Presenting Glam-May your guide the Classic (ish) social calendar for May!
May is the start of “the season” and it kicks off this weekend with Eurovision, endlessly cheesy and perhaps more political than it should be, it’s a fabulous way to start off your Summer with a bang.
Why not have a Eurovision themed party, and if you are looking for a dress to wear, why not try our Tuxedo Peplum Dress? Worn here by the exquisite Anna (size 22 and 5’6”/168 cm tall)
Glyndebourne starts on Saturday 19th May and creates a dreamy vision of England, with people in gorgeous formal dress strolling through the gardens pre-performance, thinking of Elgar, Holst, or perhaps whether the egg mayonnaise in their picnic has curdled.
If you are at this quintessentially English event, you might bump into the angelic Annie (size 20 and 5’10”/178 cm tall) wearing our Sweetheart Mesh Neck & Sleeve Lurex Maxi Bodycon Dress!
Just perfect for a night listening to opera and frolicking at one of the gorgeous stately homes England has to offer.
But this is not all that’s happening on that Saturday! It is the day of the hotly anticipated Royal Wedding and our ever-indecisive Lady Phillipa cannot decide on which dress to wear! Should she go for the Juliette ‘In Sandringham’ Hanky Hem Dress worn here by the fantastic Catherine (size 14 and 5’6”/168 cm tall) or our Baby Lollidot Angel Dress? Modelled here by the brilliant Beth (size 28 and 5’8”/173 cm tall)
What says England more than a good old-fashioned street party? The star at Bethnal green celebrates its 10th Birthday this year with an awesome street party. Celebrate and keep cool in the gorgeous Hollywood Starlet 2-in-1 Dress modelled here by the classical beauty Alexandra (size 16 and 5’4”/163 cm tall), perfect for an afternoon and evening of summertime fun!
Either way, these beautiful Spring/Summer dresses are sure to get you noticed at any wedding you attend this year, what will you be wearing? Why not wear one of our signature Nancy Marilyn Chiffon Maxi Dresses, worn here by the fabulous Kayleigh (size 18 and 5’5”/165 cm tall) and Kemisha (size 16 and 5’9”/175 cm tall)
London wine week ends on the 20th – celebrate by quaffing delicious Rioja or crisp chardonnays and relaxing at various venues around London and the home counties. The stylish and modern Wrap Lounge Jumpsuit would be a perfect outfit to wear to such a chic occasion as modelled here by the marvellous Christie (size 22 5’6”/168 cm tall) for her prom!
The RHS Chelsea flower show starts on the 22nd bringing to mind heady scents of beautiful blooms and images of magical floral arrangements, be as incomparable as a rose in the Marylin Spot Midi Dress while sauntering through the displays as modelled here by the amazing Amy (size 22 and 5’9”/175 cm tall)
Effigies of Wickedness is on during the end of May, Covent Garden opera singers and Dalston Queer Cabaret stars resurrect the daring and subversive 20’s and 30th songs the Nazis banned in the gleefully transgressive look at the world of the Weimar cabaret scene. Be seen in the Lurex Bodycon Dress which has a 30’s inspired elegance that is hard to find! Modelled here by the divine Amy (size 24 and 5’9”/175 cm tall)
With so many events on at this time of year, what will you wear?
