Burgundy and Blush - June 2018

I wore this outfit to a christening over the weekend and received so many compliments about my dress. The dress is from Sheike and is so flattering for any body type as the cinched waist creates nice lines and curves. I love the colour and style! Burgundy (or wine given its colour is listed as merlot 😉) is so on-trend for the Autumn/Winter season and the one shoulder-sleeve – oh la la! I love it! Hehe. I was worried I wouldn't be all that warm in this dress especially since it's been so chilly here but I was fine. I also love the gathered frill across the front left side and asymmetric hemline. It’s one of those dresses you have to have in your closet because it is perfect for a function or date night - sexy and stylish yet classy and appropriate.

I love pairing burgundy with blush; the soft light pink shade contrasts against the deep red-brown, highlighting its warmth, so I paired it accordingly with blush accessories.  These patent pumps are from Nine West and are on major sale at the moment – an extra 30% off the sale price! I wear the Martina heel for work every day because it is so comfortable yet long enough to add height and still elongate the legs. As for the earrings – in love! They are from Lovisa and like my dress, I received so many compliments about them and they matched perfectly with my shoes and bag. Plus, because they are a neutral shade they can be paired with so many other outfits, particularly in the warmer months. I have attached a photo of my accessories.

With the dress, I had to go up one size as it is a small make. It would also look amazing with black ankle boots for a more casual look such as, for a date night or dinner with friends. I highly recommend it!
