Don’t know what to wear for a Christening? Is it… a boy? …a girl? …unsure? At Kirsty Doyle we have chosen 3 perfect dresses to help dress you for this occasion. For this look, Beth (one of our KD styled up girls) looked conservative but chic, girly but sophisticated and demure but playful. Shooting by the suitcase area on Hope Street, this was a perfect opportunity to capture the summer weather in the UK.
Blue Rica – This baby blue plunge neck dress is complementary for a summertime celebration. Team it with nude heels and a loose wave hair style to hide the plunge.
Pink Esme – Be pretty in pink in this lace paneled fitted dress. With a top knot bun it looks effortlessly chic and shows off the shoulder detailing.
Peach Penelope – Ruffle it up with this pencil dress. A lovely colour for a Christening if you do not wish to go for the obvious blue and pink. Cut below the knee, it balances the expose of the top half of the outfit and the top bun helps elongate your height.
When you are attending your next Christening, the KD team think it’s best to let the dress do the talking and keep everything else simplistic. Pastel tone are perfect for this occasion so check the KD store website to our summer collection. Comment and share your favorite dress you think would be suitable and remember balloons are not just for kids.
“The middle of a work week (Wednesday); used in the context of climbing a proverbial hill to get through a tough week.”
It’s the middle of the week and you are on your lunch hour, what better way to spend your time than a spot of online shopping. Our KD classic FIFI dress is back this season in hot pink, every season we change the FIFI to be short, long, pleated or pencil. Each season it is a huge hit. We have styled the FIFI with a pair of red classic patent Louboutins and the Kate Moss for Rimmel matching red lipstick. As the weather is getting a little bit colder we would put the Shiva Sleeveless Jacket with it.
This seaon’s FIFI is mini length or mid-thigh so a hint of a tan would help blast away those winter blues. I couldn’t get an appointment with my normal beautician last weekend for my tan top up so I tried this tan from Fake Bake, 60 minute self tan liquid. My short review is that everyone from a fake tan expert to a newbie should own this, it comes with a mit and gloves and dries in about 2-3 minutes. As promised the tan comes out in 60 minutes, usually the time needed to apply my make-up, style my hair and wait for a cab. This should be on everyone’s beauty must-have list.

You may remember if you are avid readers of the blog that I featured Charlotte Peacock’s bridesmaids before. As part of the Real Brides section of the blog I want to feature the finished pictures from each bespoke bride/bridesmaid in all of their beautiful glory.
I love these pictures as the hair, make-up and accessories all finish each look perfectly. Charlotte kept the make-up feminine and dewy with each girl having a bouncy up do. The jewellery was minimal and the nude Louboutins make the girls legs looks super long!
