I had to take a little hiatus from StyleOnTheCouch last week, Blog Reader, as both moving and starting a new job required my full attention…. When I return after a break I tend to choose things to write about that I love and I’m familiar with, hence another in my series of ‘Little Black Dress’ posts.

Nasty Gal aren’t a brand I look at often.  They have such a colourful, cheery and youthful West-Coast style I can admire but that doesn’t work for me.  I’m waaayy too Vampiric-ly pale for that (darn it).  This little black number from the Nasty Gal Fall 2012 collection however, I make an exception for.  The neckline did it for me, the ‘peaked’ front style and the bodice detailing on the back of the dress won me over. I wore it to countless parties and drinks events over the Christmas and New Year holidays – it looks great with my Helmut Lang leather jacket and my new metallic clutch from Kzeniya.

Current Nasty Gal favourites:

Jet Romper

Kick Push Dress

Harness Bodysuit

I should also start a campaign to get them to restock this stunning little black number (as seen here on The Londoner) that I had on my wish list for ages…

    Lydia really did he a way of bringing out your natural beauty and letting it shine – these photographs are just gorgeous. And I love the cut of this dress; I rarely look at Nasty Gal myself, for similar reasons… although I love the vibe of their collections, it simply isn’t a vibe that works on dark haired, fair skinned girls… but this dress was certainly worth making an exception for; the cut of the corset is almost vampire-esque, in a wonderfully sophisticated way, and the back detail is exquisite.

    Have a great weekend.

    Its the length that makes this one an absolute favourite with me -all class! This dress says to me “I’m just going to pretend I’m blending into the crowd but who am I really kidding?” :)

    Such a gorgeous dress (and model too). I was a bit hesitant about Nasty Gal since I really didn’t know what this place was all about until my friend Lani of Real Life Style wrote about it and now I am hooked.

    Oh my! I looooove this dress, the details are just so perfect. I love it on you ( please please can I borrow your figure for one day….and the dress ; ) )
    Also like the backdrop on the photography too, that stark black and white wall is the perfect backdrop to the dress ( and your ) gorgeousness.

    Also hope the new job started well?
    And we have snow for u, in March! Welcome home ; D
