COGNAC LILAC











Gabby Sequin Dress* // Motel Rocks
Necklace // eBay
Frilly Lace Socks* // OASAP
Spiked Litas // Jeffrey Campbell
Rings // Rachel Sudlow, market stalls

I've featured this dress in a couple of posts now, featuring me wearing it at parties and the #MotelXmas event but I have now *finally* taken some proper outfit photos in it.  As I've mentioned before this is literally the perfect winter dress, tried and tested by yours truly.  Stick on a pair of sheer tights and you can hardly feel the cold when outside at a party, as the dress has a velvet base as well as being lined and obviously the long sleeves are a total bonus.  Some people might have kept it simple with minimal accessories but that's not my style, so obviously I teamed it with my Jeffrey Campbell spiked litas (which they are now selling on Motel Rocks!!) because they're awesome, and the frilly socks add a nice touch too.

  12. Aren't you freezing with these damn sheer tights?? I mean, they look sexy, but I would freeze my ass off! I'm wearing at least one thick pair and still freezing :D As for the dress I love it, but it looks awfully short! Can you walk in it without exposing something? (I have a similar dress and it's aaalways dangerous to walk in it.)

  16. Your style is absolutely faultless! LOVE your pink hair especially teamed with the seagreen/blue sequin dress! You look like a mermaid. I'm definitely following now!
    Quick question about the dress: I always find that sequin dresses are somewhat "heavy" and a little shapeless- obviously it doesn't look this way on you but you look teeny tiny. What is the fabric like on this one?

  24. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.
