* Back To Black *

Hello Lovelies!   
You'll all know by now that I absolutely love dresses! They probably make up 99% of my wardrobe as I find them so easy to throw on and create cute everyday outfits with. But I rarely have the chance to get properly 'dressed up' for formal events, so when I was contacted by the lovely Naomi from Ghost London and offered the chance to review a dress from their gorgeous collection, I felt very privileged! The clothing range instantly appealed to me, with its classic, vintage-inspired pieces and I chose this elegant, simple yet stylish, black 'Hatty' cocktail dress. I know it will last me for many, many years to come and I'm delighted to add it to my ever-growing dress collection - Thank you Ghost!  





(Black Dress - Ghost/ Shoes - New Look/ Accessories - Vintage)

I've worn and loved the Ghost perfume for years but have never been lucky enough to own a piece from their clothing range. Ghost have been producing collections since 1984, specialising in vintage designs made from durable fabrics which are easy to wear and flattering for all shapes. The brand has even gained a seal of approval from the one and only Grace Coddington, who described them as 'clothes that women like to wear'. Couldn't agree more with you Grace! 
I wanted to keep the overall look simple and chose minimal, vintage accessories: a shiny but subtle statement necklace and a very old embroidered evening clutch. This outfit is a little different from what I normally wear but I wanted to show you this classic number and make you aware of the Ghost clothing brand. I can't recommend them enough if you are looking for an elegant dress for any formal occasion. They also have a wonderful bridal range full of drool-worthy pieces, so with wedding season fast approaching, you know where to go! 
Have any of you worn Ghost London before?  
Let me know in the comments below! 
More soon,
Helen
