Black & White :: Shein.com Black Dress with White Pleat Sleeve Cuff + Over the Knee Boots ( Featured)Hi everyone !
Trust 2016 has been looking up for you so far - as it has for me. Been working on more collaborations for 2016 and have been kindly receiving some lovely gifts to highlight in my fashion blog posts recently.
Today, I will be introducing you to another online store - Shein.com ( previously known as sheinside.com) of which the kind people there have sent me 2 lovely dresses to showcase to my readers.
Both dresses are in my favourite black hue and I wanted to bring this first look to you and styling it with the latest over-the-knee boots trend, which certainly had me stopping by the Stuart Weitzman billboards over the last quarter of 2015, just to gawk at those lovely SW5050 boots - not to mention the gorgeous Gisele Bundchen! Wishing I had legs as long and beautiful as hers.... well at least I can pretend.
This was supposedly a dress as listed on the website, however it came slightly short of what I would be comfortable of as a dress length. Nonetheless, a little black leggings or tights wouldn't hurt to help one feel " secure" in this small number.
If you have been following my Instagram account, I had once posted a picture of myself wearing an almost similar dress by " Victoria by Victoria Beckham". The designer dress had white pleated bell cuff sleeves that were cut longer and of course the dress was in crepe fabric rather than cotton. Although this item was listed as polyester without stretch but it turned out to be more like a t-shirt cotton material with a rounded collar which didn't impress me too much when I first opened the bag. However, with proper styling it somehow worked itself how in the total look and feel.
So now let's talk over-the-knee boots! I am loving this suede pair so much and though there are many similar styles out in the shops but remember to get one with the right fit so it doesn't bite at the ankles or wrap too tight around the calves. An easy to match boot style this Winter, try trending with short skirts, dresses or even over pants or jeans. Just be careful when mix and matching as there is a fine line with this style of boots between looking raunchy as in " Pretty Woman" or slightly sophisticated...
Would like to take this opportunity to highlight this new lip colour from Maybelline " Lipgradation" ( as released in Asia) or " Lip Studio Color Blur" ( as seen on their website) which I simply love! This shade is called " Orange" and it's an orangey red hue which is the latest colour you would see many celebrities trending instead of chilli red this winter.
A lovely matte texture which does not bleed at the edge of your lips and the cream pencil style lipstick comes with a sponge tip on the other end for easy blending around the edges.
