A Black Dress For Every Occasion

Having recently moved to a new city, I allotted myself one suitcase which meant I really had to edit down my fall wardrobe. So what made the cut? Anything that was timeless and versatile – with the exception of a few showstopping shoes.

This black dress is the newest addition to my closet and my favourite piece of clothing right now. It’s perfect for work, date night and when you’re in the mood for frolicking through the stairwells of a grand hotel. (S/o to St Pancras Renaissance Hotel for letting us shoot without any trouble.)

For this look, I brought out my gingham print Sam Edelman heels, which not only look great, but are super comfortable. Case in point: I ran up and down these stairs multiple times to get the perfect shot and had no pain whatsoever.

Aside from loitering through hotels, this look can easily be taken from day to night by simply swapping shoes, throwing on a pair of earrings and a cute clutch.
