Plain much


Little Pink Dress
Comfy, plain, stylish.
Your everyday necessity. 

This pale pink power dress is pretty much an all-rounder. It's fitted enough to suite your body, yet loose enough for comfort. 
It's short enough to show some leg, yet longer than a dress that barely covers.
The sleeves are short enough to be worn in the summer, yet long enough to be worn in the winter.

So how about a multi-purpose dress? I think yes.
I introduce this wonderful beauty from Eva Boutique, Stellenbosch.

High Low


This garment IS the best of both worlds.
It's been seen on several looks on Lookbook.nu
I've seen it almost on every second tourist in Italy.

A skirt/dress, that's short in the front, and long at the back.
And I finally found out what it's called!
The Highlow (or something.)

Okay. So it comes in the form of a skirt or you can buy a dress with a similar bottom. I'm crazy about this. It's incredibly diverse. It fits each and every occasion, so this is definitely a SUPER must. Period. No Jokes.
It's perfect for the entire year, summer to winter and back. Pair it with tights, without tights, heels, jackets, everyday tops, hats, formal attire, anything. I'm literally over my head with this trend. I'm counting on seeing this at the end of the year in South Africa. It's stylish, classy and chic. 

What more do women want?

The Little Black Dress

This part of the shoot was actually shot the following day in Ice COLD weather. No exaggeration. Well, it's simple, sweet and fun. This dress great for a semi-formal event plus its hassle free! (I sound like one of those car sales women.) It's closely fitted the right length for a party or event and it's comfortable.
And what's always great with plain dresses, and that it's black, is that you can go all out with accessories! But you have to be smart when pairing it with its components. It's all about what type of look or mood you want to set with your outfit. Light feather earrings, a baby pink and silver bracelet and nude heels can give off an entirely different feeling than some chunky gold rings, metallic gold and blue earrings and a blue heel with golden studs or sequins. So be thoughtful and be certain of what you want to present of yourself <3

 Anyway, during the shoot, we decided to let Xanthe run around since it was so incredibly cold!

So this is what we came up with! Only available at Eva Boutique in Stellenbosch.
