Black Elegance

I have never been used to wearing only black. I have always liked a bit of colour as I think black can very easily make you appear pale and washed out. I have quite a lot of black clothes, but I always wear other colours with it.

A few weeks back I was invited to an event in London hosted by Bloggers Love and the dress code was All Black City Chic so I decided to go for a more preppy look than I normally do. My thoughts were since I'm taking it out of my comfort zone with being all black I will try something a bit different with my style as well.

This is what I wore.

I wore a black dress from Ax Curve (old) with sweetheart neckline and laces, black tights, black shoes, a very stylish belt from Asos, buy it HERE and a gorgeous blazer from Taking Shape. I only have got two blazers in my wardrobe, but they don't get used often. I bought this black one for this event as I thought it would be a good staple in my wardrobe for any occasion. When I received it I was very curious how it would look and I was so pleasantly surprised. It looked so lovely on me. It nipped me in where it should if I had it buttoned up and it looked just as nice open. I love the faux leather details on the shoulder and around the pockets. It makes it stand out from a normal black blazer. You can buy it HERE for only £19!!

 I got lots of compliments for my outfit which always is nice to get.

Part 2 of this post will come tomorrow with lots of fun photos from the event itself.
