Sweet 18th ...

October for me means one thing - the single most important day of the year - my birthday! As the clock struck midnight I was showered with champagne in the back of a glossy black stretch hummer. It was a scene that resembled New Year rather than just my 18th birthday, but I don’t do things by halves. I spent the night teetering in my favourite patent platforms and loving every legally allowed to drink second.

I spent weeks agonising over the age-old question, what on earth to wear? I’m partial to (a lot of) Topshop but I would say the prices are far from intern friendly. Our fashion insider told us that Alesha Dixon’s dress for her opening on Strictly Come Dancing was by an online boutique called Goddiva – and since then stylists have been falling over themselves to dress their celebs in the celebrity inspired dresses.

I had to have one … so I bought three.

The range is beautiful with ‘just fell off the celebrity’s back’ designs. I was back to square one (because I had to chose between sequins, shoulders, long, short, strapless, body con, the list is endless), except instead of having to face the cold I could see it all from my computer! Most of the dresses are around the £30 mark, so the glitzy clutch bags are a cosy companion instead of a guilty indulgence.

They say the best part of going out is getting ready – and in my perfect iridescent Goddiva number I felt like a princess before I’d even blown out my candles.

  1. Well, if you can't spoil (and style) yourself for your birthday, when can you? I expect to see outfit photos

    All best,
