    If you missed out on the M&S constellation dress all the bloggers were wearing, I feel you. With its galaxy print, pleated skirt and bell sleeves, it was the perfect mid-season dress. Now M&S are re-stocking it soon (early November though date tbc), but if you really can’t wait, then I’ve got THE perfect dress to make you forget all about it.

    Enter this Rixo beauty, freshly landed on NAP. If you haven’t heard of London brand Rixo yet, you will soon. It was founded by Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey, who hand draw every pattern on their vintage-inspired designs.

    This particular dress is their super popular ‘Camellia’ dress (it was literally everywhere at London Fashion Week), which has been updated for party season with a midnight sky-inspired print that includes a crescent moon and stars.

    We love the side split and nipped-in waist, which you can accentuate with a silk back belt.

    You can accessorise it with heels, and in fact, I’d say it would go wonderfully with those M&S kitten heels that have divided everyone. I personally love them.

    In terms of jewellery, keep things simple with a delicate gold necklace or statement earrings for the evening.

    I reckon this one will sell out as fast as the M&S one, so you know what you have to do if you want it…
