All The Jewellery I Never Got

Natalie B Coleman's incredible SS12 collection, entitled All The Jewellery I Never Got, was allegedly inspired by the fact that no man in her life had ever bought her jewellery. I'm pretty sure this isn't the case anymore as a) she is absolutely gorgeous and b) she recently got married and it's practically the law that Husbands have to buy their Wives pretty baubles! 

Her stunning collection is filled with the most incredible dresses, tops, scarves, skirts, shirts etc; the stand out piece for me has always been this incredible blue asymmetrical dress. A bold, unique, statement piece, it features an intricate pleated shoulder detail, irregular hem (knee length on one side, floor length on the other side) and a hidden zip detail at the back. The beautiful illustrations are all hand drawn, water coloured and digitally printed. I've never seen anything quite like this amazing dress before; I've worn it twice now and each time I have been surrounded by people asking me about it. I feel like a modern day Warrior Princess when I wear it and I love all the attention it gets!

I have styled it here with sky high shoe boots from Topshop and ironically, one of the best pieces of jewellery I have ever been given. My Husband commissioned Simon Pure Jewellers to make the silver, hammered cuff to my exact wrist measurements. It is gorgeous and was such a romantic gift.  I finished the look off with a simple, bright NARS red lip.
