One of my favourite ‘types’ of posts to write, Blog Reader (second only to Friday Lingerie Lust, naturally,) is my Little Black Dress series, where I focus on those eye-catchingly chic styles that have grabbed my attention in recent weeks. My own little black number here is a gem of a dress. I actually bought it a zillion years ago, in my last year of my undergraduate degree course when I had high hopes of attending the summer ball (in the end I spent the night in the local pub, a long story and several years swearing off men followed, ahem). Whatever the outcome of that evening (we don’t talk about it any more, Blog Reader) I certainly had a dress that would carry me through a good few years into the future – a favourite little black dress with a twist; ruched fabric sitting over a nude underslip with detachable straps.

Reiss SS13 dress favourites and finally, a new find, DSTM (Don’t Shoot The Messengers) whose wonderful creations deserve a blog feature of their own (coming soon!)
