Chi Chi Clothing Erika Dress for cocktail hour

I don't know about you, but I would rather be over dressed than under dressed and I'll use any occasion as an excuse to dress up to the nines, especially if I've got a brand new gorgeous dress lying and waiting in a lovely bag somewhere. As you may know I've left Him Indoors to his own devices for a few days to fly off and spend some time with my family, but before I left we thought we would have a night out on the town with a great meal and champagne, which was the perfect opportunity for me to wear my latest little blue number from Chi Chi Clothing*.
This Chi Chi Erika Dress (£49.99) is a beautiful sleek sleeveless shift dress in a muted navy blue with gorgeous gold colored lace detailing. With it's low back and concealed zip it's a very chic and elegant evening dress, perfect for cocktail hour with some nibbles.  
Dress: Chi Chi Clothing // Shoes: ASOS // Cuffs: H&M // Ring: YSL // Nail polish: Rimmel I Love Lasting Finish in Marshmallow Heaven

I absolutely love this dress and if you're looking for a new dress for spring and summer, I would highly recommend that you have a look at Chi Chi Clothing's lovely new collection of dresses for any occasion - day, evening or party, and if you're a new customer you get 10% of your first order too. I'll see you at the checkout!
