Paint It Black

I have never been one for fluorescent colours, ever. Due to my rather vibrant natural hair colour, I have always steered away from anything too bright or loud colour wise. Until I saw this dress!

Dress - Simply Be, Jacket - Elvi, Boots - Evans, Leggings - Newlook Inspire.

As soon as I saw this dress it caught my eye but due to my precious aversion to loud colours, I umm'ed and ahh'ed for weeks over it. Until one day I thought 'why not? I can always return it if it's really that awful'. But when I received it, I could not have loved it more instantly if I had tried. I sized up by 2 sizes because I love how a dropped waist looks if it's slightly oversized and I'm really glad i did as it is cut slightly smaller than the size stated. But the fit in this size is perfect. I am a total sucker for dropped waists - I think they look adorable and the brush stroke effect pattern is super unusual! The fact the base colour is black I believe is what allows me to feel comfortable with the other loud feature colours, which is great! I could not recommend this dress highly enough if I tried, it's perfect for casual or more dressy and I received so many compliments when wearing it!

This leather look jacket, with gold detailing from Elvi is always to die for! After the still devastating loss of my Beth Ditto for Evans leather look cropped jacket (I literally wore it to death), I was really struggling to find something that would fill that void in my wardrobe, until
This came a long! I love leather jackets but I am always wary I may end up looking too butch or too 'biker chick' which are about as far from me as possible, so the fact I fell in love with this as soon as I put it on for the first time was an added bonus! The fit is fantastic, the material is soft and fares well in the rain and it can add a touch of edge and glamour to any outfit!

Finding two pieces that bring me such joy really leaves me feeling so satisfied haha!

Lots Of Love,
