. Moore wears a stunning flared bustier and a sparkling floor length skirt.

The Wedding Guest Dress


It’s time to banish our summer prints to the back of the wardrobe and look forward to what a new season brings: the need for a new wedding guest dress…or two. Here’s a glimpse of must have styles that are perfectly suited for both the ceremony and reception. We’ve rounded up three gorgeous styles you can wear long after the I Do’s. 

Body Con Peplum- Flattering, hugging your curves in all the right places, with a feminine yet classic finish. A wardrobe must have for your Wedding Guest collection, to move into the Autumn/Winter trends, opt for a warm mulberry or maroon colour to make the dress pop.  

The Prom Dress- If you’re looking for a gorgeous, vintage inspired style, look no further. Fun, flirty and ready to go from ceremony to reception with just a touch of lipstick. A style that always finds its way in season, you’ll be able to wear the prom dress for many a night on the dance floor to come. 

2 in 1 Cape Pencil Dress- With a two tone cropped cape top overlay and matching skirt finish. The 2 in 1 Cape Pencil dress from Boutique Plus range truly shakes up the LBD. Ideal for those who love a classic colour and cut. Wear with statement shoes and a clutch bag and be wedding guest ready.  





Three different styles that will take you from wedding guest, to the office and happy hour.
