Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Red Dress, 3.1 Phillip Lim Bubble Clutch and Sam Edelman Niland Platforms

This look is a 24/7, day thro’ to evening look which has as its centre piece the lipstick red Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Dress, accompanied by the 3.1 Phillip Lim Bubble Quilted Clutch and the Sam Edelman Niland Platforms, both in black.

Red and black is a dramatic and eye catching combination, ideal for wearing when you don’t have a second chance to make a first impression.

Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Red Dress

This sleeveless, above the knee dress is made from a stretchy jersey fabric which has a draped neckline. In true Anglomania style, the hemline is asymmetrical. The dress features a v back – which is not so low that you can’t wear a bra – and has a concealed back zip fastening.

I like this dress because it’s one of those 24 hour dresses which is ideal for style mavens on the go.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that clutches are solely for evening wear. This new clutch from 3.1 Phillip Lim, with its gorgeously tactile finish and discrete gold hardware, is an oversized style which is also great for day wear too. The clutch is 38cm wide and it also has a zip pocket inside.

The bubble wrap effect is just on the front of the clutch – the reverse is plain black leather and there is a slip handle on the back so you can carry the bag in this way if you choose. You can also fold the top of the clutch forwards (if you haven’t over filled it) to display the contrasting black leather against the bubble leather.

Sam Edelman has certainly become a popular shoe designer of late and the Niland is a classic style, which is frequently reintroduced, sometimes with variations to the colour or texture of the leather.

These shoes have a very high 5″ stiletto heel, which fortunately is mitigated by the equally impressive 1.5″ platform sole, so the shoes feel as though they just have 3.5″ heels. In a classic and timeless court style, Sam Edelman has added his signature originality by virtue of the the droplet shaped cut out detail at the toes, creating a more discrete version of a peep toe. Perhaps we should call it a glimpse toe!
