With this in mind, imagine my delight when I was sent a fantabulous black dress from Red Label, an online boutique that does some great affordable clothing (especially dresses) - you should definitely check it out! What a dress: the long sleeves and ultra flattering tulip / wrap shape immediately screamed 40's film siren to me, so I thought a great way of styling it would be to add my trusty fake fur coat and cloche hat to add to the overall vintage vibe.
Getting ready for my close up:
This week I'm taking my boyfriend out to a fancy shmancy restaurant for his birthday and, truth be told, I had been wondering what on earth to wear, as I tend to dress down more often than dress up. However, this LBD arrived in the nick of time and has solved that sartorial dilemma. Little Black Dress: you and me are going to paint the town red!
