I've never really been a big one of shopping in M&S!
Presents for the 'rents? Tick
Party dress for me? Erm...maybe not.
I knew M&S had really pulled their fingers out in the last few years, upping the ante, and trying to target a younger generation, and I must admit I think they've been doing well. But it's only really been this year that I've actually sat up and taken note. It helps that this years Christmas advert has to the best advert...ever (eat your heart out John Lewis!), but M&S really have hit the nail on the end, who doesn't want that cream dress after seeing Rosie HW prancing about in the snow in it?
Their new AW13 range has embraced this Season's trends, and all my favourites...lace, tartan, leather to name a few. So when I was asked if I wanted to review one of their new pieces and showcase how I will be wearing it, I was very willing to accept the challenge.
After much deliberation, and I mean much, I settled on a simple black lace dress, knowing that I'd be able to wear it over and over again, it's already front runner for Christmas Day!
I always think lace generally speaks for itself, it's best not to over-style it but I knew I wanted to add a slightly rockier edge. So by adding the chunky buckle boots (my new, most favourite things ever!) and a plum lip, keeps the look in line with my own style, but still fully embracing the lace trend.
