Black and White Pompeii



I am a huge fan of fit and flare dresses. Personally, I think the fit and flare dress is flattering to most body types as it is designed to achieve the ideal hour-glass shape. Thanks to Rosy Ruby for sending over this beautiful dress. I love that the material is lightweight and breathable but not sheer. The dress fits great and hits just above my knees. Since the flirty silhouette of the fit and flare dress can be childish, I like to offset it with a more mature print. Black and white pattern adds a timeless touch to this rather youthful looking dress.

 

What I am wearing:
Dress: Call Me Maybe dress c/o - size UK8
Belt: H&M (buy similar here)
Sunglasses: Selima Sun for J.Crew (similar style by Selima)





Here I am, sporting my new shoes for the first time. All I can say is love. I absolutely adore the classic silhouette of this heel. They are very versatile, super comfortable and will work great for dressy or casual outfits. The heel is also manageable. Again, they are a bit on the narrow side so wider feet may want to size up. It is definitely one of my favorite purchases lately.

I love that dress - such a fun print and cut. It feels youthful yet still classy. The shoes I'm kinda meh on as I think they're a bit severe for this dress, but that's just nitpicking :)

Love those shoes! They look great with that pretty dress too! I actually like the clean sleekness of those nude straps than the studded Valentino's!

What a pretty outfit and the dress is gorgeous on you. Those pumps are definitely a good Valentino dupe and feel they are more appropriate In a professional environment.
