Today I'm Wearing . . . Ruby Rocks Eastern Peacock Dress at Fuse Fashion!

Thursday 9 May 2013

I'm so into shirt dresses right now, they're such a cool shape and easy to wear. Today's outfit post features a beautiful printed button up dip hem shirt dress by Ruby Rocks at Fuse Fashion.

The Ruby Rocks Eastern Peacock Dip Hem Dress - £39, instantly caught my eye because I grew up staring at silk prints and embroidered pictures similar to this pattern in my grandfather's house, lost in the bright colours and delicate drawings. It's quite long on me, but I belted it up and ta daaaaa, one super cute dress for summer! My grandpopz would be proud of me embracing my oriental heritage ;)

Outfit: Dress - c/o Fuse Fashion, Bag - H&M, Boots - c/o SoYouShoes, Belt - New Look.

I took inspiration from Bai Ling's costumes in Wild Wild West and styled it up with some east meets west flavour by teaming it with black leather and fringing on both my boots and bag, adding some vibrant purple nail polish to pop against my bag!

The dip hem on the dress gives me a nice sense of security. I knew I'd made the dress shorter than it was meant to be, but the longer back and long sleeves made sure that my modesty was firmly intact all day and I felt really confident even when hit with a River Mersey summer breeze!

The boots are from So You Shoes - £35, and are my new fave shoes for sure. They're the perfect skirt and dress boots, that rare breed that you can look down on and smile at :)

The pattern of the dress is so vivid and busy that I went without jewellery for today. Tis' a special piece that comes between me and my jewelz but I felt it was a stand alone print that spoke volumes by itself. I'm not sure I'll ever wear it as a knee length style (I'm too short for that really) but I couldn't be happier with how it looks belted. This dress is definitely going to be a summer fave, I think it would look really cute with strappy heels for a summer wedding too!
