I have lots of dresses, but when someone asked me what my go-to LBD was like... I couldn't actually think of one that I had. When I was given a choice of dresses from Chiara Fashion, I immediately spotted this one and decided that it was the LBD for me!

The high waisted floaty skater skirt is really flattering for my shape, I love the fact that is has a collar, and the gold stitching gives it that little bit of extra detailing to make it a 'stand out from the crowd' black dress.
I styled it with all black; jacket, tights and boots and a gold ring and bangle (not pictured), sometimes I think simple is best, and in this case, it definitely is, as it leaves the dress to be the statement piece of the outfit.

I took these photos two weeks ago, before my eyes got sore. They're finally better now, thanks to a fantastic cream I was sent, which I will be blogging about in the next few days. I was going to take outfit photos today too, but it's been freezing and raining here all day... everyones Instagram pictures in the sun have been making me very jealous! I've still been out though, on the set of George Gentley with Pixie Lott... I'm going back tomorrow too, I might try get a quick snap with her if I don't look like a drowned rat again!
