I don’t do the whole “little black dress” thing that often because I love colour and especially colour combinations. So when I do wear a black dress you can be sure it’s not going to be with black shoes and accessories. I was going to wear orange with this dress but those green snake print shoes were looking out at me, begging to be worn so green won and you know how much I love green.

Black Closet Dress

I love how elegant this dress from Closet is and I have expressed my love for Closet dresses before in this post. The fitted top and flared bottom create the perfect A-line. The belt with its lovely gold hardware nips in the waist nicely. That neckline along with the little cap sleeves make me feel very Jackie O.

Green Snake Print Court


The green snake print shoes with their pointed toes are from Enzo Angiolini, I picked them up on the House of Fraser website during one of their brand reduction sales.

Michael Kors Clutch

The Michael Kors clutch happens to match perfectly. It’s no accident, I got the bag first and as soon as I saw the shoes I knew they would be mine. I knew it was meant to be when I saw they were reduced.

Green bracelet

I picked the bracelet up years ago in a market while on holiday.

Green Pulse Accessories Earrings

The earrings are also a few years old and they are from Pulse Accessories. Pearl earrings would also look class with this dress if you were wearing nude shoes.

How do you accessorise a black dress, with bright colours, nudes, or more black?

Today’s dress is my new favourite dress and probably my favourite outfit post so far. In fact I like it so much I find it hard to see how I’m going to top it anytime soon, but do keep reading future posts because I sure as hell will try.

I love the colours and the print of the dress; it’s J’aime La Vie from Carraig Donn. One of the girls was complimenting it by saying that the colours were perfect for now; bright but not too bright. Nothing worse than walking into a shop on a cold, wet day and everything is super summery; taunting you.

The neckline here is lovely, quite different from anything else that I have. The chain detail means there is no need for a necklace. I also love the fit, I feel like such a lady in this dress.

My nude court shoes are surprisingly comfortable and they stay on my heel, but they are from a local shoe shop, so not a recognisable brand.

The bracelet is Knight and Day, also from Carraig Donn, you may have noticed the matching necklace in this post.

This little bag is from Pennys, sure where would I be going without something from Pennys.


This is me wearing the dress on Saturday night with a dusky pink blazer from Awear.
