"Colour me black.
The moods that change so frequently inside me.
The world just isn't big enough
to hide me anymore,
Surviving on my store of faded dreams.

The dramatic 'Gabriela' maxi dress by French label Maje is the epitome of dark femininity. Made from sheer, black, floral lace the dress features a crossover v-neck, long cuffed sleeves and a billowing, asymmetric hem. A spaghetti-strap playsuit in solid black is worn underneath.
Black is a classic colour to wear; flattering and chic, it goes with everything and is never, ever boring. Strictly speaking, it is not a colour but rather a combination of all colours and is produced by the entire absence of light. It symbolises the secretive, the unknown, and creates an air of mystery.
In keeping with the almost gothic, all black ensemble, I styled my dress with a classic pair of black Christian Louboutin shoes. A little flash of the blood red soles adds yet more drama to an already striking look.
This glorious dress is the perfect after-dark piece, embodying the cool, effortless aesthetic Maje has become renowned for.
