This weeks Guest Stylist pick on the @Girlmeetsdress blog is from Allie-May Redmond, writer of The Friday GirlÂ blog. Keep reading for more information about her, as well as her top 5 dresses from our website!
I love the romantic element of this dress. Itâ€™s lace detail and off the shoulder design makes it the perfect holiday dress. All it needs is a Mediterranean sunset to make the picture perfect.
This oversized, pattered Marc by Marc Jacobs number is perfect for a girls day out. The collar and button detail makes it effortlessly chic – a dress that could easily transfer from day to night. Could we ask for more?
Finding the perfect â€˜wedding guestâ€™ outfit can be tricky, however, this metallic, classic, knee length dress will let you shine from day to night. Teamed with the simplest hair accessory (like â€˜Adele from Bundle Maclaren) you will nail the perfect combination of contemporary and classic.
Transport your wardrobe back in time – 2016 is fun but the 1920â€™s looks pretty cool too. Heads will certainly turn with this beautiful double layered, velvet number. Pair it with simple black shoes and a feather headband to complete this 1920â€™s flapper inspired look.
This, without a doubt is my favourite item on GMD. I love Moschinoâ€™s bold statements and how they inject fun into fashion. Why not be playful and experiment with a bold print or design? Whatâ€™s the worst that could happen?

Your first ever dress was:Â I was always dressing up as a child, I remember when I was 13 a saved up for my first dress to wear to the Feathers Ball, it was short and white, probably nylon, and not something any parent would want their daughter wearing! Eeek
Your most expensive dress: My wedding dress! It was Caroline Castliagno, and I loved it, it is a shame you only get to wear those dresses once!
Mini or maxi:Â When my legs are brown in the winter definitely a mini, but both times I was pregnant I spent the whole time in maxi dresses (and for quite a while after before I shed the post baby weight)
What type of dress would you wear to a cocktail party: Something fitted, and red or black! I love red it always makes you stand out at feel viviacious, black can hide a whole host of sins.
What is your most memorable dress moment: When I tripped over my dress on my wedding day! And had a green grass stain on it, glamourous, and also when I met my husband in a black backless Arrogant Cat dress, I still have that dress and wanted to wear it the other day, he firmly told me I couldnâ€™t get away with it anymore, being backless it was pretty provocative!
Dresses or trousers: For an event a killer dress always stands out, but some trousers can give you those Beyonce curves and Millie Mackintosh legs – well maybe on a very good day!

1- How would you describe your style in one word?
I would describe my style as eclectic!
Here are Zohra’s Top 5 GMD Dresses
This dress from Beulah is such a classic beauty, and I adore the silk satin material of it adorned with scattered hearts. Â Itâ€™s striking with its clashes ofÂ midnightÂ blue with natural colours. You can make do and complete the elegant look by piecing it with an embellished clutch for that spot on timeless beauty look.
What instantly drew me to this gorgeous piece was its lace panelled top section and the striking sheer red colour of the dress. The subtle pleats at the bottom of the dress coupled with the lace panels is a guarantee to add illusions of curves!
This dress is SO Grace Kelly, with its pleated neckline and thigh high slit, youâ€™re sure to make a grand entrance. What I think this dress does best is that whilst it is pretty sultry in a subtle way, it just oozes with glamour and class!
Whatâ€™s better then sweeping into an event with an indigo silk-satin charmeuse gown that puts you in the spotlight?! This dress is to die for with its silk-chiffon ruffles falling gracefully across the bodice and that train will be sure to add a statement to your outfit. I thought this is a perfect dress to channel your inner Kate Middleton with the class but be a bit out there with the added train and glitzy embellishments!
On those cold nights, thereâ€™s nothing quite like a bit of arm coverage especially when it looks as good as this! Embellished with sequins and beads, thereâ€™s a tad Midsummer Night Dream feel about this dress and thatâ€™s what I love. Itâ€™s exquisitely graceful and looks perfect for a wedding or ball. I especially love how the dress looks free flowing and floaty so you can swish that skirt as youâ€™re asked for a dance ðŸ˜‰
