I was reading this week’s Look magazine (17th October 2011) when I came across a double page spread titled ‘The Secret New Online Labels The Celebs Love’ (page 16). Sure enough, “the glamourous online hit” Celeb Boutique was featured.

I first discovered Celeb Boutique earlier this year when I was reading one of my favourite blogs online and my eye caught an advert which led me to the retailer‘s website. I was very impressed with the dresses on offer and couldn’t resist making an order.  The concept behind the online store is that you can get the same popular outfits as worn by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Amber Rose.

Quite a few British celebrities have been spotted wearing the retailer’s dresses including Abbey Clancy, The SaturdaysRochelle, and TOWIE’s Amy Childs, to name a few.

I went to the online shop and purchased myself a sexy little gold number last month for my birthday. I bought the ‘Kimmy Adelisa’ Gold Strapless Bodycon Dress priced at £89.99.

I was chuffed with how quickly my order arrived and was pleasantly surprised with the cute ribbon-tied flat box it was presented in.

This dress was inspired by an extremely similar bodycon dress that Kim Khardashian (whose style I absolutely adore) wore. She has such a gorgeous figure that she could pretty much wear anything and look stunning. For women who aren’t as voluptuous as her, this dress gives promise of holding you in, smoothing you out and accentuating the curves you do have.

Kim wore hers with a gorgeous pair of gold, studded Christian Louboutins, but since I don’t have a disposable income to rival hers, I found an equally gorgeous pair of heels from New Look to go with the outfit.

I accessorised with a gold brown gemstone necklace, chain drop earings and a shiny gold clutch bag.

The dress actually does what it says in the tin (for want of a better phrase). It fits your body so well and tightly that it almost gives the illusion that you’re wearing body paint.

Now, I wasn’t aiming to look like a celeb or imitate anyone’s style. I just simply wanted a fancy, figure-hugging dress to wear on a night out to celebrate turning a year older, and it just so happened those that were on offer appealed to me.  Really happy with my purchase and would definitely buy a few more dresses from there.

The media have hyped up Michael Phelps as being “the greatest olympian ever”. And I take my hat off to him for achieving eight gold medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. However, for me, the star of this Olympics has to be Usain Bolt of Jamaica. The 22-year old winner and world record breaker of the 100m (9.69 secs) as well as gold medallist of the 200m event, in which he broke Michael Johnson’s 1996 world record of 19.32 seconds with a very close 19.30 seconds

Watch the 100m final and 200m final to see for yourself why this guy truly lives up to his surname.
