This outfit is pretty much a mixture of old favourites. You’ve heard me raving about this River Island skirt too many times already, I wear this Topshop belt constantly & I’ve had this AllSaints shirt dress for years now. When I brought the dress I remember wondering if I’d actually get much wear out of it, but now I don’t know what I’d do without it! Isn’t it funny how a total impulse buy can become one of those things you go back to year after year. It’s a little on the short side, so its strictly leggings or thick tights only as a dress, but I think it works just as well tucked in as a top. It always reminds me how much I love this gauzy cotton lawn as a fabric too.

These Finsk wedges are slowly starting to give my Rick Owens ones a run for their money in terms of comfort. The leather is very thick & stiff on these, which I love for the architectural quality it gives them, but it meant they rubbed a little in the beginning. They’re feeling more comfortable each time I wear them though & the height makes them such perfect everyday shoes.

How perfect is my new ASOS bangle too? A super skinny gold band with a little spike at either end, it’s exactly the type of understated accessory I’ve been after for a while. Plus, it’s solid brass too, so it’ll stay nice & gold with no flaking, peeling or discolouration. I don’t know why other stores don’t make use of brass for their jewellery too. It’s such a good, cheap, alternative to gold & is so much better than the plated base metals you can buy for similar prices that only last a few wears.

    I love your belt! I have a similar Topshop one which I’m scared will break soon, I wear it all the time. These shoes are super cute too, such a nice shape. You’re such an All Saints girl, it’s such a cool brand and I miss shopping there…I just can’t afford it these days ha ha. <3 xo

      Haha! Me either at the moment, there are always lots of pieces on eBay though! ;)

    I love your curly hair Steph, what do you use to curl it? The curls are just the right size, and not too ringlet-y either! Your spike bangle is such a subtle but pretty addition to your outfit :) I agree, more stores should use brass, I’d rather pay a little more and have my jewellery last longer than have it flake and ruin quickly! xxx

      Aww, thankyou! I keep getting asked this a lot actually, maybe I should do a hair post? I just rough dry it with a diffuser + salt spray & then curl random sections with my curling wand to make it look a bit more ‘polished’!

    Steph, you are wearing another great all-black ensemble and the ASOS bracelet is indeed very you as well! Every time I see you wearing these Finsk shoes I cannot stop admiring their sculptural design…are they really comfortable? Maybe it’s because I rarely wear heels, despite my resolutions…Take care, Caterina

      They are extremely comfortable! :) I have shortened calf muscles, so I have to wear heels as flats cause me much more pain, but these & my Rick wedges are easily the most comfortable pairs I have. I think it’s the wedge & the little platform, I could run around all day in them!

    oh you flawless being! your eyes and porcelain skin are just stunning <3 that skirt is gorgeous, and I have a similar bracelet! love its simplicity. ASOS has so many amazing bargain jewellery finds! :)

      Aw, Izzy! You’re too kind! :) I agree, I’m really feeling simple pieces recently & yeah, ASOS have so many great bargain pieces, I have a whole wishlist full of them!

    Love the asymmetric shape and cut of the river island skirt. Sexy and yet cool. You have taken over the reigns of all black coolness. I have been mixing and matching with white lots lately. I am glad you continue strong x

      Haha! Thanks Melissa! :D You are still the queen of black & white though – you always make me want to buy some white pieces because you make it look so good!

    One thing I love about your outfit posts is that no matter how much black you wear, you always manage to make it look different. ADORE Your skirt by the way! xx

    yes! It’s the absolute best when a random impulse buy turns into a closet favorite. An all black outfit is always perfect, love the skirt :)

    NOMG I have been eyeing that bangle since it popped up on my side bar during my last browsing session. DYING over it now I’ve seen it on you! I have that same skirt so I totally get you, it’s been my go to the past few months though now it’s colder here (yay!) I cast her aside, then I see you pairing it with tights and it’s like an ‘ah-a’ moment, a very blonde one since obviously why don’t I pair it with tights LOL!

    Hope you have a great week

      Heheh! :) I pretty much wear tights with everything, even when it’s warm out cos my legs are so pasty! And yes, definitely get the bangle, I’ve pretty much worn it constantly since I got it!

    i’m with you on the brass. nothing annoys me more than buying (cheaper) jewellery only to have it fade, tarnish, discolour etc with a few wears. another rocking all-black outfit steph, think you’ve nailed that niche entirely. i’m in love with those wedges, wish they were everyday height for me but unfortunately my everday height is at least 2″ less.. hehe

    • Posted 24.05.2013 at 2:29 pm | Permalink

      Agree, I get too attached to jewellery too, so there’s nothing worse than when you love a piece & it’s become so tarnished that you can’t wear it anymore! Hehe, I think the platform makes them feel a few inches shorter than they actually are though! :)

    mMmMmM so that skirt is Riover Island uh? I might need to take a look next time I’m close to one of their shops…

    never tire of those shoes steph.. ;) i wonder if my calf muscles are no longer as short as they used to be – definitely more comfortable in flats these days but i really wish i could wear heels all the time! you should definitely do a hair post!
