I've seen this gorgeous blue and white, vintage glass window print from Motel Rocks on bloggers everywhere, and I couldn't wait to try on the dress version their lovely staff sent me! There's something about the shapes and design of the print that creates a grungy, romantic-gothic feel, setting it apart from your average sexy bodycon dress. Although it's a tight-fitting dress, the material is perfectly thick enough to not cling to every bulge and bump and let the world know what a big feast you just had (we always seem to take photos right after eating! And everytime I eat out I have to eat large lol).
I preferred wearing this dress with the jacket over it, as to not attract so many stares especially considering how short this is on me (I chose size XS/8 and I think S would've been better). The zip jacket from Saba is shared between my mum and I, and being pure leather it is definitely the most expensive item in my wardrobe (not disclosing the price!) Everytime I take it out I'm terrified of accidentally tainting it, but its buttery soft, and luxurious feel makes the jacket totally worth it. As the fit of the jacket is just a tad baggy for my preference, I popped it over my shoulders to divert the overall look from sexy, to edgy and fierce :)
I know I say this so often about our photoshoots, but this one was in such windy conditions that one of my false eyelashes fell off! Luckily the weather gods were gracious enough to time this disaster right after the shoot, so there's no awkward big eye/small eye fiasco going on in these photos.
