I finally got to wear this gorgeous silk new dress I purchased from the Aqua sample sale last week. From the moment I saw it I knew it would be perfect, with it's the parachute style, colour blocking and length it would be one of those dresses I could dress up or down, and for £30 I couldn't leave it behind. I also purchased two other dresses, a yellow midi and a leather bodycon maxi which I cannot wait to wear and of course show you all!!!


As I was invited to the preview it was not like other sample sales full of chaos, instead I was able to shop in a semi relaxing environment. But on my second trip on the last trading day, it was packed with shoppers grabbing the last pieces on the rails and orange was definitely the main theme on that Sunday afternoon in Brick Lane with the orange Aqua shopping bags present on every street corner.

 I met the talented Beren, the technical director and the gorgeous Julie, founder of Aqua who were both so helpful and passionate about the brand. 









I accompanied Mr LTB to a photo shoot near Waterloo and decided to take advantage of these red sunglasses and graffiti artwork for my own photos.

My outfit - Aqua dress, H&M necklace, Zara bag, Vintage sunglasses, bangles: green & pink h&m, silver spike Internacionale, gold vintage & India, blue ring accessorize


This is seriously going to be one of my "when not sure what to wear" dresses pick the silky parachute dress - a staple and definitely makes a statement! And because this dress I think does all the talking I chose to keep it simple by adding this pink necklace. This is definitely a brand to check out as the dresses are super long enough for heels and fit extremely well. In the past I have bought many pieces from the London store as the detail and cut is always on point!

What a short week it has been, again the weekend is upon us....YAY!!! I will be catching up with my fave blogs and reading mags, time to relax I think ;) Hope you all have a fab one x

What do you think of my new dress?

  4. What a cool dress by Aqua! I think because of your height you are able to pull it off - I think if I wore it (I'm not short but I am hourglassy) people would think I was pregnant! ha! I especially like your bib necklace with it.

  9. That dress is gorgeous. But in all reality, only a tall person could pull that off like you did. Can I have a couple inches??
