All Black Everything

I picked up this jumper dress in the Cos sale earlier this week and boy am I in love. I feel that as of late, I've found myself being drawn to more plain, classic pieces that won't go out of fashion and that are made to last, as apposed to splashing money on new things every week. When I tried this dress on in the shop, I was overwhelmed by just how beautiful it felt to wear. It was a good kind of heavy..does that make sense? It didn't cling to my post - Christmas bulge but didn't feel so loose that it was unflattering or boring. My mom says it looks like I'm wearing a sack... but she says a lot of things.
My necklace is another sale purchase but this time from Topshop, and on paper I love it, but.. I don't know.. I feel like maybe it looks a little bit ' whips & chains/dog collar' esque slightly concerning to say the least. Help/advice please?

If you want to see any of the other pieces that I picked up in the sales, then check out my haul video below! I'm sure you'll be seeing most of these in outfit posts in the future so it's also a bit of a sneak preview of what's to come!

  2. Personally, I love the choker! It's always good to try out new looks in the Topshop sale, they have such great jewellery. Altogether it's quite a gothic look, I like it a lot!

  10. amazing! The whole outfit is gorgeous. Great staples/pieces even on its own. I am a new reader and loving it already. Your images are so crisp and clear, very professional. I have also been into the all black everything look. If not, I'll probably (9/10) be in something neutral.
