I Want it Wednesday – Silver Dresses

Most people want sequins and silver for parties, but to be honest I love the idea of silver dresses in the daytime. With an oversized jumper or man-cardi they’re the epitome of casual, easy sexiness with a boyish vibe (a la Rumi of Fashiontoast – who else?). It’s the kind of thing that works for places like New York though, I’m not sure the streets of London would appreciate my subverted eveningwear and people might mistake me for a hooker. BUT it’s still a cool look and I wanna rock it out sometime in the warmer months.

These three dresses are from Nasty Gal. Not sure where to find other silver dresses – let me know if you know a good place. I really need to stop featuring Nasty Gal or people are gonna think they pay me (they don’t), but their styling is just too good.

I must be the last blogger to jump on the LOVE bandwagon, but somehow I’ve managed to bypass this brand until now. Well I’m making up for lost time and stocking up on their dresses in particular, with their gorgeous prints and floaty fabrics. They look very feminine and girly, but I love how they can be toughened up for a more rocky, boho look a la Native Fox and  Pure Lovers.

The clothes are pretty simple but sometimes that’s exactly what you want, and there’s enough interesting prints and fabrics to stop the clothes from becoming too simple. I also love the mix of evening and day-wear aesthetics – dresses like this tutu-skirted red number work just as well for a relaxed day look with a parka and wellies as they would for upcoming Christmas and New Year parties.

What do you think? 🙂

It was love at first sight. Who couldn’t be seduced by that beautiful berry colour, the intricate lacing, the delicate balance between girly and sexy?

This outfit was chosen to show my support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which begins tomorrow (October). My Godma was affected by this so it’s an important issue for me. Show your support by posting an all-pink outfit during October and I’ll link to all of them in this post 🙂

dress: French Connection, knit: Zara, belt: Zara, shoes: Schuh,necklaces: River Island, Forever 21, cuff: ASOS

It was weirdly warm out today, despite the rain and dark clouds. So I threw on a girly white summer dress and nude knit (isn’t Zara the best for knitwear atm?) but autumned it up with a black belt and black boots. My empty wallet means that I have to recycle last season’s clothes, but I like mixing seasons up this way. Plus, you find you can get a lot more out of your clothes when you don’t designate them to a particular season.
