Monochrome

Waistcoat: Boohoo
Lace Dress: 18 and East
Sandals: Garage Shoes
Bag: Bagable*

I have to admit, I'm feeling pretty angelic in this ensemble although the fabulous studded black leather waistcoat does toughen it up a teeny bit. I really love the 'clean-ness' of a monochrome look if that makes any sense to you, and there's nothing like a white dress for bringing out even the slightest of summery tanned skin. 

I built this outfit up in my head around this gorgeous Kipling shoulder bag that I got sent from Bagable, a website that specialises in selling a large range of branded bags and luggage at really good prices. I went for this black and white one for two reasons: firstly because I don't have ANY small shoulder bags that aren't satchels and this one is the perfect size for all my essentials and secondly, because it can be turned into a cute clutch bag within seconds!

The Kipling brand was created by three Belgian women who were inspired by their travels to create a range of bags that would be functional as well as affordable and nice to look at...I'd say I definitely see this in my bag I mean, it wipes clean! How useful is that in a clutch bag? Now I won't have to worry about accidentally putting my clutch down in a puddle of cocktail ever again. (Hey it happens, OK?!)
