Rosemunde Lace Dress and #AW14 Swarovski!

Tuesday 16 September 2014

Some days I wake up with an urge to throw on a pretty frock, and dress like a lady. Sunday was one of those days.

I think this beautiful lace dress from Danish brand Rosemunde is one of my wardrobe favourites, I don't own anything else in this colour and it makes me feel like KMiddy. It's really well made and has a nice fit - not too tight and not too loose.

Rosamunde Lace Dress
Ethical Eel Skin Purse

Dress: Rosamunde - Necklace: Mi Moneda - Sandals: New Look - Purse: Makki (c/o) - Bracelet: Swarovski (c/o)

I accessorised my look with some of my most loved jewels, this rose gold Mi Moneda necklace and my new sparkly bolt micro bracelet from Swarovski. Both pieces are delicate enough to work with my pretty lace dress, the bracelet comes with a matching earrings set (which I also adore), and surprisingly they're really affordable!

Makki Aubergine Large Zip Wallet

My luxurious aubergine purse is by UK brand Makki, a company who specialise in eel skin handbags. If you've never touched eel skin before, it's the softest fabric ever and is approximately 2-3 times stronger than cowhide! Makki's designs are by-products of the wider food industry and they're an ethical company who believe in 'responsible luxury'. At first I was a bit unsure about the thought of eel skin accessories, but after seeing this purse up close and reading Makki's back story, I'm in love with the brand and their entire range! it turns out Kate Middleton is a fan too... We're almost always on the same page. ;)

Are you a fan of lace? Do you own any eel skin accessories?

  4. I can totally see the DoC (Duchess of Cambridge) rocking that dress! So intrigued by eel skin - never heard of that before!

  6. This is gorgeous on you Tara! Don't tell the princess but you're definitely rocking this dress better than she could ;) I love the lace detailing and your pretty white heels add a real edge. Your bracelet adds some real dazzle and aubergine is a really unique colour; how deep is that purple? Beautiful!
