For the sunflower embroidered dress I decided to go for a very simple, feminine ensemble. One of the great things about this dress is its versatility, it can be dressed up or down. Here I've opted for a dress down look, by simply styling the dress with a pair of gladiator sandals and a messenger bag (suitable for a day in the park). Yellow is always complimentary against darker tones, and always gives a very striking appearance.

The image above shows how I would put together the neon skater dress from Oasis which I posted earlier.
Neon is a bold colour statement and I think the suede open toe wedges gives it more feistiness. Purple and neon green always compliment each other very well, so pairing purple nail polish would be a good colour match for this look.
I contrasted the face and hair from the outfit by giving them quite soft looks, this was because I wanted the statement to all be in the outfit and needed everything else to work around it. Adding gold eyeshadows to the corners of the eyes gives a real effortless glow, and a loose braid gives a very laid back hairstyle. I like the fact that this whole look is very fierce and fun at the same time.

Although this dress is more on the pricier side retailing at £60 at Topshop, it is afterall"THE audrey
dress" so we can let the price slide, this once! and focus on the fact that audrey heburn aka 'mother of
style' is the inspiration", ! and also cant forget that it is still a fraction of the alice +olivia dress, my
initial inspiration. So if you are looking for something affordable but willing to spend that little bit
extra, this one may be for you. The bodice lace and pleated skirt brings a very textured look.
My next find is this dazzling dress by Oasis. Oasis isn't typically my first stop on the high street, however their frocks this season have been breathtaking!!. I love how neon is always a head turner bringing an uncompromising yet radiant glow no matter the season. The wide pleated skirt volumises the silhouette and brings a very classic yet youthful appearance. The low v-neck line along with the sheer fabric exudes sexiness and sophistication in one, Im in love!!. This dress retails just at £40, so ladies I would grab this head tuner while its still available!!!.

The best high street find so far, is this Oasis Lemon Flower Print Dress, retailing at just £45. Just like the alice+olivia lemon print dress, this frock also has an A-line silhouette which gives the outfit a very vintage yet playful appearance. The print is a mix of florals and lemons.
