A Black Tie Event - Women's Dress and Accessories

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well.

This Saturday, my husband and I have been invited to a Evening Dinner and the dress code is ( Black Tie), oooo very fancy.

In one of my previous posts I mentioned I saw a dress from TK Maxx, but I wanted to wait for it to come into the store, so I could try it on. Anyway it never did, and I have been going back to the store pretty much everyday for the past month, as they have new deliveries everyday. Nothing caught my eye until the last minute and I saw this beautiful Black Halter-neck Maxi Dress. The Brand Name for this dress is The London Times.

It was £39.99 From TK Maxx, but they only had one in my local store, I was lucky to have found it. It must have been waiting for me and I'm so happy that I managed to get into a size 10, whereas other items of clothing I'm a size 12-14.

If you want to buy this dress you can buy this dress online from Macy's, as it's not available from TK Maxx online. The price of this dress is alot more than what I paid for it. The Macy's price is £71.71, so I got a bargain from TK Maxx.

It has a beautiful Halter-neck neckline with a keyhole detail at the front and back, and a button fastener at the back.

On me this dress is the perfect length, I have brought some black satin peep toe shoes with a bow on the front and the heel height is 2 inches, and it just lifts the dress off the floor, so it is full length on me which I love.

I brought some accessories from Primark to add abit of bling to my outfit, they look quite expensive once on.

My shoes I brought from Ebay and they were very reasonably priced at £12.80 free delivery, the seller is called highstreetretailer and they have a shop on Ebay.

Once I'm ready on Saturday evening I will get my husband to take some pictures of me in my outfit, so you can see what the dress looks like on.

This isn't me (haha) this is the model from Macy's - London Times Sleeveless Illusion Chevron Maxi Dress

Bracelet and Earrings from Primark - Bracelet £3.00 / Earrings £1.00

I'm planning on doing my hair in a loose bun with a jewelled hair comb in the side. I was going to have my hair down with my hair extensions in to give a bit of volume, but I saw some pictures on the internet with a lose bun and thought it will keep it off my face when I'm dancing and it's a hairstyle that I can actually do myself, so I don't need to go and pay to have an updo.

Here are some pictures of what I mean with the bun and hair comb.



 I will post pictures of my attempt once I'm ready.

Take care of yourselves and leave a comment and let me know what you think of my dress and accessories.
