My 2014 in Girl Meets Dress

 

The year 2014 has been full of so many amazing new designer dress collections on the Girl Meets Dress website. And as the year went on and I wore each new dress, just like our customers who hire from us each week, a special memory was created in that dress at that event.

I’ve loved so many dress moments in 2014 and thought I would share some of my favourites… all the styles are still available to hire through into 2015!

Each dress is linked so click through and read more about the style and check if it is available for your event dates. Remember you can book dresses in advance for any future event. Click on the calendar shown on every dress page. Alternatively, we now have a Girl Meets Dress showroom in Battersea, London – so if you fancy trying on our dresses together with our personal stylists who will advise and help you choose, book an appointment.

Award ceremonies call for festive gowns

 

Come November, the various business awards are in full swing across London and Girl Meets Dress –  thrilled to be nominated – popped along to enjoy dinner, entertainment and catch up with industry friends – and of course see if we would win!

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards took place at the renowned Old Billingsgate and Gyles Brandreth was the perfect host, having everyone in fits of laughter. 65 entrepreneurs were recognised , with James Watt, founder of BrewDog, taking home the Grand Prix accolade of Great British Entrepreneur of the Year.

We did make our appearance on stage when Headline Sponsor NatWest awarded Girl Meets Dress with the NatWest Special Merit Award in the category of ecommerce. Congratulations team!

So, the dress? I choose to wear our purple CARMEN MARC VALVO  Iridescent Chiffon Gown for the first time. What more could a girl want; cap sleeved flowing chiffon. Definitely a more feminine style that I usually choose. The softly pleated A-line skirt falling from the empire waist and corseted bodice did, I have to admit, warrant a couple of ‘princess’ comments from the table, so what else was I supposed to do other than rise to the theme with a little outburst verse of Frozen’s “Let it Go…”

The following week Girl Meets Dress hosted a table at the Retail Systems Awards and we provided beauty goody bags to all female guests. I was also presenting an award on stage so needed a suitably glamorous dress. This time I chose the gorgeous Crepe Halter evening gown with a halter neck style feature and contrasting embroidered detailing accents the bodice which continues along the back. After dinner, the room transformed into a casino and we had a lot of fun gambling for prizes well into the night.

For the next  awards later that same week, The Growing Business Awards, hosted by comedian Ed Byrne at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square I wore this black Sleeveless Lace Shutter Gown. I love the tiers of airy organza mixed with delicate floral lace in this sweeping, floor length design.
