A couple of weeks ago Zalando got in touch to ask if I’d like to take part in their ‘Fashion Meets Music’ challenge with a couple of other bloggers to celebrate festival season. You all know I am kind of music obsessed, so of course I said yes. Unfortunately I was beaten to the ‘Rock’ category by Camilla, the only one that I could realistically pull off & would usually wear. As much fun as it would have been to play dress up as a pop princess, or gone for a more hippy folk vibe, you know as well as I do that I would never have worn those items again afterwards. We ended up going with ‘Goth Rock’ instead, so that I could choose items I would normally wear. Not my favourite genre, but I think it sums up this outfit quite well.

As soon as I saw this dress I knew it was the one, I fell in love with the draped, asymmetric slice of fabric hanging from the shoulder. Underneath that it’s just a nice quality, plain shift dress, but that swathe of fabric turns it into something much more special. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of it, perfect for those occasions when you want to make a bit of effort but still look quite casual.

I’ve been meaning to get a nice pair of flat boots for a while now, so this seemed like the perfect excuse to add a pair to my collection. These are made from a nice, thick leather, giving them a good weight. I don’t know about you, but for me boots like this need to be kinda heavy & stompy! They’re really roomy too, a godsend for someone with huge, wide feet like mine. I’ve been wearing them as much as possible to try & beat them up a bit, I always think boots look best when they’re totally battered. It feels weird wearing them when they’re so pristine!

The other girls taking part in the challenge are – Lucy (Pop), Laura (Hip Hop) & Camilla (Rock).

    It might not be your genre of music but you pull off the “goth rock” look so well. That dress is awesome. I love the interesting asymmetrical cut on the dress. I also must admit that I love Lucy’s pop look as well. I have such a weird taste in clothing I go from girly to boho to rock…I guess goes the same for my taste in music haha

    You styled goth rock perfectly, especially with those boots. Love the draping on the dress :) xx

    Maybe not your favorite genre but this outfit is not your typical “goth rock” ensemble. Beautiful!
    I agree about flat ankle boots. I have a similar pair by Fiorentini & Baker, worn to death and back, and they still look great.

      The more I wear these boots the more I’m wondering why I didn’t get a pair sooner! I’m on the lookout for a similar but more fitted pair now too, that have a bit more of a smarter look.

    You look amazing Steph (Brown! it’s a small world, but there are many of us!), I think you could pull anything off but this look suits you so much – the dress is something I’d imagine you wearing on a normal day, not just for the Zalando challenge. I think you’ve made both items look very you by incorporating them into your own style – the belt, the bag and your make-up all add to the look. I have to admit I don’t like any of our regional foods either!! xx

      Haha! Yes there are, we’re everywhere! ;) Definitely, it’s slightly too warm to wear it now (as it’s lined) but come autumn/winter I know it’s going to get a lot of wear! Glad it’s not just me, I feel like a fail as a Leicester person when people are like ‘you don’t like curry?!’ Hahaa!

    The dress it’s so you! I love the drape detail on one side. You wearing hippy stuff? That would be surreal! You look great as a chic Goth! xx

    Those boots are perfect! I agree, they MUST be stompy. Beautiful dress too, I love the draping detail! xxx

    What a stunning dress, you definitely nailed the ‘ Goth Rock’ look and completely made it your own!

    The dress is cool but I love the boots! Could do with a pair of those.

    Love this ensemble, I think it encapsulates “goth rock” perfectly!

    goth or goth rock- you win this challenge fair and square!

    You totally nailed this look, even if it isn’t your favourite genre! Love this dress too, that hanging piece of fabric is too cool for school. I think I would’ve wanted to be a pop princess ha ha. <3

    At least they found another music genre to fit in with your style! Would have been a fun to see you try to work with a Pop or Boheme theme but we know that just ain’t you. I love the draping of this dress, really cool and very different, also paired with some tough moto boots is just fabulous.

    Have a great weekend,

      I have to admit, I was tempted – it would have been a fun challenge to style something totally different to my usual style, but I knew I wouldn’t wear the clothes again & I hate the thought of things sitting in my wardrobe going to waste!
