T by Alexander Wang...and ramblings

It was hot today so in order to celebrate the fact I donned my new T by Alexander Wang dress.

I make this sound like a big deal but truthfully this is one of those clothing items that requires zero thought or effort. Slip it on and you're good to go. And you get to say "it's Wang"...which always amuses me.

I bought this recently from Shopbop.com...and bought it because it was in their sale.

Link!

It's just a jersey dress but with the simple twist of an aysmmetrical hem. Nice and easy. The quality feels good (although so do my H&M maxi tank dresses - if I am completely honest:p), it's soft and heck....I was feeling lazy.








Dress: T by Alexander Wang
Bracelet: Cheap Monday
Sunglasses: Gucci (this season)
Necklace: taken off after these photos but for the purposes of completeness from H&M
Shoes: TRF at Zara (this season)
Bag: Russell & Bromley studded bag (as featured in my very first YouTube video)

Talking of the bag....

I am on a little bit of a DIY mission and have ordered some studs from Ebay to resurrect my bag....over time those little things have fallen off to reveal the blue bases.



I can't be doing with that.

And I still love this bag as much as I did when I first laid eyes on it.

As far as I am concerned any leather + hardware combination has me "in there like swimwear" (to quote Geordie Shore).

So wish me luck....and if there are any studs left over, the Converse will be the next victim!

Have any of you tried a DIY studding project?

  7. This is the first summer that I've actually put my 5"2 self in long dresses like this and I'm loving it - aside from my maxi. Combined fall + flash in one movement, in front of gridlock traffic. Gahh.

    The bag is gorgeous, are some studs blue or is that the light?

  12. I love DIY projects, I got some flatback Swavroski Crystals and superglued them in floral patterns on the back of a boring little mirror that I had. It came out so cute. Good luck with your bag project. Oh and I love the dress, but it looked so long online. Optical illusion?

  15. I love the dress! It doesn't seem so awkwardly asymmetrical on you as it did on the model — it looks completely awesome. Fwiw, I like the blueness of the studs. They add a tiny bit of something to the bag.

  24. These shoes are a huge hit over here in Croatia, it seems like everyone has at least a pair. They are very comfortable (every brand I've tried so far)and so comfortable to walk in.

    Lovely outfit as always.

  34. I absolutely love everything about this post! Your outfit is beautiful and I can't stop obsessing over your accessories! I scoured the Gucci website for those sunglasses but they just don't fit into my college student budget :( perhaps i'll find some cheap knock offs at forever 21? Fingers crossed! and p.s. those shoes are amazing! Good luck with DIY-ing on the purse!
