Another Angry Bird

It is only right that my first blog post of 2014 should feature two of my favourite Designers; Ireland's Emma Manley and Natalie B Coleman. The top, designed by Natalie, was a Christmas present from my Bestie & seriously, he couldn't have chosen a better gift for me! It is a beautiful, unique piece, featuring the same crazy Ostrich head with Monkey teeth (I know I know, a fantastic combination!) as my much loved Natalie B Coleman Ostrich dress (blogged here).

The Ostrich illustration is hand-drawn, water-coloured and digitally-printed onto a black background. Combined with the asymmetrical shape of the top, it is a perfect mix of grunge & ultra-modern cool. The top can be dressed up, dressed down & dressed every which way in between!

I paired it with a stunning Emma Manley skirt for a Christmas night out; the 'Dakota' leather skirt in beautiful metallic gold (also blogged here). It features a zip and snap fastener to the front and hand cut leather with a scalloped edge. The front of the skirt is shorter than the back making it the perfect party piece to show off long tanned legs!

I finished the outfit off with simple black suede court shoes, delicate jewellery (silver to clash subtly with the gold skirt) and a dark, berry lipstick.
