When something speaks to you, you know it, and thats exactly what happened with the Karen Millen, blue snake print dress.
I was walking around Covent Garden, waiting for a friend who was meant to be meeting me for lunch at the Ivy Market Grill — one of my favourite Ivy’s! Anyways, I wondered into KM and was thrusted into this snake beauty. It contains everything I’m about for the Summer. Slightly boho, snakey, mid-lenght, its an easy piece that I’ll be able to throw on and not think about, it’s also the perfect print to clash accessories with. It comes true to size, however I went up one size as I wanted it a little longer and more exaggerated on the sleeves. I cant wait to wear it in the Summer with my No 21 slides or those feather beauties I’ve been after.
Snake and snake??? Yes it works, specially when they are different in colour or sized prints. This whole feel kind of reminds me of Chloe, very boho and airy, but the harshness of the yellow snake bag gives it an interesting edge. This dress would also be incredible with a tall snake skin boot! Remember its all about dresses and boots this ss17.
Another amazing find from Designer Exchange, remember the Céline bag I bought last year? I’ve used it so many times! Its the perfect travel bag, and combined with the discounted price it was a no brainer, so when looking for a new stand out bag for LFW this season, I headed straight there. There hasn’t been a huge Stella McCartney fashion lust for a couple of years now, but that doesn’t mean they’re over. Sometimes its a lot more respected to buy an item purely because of the love you have orf it, and not the blogger points your’ll get from other people. So looking to sell, exchange or by a preloved designer bag? THIS is the website, alternately if you are in London, I frequently pop into their Knightsbridge store to have a look and actually hold the beauties they have in there. Also THIS one is next on my list!
DRESSES IN WINTER
So the day after I bought the dress, of course I wanted to wear it, but that was the time Doris I think was about, and she was angry. So to save any embarrassment, I wore my new 501 Straight Cut Levis underneath. I was recently placed in a magazine for my skirt/jeans combo so thought it was about time I revisited the style. It screams confidence, as in if you’re going to do it you have to have some. People look. But if we think about it, there’s nothing outlandish about this style, its still pretty chic, in that more cluttered, eclectic manner, and one I’m zoning into. Just remember that the dress more often needs to be a slightly longer lenght, for sure below the knee. Also dresses with a split are an extra bonus when teaming with jeans! Also talking about the Levis, they are amazing! My new favourite pair. They do come up a little big, I normally take a UK8, and ended up with a UK4 — strange but true.
