Every once in a while, I come across a dress that’s made so beautifully that it feels like it was made specifically for me and I impulsively pick it up. This pretty little number is one such perfect, impulsive buy. Black isn’t my favorite colour, neither is it my go to colour and yet when I spotted the dress I just knew I had to have it. Besides, you must agree with us that every girl’s cupboard must have a pretty black dress.
This all-black ensemble was honestly an inspired look. Black is a classy colour and teaming it with a neat pair of heels adds to the sophistication. The long sleeves with elastics at the elbow serve two wonderful purposes. One, it gives the sleeves a nice puffed look while allowing me to easily bend my elbows and swing it around as I please. Two, because it is long-sleeved I don’t have to fret about finding the perfect accessory for my arm or wrist. Neat isn’t it! Well, I can’t completely escape from accessorizing, can I? So for a neck-piece, I chose this beautiful choker.
Now with the complete look in place, I can almost see myself clinking my glass of wine and tipping my hat at someone across a well-lit room in this outfit or maybe busting into some foxy dance moves! *wink wink*
Dare we assume that Bangalore has finally tucked away the crazy heat and is slowly bringing out her wonderfully rainy side? Well, let’s hope we’ll soon see the sweater-weather side of her! Or should we say, umbrellas and raincoat weather?
