“What is love,
But a form of,
~ Johnnie Rae
When I love something, I really love it and I really reeeeally love the gorgeous 'Rylie' dress by Emma Manley. So far I have three versions of Manley's signature dress, in a Bellini-esque peach & champagne colour (blogged here), in cool silver (blogged here) and now in chic, classic black.
A simple, easy to wear shape, 'Rylie' is the perfect day to night piece that can be worn pretty much anywhere, for any occasion. The dress has 3/4 length sleeves, a cute button detail to the front, pockets on the hips and ties on the side seams to give the dress a more structured shape. The most wow detail is the stunning patent leather collar and bodice; it toughens the dress up and immediately takes it from girly cute to impossibly cool.
I styled my dress with the most ah-may-zing shoes; the 'Natasha' pumps by Alexander Wang. These leopard print hair-calf heels feature a pointed toe, an angular 4.5inch heel with a mirrored panel & a flattering low V-front that makes legs look like they go on forever. Half shoe, half bootie, 'Natasha' is a fabulously fierce addition to any girls shoe collection!
