I remember visiting Lipsy when I was a younger teenager, walking into the store and being entranced by perfect dresses, bright colours, and jewelled accessories. I longed to own every single thing, but at age 14 with £20 pocket money a month, it’s difficult to buy your bus fare for the month let alone an entire shop.
I’m so happy to have Lipsy as my first lookbook blog post; this is the first one I’ve ever done so don’t judge me too harshly! These photos are taken with my Canon camera, by someone who is not a professional, and it’s very difficult to take outfit photos and not include your face. I am soon to be investing in an Olympus Pen, and when I eventually start showing my face, photos will be a lot better/easier to take!I adore fashion and so I’ve finally taken the plunge and decided to begin doing lookbook blog posts as I love reading and looking at them, so I thought why not?!
This first outfit is such a gorgeous and versatile look. It’s very sophisticated and fitted, so it would be perfect for a day at work if your job entails you looking smart and dressed up. But it would also be a perfect look for after work drinks on a Friday, where you don’t want to be in your flat pumps and slouchy jumper, but you also don’t want to be rocking an embellished mini dress in the office.
This ribbed lace up jumper is a beautiful copper brown shade, and can be worn with a pencil skirt, jeans, or anything else that has inspired you.
I’ve styled this with a pair of fitted trousers with a faux leather trim on the belt loops,
and zipped bottoms, finished off with a gorgeous pair of scalloped court shoes from the Kardashian Kollection with Lipsy.
(Excuse the lighting, it’s making my feet look two different colours but I can assure you they’re not!)
Unforunately, the shoes were so popular they’re now out of stock however I’ve found an alternative pair below.

The next and last outfit is this beautiful sequinned, mesh dress from the Michelle Keegan collection at Lipsy. This dress is so beautiful and special, with long mesh sleeves, sequinned nude and black applique, and a low back.
This dress was also unfortunately so popular it’s now out of stock so I have linked a very similar one below.
