Alice dress - Ukulele
leather jacket and bowler bag - Topshop
patent cut out boots - River Island
lipstick - Rimmel x Kate Moss in 107
Guys, it's official - I'm head over heels in love with Ukulele and I ain't even talking about the instrument. I first encountered the London-based brand at Fashion Weekend, where their unique and completely gorgeous dresses made my heart flutter. After not much persuasion I ended up with the Alice dress, which combines a very feminine silhouette with a fully sheer fabric - there's no way you can get away without wearing a slip! As well as the grid like pattern, the collar is reminiscent of something that would appear in a Disney movie - it's overt quirkiness works well in conjunction with the sheerness of the dress, toning it down so it isn't too much. I decided to wear the dress with A.B.E (All Black Errythang), channeling a look I saw at Saint Laurent AW13 combining a girlish dress with a leather jacket, chunky patent boots and tights. The lack of colour also ensures all attention is on the dress, which it rightly deserves. Hats off to you, Ukulele.
