Outfit

As we all know a little black dress is considered the best staple to have in your wardrobe. Until recently I must admit that the all important LBD was missing from my life; I rarely wear black and I could never find a black dress that wasn't too plain. When I found this dress from Review, that all changed. I love the pretty white detailing; it provides the potential for a classy look and is extremely versatile. Black and white is always such a lovely combination. I believe this dress could be worn to a wide variety of occassions. This is one of my current favourite outfits and is definitely fast becoming a go to outfit when I have nothing else to wear. I love it how a black dress is such a blank canvas for accessorising. I finally had the chance to show you how I styled my dalmatian print shoes which I posted here (I bought these for such a bargain price!) I was very excited when I received this little bag for Christmas with almost an identical print. I really adore being this matching. 

I'm sure you've noticed that I've had the same hairstyle for a very long time now. I'm trying to decide what to do with my hair and the bun is a simple style I can do every day while thinking; I wouldn't want to make any spontaneous decisions that I regret. I don't think I want to cut my hair short again; it took so much effort to keep it straight all the time. But at the same time, my hair is really thin and I hate my natural hair texture so growing it doesn't really work that well. I can't have this same hairstyle forever as much as I do love it so I need to work something out.

That's a lovely design on the yoke of your black dress. Your belt and shoes coordinate very nicely with it. I just read a post by Vanessa Mercado at Voguely Van titled Big, Sexy Hair in 5 Minutes (or less) though that would be a big change in hairstyle. I think your current hairstyle looks nice and I liked the one you had previously as well.

Sam said...

Hi sweetie, this is such a beautiful look, love the black and white combination!

Your bag is so sweet! Good luck deciding what to do with your hair, I like it like this though! Especially with a bow xxx

aki! said...

I really like the chest detailing here too.

I wouldn't recommend you cut your hair too short. It does take so dreadfully long to grow out. If you're getting bored with it, give it a trim.

Lovely outfit!

Izzy said...

aw this is a really cute look! love the way you mixed up prints with the dalmatian shoes and hair bow! the dress is stunning too, and you can definitely work the hair bun! :) it's very elegant and simple. my bun rarely stays up, and even when it does it looks messy/uptight schoolteacher-ish lol.
