OOTD: Live Unlimited Drop Hem Dress

Sometimes you just need to go to East London, sit in a pop up restaurant and eat an overpriced burrito (that whole sentence makes me feel ill: West London massive, yo!) Anyway, I'm ashamed to say that's exactly what I did yesterday despite still being a sick pup. My week has been something along the lines of: *cough*....*blow nose*....*cough some more*....*lemsip*....*prolonged coughing fit until I keel over* Still, I needed some fresh air and so off we headed for a day of wandering.

Now, I only bought this last week, but it's already unavailable from the store I bought it from (Wallis). However, Live Unlimited is available in a few places so check online!

 I'm a big fan of the classic black look; big boots and leather jacket. I do tend to steer clear of oversized tops though, so this was something new for me.


 
 
The material in the body is so SO soft and silky while the arms are made of stretch jersey. This is good for someone like me who has disproportionately large arms and means I didn't need to size up. It's sheer at the back, but there's an in-built cami to prevent any unwanted flashing.

I'm usually not a fan of a drop hem, but this is obviously an exception. It fell to my calves at the back and I'm 5'5" so it might not work for shorties of the world (unless you work it as a train?)

Today I popped this on with boots, leggings and a chain to keep it casual, but I can see myself wearing tights, heels and a statement necklace on a night out. It's such a versatile piece and I can see it becoming a trusty favourite.
