Daughter Of Eve

"I, Eve, sad mother
Of all who must live,
I, not another,
Plucked bitterest fruit to give
My friend, husband, lover"
~ Christina Rossetti

'Eve' is one of my favourite of all Manley dresses. And that's saying something as I am besotted with all things Manley.

In a beautiful purple and silver colourway, 'Eve' features distressed leather front and back panels with Manley's signature stud detail. The side panels are soft jersey, with ties that can give more definition to the dress.

I paired the dress with a beautiful clutch by handbag & accessories designer Nadia Minkoff; the cool distressed silver of the bag compliments the leather panels of the dress perfectly! Oh I love this bag, it is a simple, timeless classic and the perfect size to hold all my bits 'n' pieces on a night out. And check out the beautiful ring, also by Nadia Minkoff; the stone seems to reflect the same distressed silver as the bag and the dress. They all match perfectly.

A simple pair of nude Christian Louboutin shoes completed my look. Nude shoes are an essential addition to every girls wardrobe. They can make even the shortest legs look like they go on forever. Like magick!

A Highland Fling

"And this cloth raised high above all others,
This humble textile of many colours,
This vibrant symbol of our land,
That leaves all others tired and bland."
~ Cyber Artist

If you're thinking that I seem to be obsessed with tartan and all things Scottish at the moment, you would be absolutely right (see here, and here). I've just added another gorgeous little tartan number to my wardrobe!

Primark's now iconic tartan dress was the It Dress of 2013. Everyone had one, except me, and I wanted one so badly it hurt! I had to wait until now, three years later, to finally get hold of one though (thank you eBay!), and it was definitely worth the wait. Of course now I'm pretty much the only one with one, which makes it even more special!

I love the slightly school girl vibe of this cute dress, I love the Peter Pan collar, and I love the girlie pussy bow. I love everything about it. For me, it's very much a day dress, so I styled it here with a cool pair of flat brogues. I almost added some black tights, but it's Spring and the sun is shining, so I absolutely refuse to even look at hosiery again until the first signs of snow next Winter!
