This black dress, feather bag and these snakey boots have fast become favourites for me. I’m in love with them all and think they work really well styled together. I feel like it’s a super sixties looking outfit which just makes me love it even more. I had bought this mini dress from Zara before Christmas so I had a new dress to wear. As soon as I saw it hanging so beautifully right at the entrance of the store I knew it would be the dress I’d end up leaving with. I actually wore it both on Christmas Eve and again on New Year’s Eve as it’s become my new favourite dress. It’s exactly my kind of silhouette with its mini length, long sleeves and a high ruffled neckline. Its high waist makes it a flattering fit, and because it’s black I know it’s going to be a classic in my wardrobe that I can style with anything. In addition to the ruffled neckline it also has pretty ruffles down the front bib of the dress which help keep it from being too basic or plain. I tried desperately to capture the ruffles with my camera, but I was using a tripod and no matter what I did and I just couldn’t get them to photograph well enough. Typically, it went on sale a week after I bought it. It was totally worth the full price of £39.99 though, and I know it’s going to get a lot of wear in 2016.

Wearing a simple little black dress means I can go bold with my accessories. These insanely amazing boots are my new babies. I love a good snakeskin style boot and there have been lots around recently that I’ve wanted. These snazzy ones are from Asos and are also in the sale at just £42. They’re so perfect I can’t even handle it. As soon as they were delivered I immediately put them on, fell in love, and refused to take them off for the rest of the day, even though most of that time was spent in bed because I wasn’t well. I was quite disheartened to realise I’m currently missing a pair of knee high boots in my collection, so it was all the more reason to get these and rectify the situation. They do all the talking for any outfit and the contrasting dark wooden heel only adds to their appeal. I have to admit they’re not as comfortable as most of the other boots I’ve had from Asos, but they are just too damn gorgeous for me to care.

This soft pink marabou feather shoulder bag is literally the bag of my dreams. Topshop had it in 3 colours: black, deep red and this mauvey pink one. I have a real love for marabou, and have been after a marabou feathered bag for a while now. I wanted all 3 colours in Topshop and had a hard time deciding. I was stood in the store like a muppet for ages trying to choose one. I normally opt for black seen as though it goes with anything, but pink is my favourite colour and this beauty was just calling out to me. It’s perfect. What’s more, pink is one of the key colours for Spring Summer 16 which I couldn’t be happier about. Accessories are a great way to start incorporating the new season’s trends into your wardrobe whilst it’s still too cold for spring clothing. With this bag, I think I’m off to a good start.
