Weekend OOTN, FOTN and NOTN: Celeb inspired New Look cut-out shoulder dress

Hey loves!

I hope you've had a fab Easter Weekend :-) I've certainly eaten more chocolate over the past two days than I have done in the entire year! LOL

So recently I read a blog post by Jenni Farley, AKA Jersey Shore's JWOWW, titled 'Fresh To Death: Sexy Shoulders' where she discussed the trend of cutout shoulders. Here's what she had to say...

"Baring sexy shoulders is a slimming look because it elongates your figure and brings more attention upward. I went with a cutout look when Snooks and I were on Good Morning America back in February and more recently was snapped taking this style to the gym, so it’s definitely versatile."

I did some further research and noticed some of my fave celebs have rocked the trend recently...
From L-R: Kim Kardashian, Sammi Giancola (Jersey Shore), Fergie (Black Eyed Peas) in cutout shoulder dresses

Seeing these sexy ladies rock the trend inspired me to do the same, and I worked the look on Saturday night with friends in town. Here's my OOTN, FOTN and NOTN :-)

I loved adding a pop of colour with the hot pink nails and lips - the outfit would've been a bit bland otherwise!
