Outfit | IGIGI dress for Autumn

Hiya sweets,

This isn't the first time I've worn this dress, but because it has so many colours in it it's versatile and can be worn in a number of different ways. I chose to pick out the warmer tones today by teaming it with a burgundy boyfriend coat and some brown beaded earrings.

This dress was gifted to me previously (I wrote about it here) and because it has a lot of different colours in the design I can bring out different colours each time by pairing it with different accessories. I could've chosen to pick out the blue, pink, orange or red, but I decided to plump for burgundy/brown on this occasion. If you have a dress like this with lots of different colours in it the world is your oyster. It is undoubtedly an expensive dress at £100, but it's incredibly well made. It's a heavyweight dress and it's lined through the body so it's perfect for the colder weather. When I next wear it I might wear it with blue accessories to bring that out, and that'll be a quite winter appropriate look too - symbolising blue fingers from the cold, ahaha!
Apologies that these photos are slightly out of focus. I took about 3 sets of outfit photos over a few days before I realised the settings are off. Bugger! I usually use the DSLR for outfit shots indoors but I think I might start using the Sony I got for my birthday for indoor outfits as well as outdoor ones. I hope you can see enough of the detail today.

I'm wearing:

Igigi Penny dress in Crimson City
Earrings, market stall
Necklace, Jewel Street 
Leggings, Very - from a twin pack of one full length, one 3/4 length leggings
Shoes, past Everything 5 Pounds
Boyfriend coat, past season New Look Inspire

I love all kinds of 'ethnic' jewellery, including Native American dream catcher designs, but refuse to buy anything like that from Western sources as I don't believe white people should profit from cultural appropriation. (I've had a few dream catchers bought for me in the past but I won't buy anything myself unless I know the money is going directly to native people). I bought these earrings from a market stall in town on the bank holiday weekend. It was run by a man and woman who were non-white/native/indigenous-to-somewhere-else but I didn't want to be the douche to ask 'Where are you from?' They're beaded dream catcher earrings which are absolutely gorgeous.

I buy these leggings over and over again. Each pair lasts at least a year and they wash and wear so well. They don't fade at all. I'll be buying them for as long as they make them!

Thanks for reading.
