WhatLauraWore: Gemma’s TOWIE Dress

Tonight I went to the VIP store opening of the new Simply Be store in the Metro Centre, Gateshead.  What a night!  I’ll fill you all in on the event tomorrow but for now I’ll leave you with some snaps of the outfit I wore.  The dress I chose to wear is the Beaded Fit and Flare Tea Dress by Rise at Simply Be which the gorgeous Gemma Collins actually wore on The Only Way Is Essex recently.  I received so many compliments while wearing this dress and I spotted quite a few women taking it into the changing room to try on, so it is definitely a hit.  The 40s style is so flattering on a multitude of shapes and the beading makes it a very feminine choice; I felt really pretty wearing it.  The dress is a peachy coral shade so I paired it with a coral clutch and wedges.

    You look lovely Laura! Such a pretty dress – You can really see how gorgeous it is in your photos. I saw 'Gemma' wearing it on TOWIE but as she was sat down, I couldn't really appreciate how nice it is. Your 'Primarni' sandals are very cute too! Lou 🙂 x

    Shoes are my favourite! Can't beat Primark. I don't think they had it in stock in Ireland though 🙁

    LOVE these shoes–this is exactly what I am looking to wear for my wedding shoes. Do you know where I can get them or something like them?

      These were from Primark but they were off a couple of years ago so I doubt they sell the exact ones now. They might sell something similar, or you could always try New Look xxx
