You can’t go wrong with a little black dress. They are as essential as the air we breathe (dramatic? Yes… wrong? Absolutely not.) But as essential as they are, I can’t say I have ever been as obsessed with an LBD as I am with this lil ANEW number I won in their Instagram competition! Seriously, I’ve never wanted to just stay in and take as many awkward ‘just about to go out’ candids in front of my half made bed as I did in this backless beauty… (So much so that I was even later out than usual…)
ANEW is a beautiful new womenswear brand based in Newcastle that offers ‘a sense of refined simplicity, fusing modern styles with timeless influences to create immaculate expression.’ That’s right gals, the sophisticated styles you’ve been searching for have arrived *insert sassy hair flick here* from sexy swimwear and multi way playsuits to figure hugging skirts and fierce dresses. I absolutely LOVE that they are a local business to me and after being so impressed with the quality of the dress that I received, I honestly can not actually wait to see what else they have to offer!
Slipping into what can only be described as the silky new love of my life, I was actually amazed at how great it made me feel. Not being a style I would normally go for… With it’s flattering asymmetric style hem and gathered halter neck the Caprice can definitely cater for any shape! (Real talk: one of the best things? You 100% do not need a bra; thanks to the gathered neck even those of us with no boobs can feel relaxed, hurrah!)
I always think about the versatility of an item of clothing before I buy so this of course ticks all of the boxes because you can style this beauty any which way you like! A wee subtle look here with nude lips, hoops and court heels but I’ll probably add a red lip, some statement earrings or fluffy heels for more of a dramatic look next time!
So there it is, I’m back (again) with a big love for my new favourite womenswear brand and seeing as we have suddenly plummeted into autumn you will be pleased to know I have just spied the the beginnings of an ANEW AW17 collection… *waves goodbye to wages*
