Brilliantly Bold

Sometimes dressing in in a bold dress on a dull day is what you need. The weather is gloomy ad winter is setting in so why not throw on some heels, your favourite jewellery and act like you’re a total diva?

As this season does bring in the excuse to weather all-black all the time, I went with one of my darker dresses that still holds an element of excitement. I’m obsessed with the silhouette this dress provides as the thick band of elastic gives the impression that I have a really defined waist which is always a bonus. The half-sleeve and lace around the neckline are the perfect little touches to make this dress complete and help it to become the centre-piece of a look. I never really have to pair this dress with accessories, as they take away from the pretty print. Suede is one of my all-time favourite materials (alongside velvet) and I’ll never say no to a suede shoe. These amazingly comfy wrap wedges were bought at the beginning of summer and have become my go-to shoe… so much that I bought another pair in ‘Nude’! Comfort in heels is essential, and it’s also really important I find shoes that elongate my legs and never make my feet look bigger. These wedges do the trick, and subtly match with the undertone colours in my dress.
