Nine West x Pose Style Challenge Wk 4 (Black Peplum Dress)

In this week’s Nine West x Pose challenge I’m getting back to a style I know well.  This black dress is from Zara, a lovely fitted shape with a broken peplum ruffle around the waistline.  There is something undeniably flirty about this kind of design – great for all shapes, the peplum frill will cinch in your waist and produce some ladylike flair in a matter of seconds.

The MsFabulous caged sandals are this week accompanied with a little metallic; a gold bag and bracelet along with some vibrant red nails.  Black, blood red, shiny gold and roccia-inspired print makes week four.  My pictures are up on the Nine West page of Pose if you want to vote by ‘loving’ the style – this action automatically enters you into a competition to win a pair of these sandals.

I’m in Austin until Sunday so this Friday’s lingerie feature will be a guest post by a friend of mine who I consider somewhat of an expert in gorgeous underthings.  She has a real treat for you this week!

A Grand and Splendid Adventure…

I spent two days in the Grand Canyon on my recent travels and as expected was blown away by the views from the South Rim. Nothing prepares you for the vastness and beauty of the chasm – it’s 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and one mile (1.6km) deep.

I spent two nights at Yavapi Lodge in Grand Canyon Village, the hub that connects you with the shuttle buses that take you to key view points around the South Rim.  The best views can be found along Hermits Rest Road, with Hopi and Powell Point being my favourites at sunset.  When the sun fades, the colour of the Canyon changes dramatically, with the shadows contrasting with the warm red and golds of the light

The sunset walk between Powell Point at the Village was well paved and fairly effortless to trek around.  Lucky since I wanted to wear another of my favourite casual and throw on dresses that evening, a grey dress from Splendid which is both uber fitted and uber comfortable. I could live in this dress, I tell you.

On my wrist is the Savoy bracelet from JewelMint. I don’t usually accessorize much but I make an exception for this – I love the style and how snug it sits on my wrist.

Breathtaking.
