The Model and Me: Montique spring-summer 2019

The Model and Me: Montique spring-summer 2019

Nikki Parkinson Fashion, The Model and Me 13 Comments

Whenever the cocktail or formal event dressing question pops up in our Facebook group, I usually point our members to White Label NobaSacha Drake and Moonlight bird … but I’ve found a new label to add to that go-to list.

Say hello to Montique. Montique offers a ready-to-wear collection of elegant, contemporary event wear for every occasion, from bridesmaids to mother of the bride, formal wear, racewear and cocktail wear … with many styles offering up to size 20.

I fell in love with the below cocktail dress at first sight and now I’m hanging for a suitable occasion to trot her out.

I have to say, I was unsure whether this dress would work for me but let us all thank the power of stretch and sequins for making a girl feel a million dollars.

This dress slides on beautifully and feels incredibly comfortable on. It hugs your shape but not in a way where I feel like an over-stuffed sausage. You see just a hint of the shape of the lining, which creates the perfect silhouette. I’m 166cm and the sequinned overlay falls to a perfect spot for me. While the lining is shorter, it doesn’t feel too short because of the overlay.

The colour – kind of like a mushroom colour – offset by silver sequins, throws the look of a pewter finish, a combination that feels fabulous on. 

A pair of earrings, a clutch and some heels are all you need to complete this outfit and be event ready in a flash.

  1. Hi Nikki
    Could you show different angles when you do these posts? It’s really hard to tell how the dress looks in this post.
    Thanks
