No Same Dress Fear...

(Dress: C/O Bird on a Wire @ ASOS Marketplace, Shoes: Vintage, Necklace: Camden Market)

Inspired by a certain Miss Hepburn in a certain famous Breakfast at Tiffany's film, this vintage 50's dress, straight from ASOS Marketplace is one of the most gorgeous pieces I own; and without sounding braggy nobody else has it. But fear not, this all leads me to where I'm heading...

This festive season, the wonderful ladies at ASOS Marketplace have come up with a pretty stonking concept, and one I couldn't wait to get involved in. The idea goes by the name 'No Same Dress Fear' and backs buying some beautiful and completely unique pieces this party season; meaning you will never see anyone in the same piece as you-making your outfit truly one of a kind. Just imagine rocking up to the work 'do in a sassy sixties dress, whilst Sally from HR complains Mindy from Accounts has the same Topshop dress as her- disaster! But with the selection over at ASOS ranging from 40s flapper frocks to 90s grunge numbers, you are truly spoilt for choice.

I decided to go with the 'less is more' motto when styling this dress, and teamed it with my favourite vintage pumps, some beads I picked up in Camden market when I was about 14 (rediscovering them was pretty exciting!) and a slick of red lippy (Topshop if you're asking) and I can't wait to sport it for some festive fun!

    But you look so classy and elegant.
