Rich, dark but warm colours are really catching my eye at the moment and this little gem is no exception. Unfortunately this month I needed to invest in a new HiFi so I had to exercise some self control and just admire this dress from afar. The sleeves to the elbow, the lace panel, deep aubergine colour and very subtle peplum give this piece classical look, while still being on trend at the moment; a combination which makes this piece an investment rather than a seasonal purchase. There's just something so vintage about this that appeals to me. My line of thinking was if I can't give this dress the outing it deserves, the least I can do, was give it the attention it deserves by sharing it with others. You can check out what other colours it comes in here. Have you been admiring anything from afar this month?
