EDGY GIRL DRESS

Good morning everyone, today’s ensemble is based around this Edgy girl dress. Once in a while I find myself gravitating towards a piece of item that has that fashion forward ability and be statement worthy at the same time. So when April and Alex got in contact with me to do a collaboration with them I jumped at the chance. After browsing through their website I decided I wanted the Edgy Girl Dress.

DRESS

So before I get started here is a little back story to April & Alex. Based in the UK, they curate bold and edgy, fashion-forward pieces which is sourced all over the world and sell to a global fashion-forward clientele. The company was launched in 2012 as a fashion and style blog. Their love for all things fashion led to the creation of an online boutique. The products are handpicked by their in-house fashion buyer. Offering a curated selection of fashion pieces, and limited edition collaborations. Only selling the pieces that they want to wear. If they cannot wear it, they will not sell it. Their motto is “We do not sell clothes, we sell Style”.

Right lets begin with my Edgy Girl dress, which is a two-piece open back dress with detachable sleeves. The sleeves are what makes the dress stand out and make a statement. I love the puffed long sleeves which is what initially drew me to this dress. The simple dress is elevated by the detachable sleeves. Although my dress is sold out April & Alex have a similar top in this style, take  a look HERE.

ESPADRILLES

Moving onto my shoes, I opted to stay with the black and style my Edgy Girl Dress with my black Castaner Chiara Espadrilles from Net-A-PORTER. In my opinion I think they work rather well together and gives off a ballerina vibe. Of course by now you all know how much I adore a pair of espadrilles during the Spring/Summer months. Castaner’s are one of my favourite brands and the first place I turn to for my espadrilles.

SUNGLASSES

Next and onto my sunglasses, this pair is from the Adam Selman X Le Specs collection in the style Scandal. Adore a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, this Scandal pair adds to the edginess of the overall look and compliments the attire.

FINISHING TOUCHES

Finally for the finishing touches I am wearing the shade Red Velvet from Lime Crime Velvetines on my lips. This just gives a pop of colour to the all black ensemble. So to complete my look I decided to wear my hair in a side parting which is pulled back into a low pony tail. So there you have it, one way to style the Edgy Girl Dress!

    It is interesting how this dress looks like it is a two in one where it’s a combination of a dress shirt and a dress itself. I love that you pair your outfits with stylish sunglasses!

    That is such a creative dress, I really like it, and it’s a dress that I would at least try to wear, I’m just not sure I would be able to pull it off, plus I don’t like collars that tight around the neck, but you look so amazing in it Lovely!

    I love to see people wearing unique pieces and this dress is definitely one of those. I don’t have the confidence to wear something this edgy, but I love the style and you’re the perfect model for the style. I might try to layer a crop shirt over a tank dress – that’d pretty much be my limit of edgy 🙂 I’d definitely have no problem wearing those espadrilles and those sunglasses are awesome!

    I love hearing stories like this, where women follow their passion and it leads to success and being independent. This is a stunner of dress and you did a great job styling it.

    You make the street your runaway. I was getting such runaway vibes from this edgy dress, it is so structure and unique. Plus, you wear it like a top model! Such a gorgeous look! I think black is always a great choice for more edgier pieces and cuts. This dress is simply divine and I like how you paired it with black espadrilles and cat eye sunglasses. You look phenomenal!!!!
