Occasion 1 – The Wedding

A lot of people want to play it safe with the classic black dress due to it being famous for its slimming quality’s but we don’t quite agree and think at a Winter wedding the only thing to do is sparkle!

This elegant lace top is sophisticated with an all over lace design. The subtle contrast in the lace colour and texture gives this top a touch of shimmer and shine. Teamed with our jacquard ponte skirt it will not only make your outfit pop with the contrast in prints, the skirt also has a secret. The skirt features an elasticated waistband and chic side split for extra comfort and at a long event this is ideal plus it is easy to walk in.

Back is black with this trio of amazing dresses! As we all know black is always a faithful shade for women but with the added element of the hourglass shape these dresses are surely a set of winners?! Even if you don’t feel like you have curves these dresses will create your shape. A fabulous tip is to always make sure you have well-fitting underwear on. My favourite brand for well-fitting undies are Spanx as they offer control and support. I would recommend the ‘OnCore High Waisted Brief’, they come in a good size range S – 3XL buy them here.

Whether you’re off to a birthday, a reunion or just a good old knees up you want to look good and feel good. With the right dress and a fresh face of natural make up and a comfy pair of heels you can own the night but the true key is confidence. Whatever your size or shape you are what you are, don’t shy away… be proud – curves and all.

Occasion 4 – The Christening 
At a christening you want to look elegant, graceful and of course respectful. It is a fabulous occasion and is a memorable family gathering but also a key time to look your finest and let family and friends know you are a well-dressed and a fabulous woman.

Our classic gathered dress features a high rounded neckline with gathering detail around the tummy – a great way to falter that area. The lavish purple floral print is a beautiful colour for the Autumn/Winter season. Complete the look with a pretty little ankle boot and beaded necklace. Simple but chic!

Occasion 5 – Day time FABULOUS
I think most of us are guilty of not dressing our best during the day, it is so easy to run out the house with no make-up on and your hair not done, let alone a well-coordinated outfit. To be honest sometimes I love the fact that I don’t care and I am comfortable with my casual ensemble. However, I think it is important that if you out of your comfort zone and going someone special you make the effort to look your finest, even in the day time.

    You say that you disagree to wearing black to a wedding but then you proceed to show us a black outfit. Just because it has sparkling bits on it, it’s still black. I was expecting some nice pastels maybe, you could still have some glitter in it. Was disappointed. Sorry

  • Jadranka

    All the outfits are too dark. Especially during the winter period we should have some pastel as well as colourful options. Sorry, did not like it.

    Hi Folks, All the dresses look too short to me. I am tall anyway, and prefer something below knee length as more flattering (knees are not a good look on an older woman!). Love more glamorous clothes though, as I like to go out to dinner, attend charity functions, and also cruise often when it is nice to dress up. Nearly all my wardrobe consists of Millers clothing, and great for packing, and easy care, and mix and match so well. Cheers! Annie Mayne.

    Been looking for something special to wear, loved the Feminine Floras dress with the 3/4 sleeve and length, but I repeat another comment in that everything is so dark, no lighter colours to brighten up winter!
