Roses Are Yellow Not Red

As much as I absolutely hate packing, the one benefit of it is that I tend to come across pieces of clothing I haven't worn in a rather long time hiding behind something. Such is the case with this dress which I've had for over a year now and this is like the third time I've worn it I believe. It's by London based brand Beloved and they stock their pieces in major online shops like Asos and Stylist Pick. Beautiful fitting, great feminine silhouette, pleated Jacquard rose print all over it; what's not to love about it I ask? The dress comes with a belt made of the same print and material but I didn't like it as it doesn't cinch in the waist enough so I went with another belt. I like the addition of leather look neckline adds a touch of toughness to a very feminine piece. As the saying goes "Opposites attracts", I went the opposite and paired it with a boyfriend style cardigan and masculine looking chunky loafers.

  31. Dont you just love when you find something you had forgotten about in your closet?! It is like shopping all over again! This dress looks so so pretty on you. I really like the opposite mix of the floral dress with the fierce leather neckline. So cute!
