Cruising with the Karen Millen SS18 Collection

If you follow my Instastories, you will know that I recently attended my favourite store, Karen Millen Cardiff, to preview the new Karen Millen SS18 collection.  Thanks to the drop dead gorgeous Leyla, I had so much fun going through the new collection and picked out some beautiful dresses and accessories, for my forthcoming cruise holiday on board this stunning ship.

I have been shopping at KM since I was a 17-year-old fledgling fashionista in Liverpool and the brand has seen me through some key milestones as a woman.

However, in recent times I felt the brand went astray and sometimes I struggled to find anything I wanted to wear or buy.

When I attended the SS18 preview in Cardiff, I wanted to wear and buy everything!!

The SS18 collection is beautiful and in my opinion, is a resplendent return to form for the KM brand.

SS18 is like KM of old but styled up in a thoroughly modern way, with renewed attitude.

Designs are pretty yet edgy, with lashings of leopard print, vibrant colour, Pretty Woman polka dots and nautical stripes.

Branded metalwork, zips, fine embroidery and high quality crystal embellishments are back in abundance but most importantly, the super-feminine, distinctive KM silhouette is back!!

Dresses like this one, are exactly why I fell in love with the KM brand all those years ago.

Karen Millen SS18 has something for every woman’s wardrobe and for those taking a cruise holiday this year, the collection has everything from bodycon knits – perfect for chilly Southampton sailaways, to head-turning stretch satin dresses – perfect for glamourous evenings at sea.

If you would like to see which KM pieces I am taking away on my April 2018 cruise holiday, be sure to follow me here on Insta.

If you would like to see the SS18 collection in full, why not pop into your local KM store or have a look online here.

Massive thanks to Lorraine, Leyla and Rachel who always provide a super attentive, friendly and professional service at KM Cardiff and who are #BEMOREKAREN personified.
