A little Coco, a little Alexa, a lot of Anna

A simple black dress always makes me think of Coco Chanel. One my favourite style icons and designers, I consider anything Chanel an ultimate style statement.
Alexa Chung has never set the trends for me personally but I can’t argue that she influenced millions of other fashionistas. The combination of this little dress and the round sunglasses inevitably reminds me of her and so, I am happy to give her credit for this.

All in all, there’s an awful lot of me in this outfit too. The playfulness of a very girlie dress, the heaviness of platform heels and the cheekiness of the round glasses make this an outfit I know I will have fun wearing. I struggled with accessories a little since for me, they make an outfit and I didn’t want to end up bare (accessories-wise, I always planned to wear the dress). I finished the outfit off with some bracelets, cocktail ring and a totally not-matching bag but I’m ok with it. I could have gone for a satchel or a set of pearls but then it’s not about Alexa or Coco, this is me here ๐Ÿ™‚
