OUTFIT INSPIRATION: Topshop Gothic Glamour

I must admit, I went off of Topshop for a while...their prices can be quite high and I hate owning the same clothes as everyone else. BUT, recently I just can't seem to stay away, they have far too many beautiful items to offer and I've been browsing their online store regularly, teasing myself with clothes I can't afford, (gosh I hate being a student). Here's an outfit from Topshop I wish I owned, but don't, sigh.


1. Poppy lace dress by Jones and Jones, £60
2. Ankle socks, £5
3. KONFETTI fine glitter lace ups, £60

The shape of this dress is divine, the sleeves will cover upper arms, (I don't know if any one else has an upper arm complex but I seem to!), and the box pleats in the skirt give it body and structure. The lace detail is glamorous with a hint of Gothic yet sophistication and well, who can resist a peter pan collar!? I would pair this beauty with these stunning glitter brogue style shoes and a pair of simple black ankle socks to keep the black theme running through the outfit.  

By the way I have a sponsored giveaway coming soon, I've chosen something nice and summery for you to win, exciting!

  3. The dress is lovely! I like the brogues too, but you could easily make glitter brogues yourself :)

  4. My friend recently brought these shoes, she says they are the best buy she has made so far! Too bad for me I'm not a size 6... They're even more gorgeous in really life, too!
