The Knit Navy Midi


Dress: Reiss
Shoes: Just Fab

I promised myself I wasn't going to buy anymore clothes, and well - I have. BUT I am not calling them clothes - I am calling them my 'investment pieces'. The weather has been utterly bizarre and cold lately, however I wanted the option of looking fabulous for occasions like date night without absolutely freezing; the solution? A knit navy rib dress - Genius!

This delightful figure hugging rib knit dress ticks so many boxes. It glides over the body like a second skin, has a plunging neckline for a bit of sexiness,  is conservative in the length whilst giving me life with this unexpected front split, and yet this fabric is thick enough to keep me warm and I can wear this as a look by itself without a coat - I love it.

I paired it with a barely there red sandal which admittedly probably wasn't the best choice for the weather, but they are great for adding a little pop of colour against the deep navy and takes the dress from being serious, to party mode.

I actually wore this look for date night which was at an all you can eat Italian restaurant in Victoria London. Wow the food was delicious (garlic steak, lamb, chicken with cheesy pasta), and the great thing about this dress is that it has a lot of stretch in it, so I could literally eat all I wanted and not worry about my stomach bulging over anything or straining the dress fabric lol.

This dress is also very easy to dress up and down

SHARA STYLE TIP: To make this look more casual,  just pair the dress with some studded loafers or a little Chelsea boot and you are good to go.

Over all the fit quality and finish of this dress is terrific, my only advice if you are going to purchase this dress ladies is, go a size down in this dress, I am wearing a size 6 and I usually wear a size Medium in dresses. This dress is very stretchy and you don't want extra fabric creating any unnecessary bulk around your waist.

With all that being said my dears, enjoy your week and don't be afraid to be amazing.

The Little Black Striped Dress


Dress: Reiss
Shoes: Kurt Geiger 
Clutch: Primark

Hello my lovelies!
Between the 'Beast from the East' and this relentless bitter cold, updating on my blog has somewhat been a bit of a challenge, and standing in the freezing temperatures to take aesthetically pleasing pictures while I pretend to look away can be a task when you are freezing. However on Monday the sky graced us with some lovely sun, and although it wasn't warm I decided to take full advantage and wear my gorgeous rib dress from 'Reiss'.

I really do like 'Reiss' as a brand, and although their prices can be pretty steep for a bargain hunter like myself, when you need a sophisticated classic piece for your wardrobe that will be there as a staple for 2 years - 'Reiss' is the place to go. The quality, fit and finish is on point, and if you want a warm body con dress to wear then this store definitely has some. My Advice, spend the money and invest in a good quality piece you know you will wear a lot and you will save more money in the long  run.

I love that this rib is thick so that I won't freeze if I choose to wear it with some thing light like a biker jacket or an over coat. The dress also has beautiful scalloped edging on the armholes which adds to those subtle design details that I expect to see from a brand like 'Reiss'

This dress is a what I call a 'multi-purpose' staple, wear it with some court shoes during the day to work to show you mean business, and then at night pair it with a clutch and some sling backs like I have here and you're ready to party and drop it like it's hot.

 These black, white and navy stripes that the rib is made from is great because they contour to your body and create these fantastic illusion lines on your body.

And there you have it ladies, a quick and simple dress that can transition from day to night - Have a good week and don't be afraid to be amazing! :) xx
