Mariam Said Collection Launch


MBC star and first Arabic celebrity to embark upon a fash-collaboration with Lipsy London, Mariam Said launches the Eid 2015 collection in the beautiful setting of VOI at Zabeel Sarray.  Now, although this was Mariam's debut, I cheekily wore a Michelle Keegan dress (also endorsed by Lipsy) and you can see what I wore and the bts snaps here.

I wore a Michelle Keegan nude halter (buy here!) with white lace touches around the hem lines. Although this is a pretty dress, a bodycon was not the most strategic piece to wear when presented with silver trays layered with cupcakes and scones all afternoon. By 4pm and having breathed in all day, I now had to deal with a stitch as well as heel ache. I had to wear a Lipsy dress to the event and I liked this one as I thought it would be a good piece to bank for the Dubai World Cup next year - or Ascot if you live in ENgland - as hopefully it will sell through quickly so know one else can buy it (insert evil laugh). It's definitely a summer piece and I love all things nude so I think this has to be up there with one of my wardrobe top buys for 2015.

The #MariamSaidForLipsy collection is best described as conservative yet feminine, eloquent and classy, embellished but not tacky. The brand has still stayed close to it's true values delivering what every Lipsy girls wants, to look good in unique pieces. The collection is available in stores and online, but it's selling like hot cakes so if you like something I'd place your order pronto.
