ShoppingTips - Asos Aztec Strapless Dress

I am jumping the gun a bit with this post as it must be mentioned the Asos dress has yet to arrive. However, as I was falling asleep last night this outfit just came to me! I had to immortalize the look before going on with my day. So here is my future outfit!

1. Asos Aztec Strapless Dress $33.21 (image via Asos)
2. BaubleBar Onyx Glitz Drop Earrings $26.00 (image via BaubleBar)
3. Christian Louboutin Rolando Pumps $745.00 (image via NeimanMarcus)

See why I chose these...

Once I saw the Asos dress it instantly reminded me of the Mary Katrantzou silhoutte, which I LOVE, but is currently out of my price range. Also, I loved Asos did not imitate the prints which MK is also infamous for, therefore being an inspiration not an imitation of MK items. So I asked my sister if she could see me wearing it (sometimes I need reassurance I am not being crazy, even-though I don't always listen) - she said yes! Click, click & it was purchased.

So there I am last night browsing through websites when I spotted the BaubleBar earrings, immediately I knew they were perfect for this dress as they complement the pattern yet also make a statement without taking away from the dress. When it comes to accessories I prefer to make a statement but remain minimal. Whilst I adore the over-piled look on others it just isn't me, so I know better than to go against my true personality. As for the shoes it was (these are already in my closet) a natural choice, more like an easy afterthought. Hair pulled up in topknot (focus remains on dress and earrings) & I'm almost ready to walk out the door. TBD: handbag, in the running an Anya Hindmarch clutch similar to the one here.
