We finally had a little sunshine over the past few days & after the miserable last few weeks we decided we ought to make the most of it & went down to the local park. At the very top of the park is a huge old house, which was a school for sometime & now is just abandoned, crumbling & apparently haunted! It has the most lovely overgrown walled garden though, complete with secret passageways & doors, it’s like something straight out of a fairytale.

I thought it would make the perfect spot to show off this shirt dress sent to me by Glamorous! I have a bit of a thing for black shirt dresses & I love the cut out detailing & semi sheer fabric of this one, the gathered bottom gives it a nice girly edge too, which makes it stand out from my other more masculine versions, I couldn’t resist it. I think they have become my thing, much like my black tailored jackets & black boots, that to anyone else they all look exactly the same & I find myself having to justify how they’re actually all unique & different! Though, I will admit, the ‘differences’ between some of my boots are so tiny, I’m not even sure how I managed to convince myself they were different enough to my other pairs to be worth buying! I think we all have at least one fashion vice like this though, I’m not alone right?!

      Wooo! So glad you’re getting a little sun too! I hope it’s still nice in a few weeks when I go to Florida, heard they’ve had some serious storms too!

    I love love these photos! Love the contrast of the background and your gothic look and those boots are amazing they look like a pair of £800 Ann Demeulemeester boots I wanted last winter! x

      They are one of my favourite pairs & I actually got them in the sale for a steal, they were originally mustard yellow though, of course I had to dye them! ;)

    Girl, you always make black look so good! I feel like when wearing outfits that are predominantly black, it can easily go into tacky or too “emo” territory, but you always pull it off classily. Kudos. :)
    I really like the cut out of that dress – it’s flirty, showing people a little skin, but at the same time, not slutty. Great dress. And that little house sounds so picturesque!

    Can’t say it enough but I adore your blog and your style! This is such a glam outfit, those boots are making me drool on my keyboard!!! BTW Congrats on your work in the magazine you are so stupidly talented!!!! I wish I had a unicorn like the ones you draw xxxxx

    oh those falke tights are divine! love the graphic lines, it works so well with the cutouts on the dress! you look great in all-black! i totally understand about your boots, a lot of my shoes tend to look the same and i’ve actually bought 2 pairs of the same shoe because i love them so much that i wanted another pair for when the first one wears out! not sure how i justified that, since i don’t wear them quite enough to begin with, haha.. but we women can justify anything… :) i love the strap across the toes on these boots, really interesting detail!

    Your photos are simply stunning. I love how the light shines on your face in the very first photo. I know I should be staring at the dress but you’re so photogenic. I’ve just scrolled through your previous posts and thoroughly enjoyed them.

    I know how it is to have grey skies and rain when it is supposed to be “Summer” I live for the sun.
    Love your boots and the back details. I got a few tights that have geometric shapes to them, waiting for an occasion to wear it xx

    You are absolutely right that cut out pieces, drapes and other cuts can make even the simplest of the dress looks special and different.The setting of this picture is magical and the green gives such a nice ocntrast with your outfit!

  27. Posted 21.07.2012 at 6:58 pm | Permalink

    No honey, you’re not alone for sure! :)
    I love your dress!The cut-out details are perfect and you look just stunning in it! :)
    big kiss!
