dark paradise





Bag: c/o Chaceylove (out of stock)
Monochrome floral dress: c/o Chaceylove (link here)
Cardigan: Cotton On (old)
Cross necklace: Low Luv by Erin Wasson
Peacock ring: House of Harlow
'Cielo' Boots: NastyGal (link here- my new favourite boots!)

This is probably one of my most favourite outfits recently! I've been all over the monochrome trend lately, so I loved this black and white dress from Chaceylove, but with monochrome outfits I'm always pining for a little splash of colour. I sometimes do a little pop of neon but with this outfit, I wanted to put some colour in my lips :) Dark red vampy-esque lips just transform everything, in my opinion! I loved the dark, gothic vibe it suddenly added to my outfit, although it's very subtle. It just shows that with the monochrome trend you can still get creative and make different looks :)

This dress from Chaceylove is just so elegant and pretty :) I usually don't do high necklines especially combined with sleeveless cuts, but having them together just has this really classy look that is reminiscent of those Asian traditional cheongsams or qipaos. Of course the flared skater cut makes them more modern, which is perfect!

This black satchel bag also from Chaceylove helps modernise the look a little more as well, as do my new chunky platform heels from NastyGal :) I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far!

  35. This look is so beautiful, and reminds me vaguely of a Lana Del Rey music video. I also like your summer sweater and the texture that it adds to the outfit.
