THE RECKLESS & THE BRAVE

Dress* // BANK
Earrings // Topshop
Hand chain* // BANK
Necklace // Etsy (one off listing)
Bag* // Paul's Boutique
Sandals // River Island (old)

Apparently every time I do an outfit post I'm feeling quite summery.  I'm cutting down on the heels and busting out all the sandals I've forgotten about!  I know what you're thinking - Paul's Boutique..really?  Honestly I used to be the most anti-PB person you could find, so you can imagine what was running through my head when I received an email from them.  However; they've scrapped their old image and have brought out a whole new range of bags with a much more luxe and fashion-forward image, while still keeping the fun personality of the old designs, such as the removable keyring on this one which I think is actually pretty awesome, and would look cute dangling off a neutral clutch for a night out!  The holographic stripe is so unique and love how the colours of the dress pick out the different tones.  Because of the size it also means I can fit my laptop in it which, as a blogger, is so useful.
Anyway I've babbled on for far too long!  I hope you all like the outfit!  Going off on another tangent, the lovely Christina who runs a decoden phone case shop on Etsy called 'God it Feels So Good' has recently made me a custom iphone case and posted a video of herself making it which you can see here.  I just love it so much and can't wait to receive it, as I've wanted a decoden case for so long but haven't been able to justify paying nearly £30 which is what the majority of sellers charge.  However, Christina only charges a humble £10 for most cases, and is always adding new designs so check out her shop here!
