Whether you are a fan of London based reality show Made in Chelsea or not, there is one thing everyone will agree on – Millie Mackintosh is gorgeous. In fact so gorgeous that after seeing her model the new range of Lipsy VIP dresses I could not wait to get my hands on them: I am once again excited about Lipsy creations, and that has not happened for over a 6 months! They are not your day to day party dresses – in fact VIP range is perfect for special occasions and now that the wedding season is approaching, I would recommend you go no further for the outfit of choice than Lipsy’s website. Beautiful and impact-making dresses come in both mini and maxi lengths and give you great choice of fabrics. Plus each dress gives you a different focus: feathers, lace, tutu skirt, embellished, scalloped, sequined, printed – just pick what S/S12 trend you want to follow and grab one of them before they get away!
Below is my selection of favourite pieces from the collection to inspire you to have a look at the entire range at www.lipsy.com.
- Rouched Bust Dip Dye Prom Dress, £120
- Waxed Lace Feather Dress, £110
- Scalloped Edge Sequin Dress, £120
- Flower Bust Maxi Dress, £130
- Sweetheart Embellished Neckline Ruched Maxi Dress, £130
- Printed Embellished Maxi Dress, £130

No, I am not talking about flying houses like the one in the cartoon UP. House of Dereon is an American brand established in 2004 by famous singer Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles (known for styling Beyonce and other members on Destiny’s Child) and now it is finally available in our country.
The brand is intergenerationally inspired – Beyonce acts as a muse, Tina Knowles as a designer and her late mother Agnes Dereon who worked as a seamstress and dressmaker in Louisiana as an inspiration. Targeting 20-30 year old fashionable women (that is their own positioning, I on the other hand do not believe that fashion needs to be age-specific) the brand provides a range of sexy dresses and other outfits that would make your fashion choices for a night out on the town easy.
In my opinion even if House of Dereon was not Beyonce-related I would love the collection. It is feminine and definitely sexy – who would not want a piece from their collection, especially now that we are all thinking about holiday season outfits?
Above are two of my favourite dresses from the collection: Shimmer Strap Bodycon Dress in Gold £90-£100 and Assymetric Mini Dress £80. I would also like to add sequin pieces from the collection to my wishlist: I love waterfall blazer (£110) and a wrap front skirt (£75) especially since both come in a choice of black and gold colours. See the whole range in the special concession at London Selfridges, online at http://www.selfridges.com and http://www.lipsy.com.
Little tip, if you are shopping online try Lipsy as the prices are up to 10% lower and you will be able to get free delivery on orders over £75 with a special code: AW11SHIPPING but not all items are available at both e-locations.

There used to be time when Lipsy e-shop was the destination for my search for night on the town outfits. To this day my wardrobe contains more Lipsy dresses than any of the actual Lipsy stores. This is why it is such a shame that collection after collection I seem to find no new Lipsy dresses that I love. I wonder if it is a change in the design team or the result of accumulating way to many Lipsy dresses.
That all changed today. I actually found it. New lipsy dress that deserves a place on my wish list. Bright colours, bold print and my favourite dress shape – perfect! £50 is a great price too compared to other dresses on the website that are more pricey and yet less exciting. I am sold!
