Good morning everyone, today’s post is based around this one shoulder Octo dress from Solace London. Now whether I am going out or staying in for a date night I like to get dressed up. So with this in mind I have put together an outfit for the evening. I am a huge fan of the brand Solace London if you didn’t already know. I would happily buy as many of their garments as I possibly could if my bank balance would allow it! It’s their unique style that always draws me in every time.
ONE SHOULDER DRESS
So let’s start off with the Octo dress aptly named because of the octopus print on the dress. I am a sucker for one shoulder dresses and this one is one of my all time favourites. The dress comes in a midi length with a dramatic kimono style sleeve which flows in the wind as I walk. The plisse pleats add texture to the dress and I absolutely love how the dress skims my body. The perfect dress for any occasion whether it’s for a night out, for a special occasion or because you just felt like dressing up. I have a few events coming up and I can’t wait to wear the octo dress again!
When it came to styling the Octo dress I opted for some kitten heeled mules from Staud. Now you would have seen me wearing these on repeat. The main reason for that is they are extremely comfortable to walk in, also love the thong style. The thong mules add an elegant finish to an outfit, they are versatile and can be worn with jeans too. I mean what’s not to love about them. They give me that subtle elevation I want along with elongating my legs too. Let’s not forget how easy it is to slip them on and off which makes them that more appealing to me especially after a night out!
As for my bag I opted for the new Ava Vitello Gold mini in the colour blue by Teddy Blake. This micro shape has been crafted in Italy with a smooth Vitello leather. The style features a round top handle and also come with a detachable strap that can be used to wear the bag crossbody. The bag opens to a compact interior with just enough room for my favourite card, a lipstick and my keys. Such a cute little bag which is part of the brands 2020 Arm Candy collection.
Finally for the finishing touches I am wearing my Illesteva cat-eye sunglasses in white, adding a little bit more drama to my ensemble. Completing my look I opted for a pop of colour and decided to wear a red lip in the shade Feels So Grand from the M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour collection.
