Sheer Black Dress

Nail Polish Rimmel. Earrings Accessorize. Rings Temporary:Secretary
Warehouse generously asked me to choose a dress from their website (LOOK Mag prize), and I chose this black midi dress with gold buttons, and it came with the fuscia pink belt. When I received the Warehouse dress through the post, it didn’t come with the undergarment as shown on the site. I’ve just double checked their website right now and it appears I should have got the underskirt. Anyway, at the time I didn’t think twice about it, I was over-excited to try it on. I improvised with a black leotard and a bodycon skirt, and that is what I am wearing underneath the dress. I’ve styled the dress up with a leather jacket and a hat that Accessorize sent me. I will put the photos up of this in my next post.
Thank you for the lovely comments on my new necklace in the previous post. RubyGold very kindly featured my blog on their website after seeing that post, you can read their article here. I am just so pleased that they like it, it’s nice to be able to communicate with brands and hear what they think of blogging!

    Stunning dress. Love the length of it & the sheer fabric over the top.
    also coveting your rings, especially the black & gold one – I do love a cocktail ring.
    enjoy your time off xxx

    Also where is your black leather jacket from? I've been looking for one for ages and this one seems perfect!

    I've never actually chosen something sheer, but I really want to! This dress seems lovely!

    Is Warehouse going to send you the undergarment for the dress – I hope you get it although I do love how you've improvised with it! I;m just about to read the article in which you were featured now. Have a lovely two weeks annual leave :).

    Wow I love that dress, it's so gorgeous on you. What a fab choice! I love that you and your mum are fighting over it. My mum appreciates my clothes but we definitely don't share the same style.

  22. 23rd October 2011 / 4:42 pm

    This dress is lovely!

  23. 23rd October 2011 / 4:57 pm

    Such a gorgeous dress, hope Warehouse send you the proper under garment though! xx

    I love sheer dresses and this one looks lovely on you. x

  25. 23rd October 2011 / 5:21 pm

    I hate it when sheer items are shown with something under then dont come with one. This looks so autumnal and sweet, though maybe sheer fabris isn't best for a Newcastle Autumn/ Winter!

  26. 23rd October 2011 / 5:32 pm

    Good choice! The dress is gorgeous!

    I love the layered dress and the pop of pink and yellow are perfect touches!

  34. 23rd October 2011 / 9:35 pm

    Gorgeous outfit, as always. I love how you layered the sheer dress with a shorter dress underneath. And the pink accent looks so pretty with it.

  41. 24th October 2011 / 12:46 pm

    Such a cutie dress, I love it! I also got those black shoes from Miss Selfridge that you wore to Look Fashion Show! I wore them to work on Saturday for our 'glam day' and they didn't hurt me at all! No sore feet for me! SUCCESS! 🙂 x

  42. 24th October 2011 / 3:16 pm

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment 🙂 I know what you mean about Topshop in the metrocentre, it always takes an age to pay for things in there! I love this dress on you, you should keep it – the length really suits you! x

    an amazing choice, sarah, you look gorgeous! the leather with it is proper cute, too. have a lovely time on your annual leave, i'm on half term for a week now and trying to make the most out of it haha!

    fashion marketing sounds like an interesting course, i've always been into the whole side of fashion like that. hmm, might have to keep this in mind! (not like i'm like four years away from uni or anything!)

    I love this sheer black dress you picked out. It'll be really versatile for the fall and winter!

  49. 25th October 2011 / 9:30 am

    Oooft I loooove that dress Sarah! It's a lovely twist on the cheer chiffon maxi skirt trend which is in the shops at the moment (not knocking that, I really want a lacey one!). Have a lovely couple of weeks off m'dear 🙂 ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  50. 26th October 2011 / 12:09 am

    Love this dress! Think I might have to have a cheeky "try it on" soon, but I very much doubt I'll be able to pull it off as lovely as you! Well done for winning the look competition. I didn't even know – this is how out of the loop I am at the moment! I obviously was rooting for you to win from the beginning though so… huge well done!! jealous of all your lovely prizes lol. xxx

  51. 27th October 2011 / 4:55 pm

    Aaaah, love your pick from Warehouse, it looks wonderful on you, so wish that I could pull off the midi length. Loving the contrast with the leather too, gorgeous-ness!

  52. 29th October 2011 / 6:59 pm

    I don't usually wear black (well I haven't since my goth phase 15 years ago!) but this dress is lovely; it suits you really well!

  53. 9th November 2011 / 8:30 pm

    All these outfits are amazing as always =) I love your blog, it is sweet and delicate, your pictures make me dream =) And I like your flushed cheeks, cupcake cute !

    Sorry if all this doesnt make sense, all these words are what I feel like when I read your blog =)

    xxx Vee
