Fashion Union: Botanical Print Dress

Dress Motel Rocks from Fashion Union / Jewellery Temporary:Secretary

Last week, I mentioned that I am a guest blogger for a fashion brand called Fashion Union and my first blog post is now live on their blog. I don’t usually give suggestions for what to wear with an outfit other than what jewellery or shoes I’m wearing myself, so I thought I would give this a go when I was browsing through Fashion Union’s website in attempt to recommend a day time and evening look (as seen below). I love florals but I don’t own many dresses with such a sharp print as this and it reminds me of Mary Katrantzou’s collection (especially the one she did for TopShop).

I really like putting these images together for the Fashion Union article and I don’t think I have done anything like that before. It makes me wish that I did a graphics outcome for my final year at uni. We were allowed to choose a graphics, surface pattern/textiles print or a fashion based project. Some people produced amazing fashion magazines, some took beautiful photography and artwork to produce a book. As I thought I was better at sewing than I was at graphics, I chose the fashion pathway straight away. I didn’t enjoy this at all, and I actually hated designing and making the six garments for the collection. I wasn’t very confident with graphics back then and lacked imagination but I have improved since I’ve graduated as I’ve had to do it as part of my job. Anyway! Hope you like the looks I have put together! x

  5. Beautiful dress I have noticed FU have some fantastic day to night 50's and floral dresses I am going to be getting quite I few I feel πŸ™‚ Thanks for matching them up for a night and day look, great idea!

  6. Amazing dress! Love the colours and the fact you can dress it up or down is such a bonus.

    If I curl my hair I do it a day after washing, then use Umberto Giannini hair spray which is usually pretty good to keep curls in πŸ™‚

    Looking lovely as ever!

  7. I've missed reading your blog Sarah , I seem to get so busy that I never get to read my favourite blogs. Your latest outfits have become even more lush! I love how i'm not the only one whipping out the florals early and going for crazy pattern combinations. Please can I borrow your wardrobe ? I feel like I have to steal all your clothes! xx

  8. Sarah can I just say how much I adore you and your blog? Once again you look insanely gorgeous and I'm loving how you've put the outfit together

  9. Congrats! I think you look lovely. That dress is gorgeous and the colors really pop. As for curls staying, I find it helpful to coat my hair in hairspray before starting to curl it, also avoid touching the curls while they are hot! Those are basic tips a friend taught me, but they've worked pretty well!

  10. how about following each other? πŸ™‚
    follow me and I'll follow you back as soon as I find you in my follower list πŸ™‚
    and another thing: I really like the way you edit your photos, especially the one of your cat! which program do you use and what do you do with the photos exactly? πŸ™‚
