OOTD: Colour splash

When Ben and I first started dating, I wore a lot of black. I look back on those photos and wonder where I was hiding all my colour. I do love the chic look of an all black outfit, but I always feel more confident when I dress it up with a bit of colour. Even better is a great classic LBD with a colour splash like this!


Dress: c/o IGIGI
Belt: ASOS Curve
Bag: Crossroads
Wedges: Betts
Sunnies: Domino Dollhouse
Necklace: Lovisa

I love the way this dress hugs my curves. The cut of it is such a classic shape and it creates a fantastic nipped in waist look, even if there isn't much actual waist there to nip-in! I've always found that IGIGI dresses lend an instant feminine glam to whatever I'm wearing, there's something about this sillehoutte that makes me feel like a woman to be reckoned with!

These wedges are some of the comfiest shoes I own. I really wish I snapped them up in different colours, they are such an awesome statement shoe and I always get compliments on them when I wear them. I added my (super $6!) heart bag which is perfect for a long day out, I can almost fit the kitchen sink in this bad boy!  

I figured that with a killer dress and red essential pieces, the logical next step was gold accessories. I'm a major fan of belts as jewellery, yes, it's not holding anything up but man does it look pretty sitting there on my waist! If I can add a belt without looking silly, I normally do. And of course, the finishing touch is a funky necklaces. And pineapples are about as awesome as it gets! Except for unicorns. But I was fresh out of unicorns that day. 

Do you prefer colour or all black outfits?? 


  1. I love this outfit so much and that bag is awesome! xx

  2. You look fabulous! That dress is so wonderful and the baggie is adorable ^^ <3


  3. All color, all the time! I have very few black pieces myself because I just feel more confident in color too. I just love this dress on you. Agreed, this shape is super feminine and is one of my favorites.


  4. Everything about this outfit is joyous! Love the shoes, necklace, bag and everrrrrrthang else. xx

  5. You look AMAZING! I love the entire look. The dress, the shoes, and the bag are all gorgeous! xx

  6. Love the shoes and the bag. Not to mention (or is that what I'm just doing :P) this dress is gorgeous on you. I wear a lot of black and have been trying to slowly add more colors into my wardrobe, black is still one of my favorites but I do enjoy color as well.


  7. OH MY GOSH, that dress is amazing!! I love the colours and pattern!

  8. Love the dress! I have a very similar pair of shoes that are amazing. Same deal, wish they would of came out in more colors because I would've snatched 'em up.
