Price: Baroque tapestry skater style dress £40.00
Availability: River Island
I thought for the new My Closet post I'd show you what I wore on New Years Eve last night, as it's topical and a new addition to my wardrobe courtesy of Santa.
This tapestry dress was perfect for the occasion as it's so thick, and I spent my New Year going in and out of bars whilst waiting for the fireworks to begin in the city centre. I paired it with my shoe boots and leather jacket with fur collar as I wanted to be warm outside but look good inside: I didn't want to be freezing or have to peel off the layers and resemble a sweaty snowman!
The dress is also perfect for my shape as it goes in at the waist and I have an extremely petite waist compared to my hips, so it was complimentary without being uncomfortable. I'd definitely recommend this for hourglass figures or those aiming to accentuate their waists.
Although the baroque trend flowed through A/W12 I know I''ll get lots of wear out of this as I spend my life in patterned clothing, so whether baroque is in or out next Winter I'm sure I'll be here in the same dress (maybe just styling it a little differently).
I know dresses similar to these are still available in River Island (here) so if you like what you see you can still pick one up, and there's a different range of colours now too perfect for Spring (think Pink)!
Happy New Year!
