No guns involved, I promise - just fabulous footwear.

Last night was date night for myself and the man who's almost always behind the camera. With the weather being so glorious, I was unsure what to wear for our cocktail infused evening, but then I remembered my amazing pair of sale bargain heels from New Look. 

Naturally, due to the weather I took the opportunity to get my legs out and chose my new suedette fabric wrap dress. Trend Alert - I have a feeling this fabric combination is going to be huge in AW16. I've seen a few different high street stores creating pieces in this beautiful texture. I've already bought another from Topshop (soon to come on the blog). The suede effect is created through the fabric ratio if you're interested it's usually between 60/40% - 70/30% modal to polyester. For example, this particular wrap dress is 63% modal 37% polyester. 
But, be careful! This fabric may look and feel fab but it's a bit of a nightmare for snagging, so avoid jewellery and basically anything sharp. Having said that, the design is so perfect I didn't feel like I needed to add any jewellery, plus all my detail was in the statement heels. 

Onto the shoes, these heels were something I stumbled across when I was in store. I'm sure you would have seen the bloggers fave Mango strappy heels which are similar, see my post "Weather Woes" here to see them in nude. These New Look bargains are very similar but are a lot higher, perfect for a date. Most importantly, when I saw that they were down to £8 in the sale it would have been absurd to not buy them, wouldn't it!? 

I feel like these shoes are a glam only style so I kept that in mind when I accessorised. I added my furry little friend of a clutch bag and some oversized sunnies, sticking with a monochrome palette as there was enough going on with the look for me as it was. 


Wrap Dress - H&M trend £29.99 
Strappy Heels - New Look £8
Faux Fur Clutch Bag - H&M £7.99

I hope you enjoyed my bargain date night look
