Your Name: Sally
Where are you from? Leeds, United Kingdom
Where did you wear this dress? Out to lunch in Leeds City Centre
How did you style this piece? This dress is so stunning and feminine it was crying out for something to toughen it up a bit … something to give a little contrast. So I teamed it with a black leather jacket. I would have added a pair of biker boots (yeah, I’m crazy) but it was really cold and I needed to wear thick tights so instead I wore a pair of black and white ballet pumps I have that look kind of like oxfords. Oh yeah, and I put on a soft pastel toned art deco style necklace to mirror the art deco feel of the dress.
Would you let your BFF borrow it? That’s a tough one. I would, maybe, if my best friend wasn’t my mum. It’s not exactly something I’d want my mum to wear.
In one sentence, tell us how this dress makes you feel. This dress makes me feel like the me I had been before I got ill and had to start using the wheelchair, when I used to be noticed everywhere I went.
