Inspired by the bold patterns on display at New York Fashion Week’s African Icons event, I went searching for some african influenced designs for my own wardrobe.
This animal print Jersey dress (above) from Kaleidoscope caught my eye at the excellent price of £65. If you’re really feeling bold then there are also a pair of matching patterned shades!
Black and white is another trend that’s going to be everywhere in the coming months and I found a nice summery black and white dress on the same site. Yes, I know it’s September, but I’m hoping for an Indian Summer! You’ll find all their dresses here.
Naturally, after an enjoyable half hour looking at their dresses I had to have a peek at the shoes and I loved the diamantes on this wedge from Moda Pelle. A wee bit pricy at £129.95, but Christmas is fast approaching so maybe I can ask someone nicely :-)
I’m a big fan of wedges as if you’re short like me they give you the height you need without the discomfort of high heels. They are also more versatile than heels and look great with pretty much any length of skirt or dress, or in a more casual look with skinny jeans.
A couple of more items for my ever growing wish list!
