Black dresses



Black is my most worn colour, and therefore it's fair to say that I have a few black dresses! Black tends to contrast well with my fair skin and goes with absolutely everything! I appreciate the simple design of this dress, it fits nicely and the length also adds elegance and that little bit of glamour. Black is brilliant because it is understated, it can be elegant, beautiful and sexy, black always looks great!

I want to take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this building is. This is Wollaton Hall, it is so picturesque! It has such a lovely park too and if you are lucky you will see the deers! Wollaton Hall is such a brilliant location for photographs, it's funny because my mum use to model here when she was younger, and I would sometimes visit here as a child.

I would like to introduce you to the genius behind the lens. These photographs are by Ashok Suren, a midlands based photographer. He does wonderful work, including beautiful wedding photography, good to know if you are getting married soon! You can check out his work below:

  2. Can't go wrong with a black dress! I love your pictures! You are right, your skin is a great contrast and Wollton Hall is a great backdrop.

  8. Your dress and shoes are gorgeous! Love them both, and they pair so nicely with the architecture of the building behind you. I love all the old buildings in Europe and I really want to visit sometime.

  14. Wow! The photos are so dramatic. I love the black dress against that kind of architecture. It gives a different feeling! And I agree that you look great in black. It complements your skin tone really well. I on the other hand rarely wear black. I just don't feel good about wearing black. And when I do, I make sure to add some fun colors. :)

  25. No wonder, you look stunning in black and that dress! I was told by a colour analysist that I cannot wear black. :( But sometimes I think it's just a matter of opinion! x
