Sorry if this is a little repetitive, but I just had to take some better photos of this dress I wore for the ‘Libertine’ launch party in my last post, and get some shots of the beautiful metallic faux-fur up close too.
It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of interesting textures, I think when you dress primarily in black it becomes much more important, as layering different kinds really helps to keep a monochrome outfit interesting in place of colours. So as you can imagine when I spied this on ASOS it went straight into my bag. I love the mixture of the leather back & sleeves with the fur front & that subtle bronze shimmer, the shift shape is really flattering too & gives it a slightly futuristic vibe. It’s so soft & fluffy, I think I ended up secretively stroking it most of the night!
I know I’m in danger of wearing this Bracher Emden belt too much & it losing it’s wow-factor, but I can’t help myself, the added punch it gives to any outfit is pretty addictive. Plus it seemed the perfect compliment to this dress, upping the sci-fi factor a little more. You know as far as I’m concerned the more something makes me feel like I’ve raided the costume chests of some of my favourite sci-fi movies, the more I like it!
