After having just spent a small fortune on a sale haul from ASOS I really shouldn’t have spent any more, but when I saw this maxi dress I couldn’t help but make another order. You know when you see something & it is just so you, it could have been made for you? This was one of those pieces, I couldn’t say no to it. The asymmetric midi/maxi hem, the contrasting jersey/crepe panels that give it a little stiffness & that beautiful flared shape & the top half is a t-shirt too, total perfection.

My cropped leather jacket from my degree collection (are you sick of seeing this yet?!) was the perfect compliment to the long lengths, I love playing with proportions, especially when wearing maxi lengths. Everytime I wear this I remind myself I need buy some more leather & make a better (less rushed) version, but never get around to it. I’m hoping to get my machine fixed in the next few weeks though, as I plan on making some summery dresses & shirts, so hopefully I might get around to it then.

Also, on a side note, I overheard some chavvy kids call me ‘the angel of death’ whilst wearing this, I think because it billows out so much when I walk, and of course all of the black… I’m sure they meant it as an insult, but I definitely spent the rest of the day swooshing around with this in my mind!

      Thankyou! :) I know what you mean, I have so many leather jackets for that exact reason! ;)

    That jacket is incredible! And you made it wow! I love cropped leather jackets, think they look great with maxi dresses/skirts.

    Haha at Angel of Death :D x

    I adore this look! I love the high neck on the leather jacket paired with the maxi – I wouldn’t think they would look so great paired together but you have shown me it does! PS amazing jacket – you go girl! xoxo

    The number of times I have done that! The free shipping helps too.. it’s like oh.. why didn’t I buy that too? Anyway, you look great, and oh my gosh I always love seeing your creations so keep wearing them :)

      Haha! Yes, exactly, the free shipping is my downfall! Thankyou, I hope there will be lots more pieces to show off soon once my machine is fixed! :)

    The seams, neck and zipper detailing on that jacket make it such a great piece!! I also agree, the maxi was made for you ;)

    I would definitely take that Angel of Death comment as a compliment!

    Love the way the convex hem of the jacket works with maxi dress. So lovely.

    PS. Hair tutorial, please? Your curls are giving me hair-envy.

      I definitely did! I think they were kind of annoyed it didn’t offend me! Hah! ;)
      Thankyou, I keep getting asked that recently, but I think it’s mostly down to my hairdressers skill as I honestly don’t do a whole lot with it myself! Maybe I will do a post with the products/tools I use though :)

    you know what you’re doing, love it.

    This maxi dress is a great purchase and it is so you! I perfectly understand what you said about shopping: sometimes when you see the right piece, you don’t want to miss the chance to get it and it happened to me this w-e with a beautiful structured shirt by COS…I should stay away from shops and laptops! Take care, Caterina

    • Posted 20.03.2013 at 5:22 pm | Permalink

      Hehe! I know what you mean, spending so much time online is very bad for my bank balance! Look forward to seeing the shirt on you, I’m such a fan of COS too! :)

    i love the proportions of this look, i can totally see what you were thinking with this – the cropped fitted leather jacket is just perfect with the billowy maxi! definitely ‘angel of death’ in the coolest way :) x

  15. Posted 18.03.2013 at 4:35 pm | Permalink

    Great proportions, love this..
    Nice find, that dress!

  16. Posted 18.03.2013 at 9:13 pm | Permalink

    LOL! They really call you Angel of Death? I would’ve love to see the billowing effect as you strut down the street. I think your outfit looks dramatic and absolutely stunning.

    • Posted 20.03.2013 at 5:25 pm | Permalink

      Thanks Marlene! :) Yeah, I’m used to it now though, most people around here dress like WAGS or extras from TOWIE, so I guess I kinda stick out! ;)

    from head to toe, i love the entire outfit. you look so beautiful love! xO!

    No I am not sick at looking at this beautiful jacket and I love the maxi asymmetric dress ( I also just purchased something similar). I like that you wore the cropped jacked closed it adds a high sense of fashion to the casual dress. Lovely look Stephanie x

    jesus christ you’re talented. leather is my final frontier which makes me wish i used it under the comfort of an instructor’s help during school (the things you learn to ask AFTER finishing school). ps finally realized i can click on your brandname and see all the things you made, amazing…

    • Posted 22.03.2013 at 1:13 pm | Permalink

      Aw, *blushes*! Yeah, I know what you mean though, so many things I wish I could just go ask my sewing teacher still! If you need any help/advice with leather though, feel free to drop me an email & I can help as best I can, picked up quite a few handy tricks along the way :)

  21. Posted 20.03.2013 at 9:41 pm | Permalink

    I bet this dress looks amazing in action! I can imagine you walking about just like, well…an angel of death! A cool and nice one though xxx

    that maxi is so gorgeous and looks like such a versatile piece. also really like the style of that great jacket!

    • Posted 24.03.2013 at 11:25 pm | Permalink

      Yes, it’s so versatile, I really wish I’d brought a backup as I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it!

  23. Posted 23.03.2013 at 7:15 pm | Permalink

    That maxi dress is so cool! I love the asymmetrical nature of it. And I adore your hair! xo
