Goat Romeo Keyhole Dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Too Hot to Handle Hobo and Red Valentino Nude Platform Shoes

Goat Romeo Keyhole Dress Goat Romeo Keyhole Dress

For this cute day wear look, I’ve chosen a cute pink shift dress and a nude handbag and matching heels. The vivid pink dress takes centre stage, backed up ably by  nude accessories which will also go well with other looks.

Although I’ve classified this as a daywear look, it would also make the transition to evening wear by teaming it with a smaller bag.

Goat Romeo Pink Keyhole Dress

This dress is a sleeveless, bright pink shift dress made by the celebrity favourite designer, Goat. The attraction is in the detail – the cute keyhole detail to the neckline, the almost not there cap sleeves and the luxury of the pure wool crepe fabric.

Red Valentino Nude Platform Shoes Red Valentino Nude Platform Shoes

Marc by Marc Jacobs Too Hot to Handle Nude Hobo

Sometimes it’s really nice to have a large handbag which you can easily fit all your things into, and the Marc by March Jacobs Too Hot to Handle Hobo (pictured below) fits the bill on every count.

With it’s nude leather finish and polished gold tone hardware, this hobo is delightfully spacious. All the designer credentials are in place – the brand plaque on the front and unusually for a hobo you have the option of two straps – a shorter leather top handle and a longer adjustable cross body strap. The bag has a magnetic fastening and three pockets, one of which is zip fastening.

Red Valentino Nude Platform Shoes

Who doesn’t need a pair of nude heels? With their wide platforms (3.5cm), high block heel (13cm) and cut out lattice detail to the upper, these Red Valentino platform court shoes are perfect for lengthening your legs. Not only can you wear them with dresses, but they also look good with trousers and jeans and the wide platform sole helps them to feel not quite as high as they look when you’re wearing them.

Black and gold are great colours to team together for nights out – the slimming properties of black are legendary and gold adds just the right amount of opulence, which is perfect for an evening look.

The dress I’ve chosen for this look is this sexy little black peplum dress by Markus Lupfer. It’s a short dress, falling to about mid thigh and it’s made from a stretchy black jersey fabric which features sequin embellishment to the front and peplum and a striking, exposed, silver tone back zip fastening.

Although compact and suited to evening (in addition to day) use, this bag is really well organised.
