Gorgeous Couture Pregnancy Blogger Edit & Dress Review

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the luxury British fashion brand, Gorgeous Couture, asking if I would be interested in taking part in their 'Bloggers Edit' feature; this time focusing on pregnant bloggers. Of course I jumped at the chance! I was asked to choose my favourite dress and send over my measurements to take advantage of the exclusive Made to Measure service they offer, which is free of charge by the way; if you're in need of the perfect fit for a special occasion it's a brilliant service to make use of! Once that was done I just had to wait for my custom made dress to arrive, which it did, wrapped and boxed beautifully ready for me to style up.

I went for the 'Bailey Dress' in yellow, as I thought the one shoulder and ruched detailing would be very flattering draped around my baby bump, and would show off the design of the dress well. The Bailey also comes in seven other colours, but I chose yellow to make the most of the last little bit of sunshine this year! The material of the dress is truly luxurious; lovely thick, Italian jersey - the brand's signature fabric, and is double lined making for an ultra smooth silhouette and is practically seamless. I also decided on this style as it is an extremely versatile and adaptable style: perfect for glamming up for a night out or toned down with tights and a smart blazer for a more professional feel. I made the most of the weather by keeping my ensemble quite simple, mostly just focusing on the dress and opting for a lightweight jacket to tie in with the coral colour on the sandals, as well as an oversized clutch bag and a colour pop of blue with earrings and statement ring. I do love colour, so a beautiful dress such as this was never going to be paired with simple black, so I thought these shoes were the ideal accessory, complimenting the yellow of the dress with two other colours to play around with. What do you think?















What I'm Wearing: The 'Bailey' Dress: Gorgeous Couture, clutch bag & ankle strap sandals: Both Primark, ring: Topshop.

Thank you so much to the ladies at Gorgeous Couture for my beautiful dress, and especially to Amy who has arranged everything; I've really enjoyed styling it up for the Blogger's Edit! :)
