After seeing the Emilie dress from Realisation I have been dying for it but from reading reviews and seeing photos of bloggers and girls shorter than me saying it’s short on them (I’m almost 6ft) I thought for the price, I can’t buy it without trying it on. Thus, I thought I’d make a similar one myself and I went on the hunt for the right fabric, which is a lot more difficult than I first thought! It’s super easy to find this satin Oriental style fabric in a bright colour but rarely could I find it in navy or black. That is until I was scrolling through ASOS and found this dress from Newlook. The straps are adjustable which is always a plus for me because of my height. Sadly the darts and fit of it isn’t perfect across the bust. The waist is great (I wear a size 8) but the boob area is way too big for me (I’m a 32B) I’d definitely have to have D boobs to fill the fabric! But for a whole £25 it really is a bargain in comparison to The Emilie dress.
I’m also wearing my Gold Bullet trainers in black suede which go really well with this outfit. They’re my third pair of Gola’s and I’m super impressed with them! I religiously wear vans old skools so it’s lovely to be able to change up from my standard go to shoes. My favourite thing about this dress and dresses like this is that you can throw on a t-shirt and trainers and have a super casual but thought out outfit but can also throw on boots or heels and jazz it up for an evening. I recently wore this dress with silver boots on a night out and cannot wait to wear it with my red Zara boots soon! With subtle gold and silver jewellery I really love this outfit.
