Hi everyone!! Like most mums and ladies I tend to base my wardrobe around daytime dressing and in winter that tends to be jeans and sweaters and in summer I like to wear vintage and designer dresses, all thrifted of course! I don't get the chance to go out often in the evening, occasionally I may go out for a meal with friends or with hubby so of course I will try and dress up when the situation arises.
One place on my wishlist is to visit a casino. I've only ever seen them on films and the ladies and gents who frequent them always look so chic and classy and this is when a little black dress and a pair of statement shoes and bag would be the order of the day. Here is a pick of my favourite outfit that would be on my wishlist for a night out there:
This dress is by Alexander Wang and I love the sheen and the cut of this dress, clinging in all the right places and short enough to show off the legs and keeping the cleavage under wraps! Dressing for a casino night out should be an opportunity to dress elegantly and stylish and if you can be on trend too it shows how modern and forward thinking you really are, plus giving you the chance to show how seriously you intend on winning some big money, fingers crossed!!
A shorter chic black dress means a pair of statement shoes or sandals would be prominently on show and I love these stunning sandals by Charlotte Olympia- they are funky yet chic and a perfect accompaniment to a little black dress:
I also adore these Jimmy Choo sandals, they really would be a perfect style investment that would never date and be forever classic for that perfect evening out:
Of course a statement clutch would have to considered and this one by Alexander McQueen ticks all the boxes-the ring details mean instant jewellery glamour and the patent black lace effect just oozes style and overall this is a stunning evening bag that would be also big enough to keep all those chips in that I'll be winning!!
All of these I would happily indulge in if of course I had the means to buy them and I know they would be perfect picks for that special occasion. Like many of us though, I do have a little black dress already in the wardrobe- my Christopher Kane for Topshop lace and rivet dress was a charity shop find a couple of years ago from the British Heart Foundation for just £14.99 and has already been worn for those rare nights out. The style of the dress is just above the knee and the modern twist of rivets and lace ensure it is a future classic that will always be one of my 'go to' dresses for when I want to dress up:
I bought these silver faux snakeskin effect caged sandals from Tesco a few years back and they were half price in the sale- I'm sure they were around £9. They are the perfect partner for my dress above and this would be my reality choice of outfit if I do get the chance to go to the casino anytime soon!
Have you ever been to a casino, what would be your outfit of choice and more importantly-did you win??
