Last Sunday we went down to the Southbank Center for the 2013 Vogue Festival, we got there a little early & so decided to kill some time by taking some super touristy outfit shots. It seemed like it would have been a shame to not use the beautiful backdrop of the Southbank whilst we were there, even if we did have to fight for a spot amongst all the other tourists.

I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this dress. I’m not much of a print person, so I never usually like to buy different items with the same print, but I loved both this & the leggings I featured few weeks ago so much that I had to get them both. Well, the H. R. Giger inspired print was just too me to pass up & I think the alien influence is even more apparent on the dress. I love the way the pleats curve in around the waist, it’s super flattering & it’s so 3D looking it’s hard to believe that it’s just a print. I was stopped so many times by people asking for photos of it whilst I was walking around, it’s definitely an attention grabber. You can just see a glimpse of my vintage black diamond earrings here too, I don’t have many pairs, as you rarely see them underneath all of my hair, but these are easily my favourites.

Now the weathers finally getting a bit warmer I’m able to wear my draped leather jacket more often too. Those of you that follow me on Twitter & Instagram will see that I’ve just brought a vintage sewing machine (she’s now called Agyness by the way!), so I’m hoping to re-make a more perfect version of this jacket soon. I’m thinking of maybe doing a suede version too, as I do wear it an awful lot & it would be nice to have a few of them, especially now I have a machine capable of sewing them up!

    That dress is just beyond the beyond! It is gorge and it is hard to take your eyes off of it. And no wonder it is based on a Gieger painting…ah that explains it. And your cropped jacket, did you make this? Lovely blog. Following on Bloglovin!

    Okay, first off, thank you for introducing me to Georgia Hardinge. Her work is incredible. I’ve just been browsing the River Island site and it looks like many of the pieces are already sold out! Gotta be quick with these collaborations I guess…

    The dress looks stunning on you. I’m tempted to get the maxi skirt in the same print!

    • Posted 06.05.2013 at 7:46 pm | Permalink

      No problem! :)
      I have been a fan for a while now, so I had been waiting with baited breath ever since I first heard about the collaboration! I noticed the other day that a few pieces that had sold out were back in stock again, maybe returns? So might be worth checking back. I was very tempted by the skirt too, I think it would look beautiful on you!

    I love the Southbank, one of my favourite places! Used to go all the time when I lived nearer to it. This dress is beautiful, it’s so you! When I saw it in store I went up to touch it because I thought the pleats were real and I was so surprised that it was a print xxx

      When I was browsing the website the other day there were the odd few sizes back in stock of this dress, so might be worth checking back! :)

    THIS DRESS!!! I don’t even know what else to say…it’s just so freaking cool. I totally agree, it looks 3D. Def. looks like it has texture. I also love the way it defines your waist, so flattering. The cropped leather jacket is perfect to go with it.

    I wasn’t thinking Aliens or Giger here as much as folded paper, or twisting architecture. Absolutely mindblowing get up. Thoroughly impressed.
