I LOVE coral. I mean if there was one color I could keep in my wardrobe for the rest of my days… It would be coral. Okay, maybe black. However, coral is a close second.
I think that coral is one color that everyone can pull off. Whether you are black or white, have brown hair, ginger hair, red hair, pink hair or brown hair coral will generally work.
I remember the first time I tried on a coral lipstick… It was Chanel, my favorite lipstick brand, and my mother bought it for me. It is safe to say I was in complete awe.
Recently, I was watching reruns of my all time favorite TV show “Gossip Girl.” If you have been following my blog you probably understand that I am inspired great deal from the TV Show. Anyways, I was watching a usual episode with their beautiful outfits and Blair came on screen wearing this chic… BEAUTIFUL coral lace dress. I instantly fell in love with this dress and I started an obsessive search, or may I say rampage for this dress.
I first started the search in Dubai, where I came across a multitude of coral lace dresses JUST like the one Blair was wearing… however NONE of them were my size 8-10 UK or 4-6 USA. I searched and searched and I came up with nothing. After my time in Dubai, I landed in England and once again started the search, AGAIN I found a dozen of beautiful dresses JUST like the one Blair wore but NONE of them fit me. Just when I was on the brink of giving up I spotted one more coral dress in Red Herring / Debenhams and it was my size. Overjoyed.
To look at the spark that ignited my obsession for THIS dress: http://www.posh24.com/photo/1228589/leighton_meester_as_blair_wald
I wore this look with my beautiful ASOS heels, and Zara pearl necklace. As for the famous dress… IT can be found in various stores… I just hope that YOU have better luck finding your size.
Much Love Always,
