Notes from a Stylist finds…A party dress to last all summer season…

Stella McCartney

So, with a ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ kind of summer ahead, I need an on trend dress to get me through. When I say 4 weddings I actually mean one, but there’s also 2 Charity Benefits, the New York Academy of Arts TriBeCa Ball as well as a few serious birthday parties ¬†(by serious I’m talking decade-serious and no, I’m not going to give away which decade….)


Thank the lord then for, my first port of call for any style-serious solution. I can’t be bothered to actually leave the comfort of my home to search out the perfect ‘do-all’ dress so why not use my online savvy to sort the problem.

Emilio de la Morena

Forty five minutes and a few filled shopping carts later I’ve narrowed my choice down to a Stella McCartney number at, a Willow diaphonous number at Net-a-Porter and even an Emilio de la Morena piece at…. and the winner is, the cobalt blue Stella McCartney number.

With the beauty of internet shopping, I’ll receive the sumptuously wrapped package, try it on in my own closet and then make the final decision. Ah, a shopaholics life is never dull…
