dress: topshop
faux fur stole: H&M
necklace: primark

This look probably defines the look I'm going for this A/W. Velvet, Fur, Sparkles, Black, Sort of semi-gothic but still fitting in with my normal ~girly~ style. The H&M fur stole I've had for absolutely years now and I'm seeing them in the shops loads at the moment, cannot reccomend getting one enough as they add so much to a outfit! The dress was expensive even for me at *cough* £48 *cough* BUT its absolutely gorgeous. I really got excited when I saw it, and its been a long time since a item of clothing has made my heart skip a beat! Im also planning on wearing it to the Cosmo Blog Awards. Paired with my faux Sam Endleman style booties (found via Victoria, I have the low ones!) and some polka dot ankle socks.

<insert shameless plug>Oh well now speaking of the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, Would be amazing if you could vote for me as "Established Fashion Blog"! The awards are in a few weeks time now so excuse me if I'm being a little pushy! I dont mind if I dont win to be honest as some of my good friends in the blogging world and people I look up as peers are in the same category! Cant wait to see all the nominees at the awards do too, so many amazing bloggers nominated! Some I've met before and some I haven't, so its really exciting!</end shameless plug>

  7. Lovely dress, was admiring it in the Westfield topshop the other day! It's the perfect shape and I hope they do it in other colours/fabrics as I have so much black stuff these days. I've splashed out on a new dress too, I guess it will make up for any possible defeat! Most of all I'm looking forward to hanging out and hope we can have a repeat of the hotel room at LFW!

  29. I tried that dress on today and loved it but decided to sleep on it as I wasn't sure if it would work as a day dress. You've just proved it definitely does, so back to Topshop I go tomorrow to buy it. My poor bank account.
    I love your fur stole. I'm after a nice black one at the moment.
