Looking Good with the help of the Amy Childs Dress Collection #Review

Looking Good with the help of the
 Amy Childs Dress Collection.

I've been having lots of fun playing dress up with some gorgeous dresses from the Amy Childs Collection over the weekend. I can't tell you just how excited I was when I first saw them, it was like being a 7 year old all over again in girlie dress heaven. I love dressing up although I don't as many opportunity to do so as much as I would like, having 3 kids and all so this weekend was all about the dresses and having fun with them.

I'm so excited to say that I (yes me) now owns 2 gorgeous dresses from the Official Amy Childs Collection, the beautiful Hailey Black and the cute Kelly in purple.

First up is the Hailey Black which is a smart day to evening midi dress. It's very flattering and perfect for wearing out to work or on a sophisticate night out.

The fitted midi length skirt with sophisticated work appropriate neckline and statement shoulder details makes it perfect for smart occasions with the wrap over bust detail and flattering stomach ruching creating a simple silhouette that is statement smart.

I love this dress. I don't often wear midi lengths as I find them quite restricting but I didn't find that with this one. The dress looks really fitted but it's not too tight that you feel uncomfortable. I loved the shoulders and the neckline on this dress, they were both perfect for hiding a 'bigger girl' style bra which I often have to wear to get the right support.

The ruched middle is also great as I get very paranoid about my 'mummy tummy'. This dress is very flattering, it holds you in, in all the right places which is great. My pictures show me wearing the Amy Childs Hailey Black in a UK size 12.

I would happily wear this dress to work if I worked in an office environment. It's a beautiful dress which flatters without being revealing which is what I love about it.

 I'd also wear this dress out to a wedding, a party or a formal dinner maybe as it's just too nice to be sat in my wardrobe for too long. 

The Hailey Black costs £49.99 which for a dress of this comfort and style isn't that much. I've paid more for dresses that I've not loved even half as much as this one.

Next up is the beautiful Kelly dress which is an A-Line scuba shift dress with flared lace sleeves and yoke with pretty scallop finish. There's also a lovely Lace insert hem detail.

I love the colour of the Kelly dress, it's very pretty. I don't often wear bright dresses as I feel like I'm going to stand out too much but the Kelly dress is gorgeous. Yes, it's dark purple but No, it doesn't look too overpowering. It's a lovely shade which is very feminine.

This dress is much looser and a lot comfier. It's a straight down, A-line dress that fits nicely and sits well in all the right places. I love the lace details on this dress, there's lace around the bottom and all around the top half. The long sleeves are all made of lace along with the shoulders and neck section. The details are very pretty, I love lace.

The Kelly is definitely my kind of dress, I'm already planning on wearing it to a wedding I'm attending in a few weeks time. Not only will I look great but I'll feel great all day long too as it's just so comfortable to wear. I love the length of this one as it sits just above the knee. It's not too short or revealing but just short enough to show a little bit of leg which I like.

The Kelly dress would normally cost £49.99 but is currently reduced to £34.00.

I've really enjoyed wearing both of these dresses this weekend even if I didn't get to actually go outside in them. I'd never thought of looking at the Amy Childs Collection before, I think I thought that they would be way out of my price range but boy was I wrong. There's lot of gorgeous dresses for every occasion and every budget. I think I'm hooked.

This is my very first time modeling dresses so please do forgive me if the pictures aren't that great. I was very nervous and had a 12 year old for a photographer but we tried our best.

You can check out all the Amy Childs Dresses over on her website. If you love pretty dresses for reasonable prices then I'd definitely pop over and have a look.

Disclosure: I was sent my dresses in return for an honest review.


  1. I love the first dress on you, the shape is fantastic. Looking good :)

    1. Aw thank you, I wasn't sure if I could pull it off or not so I really appreciate the comment x

  2. I agree the black dress definitely compliments your figure and hair colour so much more although for myself I love the second dress, the colour and design is gorgeous.

    1. I think i have to agree, I love the fitting of the first but do love the colour and the lace on the second x

  3. I think gem above is right in the fact that you definitely suit the first dress , but i love the red on you x

    1. Aww thanks Lisa, I love them both but am now confused as to which one to wear to my friends upcoming wedding lol x

  4. You look amazing in both dresses even though they are different styles.
