Petite Outfit Idea #7 Golden Edged (Smart Casual/Date)

Boo!

I'm the type of girl who lives in her pyjamas, I have to change right into them whenever I get home! They're just so comfortable and easier to move around in. But I do like to dress up once in a while like any girl :p So I have a little LBD number for you all today. LBDs are a staple item for any girl's wardrobe.

Petite Outfit Ideas: LBD || Life as a Petite


I bought this cute little dress from H&M in Hong Kong. It was on sale for HKD$100 which is about £8! I remember the price so well because I'd thought 'what a great bargain'! It's such an easy dress to style up or down. This outfit is in between dressed up and casual, but I just wanted to keep it simple :)
Petite Outfit Ideas: New Look Black Heels + Necklace || Life as a Petite
I LOVE New Look shoes, I think they're always so nice and at a reasonable price! I think that every girl should have some black heels or nude heels, they just match with everything and give a timeless look to any outfit. I really wanted a pair of plain black court heels after buying my sister a pair, so I actually got these for my birthday a while back :)

This tiered triangle necklace is also from New Look and was again another bargain! It was on sale for £2.50! It was actually this necklace which got me into statement necklaces. They can jazz up/add so much more to a simple outfit.

Now this bag doesn't seem much, which to be frank it isn't, but I was unbelievably pleased to have snapped it up. It was on the more pricey side to what I would have liked to have paid (£20), but for its purpose I think it is a good investment. Whenever I wear heels, I have to bring flats with me. So, when I was finding clutches I wanted one that was big enough to fit shoes but not so enormous that I would be better off just carrying a handbag. I had been searching high and low but couldn't find one I was happy with. Until I walked into Forever21 without really thinking about it! This clutch can fit so so much in! I also really like how it has a detachable strap.

Unfortunately I don't think any of these items are being sold anymore, but I'll link the websites for similar items :)

Dress: H&M

Got to love a little bit of classical music when revising:p I love ballet - dancing it, watching it and listening to the music! This orchestra is fantastic! The conductor is so charismatic, engaging and just all round incredible. I just can't put in words how brilliant this orchestra is! 




As you can tell I had a little black and gold theme going on in this outfit:p 
What do you think of this little outfit? And what do you think are your wardrobe 'Must Haves'?

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week:D Take care and speak soon!

  8. Let me just say that I want every piece of this outfit haha. Actually I have a similar LBD (also a bargain from H&M) and black pumps already, but your necklace and clutch are gorgeous! Does the strap of that clutch removable? It does look a little more modern/edgy without the strap in the second picture:)

  54. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking
    at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point
    me in the direction of a good platform.
