Take 10 | Asos LBD for Company Magazine

Psynopsis Asos Dress White H&M Shirt
#17 is about the LBD and… Take 10's first print feature. Yeap, we are in the December issue of Company – which I think is pretty exciting; although when I read my little blurb I was slightly confused… 'rockier vibe'?! Have I really said this or am I leaking brain cells? No, turns out our texts were gently adapted. Believe me, I would NOT say things like this. I'd rather stutter along these lines:

The dress has a nice angular neckline and is pretty short, aka sexy (yeap, stating the obvious).
When I first saw it I had a fleeting vision of sexy nuns (blame my catholic upbringing).
Nuns = black & white.
Tattoos seemed obligatory.
Result.

We've got to talk tattoos. Urgently. I don't know how much longer I can fend off the pull of the ink parlour.

Really? I cannot believe they said you said "rocker vibe." What? Are you ten? Haha! But I loved how you layered in it. Perfectly done!

Very individual and so nicely layered and styled, too. XX

PinkBow said...

Fashionistable said...

This is an exciting move forward for your take 10 indeed. I love how you have styled this dress. It looks great with your white base. Xxxx

Sherin said...

Love how you added white to go with the black dress!!

Harriet said...

I absolutely love the fake tattoos! I definitely have an attraction to tattoos, but I'm a bit too scared to get one...

Really like the combintion of black and white - very cool, and not too nun like!

Veshoevius said...

Love how you've styled it!

The Foolish Aesthete said...

Well, I must say this has the rocky vibe of a rebellious Amish girl. ;-) (I'm still doubled over thinking of leaking brain cells.) I do LOVE how you styled it, down to the star tattoos peeking out of your booties! And congratulations on your feature in Company, even if they did misquote you. You look great! xx

A Certain Vintage said...

You have a unique style which is more than rocker-style chic. Still the feature is a great thing to read and keep, no?

That is so amazing! And rightfully deserved. Loving this look with the socks, too!

well done, you should be really proud of this feature

polka dot said...

LOVE the way you styled this! I was just editing shots from fashion week and your styling is so sophisticated: your use of layering, I just love the way you think outside the box.

And your reference, naughty nun: perfect. And I love those socks (I have a favourite pair just like that which I can't find).. hang on, you DIY's the socks with wrist bands?? You're like a style genius. The shoes are great with it.. I just love this whole look. And well done to you all about being in Company!! Is it the current issue? I want to get one.

The first thing my eye went to btw was the tattoo: I thought it was real. Are you really going to get one?

Hope all's going well. xoxo

Cindy Whitehead said...

Looking rad as always. And yes, lets talk tattoos... (-:

Nnenna said...
