If there is one colour you will find me wearing a lot of these days it’s black. I never owned a single item of black clothing growing up but now I have a healthy (bordering on obese) amount of black in my closet! Of course I haven’t forgotten my colourful side, so don’t worry I still have plenty of bright clothing in the mix.
This all black outfit is one of my favourites at the moment….
….I mean HELLO it incorporates lace and velvet – only my two favourite fabrics ever! – both pieces are, of course, from Blackmilk Clothing. I have a legit addiction to this brand…..my downfall came when they introduced AFTERPAY. Both the best and the worst thing to happen to me. On one hand I have banging outfits every day but on the other I am constantly paying off my spontaneous midnight shopping sprees each fortnight.
Anyhoo – if you have fallen in love with these pieces like I did, the lace top is called The Flouncy Lace Top and the velvet pinafore dress is The Velvet Pinafore Pocket Dress – yep you read correctly the dress has POCKETS!
Can we take a moment to appreciate the shiny goodness that are these boots from Goodbye Bread?! As a self-proclaimed glitter/shiny things addict I was immediately drawn to these boots when I came across them online. I managed to justify the purchase of these by telling myself “well you don’t own any shiny shoes like these” and “I’m buying the dress so I might as well buy the shoes the model is wearing then I have a complete outfit!” – what can I say, I am easily persuaded ha. Although I love the patent shininess it’s the clear heel that I really love about these boots, reminds me of Cinderella…or Kim K I guess haha.
Of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a shout out to my makeup. Since I was clad all in black I wanted to add a bright pop to my face. I love how these shades really bring out my green eyes. I have listed the makeup deets below:
