De-Groovy

After the success of my Modette Dress I've become a little more open to the shift dress shape and higher bust lines. So when I came across this bell sleeve black crochet number on Torrid I really wanted to see if it would work with my shape.

Black Crochet Bell Sleeve Dress - $68.50US
Luichiny Eye Doll Heels - $89.95US
Sportsgirl Leather Bow Headband - $9.95

We have a winner! I'm wearing this dress in my usual size '0' and it is a perfect fit for that 70's shape. I've taken this in a little to fit tighter on my figure but you can wear it as is for a more classic silhouette.

The fabric is fantastic and during winter this style can be rocked with black or bright tights, chunky heels and boots. The bell sleeves are what make this dress pop and turn it into more of a statement outfit rather than just little black dress. This style is short but not mini, you can wear it with or without stockings and you won't have any issues.

I've paired this with two simple black accessories - my new babies from Luichiny shoes and the most adorable chunky leather bow headband from Sportsgirl. The bigger the platform the better for this style dress to suit the 70's feel.

Now this dress did not jump out at me when I originally noticed it online. I have this issue a lot and from the comments I get on a regular basis you guys feel the same way. I always look past the video or the image and think of how I can make that item amazing.

Luichiny Eye Doll Heels - $89.95US

Every time I get a new pair of shoes from Luichiny I swoon like crazy. They fuel my obsession for huge heels and chunky platforms. These babies stand at 5.5 inches with a 2 inch platform. They are medium width, true to size and really comfortable to wear due to the large platform base.

You can get these is black (as shown), Red, Fuchsia and Cobalt Blue and leopard print. I'm trying to resit the urge to get all of these colours! I will be featuring these and a few more styles from Luichiny in the next month so keep your eyes out for super high heels!

Behind the camera again is the always brilliant Michael Alesich from Lucky and Rice. This set plus another to go live in a few days was so fun to shoot!
