What I Wore to..My Engagement Party

So when you are recently engaged you want every excuse to wear a white dress.. I was super excited to have a engagement party. So of course I wanted a dress I would cherish forever and I decided on a fab white Crystal encrusted Rachel Gilbert . I was so excited when it arrived and was worth every penny. image  It was a strapless dress but I felt it needed straps as I felt I would be pulling it up all night as the crystals are quiet heavy and I am quite busty. I visited a family friend who is a seamstress and got her to add straps to the dress. image My theme was Old Hollywood so I wanted a lot of glamour I picked a pair of diamond stilettos up in a shoe shop in the Liberty’s in Dublin City they were worth a small fortune but looked amazing on. image image Earrings were Crystal Pavè bezel drops by Jon Richard and the hair clips were by Vincenza for Debenhams I loved the vintage plating on these as it really added character to them. image I booked into Citywest Hotel Angel Hairdressing for my hair to be done. Stylist washed, dried and ran the wand through it to get the relaxed Hollywood curls I asked for then myself and my lovely friend Serena had lunch in the hotel with our fresh makeup free faces before we set off to get our makeup done. image Tada the final look that Debroah from Closer2Fabulous created having worked with Debroah as a model. I cannot praise her work enough whether it’s under pressure or in a relaxed environment she always manages to make you feel like you are far away from the stresses of the outside world. She also takes her time to make sure you are 100% Fabulous and I opted for dewy Hollywood carpet fit makeup! L❤VE It !! image Some photo’s my man took before we left our room for our party. The bracelets I am wearing are Pearl charm by Thomas Sambo and the Crystal bracelet in the middle is from Forever21 image Myself & My handsome Hubbie to be at our party 💏 (Note the sky scraper Crystal stilettos I earlier wore had to be changed for a comfort /lower heel) 😂 image Have you a engagement party to plan.. if so what are you planning on wearing ? 💏

I also themed it with a pink  Jesirè fushia pink blazer with gold buttons but as it was quite warm  I didn’t wear the blazer long enough. I didn’t take  a picture of it on me but I do have a photo of my friend wearing it as I lent it to her for a family event. Jesirè is no longer trading but they did used to trade in Brown Thomas Dublin and I have many pieces from there range that to this day really are statement pieces in my wardrobe. Princess Kate is a big fan of Jesirè even in her casual chic wardrobe.
