We heart this Brielle Playsuit.

kirsty doyle packaging idea

We have launched our Christmas packaging, now when we say launched and Christmas this may be a slight exhaggeration. There won’t be any glitter or sparkles just a nod in the direction of the holiday spirit in the form of a black matt card star. We will leave the reindeers and snowmen to other corporate companies..

The Brielle Playsuit has been a real #KDGIRL favourite for this AW season. The full length sleeves, open back and short tailored shorts are a winner in the style stakes.

We would suggest a few ways to wear this:

  • lace bralet // opaque tights // lace up ankle boots
  • tan // gold heels // sleeves rolled up // piles of delicate gold bracelets
  • blazer on the shoulders // black onyx neckpiece // killer black stilettos

kirsty oceane dress 3

Last minute dinner plans at 7 months pregnant mean two things;

a. what to wear?

b. how to wear it?

Seriously though, pre-pregnancy it was a case of picking up the first dress you found and throwing on a pair of killer heels. Now it takes a touch more thought. The key for me now (personally) is the underwear, it is so important for me to feel supported and streamlined. I know streamlined isn’t the best word to use to describe one’s figure but when you have new lumps and bumps (major bumps) it is difficult finding comfortable shape wear that makes you feel good.

I had a five minute lunchbreak and after running round John Lewis, to be sorely disappointed with absolutely NO pregnancy shapewear I went to Debenhams to be told again they DON’T have the pregnancy Spanx I was searching for. Dire.

I knew I only had the Oceane Dress to wear for my outing so I wasn’t leaving the store without some sort of under garment. I found the Shaping Slip in the colour Natural. I took a risk and went for the bra size I thought I was and came back to work. When I tried on the slip I would highly recommend snipping the elastic that goes around the hem to give you a bit more room to move, but apart from that this was a revelation.

The slip supported by back, gave great bust support and no VPL’s. All in all a great product, the stretch around the bump was fantastic and everything felt really secure.

When recommending shape wear to customers, especially Bridesmaids I don’t care if you are size 6 or 16 shaping lingerie is so important as it should give the illusion that you have nothing on underneath the dress and that the lines are completely smooth. (No VPL.)

The Oceane Dress is a dream to wear, both pregnant and not. It is made from a stretch scuba jersey, it pulls on over the head and has a sneaky side split. This is the perfect Christmas party dress for #KDGIRLS in any shape and a snip at £110.

We have been loving the off-the-shoulder style for many a season, if you are a true KD girl you will know that our Sabrina Dress in stretch scuba has been a classic for quite a few seasons now. With one customer recently emailing the team to say “it fits like a dream and I think it is quite possibly the nicest dress I have ever owned!”

We are now offering the Sabrina Dress in navy and pink, if you have worn your Sabrina so much, it needs updating!

We expanded on the off-the-shoulder theme this Party Season and have developed a tailored style in the Nino Dress in metallic gold lace with the luxurious scalloped edging around the neck and hemline.

As you can see Christina Hendricks is wearing her off-the-shoulder style tailored in at the waist and into a straight skirt. We love the emerald green tone of the satin dress against her porcelain skin and auburn hair. The style suits her shape perfectly, showing off every beautiful curve perfectly.

When choosing your off-the-shoulder style go for one which will highlight your curves, this style can take some serious accessorising whether it is a pair of oversized earrings or a jewelled necklace. Don’t forget this is party season after all!

Take it from me the Gabir Cape is a wardrobe must-have. Whilst the weather is sometimes bright and a slight chill in the air, a cape is the perfect go-to item. This cape is to be worn loose fit with the stand up collar, wheras the Sacha Cape is part tuexdo, part cape so has a more fitted bodice shape to it. Both equally as luxurious and glamorous.

Here is a sneaky shot of me in my Gabir Cape, this has been so useful for me as my style changes daily, I am wearing my cape with a pair of Zara trousers and a soft caramel knit.

Happy Shopping!

Today’s Dress of the Day is the Navy Mini-Penelope, the Penelope has been seen in every colour for the past few seasons but never in a mini version. Shop the Mini-Penelope in duchess satin so the stuctured frill is even more so. Wear for your work’s Christmas party and accessorise with metallic tones.

This dress is the perfect trans-seasonal piece, althought it will be perfect for your Christmas party season it will also work well in to the Spring when worn with nude accessories.

Happy Thursday!

We released a behind the scenes shot of this look from Friday’s shoot and the #kdgirls went stir crazy for it. I think everyone dreams of the Carrie (Sex and the City) moment of spinning in your frou-frou-tu-tu in Manhattan whilst a bus drives past with your face on it.. Or is that just us?

You can shop the peach tulle skirt now as part of the latest launch. The Party-Perfect collection has an array of mix and match separates, stand out dresses and luxurious fabrics that will make up your winter capsule wardrobe.

We would make this skirt work in a million ways, here it is styled with the cropped jersey tee which is a steal for £40 but works with quite a few of the Party-Perfect separates. The skirt could be styled with a cropped black mohair jumper and leather jacket or tuck in a chiffon shirt and wear a statement pair of earrings and you are good to go!

Happy tu-tu-tuesday!
