001. Hey Guys, This outfit was put together with the Dolce and Gabbana AW12 collection in mind. As you have probably already guessed I am heavily influenced by the whole Baroque print trend at the moment with the black and gold printed dresses and embellished accessories. I saw some in river island and if you can remember from this post, that I wanted to incorporate my DIY pieces into an outfit. lucky enough I got this Baroque Print Dress from AX Paris for only twenty five pound which is a bargain compared to those printed dress on either Topshop or the ones sold in River Island. I know sometimes its about quality of the piece that you pay for, but when its just a trend and you think maybe next season it will all be over and would it still be fashionable, you kind of don’t want to spend so much.  This dress has an open back which is sexy and perfect for christmas parties. The skirt is very floaty and adds a sense of femininity, also I got a size ten because I thought I could grow into it, but the arms are quite baggy on me, if you cant see from the photos, I should of got a smaller size. 

002. I paired it nicely with this Gold Leaf Necklace gifted by Merrin and Gussy, its an Australian company founded by the lovely Ben from Lookbook. It took a while to be delivered but Im glad I waited it fits perfectly with this style. I’m also wearing my Black and Gold Cape that I bought from Ebay for twenty pounds I saw them in store a couple of years ago and I didn’t really want to buy one for sixty pounds or so, so I waited until they came back into trend. This one fits nicely with the whole black and gold trend and its super cosy to wear in the wintery weather. The bag I got from OASAP and its my favourite bag at the moment, I love it so much, apart from it does smell a bit fishy which is putting me off from opening it up in public, I’ve bought some air fresheners and sprayed it with perfume and such but nothing seems to get rid of the smell? any tips? 

I hope you guys enjoy the photos, I had so much fun taking them today, but I must stop procrastinating and continue to finish my final major project, I’ll get back to you in the middle of next week, for now have a great weekend,

Lots of Love,

Charlotte x
