LBD

DRESS - MONKI // JACKET - BEYOND RETRO // JEFFREY CAMPBELL'S - SOLE // NECKLACE - TOPSHOP // WATCH - CASIO (via AMAZON)
Post number 2 feat. the Litas! This time I've teamed them with an LBD that I bought in Monki on Carnaby Street - anybody who hasn't shopped in there before seriously has to. The interior decoration is so nice; even if you don't want to buy anything, it's worth popping in simply to soak up the atmosphere! Monki is fast becoming one of my favourite shops as everything is just so reasonable; it's the perfect place to go if you're looking to buy some more minimal basics that are still high quality despite the great price. The dress is taking the term LBD quite literally (it's very short, and this is a medium!) but I love it nonetheless - it's such a timeless and versatile piece, and is my first venture into the wonderful world of shift dresses!
The blazer was also a recent purchase, this time from vintage goldmine Beyond Retro. I don't buy a lot of vintage clothing, but when I'm in the right mood I just find vintage shops so much more fun than normal ones! There's something about rummaging through a load of old crap and finding a piece that you really love, that makes the whole experience all the more satisfying!

Also, I've popped a few things on Ebay and they all end in approximately one hour, so click here and get bidding quick if you fancy a bargain!
