I have recently started a new job so I've been on the lookout for smarter and more sophisticated clothes to add to my wardrobe. This dress caught my eye instantly when browsing Topshop's website, and so when my sister asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I immediately said this! I love the style of this dress as it is so flattering, going in at the waist and slightly out at the hips. Cord is everywhere at the moment and fronting the 70s revival for AW15, and I'm fully on board! Not only is it a fun new texture to mix up outfits with, but it's also a warm material so will be great to carry through into the winter season and layer up with jumpers.
I teamed this dress with a smart scarf, which is one of the items that I got in my Style By Portobello subscription box alongside a pretty necklace. Adding a silk scarf to any outfit instantly makes it more professional looking whilst still maintaining a fashionable twist. The Style By Portobello box is the UK’s first subscription box to deliver vintage items to your door. Each month, the subscriber receives up to 3 hand-curated items sourced from the famous Portobello Market in Notting Hill. The box is worth £35 and makes a lovely little surprise to get every month. When I received mine it felt like my birthday all over again!
Finally, I completed the outfit with these gorgeous black leather boots from Topshop. The gold detail on the heel makes them really unique, and I'm totally in love with them!
