Red Lips; Red Hair Steps Out In Fanny Crown Paris

Good Morning my lovelies!

A while back I received word from the lovely Amy over at Fanny Crown Paris, inviting me to be a part of a competition they are running for bloggers. I was intrigued so I quickly had a flit around their site, before replying to the email telling them I was in! How much fun am I going to have styling one of their a-mazing dresses?!  If you are a fellow blogger and want to hop on the bandwagon, you can find all the details, rules and other notable tidbits on their Contest Information Page

What They Say:

How to join the contest:
All you need to do is pick a dress from our collection and tell us why you like the style, how you will style the dress (e.g. makeup, accessories, etc) and the occasion you would wear it. It's that simple.

Prizes up for grabs:

  • 1 x Grand Prize: Write an article on any dress and get a chance to win the dress free of charge, shipping fee included!
  • 3 x Exceptional Articles: Win a 100€ voucher for exceptionally written articles.
  • Unlimited x Qualified Articles: Get a 50€ voucher for any qualified articles. We have up to 97% approval rate.

When you see the dress I've chosen to style, you may be thinking "What the hell, Amy?!", but I couldn't help myself! It was like a siren call. Anything baroque and show-stopping grabs my attention and makes me go all "magpie". It's just so fabulously glitzy, and seeing as I have an end of year ball to attend, for college, it would be the perfect ensemble to step out in!

Before I give it all away, I want to talk about the in-built features that come with ordering a dress from Fanny Crown. 

When you pick and immediately fall in love with one of Fanny Crowns jaw-dropping dresses, there is a feature to customize your chosen gown. This means you can give all your measurements (Hips, Waist, Bust, Height and the Hollow of your neck to the floor) and have your dress tailored to fit you exactly. How cool is that? Another awesome little note to remember is ALL of the Fanny Crown Paris dresses come with a built in bra so you need not worry about any "slips of the nips"!

You can also pick from a multitude of colors that are absolutely to-die-for! However, being me, and being Red Lips; Red Hair, I opted for a stunning burgundy and silver number with a low back that I'm pretty sure will give my boyfriend heart failure!! 

Without further ado, I give you my pick: The Baroque Sequins Burgundy Strapless Designer Dress. Grab a bib, you're going to drool!

At the center of this piece we have the absolutely glorious handmade Baroque Sequins Burgundy Strapless Designer Dress. I love the pattern on it, because it really reminds me of the many hours I spent in Art History. To this day I still have a penchant for all things Baroque or Baroque Inspired. I chose to accessorize this outfit with tough "rock chick" elements, and who is more of a rock chick than Betsey Johnson? I chose the Betsey Johnson "Bbela" peep toe platform pumps for their red sole and glittery beading, which picks up and accents the red glitter in the dress. The Valentino "Rockstud" studded cuff and Marc By Marc Jacobs Hair-ties add a very chic get still elegant twist on the popular "arm candy" trend. My favorite part of this whole look has got to be the Black Fringe Leather Clutch by Miss Jolie London

Finish the look with a fresh face, smokey eyes, lashings of a volumising mascara, a glossy Nars Oxblood manicure (don't forget about your toes either!!) and matching lipstick in Future Red, and finally, a spritz of Hypnotic Poison by Dior. Darling, in this outfit, you are going to rock that party!

There you have it; How I would style that fabulous dress from Fanny Crown Paris. Honestly, I think I may have to invest in it, there will be a hole in my heart without it. I guess I'll have to wait until the competition closes, though! 

I have also been given my very own Red Lips; Red Hair 15% discount coupon for my lovely readers to use on the Fanny Crown website, which is valid from today (16th January) to the 16th of March. 

Just enter RLIPSRHAIR14 when you get to the checkout page! 

While I'm here, I would just like to say thank you to Fanny Crown Paris for letting me take part in such a fun, creative and all-round awesome competition, it's been a great experience!

10 Day Challenge Day 8: 3 Films

#10 secrets // #09 loves // #08 fears // #07 wants // #06 places // #05 foods // #04 books // #03 films // #02 songs // #01 picture of yourself.

I love films so this will be another tough post for me. 

3. Never Let Me Go. This film is based on the book of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro and its amazing. I was gutted after I watched it the first time and it still remains one of my most favorite Sci Fi movies. 

2. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I know, not the most factual of movies but a bloody great movie for entertaining you solidly. I watched this with my cousins during the summer during a pretty dramatic night. It's a great film, you should check it out. 

1. Dirty Dancing. This gets the #1 spot because it's the earliest film I remember seeing. I must have seen this when I was about 5 or 6 and I love it. Always have, always will. Patrick Swayze was a babe. 

Oh we're getting close to the end guys!

Tomorrow, 2 Songs.
