When it comes to brands one of my absolute favourites in-world is PIXICAT. I’ve said before on these pages and I stand by it 100% the tops that Areve makes are second to none. I don’t like everything designed by the brand (like some of the more ‘out-there’ outfits and role-play items for example) but when it comes to fashion basics I’m at the front of the queue on new release day.
PIXICAT’s latest dress release is something to behold too, released at KUSTOM9 in an array of colours perfect for every taste and something I would be incredibly inclined to buy in a fat-pack if you can afford to. Alas, I can’t, so treated myself to the red version and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.
What I love about this frock, apart from the length and the cut-out on the sleeves (which shows off my tattoo beautifully) is the texture because it looks like a fine, jersey rib cotton. I have items made of that fabric in real life and it’s lovely and comfortable to wear, so I can really imagine how this dress would feel. I like that the belt perfectly cinches the waist too. I’m not a huge fan of belted dresses but this one is absolute perfection. It’s beautifully rendered, and I really like the tucks and creases in the fabric that add a great touch of authenticity to the look.
This dress would look fabulous with an up-do, but I chose to wear it with my hair long and loose, courtesy of my previously blogged MURRAY ‘Giorgia’ hairstyle. I kept accessories simple with just a bag as my embellishment, but what a bag! This outfit screams for a statement piece to really make it sing, and my choice is the fabulous ‘ Le Visage Purse’ by NYLON OUTFITTERS. By choosing the black and white design, I’m echoing the patent black of my belt.
Last but not least are my shoes; now of course I could have gone black for a totally formal look but I wanted a more casual twist, so to provide that I’ve added my super clunky PURE POISON ‘Boho’ heels. These are a real favourite of mine and I can dress them up or down with ease. The detail on the leather is really quite something too; they look heavy and the rivets and buckle are very realistic, plus the tone of these sandals is similar to the colour of my hair, so it gives the entire outfit a well-balanced feel. I love it, and I think this is a great look to start the week off in style.
