AllSaints Restrain Dress, Fiorelli Rustle Clutch Bag and Morgan Icone Shoes

AllSaints Restrain Dress AllSaints Restrain Dress

I’ve kept clear of black for this evening look. It sometimes seems that the whole world wears black for evening occasions, but there really is no need to wear it all the time. Sometimes it’s fun to wear a lighter colour so that you actually stand out against the sea of black! So with this caveat in mind, I have teamed together the AllSaints Restrain Dress in nude, the cappucino and white Fiorelli Rustle Clutch and the Morgan Icone Shoes.

AllSaints Restrain Dress

This AllSaints evening dress is hand embellished with three broad rows of silver and rose gold sequins. The sequins are distributed randomly for fluidity, and no two dresses are alike.

The dress is sleeveless and fastens at the front with a lace tie  to the v neck. It’s a loose fitting style which falls to above the knee, and would look good teamed with pale or nude tights.

Please be aware that this dress is sheer, so you may want to wear it over a slip – the Ballet Bandeau slip, also in nude and also from AllSaints, would be suited to this purpose.

Fiorelli Rustle Frame Clutch Bag

This is a frame clutch with a silver clasp set into the frame. It is textured with tiny fronds of fabric hanging down as though they were embellishing an exotic bird, and the hexagonal shape draws in the eye.

The clutch has a hidden shoulder strap (useful if you need your hands for carrying food and drink) and there is also a zip pocket inside for keeping a few bits and pieces secure.

Morgan Icone Platform Sandals

These attractive sandal by French brand Morgan team together a brown and deep red upper with gold hardware and a shiny gold high heel and platform sole for an opulent look.

The shoes feature two buckle fastening ankle straps so that your feet are held securely, and there is a further buckle fastening strap over the toes for the perfect fit. With the wide platform sole that effectively reduces how high the heel feels when wearing, these are certainly a great choice for dancing the night away.

AllSaints Conical Tee Dress, Fiorelli Silver Jewelled Clutch and AllSaints Dixy Shoes

What with it being the party season an’ all, I didn’t think I needed an excuse to come up with another glam party ensemble, where I’ve combined two items from AllSaints – the Conical Tee Dress and the Dixy Shoes, with a rather glitzy white and silver bejewelled clutch from Fiorelli, called the Julius (because you want to Caesar it, perhaps?).

AllSaints Conical Tee Dress

This dress is a cap sleeve mini dress which features dense hand embellishment with shiny black beads, sequins and chains. The base fabric is sheer and there are three areas around the centre of the dress which remain unembellished, allowing a sexy glimpse of skin. It’s nice and short, and the shiny beads reflect the light making it ideal for the dance floor. It’s available in sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 and the model in the photo is wearing a size 8.

The Fiorelli Julius Silver Jewelled Clutch adds a bit, well a lot actually, of festive glitz to the look. The bag is actually white with a silver faux python print and the centre is embellished further with sparkling clear jewels. The bag has a kiss lock fastening in silver tone and also a (concealed) shoulder strap for lots of carry options.

One of the things that I particularly like about this bag is the included interior zip purse, which is perfect for storing your key and a few pound coins safely. The bag also has a further slip pocket, perfect for a credit card, and it is fully lined in Fiorelli signature fabric.

AllSaints Dixy 145 Shoes AllSaints Dixy 145 Shoes

AllSaints Dixy 145 Shoes

The AllSaints Dixy 145 Shoes are a new AllSaints style for the Autumn Winter 2012 season. The leather upper has a metallic finish, created by combining a patent leather finish onto a suede background. This is known as “caviar” skin. As with most AllSaints footwear, they are made entirely from leather, featuring a leather lining and a leather sole.

The clue to the height of the heel is given in the name of the shoes, the 145 referring to 145mm or a towering 5.7″ (this varies slightly according to the size of the shoe – the size 37 is 145mm). They also thankfully have a wide exposed platform sole to mitigate the height a little.

With both the heel and exposed platform covered in the same caviar leather, these hand finished shoes are perfect for completing any seasonal look.
