The Statement Dress

I did a double take while doing rounds online when I came across this Tulip-shaped cocktail dress by Lousie Amstrup, whom I'd never heard of before today. It's Killa! Its so beautifully constructed and I'm pretty sure the shape would be flattering to almost anyone. I imagine myself walking in to a crowded swanky bar and totally getting that WOW effect :-) (i imagine such moments aaaalot!)

Back to the subject. The best way to accessorise a statement piece is just to keep it simple and let the dress command all the attention.

Christian Louboutin pumps are instant glamour. The red soles are a stroke of genius, i hear he got his inspiration from an employee wearing red nail polish! Patent is still hot but I think the chiffon detail on the ambrosina pump is a great alternative and maintains that signature sexy look. It screams Dita Von Teese.

This box clutch by Anya Hindmarch is perfect. It's simple, sleek, shiny box shape is a homage to the 50s.

Ooooh! Nice. Stylish and so affordable. A good combination. Enamel Bangle Forever21 $7.80.

Have this ring and the colour is more metallic bronze, it looks silver in this picture. Accessorize £8.
