I recently caught up with a friend and we decided to head to Carnaby Street. We headed to a new American-style restaurant, Stax. The food was great, as was the service and I'd definitely recommend it. We then did a bit of shopping to round everything off. It was such a lovely evening.
I wanted to wear something nice, but also something that would look cool with boots due to the rain. I turned to my ever trusted Lady V London. This dress was actually going to be my Christmas Day dress last year, but I went for a different one in the end. Lady V are great for making dresses that can be dressed up or down, which is why I have so many! I paired the below dress with my standard ankle boots, a fab satchel I bought at a blogger sale, and my new Collectif cardigan.
Dress: Lady Vintage London^
Satchel: Blogger Sale
Leggings: South (via Very)
I love the bird theme of this outfit. The white birds against the red base really soften the look and I love the slight Asian feel of the dress. Swing dresses are also so comfortable and usually have a slight stretch, which is great when heading off to stuff your face! The cardigan is a new purchase from a recent Collectif sample sale. I adore the Swallows on either side and on my way to dinner I had a few people ask me where I got it from - a total winner!
Such a gorgeous outfit, and definitely one of my favourites this year. But then, having an outfit which is completely vintage inspired is likely to get my vote ;)
'til next time!
Love and hugs,
