House of Cb Must Haves

Oh, House of CB, where do I even begin? I have been a regular customer for over a year now therefore I know I can offer an unbiased, unsponsored, real review. This is my favourite brand, if you were to ask me where I think you should buy a true treat for yourself, it would undoubtably be House Of CB. The brand’s online presence is very heavy, and you often hear Youtubers claiming so much about this label, and I’m here to confirm it all. The quality is unreal, the fits are breathtaking and the designs are the hottest on the market. I am very lucky to own and have worn many pieces from the fun numbers such as Katrin, Gia and Ella to the elegant timeless ones such as Carlotta and Loretta. Using my love and long relationship with the brand, I present to you the top must have pieces that are currently available online. 



I have had my heart set on this dress ever since it was released. A 2020 version of Mariah Carey's dress from the 1991 Grammy Awards. The energy it radiates is something that I needed. Take your classic little black dress but increase the levels of extra and class. This dress makes me think of one of my favourite films – Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Despite Holly’s dress being longer, having a different neckline and no rhinestone detailing, Gloriana also emits a rich feeling. This is a piece that will never go out of style, will not look dated and can literally be passed down. This dress will receive the same reaction tomorrow as it would in twenty years time. This is yet another reason why Gloriana is worth her £139 price tag. My relationship with mini lengths is love or hate, but not with this brand since the material is thick and sturdy. This means that the dress doesn’t rise up when walking or dancing but stays the same length. The same principle applies to the black velvet and gold sequin mini dress Silvaja from a few seasons ago.


Silva Corset Top


This is piece probably takes the title of the most beautiful item in my wardrobe. When I look at this, I see Hailey Bieber's wedding rehearsal dress designed by Vivienne Westwood. The shape also reminds me of the upper half of my Loretta dress, so I knew I was going to love it. This statement top retails for £69 and currently is only available in this pearl ivory. First of all, the colour is wealthy. The chic ivory colour palette is often connotated with class. Likewise, the material choice of satin is unforgettable. Wearing this corset makes me feel like I’m at my wedding reception or having dinner overlooking the Eiffel Tower. House of CB is rightly known for their structure and boning and this lives up to the reputation, the clothes cinch you in and flatter every aspect of your figure. The sleeves and neckline are what completely sold me on this piece, the heavy straps carefully laying on your shoulders whilst displaying your décolletage effortlessly. I have seen many looks created with this corset and a pair of jeans but for my non jean wearers, black cigarette trousers or a black satin bias cut midi skirt will look just as good.




Here we have another little black dress; this one makes me feel like a modern day 1950s movie star. I can’t exactly pinpoint what it is that gives me this feeling, but I can easily picture this piece with a chunky jewel or pearl necklace, red lip, Hollywood curls and a white fur shawl. But for a lighter alternative, a Lily Rose Depp makeup look with any accent colour of your choice and it is just as much of a showstopper. The asymmetric shape is eye catching, yet it is cut in a soft way especially when compared to Oh Polly’s ‘One Night Only’ which is a lot more dramatic. House of CB dresses are so commonly loved because they really do fit your body like a glove through the way they are made. For instance, ChouChou features a bra like back closure under the dress zip itself, this ensures your bust is well fitted and secure. The simplicity of this dress is what makes it timeless, it is plain and subtle yet will be noticed by everyone – a real example of less is more. If you are after the rhinestone energy that Gloriana radiates, I recommend pairing ChouChou with the black Charme belt. This number can still be bought online for £129.

I do not doubt that this list will grow with further collections since Conna Walker never fails to amaze me.
