There have been times in every girl’s life when they have been subjected to the butterflies of The First Date. We have all set out, in a flurry of hope, only to find ourselves inappropriately dressed for the occasion.

We want to hear about these stories!

Our competition, Dating Dress Diary, is a chance for all ladies to share their tales of ill-fated fashion forays that have twirled out of the door with the best intentions, only to be wrong-footed by an inappropriate occasion.

Jeans to a sophisticated dinner party? Sequins to a Sunday afternoon stroll in the park? We want to hear all the highs and lows.

More importantly, we also want to know what items you might pick for an idyllic and special date from our range of clothing. In addition to sharing those secret stories of style shame, the winning entrant will create a post on their blog detailing an outfit that illuminates and stuns for a first date to their chosen occasion. Each item needs to link to Coast so we know you’ve done your research…

The competition will run from 14th January 2013 until the 9th February 2013.  Bloggers must leave a comment on the Coast blog post with a link to their entry in order to qualify for the competition.

The lucky winner will walk away with a voucher worth £100 to spend at Coast, online or in-store.
