Kaliko Middleton dress

 I have to say I truly felt like a princess (or should I say Duchess) in this lilac Middleton dress. It's so feminine and and the pleats give a flattering finish.The photos don't really capture how vivid the colour is and how much of an impression the dress makes.

I love the lace detail at the bust and the tiny buttons on the back (photo below) and the fact that it has little capped sleeves makes me feel more comfortable as I don't like my arms exposed in strapless dresses. Kaliko have really created the perfect summer event dress in my opinion. It's demure enough for a church wedding but dressy enough for a day at the races and would event suit a more mature lady as a mother of the bride outfit in the more subtle pink shade.

The shoes are from Clarks and have a very comfortable mid heel and cushioning inside. These nude heels are going to get plenty of wear as they go with so many things, can't believe I've never had a pair of nude shoes before.


I kept my make up simple and wore my new ELF Moisturising Lipstick which was a bargain at under £4 and tied my hair up in a messy low bun.If you want to shop this look yourself head to House of Fraser in Cardiff (or nationwide) who stock all Jacques Vert lines including Kaliko.


A selection of the exclusive dresses from Bellville Sassoon designer Lorcan Mullany will be available at Jacques Vert in House of Fraser, Cardiff; the range has stylish and flattering day wear, including shorter, tailored dresses in classic shades of navy and oyster – perfect for a day at the races and for Mother of The Brides. For more cultured evening events, Lorcan has designed a selection of full length cocktail dresses, with ruching to nip you in at the waist, and some with light shrugs to flatter the arms as well as keeping the evening chill at bay.

  13. Oh this dress is so super beautiful, it might even make me look like a real girl.

    Nude shoes definitely need to go on my list of things to buy. Just need to remember to actually do it.

  15. Really gorgeous dress on you! I'm a big fan of dresses with sleeves, it's so cold in this country, you get wayyyy more wear out of them and they can take you to more formal occasions. Super colour, matches the hydrangea perfectly! Hadn't really thought much of Kaliko for ages, would be interested to see what else they have x
