Lace, Print and Vintage Scarf…Outfit Post

When I saw on instagram a picture of a print dress with lace inserts, I instantly thought “BUY IT NOW”.  An even bigger draw to this dress was that Vogue UK was considering it for their September shoot of top M&S picks.  Yes, M&S is cool now!

I wore this dress on a quick coffee trip to meet my vintage sister Norbyah who gave me a gorgeous vintage scarf as a gift from her US trip.  The weather was still relatively warm so there was no need for any layers or tights.  The lace on the sleeves of the dress gave welcome ventilation (TMI?) and also textural interest to the dress.  Clashes of print and textures is definitely a key A/W 2013 trend and keeping the dress in a simple colour palette makes it an easy dress to wear.  This dress would take you through to colder times, sling on a chunky cardigan or a leather biker jacket and add some black tights and you would be protected from the chilly climes.

For this trip out, I wore it with a pair of heeled Ash biker boots and a simple Cole Haan black bag.  I added some contrast by tying the gifted vintage scarf onto said bag.  As I was having a bad hair day, the hair was slicked back.
