A defining moment

An whimsical lace dress, cinched with a black studded belt and paired with pearls and chunky rings.
If my style were to be define in one look, this would be my signature statement. Serene and feminine accessorised with toughened adornments and quirky twists on the predictable.

The dress is from Topshop, last season, and the accessories are from Accessorize.

I wore an animal print and purple tassel scarf from River Island, and strutted out with black opaque tights and studded cowboy boots, submerged in my big red coat with gold buttons which makes me look like a toy soldier.

I’d love to hear what you think, and how your style could be defined in one outfit?

What signatures your unique look?

Thank you as always for reading my ramblings!
