The Shoe Girl Styles It: Vivienne Westwood Gillie

Vivienne Westwood Gillie
Hello sweets, hope you're enjoying the weekend. Today I'm styling these Vivienne Westwood Red Label 'Gillie' lace-ups £374 (free next day delivery (over £75) with code TMRW or 15% off for new customers with NEWCOG). You can't really see in this picture so well, but the laces are long enough to be wrapped up the leg or around the ankle several times (they've just tied them under the shoe here). Whenever I saw that metallic panel I just knew of the perfect dress to pair them with. It's from Monsoon and I've been patiently waiting to use it after seeing it in an email. It's an absolute stunner and a little more pricey than regular high-street prices (hence why I've included it in my 'luxe' edition), though it could pass for being twice or three times the price.  That structured shape is just so beautiful and the brocade fabric the perfect choice for such a dress.  I wouldn't over-accessorise (for once!) with jewellery, instead keeping that statement neckline simple, just adding a big pair of earrings and/or some rings.  Some might think the shoes aren't 'formal' or 'dressy' enough for this, but I wanted something a little 'heavier' that wouldn't be overshadowed by the bold dress.  Does this get the thumbs up from you?

  1. I love the dress and I love that bag (it has been in my asos saved list for ages, I'll never buy it - too expensive - but it is amazing) :)

    1. Same here, I just can't bring myself to buy it at that price because I wouldn't use it enough.

    1. Shoes are quite old Granny-ish, in a way but I like them! Dress is just stunning.
