If you’re an avid social media/reality TV star fan (which some MAY say that I am), you’ll know that Binky Felstead from Made Chelsea and Charlotte Crosby from Geordie Shore have both produced clothing ranges for In The Style UK. These clothing ranges are a few seasons in now and are always splashed across both of their Twitter and Insta accounts through shameless self-promo.
There’s a wine-coloured 70’s style beauty from Binky’s ‘Luxe Bohemia’ AW15 range that I recently spotted when I saw Miss Felstead herself sporting it with thigh high boots on one wintry night back in February. GURL, YA GOT STYLE.
I loved the way that it tied up at the front in a lovely criss-cross, sat nicely mid-thigh and was floaty enough to be reppin’ the perfect swing dress. I just knew right then and there it had to be mine.
The catch?! It was ALL OF THE MONEY. Well, no… That’s a lie. But it was £26.99 which I think is quite pricey for your average run-of-the-mill high street dress. However, I’ve just noticed it is now in the sale so quick – RUN, LADIES and you can snap it up before it’s too late.
I wore this dress on a recent night out (in between getting tonsillitis twice – FUN – read all about it here) with my black thigh highs to replicate Binky’s super cute yet super sophisticated hippy look.

Black Cami Top – Matalan
Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite brave enough to show my cleavage like Binks (my boobs aren’t that big) so I went for the black cami underneath but teamed it with plenty of sass in the form of my black leather jacket and over the shoulder box bag.

Then I attempted to add to the cool 70’s vibe with wavy Farrah Fawcett-style hair and disco glam make up. This, in my mind, equals Saturday Night Fever personified.
It was such a fun look to wear and I will definitely wear this dress again soon – perhaps during the day with a floppy fedora and fringed ankle boots as it’s such a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down.
(What do you think, do you like my dress? Would you buy from In The Style UK? Apologies for the crappy phone photos and thanks for reading! Katie-xo)
