#MSFW - Marisota Shapeology Fashion Week - Occasionwear

This week it's Marisota's Shapeology Fashion Week featuring 5 key autumn/winter trends with a youtube trend catwalk video and supporting posts for each trend from some of your favourite bloggers...including me!

I was excited to be asked to be part of this event, hosted by Mark Heyes...basically, anything involving Mark Heyes is a no-brainer for me. When I met him back in June, I was struck by how passionate he is about incorporating trends into every woman's wardrobe, regardless of age or size.  He's worked closely with Marisota over a few seasons both in a stylist capacity and in the design of his own range - Ava.

The trend I chose to feature from the 5 was Occasionwear...simply because I wear casual stuff all the time on the blog so I thought it would be a nice change to wear something a bit glam. Also, I adored this Joanna Hope jumpsuit and knew it would be brilliant for choir gigs.
What a bonus to know it is made in the UK. It's that kind of jersey that just hangs beautifully and will never crease.
To put with the jumpsuit, I was sent this Joanna Hope Cluster Necklace - a great basic that will work with so many outfits:

I was also sent an oversized black glitter clutch - again another classic piece that's going to be used lots:
But the Sole Diva Plain Court Shoes were the star of the show for me because I struggle to find pointed courts that are comfy. These are an amazing fit and the heel height is perfect - they feel dressy but I can actually walk properly in them. Final bonus is that they have a rubber sole meaning that they're non slip. It's such a simple concept - why don't more shoe manufacturers do this?

And here I am with the entire outfit on
with nowhere to go on this occasion...but I'll be wearing it for my first BCGC concert in a couple of weeks. Size wise, I'm wearing a 12 in the jumpsuit and I would say it's very much true to size.

Do take a look at the Shapeology pages on the Maristota website, there's 15% off if you like the brand on Facebook and next day delivery is only £3.99. Also take a look at the trend videos to get Mark Heyes' take on the different trends - they're all on this link and the occasion wear one includes my outfit!

Disclaimer - I was sent this outfit free of charge by the team at Marisota but the words are all my own and I was not paid to write about it. Thanks for supporting the brands that support this blog.
