There are two things I love more than anything (besides my pugs), black clothing and sales, and when they are combined.. Oh boy! So you can imagine my excitement when I found the Sky Fall dress at Alice McCall's midseason sale earlier this year.
I am obsessed with this dress because it can literally be worn in so many different ways!
During the cooler weather I like to style it as more of a pinafore over a long sleeve top and with some boots, you could even pair it with some sheer (or thick) tights for extra warmth. The dress is actually quite thick as it is a wool/polyester blend, so styled right, it could be a great winter outfit!
I will do a more summer inspired look with this dress when Melbourne's weather decides to behave, so stay tuned for that.
Besides from its' versatility, my favourite thing about this little black dress is the buckle detailing on the sides of the bodice. Not just a unique piece of detailing, the buckles are also functional to help you custom fit your LBD to your own body. I love this feature because as we all know, sizing can vary from brand to brand. Although, Alice McCall are quite good with their sizing, if anything sometimes I find their sizes to be generous, particularly in dresses. But if in doubt, always try before you buy.
Alice McCall's MidSeason Sale is back on now, so head on over to their website or pop into your nearest store to see if you can find yourself a bargain! So many goodies with some great markdowns. I've said it before, I'm not one to buy designer items willy-nilly. If I'm going to invest in a piece, then it's going to be for something I think I will get a lot of wear out of and Alice McCall pieces are definitely something I can justify, but it makes it that much easier when its on sale!
