KAREN MILLEN FOREVER PENCIL DRESS

Good morning everyone, today’s ensemble is based around this beautiful Forever Pencil Dress from Karen Millen. I have had my eye on this dress for a long time now. At first I was like do I really need another black midi dress! Every so often whilst browsing on the Karen Millen website I would always look at the dress and Ummm and ahhh about whether or not I should purchase it. So I thought if I am taking this long to make up my mind it probably isn’t something I really love. Then two weeks later I changed my mind and wanted the dress, only to find they didn’t have my size in stock! So I said oh well it wasn’t meant to be.

FOREVER PENCIL DRESS

Now a week or so ago it came back into stock and this time around I wasn’t going to miss out and straight away ordered it. There was no hesitation and I am so glad that I purchased, I can safely say there is no buyers remorse. I waited patiently for the dress to arrive, and as soon as I received the package I could not wait to open it and try on the dress. Can I just say I was extremely pleased with how it looked and of course with the fit and style. It was just how I imagined it would be, the best feeling. I know it’s only a dress but I hate seeing a piece of garment and imagining that it will fit me one way and then it arrives and it just doesn’t feel right. You get what I mean right?

This is the perfect dress to see you from desk-to-dinner in style. Make an entrance in the boardroom with the Forever Pencil Dress. An elegant, sophisticated, strong and powerful dress with a stand collar and mid length sleeves. This works rather well with the belted waist to create a flattering silhouette. There is a zip fastening at the back and the fit of the dress is extremely comfortable. Just add your favourite courts and you are set for your day ahead.

SOCK BOOTS

Now when it came to styling my Karen Millen Forever Pencil Dress. I opted for a day time look so with that in mind I chose to wear my black sock boots from Public Desire. These are the black version to my leopard print pair which you would have seen me wear in my previous posts. If you haven’t then HERE is the link to one of my posts. These come in a super pointed toe with a stretch fit and stiletto heels. They look very similar to the Balenciaga Knife boots.

BAG

Moving on to my bag and to this cute little Pippa mini in the colour shark from Modalu England. The bag is made from shiny croc embossed leather and has triple compartments with a zip top enclosure. You can also wear the bag crossbody too! The Modalu Pippa collection is named after Pippa Middleton and is an iconic addition to any wardrobe. The bag has been been crafted from the highest quality of leather. It is available in the classic, mini grab and crossbody styles. A staple for every occasion and comes in a range of hues and textures. I love how it breaks up the all black ensemble.

SUNGLASSES

As it was a glorious sunny day for a change, now you know by now that I don’t need it to be sunny for me to wear my Sunglasses. Anyway the sun made it all the more worthy, so I grabbed my Le Specs sunglasses in the Rapture style. These oversized cat-eye sunglasses are one of my favourites. The proof is in all my previous posts as you would have seen me wearing them on repeat. If you prefer the skinny cat-eye styles then take a look here as Le Specs does a variety of different colours in them. The most sought after The Last Lolita being very popular amongst Influencers and celebrities alike. I’m after a white pair in this style!

ACCESSORIES

My lipstick… I am sure you would have guessed it. If not, it’s the shade Teddy Bear from Lime Crime. A beautiful nude matt lipstick which works so well with my skin tone. So in love with this shade of nude I really can’t get enough of it.

Finally my jewellery, the cylinder ring and stud earring are from AUrate New York. AUrate fine jewellery – no concessions, is of high quality. Also ethically sourced (no conflict materials), highly sustainable and is made in New York. The jewellery is fairly priced since they sell directly to their consumers and not through third parties. I for one love my cylinder ring and studs and have been wearing them on repeat since I received them. A unique gold ring that ties in beautifully with my watch.

My watch is from Gucci and I have had it for a number of years now. I absolutely adore this watch, its part of my daily outfit. I have had other watches and always end up going back to wearing my Gucci one. It’s very small in size, therefore being one reason why I wear it all the time. Another reason is because its my first designer watch and one that works with almost all of my outfits. Now what other reason would I need to wear such a fabulous watch. So there you have it all ready for my day date with hubby!

    I do own some pencil dress, but none that is as pretty as this one. So glad you went along and bought this dress when it came back in stock, because it looks great on you. The way you styled it with high heeled boots is so effortlessly chic. I love how you opted for such elegant accessories. Beautiful bag and that Gucci watch is amazing. You look like a million dollars. Perfect styling from head to toe.
    I do love pencil dresses. They are super appropriate for work and many other occasions, they are easy to style and they let us feel feminine and pretty. It’s a win win situation.
