Let Lyst Do the Hard Work For You


When I am shopping online or looking online, I like to bookmark items ive seen and use quite a few sites to do this. Lyst is one of those sites that fits all needs. They partner with the world’s greatest designers and stores to bring the world of fashion to you in one place. So whether you shop at ASOS, Coast and House of Fraser to the designer labels of Valentino, Stella McCartney and Dolce and Gabanna, here you will find everything you need and then some.

Wedding season has almost arrived and I have three invitations to attend three weddings in the space of 10 weeks, so ive been scouring the internet looking for something to wear to each one, the chances of me seeing the same guests at any of them are slim to not likely to happen, but I am still undecided whether I need one dress or three!

It is through Lyst that I actually found a dress I really liked and have since been to try on and it is shown below. From Coast this Flower Icon Dress. It features a sheer embroidered overlay and beautifully constructed bodice. The contrasting waist tie cinches you in whilst the underneath tulle creates a sensational full silhouette. I really like fit and flare dresses because I find them to be quite flattering.

When I do find a dress that I like, I always try to find everything I need to go with it. One of the weddings I am attending is quite a formal affair, so whilst black is my favurite colour, I thought it would make sense to team a black dress with lighter accessories.  So these Nina Vesta Open-Toe Pumps by Lord and Taylor are the perfect height and I really like that they are peep toe with a padded insole to ensure they are comfortable. Add to that this stunning Hobbs Mayfair Clutch which is a pale neutral pearlescent Italian leather and it features an interior zip pocket and invisible magnetic fastening, this evening purse is ready to be clasped in the hand, or worn on the shoulder with the leather-and-link strap. The Larue Mini Fascinator is an extra that I quite like but usually forgot to wear when I am ready to leave. It features a stunning structured woven shape adorned with delicate feathers and is designed to be clipped into your hair rather than worn on your head n a headband like design.


Jewellery is something I adore, I don't really wear much on a day to day basis, but when it comes to a wedding, I think some nice jewellery, real or costume, can really finish off an outfit. For me, pearls are really underrated and I am lucky enough to have a pearl bracelet that was gifted to me as an heirloom, but for this outfit there is the Nadri Knotted Faux Pearl Necklace which features a crystal clasp closing and it is really pretty. Add to that the Charter Club White Imitation Pearl Stretch bracelet and Talbots Women's Pearl Stud Earrings which are both simple in design yet really elegant looking.


So using a site like Lyst I have managed to find everything I need and it took me less than 2 hours of scrolling, saving and bookmarking to find something I am happy with.  How do you shop?

  12. It sounds like a really cool site. I do prefer to actually go shopping though personally because you can pretty much bet that I would send it back because it didn't fit or didn't look how I wanted it lol This is a great idea though because finding matching accessories can someties be really hard.
