|Finally! I was wanting to photoshoot this dress since May probably!|
And as soon as I had these studded shoes delivered I knew I would wear them along!
But it wasn't until last Tuesday when we finally had a chance to take this outfit out.
Much more pictures and text as follows!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this unusual silk creation @Asos, so I ordered it straight away for the price of about 45 pounds (it was 3 years ago, so I don't remember precisely). Later the same evening, still impressed by the exquisite design, I went for an investigation about the brand, which is Jovonna London. My heart definetely skipped a beat for the second time then, when I saw the exact dress on Jovonna's site offered for 20 pounds only. Even with 8 pounds on top for shipping, it was still cheaper, so I ordered it from Jovonna London too and later sent the Asos one back, hehe :)
Althought this white dress has a classy black trim, I would say it comprises some Moschino-like playful vibe.
Not sure what's the source of inspiration behind this cut, but it is really flirty!
Volants create an extra volume at the hips&shoulders, but at the same time the bold black lines sculpt the hourglass silhouette emphasizing the waist.
Such a nice bonus for the square-bodied like me! ;)
Though having a strong character of it's own, this dress remains a timeless and versatile piece.
In fact there are several ways in which I imagine this can be styled:
- total classy white&black Chanel'ish look with ballerinas and pearls
- an edgy take with the help of studded rocking heels and leather jacket
- as a background for neon accessories (opt for a white coat on top)
|The story of these shoes deserves a separate paragraph.|
It was one peculiar May day, which started with the wrong breakfast and continued in the wrong way.
The thing is, I love to have Kellog's for breakfast during the summertime. But as I prefer my corn flakes crunchy - I always pour the milk in the bowl first... That morning however I did it the other way round!
I was pretty surprized by myself, and I remebmer tweeting that fact wondering what is to come next...
Half an hour later I finally took my much admired shoes for a ride - and to my surprize it didn't take even 5 minutes for one of the heels to bend (I have a proof pic on my Instagram somewhere)!
Ok, now if you want to now how that akward day ended - I got my new cluthch bag stolen in the evening.
If you want to continue reading about the shoes - please continue! :)
So I wrote to Amazon customer support asking whether they offer some warranity for the footware they're selling - and in response I was provided with the address of Dollybird official e-mail. I tried reaching the manufacturer directly twice, but with no response from their side turned back to Amazon. The next reply I got from them stated that the replacement pair is on it's way, whilst the original pair has to be sent back. I had to pay for the postage myself of course, but worth mentioning here that I was reimbursed the cost afterwards. The replacement pair seemed to have a "bug" in detailing - that''s why I only wore it for the shooting and sent back too. Hope I'll get my refund for that one and finally quit buying footware online, as it's just too much of a doing.
|Although it wasn't sunny anymore by the time we got out, I couldn't let these sunnies stay in the case.|
