You know you’ve gotten older when your dream party dress covers as much of your body as possibly, isn’t remotely tight and has pockets. My 19 year old self would have hated me too. I’ve always loved Ulyana Sergeenko’s designs but never knew where to begin – it’s a nightmare to order from, the showroom is in Moscow and everything seems to cost the equivalent of a one bedroom in Swindon. Lucky for me (and you, or maybe not), Moda Operandi has started pre-selling pieces which means it’s a simple order and return if spending thousands of pounds on a shift dress isn’t your jam. This little number is one of my favourite purchases, it can literally be worn anywhere and to anything. I’ve worn it on the beach in Dubai with sandals, no makeup and hair begging me for a conditioning treatment but I thought that it would also look good snazzed up a bit for a drink (correction, many drinks) with friends.

Other than my beloved So Kate’s, these are my first Christian Louboutin purchase in a long time. I have taken a step back from the days I was obsessed with any single pair of shoe with a red bottom but these perfect platform, lame sandals must have had an older sister dancing at Studio 54 every night of the week, I couldn’t resist.
