You all probably know by now that I am the biggest black slip dress advocate in Australia, if not the whole world if we were looking at it closely! I absolutely love the things. While I've always been a sucker for the 'basics' (their ability to be accessorised every way possible to create a new outfit gets me every time!), the black slip dress has made its way into my wardrobe in a number of variations and I always find myself turning to it when choosing outfits. My absolute undoubted number 1 wardrobe favourite.
My ultimate ways to accessorise a slip dress? Pop a white t-shirt underneath for a more casual day look, add a statement pair of earrings and pointed heels for a nighttime look, or just wear it by itself with some cool accessories and a crossbody bag. Heck - you can even turn the shorter slip dresses into slip tops if you have mastered the art of tucking. The possibilities are literally endless.
This gorgeous silky LPA number arrived in my hands last week from FWRD, one of my favourite online stores stocking the most curated selection of mid to high end items. You know, those pieces that you quickly determine you need in your wardrobe, hehe. I wanted to create a romantic, nighttime look with this LPA slip dress (inspired by it's stunning sky-high slit) - so teamed it back with my favourite Christie Nicolaides earrings (similar here) and the most perfect YSL evening bag. These Kendall + Kylie pointed heels also recently made it into my (ever growing) shoedrobe and I couldn't be more obsessed, they are pretty much perfect and suited the dress to a tee. Together, to me this look is a perfect evening outfit created with pretty much a girl's wardrobe staple pieces. Even better.
BUT WAIT FOR IT.
THE BEST PART IS ...
The best news you've probably heard all day is that FWRD are having a HUGE SALE for their Australian customers! Starting today, you can get between 15 - 25% off your favourite items and the pieces that have been sitting in your Wish List for longer than you want them to (there's nothing better than moving things from Wish List to Cart ... woo!) with code GIFTFWRD. Yes, you can now get yourself that coveted YSL Bag you've had your eye on for TWENTY FIVE PERCENT OFF (!!!) or those Valentino shoes that your feet will thank you for, for years to come.
I certainly will be going a little crazy, I have my eye on these Elina Linardaki Sandals, to die for Valentino Pumps, and also this Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag. Surprisingly enough, there's also a few more slip dresses I need to get my hands on, including this little Protaganist Blush Pink silky dream. Eeep!
