Incase you hadn’t already noticed from the layout, black & nude is one of my favourite colour combinations. Nude is usually the closest I get to wearing a colour that could be considered ‘girly’, though I think it has an edgyness to it also, especially when paired with black. I love wearing a nude tank top or dress that is almost too close of a match to your skin tone, add black accessories & I think it looks so striking & beautiful, plus it’s always fun to watch people in the distance gawk at you thinking you have nothing on!

I haven’t been able to stop staring at this Bracher Emden clutch since I received it last week, I think I’m in love. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I’m not much of a bag person, it’s usually shoes that make my heart go weak, but this is a different story. I think in part it’s is due to the strong Sci-Fi feel about it, I’m a huge nerd & love anything science fiction related, but mostly I’m a massive fan of HR Giger’s work & that was my first thought when I saw this clutch. It doesn’t help that I’ve recently watched Prometheus & the Alien quadrology (no, not including those awful Alien Vs. Predator movies!) a fair few times in the last month either! But then adding to that the beautiful construction & the fact it’s part of a collaboration with Jean-Pierre Braganza, one of my current favourite British designers (& I would guess also a huge Sci-Fi nerd!) & I was smitten!

And yes, I’m wearing my Moxham again! I couldn’t resist though, it is such a perfect match for this pleated maxi from Jovonnista, toughening it up & giving it that little bit of edginess that I always like to have when wearing anything overly feminine. I have way too many maxi dresses / skirts already, but I couldn’t say no to this one, the pleats, uneven hem & the ideal my-arm-almost-blends-into-it nude… Perfect!

    love the nude shade however i think i might be a tad too tan to pull it off. it looks amazing on you however, just a little jealous :) as for the clutch i kind of zoned in on it right away.. i love it! before reading your post i had the design pegged down as greek mythology influenced as it looked like wings to me, maybe because i’m just obsessed with wings in general. it’s super rad and i love that your ring has similar lines!

      Aw, thank you! I guess there are certain perks to being so pale! :) Yeah, it does look a little like wings too! There’s a white version also, which I think would look even more so like wings, maybe it’s because it’s black, I see it as being something darker & more Sci-Fi. I love when things like this can be interpreted in so many ways, I think it’s the mark of a truly great design when everyone can see their own individual influences in it! :)

    You are looking elegant. The contrast of the soft pastel skirt and the Rock star chic necklace -is a unique idea and I love it.

    have a nice day !

    Thank you for the comment on my tattoo post, so nice to have a genuine reply on here! What tattoo are you thinking of getting next and which artist is it? I’m sure you’re so excited. Just came across your blog and I’ve absolutely fallen in love – your style is gorgeous, loving the bag in the post particularly.

    Isn’t Jovonnista just fabulous?!
    I purchased and featured a pair of their pleated trousers just a few weeks ago (http://chicachia.blogspot.com.au) – and I love how all their pieces are feminine yet edgy

    The skirt looks incredible on you, darl! :) Following!

      Totally agree! I can never do anything too girly, but they have the right mix & a little edginess, like you mentioned, so perfect for me! I shall go have a look at your trousers, I considered those myself, but wasn’t sure if I could pull them off! :)

    So nice to discover that we have another thing in common beside the love for fashion: science fiction! OK, my passion is limited to TV series as I grew up with Star Trek and more recently I loved Battlestar Galactica. Nude & black works so well for you and I loved the maxi-skirt (last week I was very close to buy a similar model). Wish you a great week-end!

    What an awesome bag! The outfit is beautiful you look amazing in a maxi skirt!

    I think what I love most about this outfit is that it’s dark and edgy without being to costume like. It’s hard to pull that off <3
