It's time for my last instalment of my collaboration with
, and I think I may of
saved the best till last? It's up for debate as my last two posts we're both quite something,
if I do say so myself!
It might seem funny to see me in such a feminine dress, I don't think I've ever debuted anything like this on my blog before, but that's not to say I'm not into it. In fact, after wearing this frilly number I'm now on the hunt for dresses similar that I can add to my wardrobe. I've always loved a ruffle, I even went on about my love of them in my
so I'll try not to go on too much in this post, but that might be difficult because
, look at this beautiful frilly dress of dreams!

Let me introduce you to the
. This piece may be considered a little kid's dream dolls dress, I can imagine a toddler wanting to play dress up and ram raid their mothers make-up draw, their is a child-like feel to it which makes it even more beautiful to me. It's not often someone would have the courage to wear a dress like this, which is the main reason why I love it. It has a couture feel to it, an almost fancy dress element that makes it all the more magical. It's rare you see garments like this, but when you do you remember your youth and how fun it is to get dressed up and have fun with fashion again. It definitely took me out of my comfort zone, and that's my favourite thing about styling, if something makes me feel daring and confident then it's a winner for me. Challenging our style is so important, and I'm so glad I challenged mine with this look!
There are two big reasons as to why I was drawn to this dress, the first being the colour. My favourite trend and colour combo this season is certainly red and pink, which is quite bizarre as these used to be two colours I wouldn't often wear, let alone together! I always told myself I looked terrible in red, classing it as my least favourite colour, I even longed to be able to look good in red lipstick but told myself I could never pull it off. Now I've gotten over myself and realised I can wear what I want and not actually give a damn about what other people think, or more to the point how I tell myself I think I look when I actually look OK. It's a daring combo and I've seen many people turn their noses up at it, but I'm obsessed and will be mixing these two colours all through winter to bring a little vibrancy to my life.
The second reason being the style, it takes huge reference on designers like Gucci and Miu Miu with the shape and of course the glorious frills. It's a very British design and throws back to the Victorian era or style, where sheer overlaying and ruffled detailing where huge. I wanted to keep with the inspiration of designers like these and pair it with my new thing,
socks and heels
. For my first post with Sister Jane I teamed the
suit with glitter socks and chunky heels, and this dress just had to be worn with them too but this time I swapped the grey glitter with pink. If you're going to wear a dress like this you've got to go all the way and style it daringly. I'm so in love with the entirety of this look, and now I've embraced what it feels like to wear a dress of this calibre, I'll definitely be buying pieces like it more often. It's without a doubt a show stopper and perfect for dinner dates and evening events, or of course everyday wear if you're feeling confident. I guarantee the feeling of self love and confidence come included in this dress, trust me when I say you'll be spinning around and dancing your way through the day once you've got this on, I certainly was (
but then when am I not?
