So, here is one of the outfits I bought the other week. I wore this out for dinner so I decided to wear the dress with heels, red lips and the whole shebang!
The dress fits my body really well, it has a built-in slip dress underneath (as the dress is very sheer), it then allows the top half of the dress which wraps over, to be slightly baggy and show off the lace of the slip. The skirt is fitted almost like a pencil skirt, giving it quite a sexy feel. Its slit quite high at the back but the sheer fabric is quite long and sits between the knee and the ankle.
I love how this dress incorporates 2 big AW13 trends, winter florals and tartan/ check. Although this dress is dark and feels quite autumnal, I will wear this in the summer too. We saw so many catwalks at fashion week showing vampish summer wear, so this will be perfect for next season too!
I added patient, mock croc accessories to this winter dress. A Ralph Lauren black clutch bag and some very old Faith shoes- which I still love. My bright red shoes, lips and nails tied the accessories and the dress together perfectly. Equally black and midnight blue would also work well with this.
I love this dress, I’m looking forward to wearing it more casually with boots and my leather, it will give it more of an edge.
I’m wearing: Zara dress, Ralph Lauren clutch bag and Faith shoes.
