Shopaholics Series - Coast London

I often post on dreamy designer dresses that most of us would require winning the lotto to buy. It's not impossible to get that celebrity red carpet look that we swoon over, for much much less. I recently came across the label Coast London and got hopelessly lost in their beautiful collection of party dresses and evening wear, which not only look luxurious, but cost a fraction of any couture dress. Coast creates exquisite occasion wear, paying detailed attention to feminine silhouettes, sumptuous fabrics and intricate detailing. 

Why not have our very own glamourous moment in the spotlight - even if that mean twirling around in a tulle skirt under fluorescents in your local trendy hangout - Just Kidding, Don't do that...unless you really want to. Here are my favourites from this irresistible range. 


Blush Tones

Fuchsia Fancy


Prints


 Brights

Wispy Whites

Radiant Reds


Midnight Matters

Metallics

Coast London has their flagship store on Oxford Street, and there are also 147 boutiques around the world. If you can't find one in your city, try shopping online at Coast-Stores.com

Which would be your ideal Coast Red Carpet look?

The blush tones are so pretty but I'm drawn to the gorgeous midnight blue maxi. Having said that, the metallics are very glamorous! Coast is a very popular brand over here for occasion dresses. I have also bought a couple of evening tops too. There's actually a Coast in our local department store just ten minutes from home!

Dearest Sam, although I never bought from Coast I lost my heart when I saw the wonderful dresses which you have selected! Especially the print dresses and the red ones and the whites and ... are awesome. Thanks for your tip and your effort <3

For me the population of your town sounds absolutely high, I think you understand me, after knowing the population of the village where I was born and to be honest the village where I live now isn´t much bigger ;) Do you live direct in your town or outside?
