Basicially, I think this outfit is the thing I had in mind when I was first shown the preview pictures of these shoes. Because they are so fierce, I really loved the idea of teaming them with something floral and feminine. And then I promptly parked that idea because I couldn't think of anything which quite fitted the bill.

So, when this dress arrived from Chicwish, I decided it was high time to dig out my dinosaur heels for their first outing. I wore this combination to a party at the weekend. I found the shoes got a lot of comments (not many good, but that doesn't bother me as I really like them) and discovered that it's quite tricky to walk in them without catching the inner dinosaur arms on each other. I'm going to have to be careful with these in the future as I don't want to do any damage to the arms.

As for the dress? Well, it was my first item from Chicwish - a site which I've seen mentioned on other blogs. The quality isn't bad for one of *those* cheap overseas sites, and the measurements provided on the website were pretty accurate, which is always a pleasant surprise. The fabric has a kind of satin feel to it, and is nice and thick so it's got a decent quality feel to it, and it seems well made. Overall, although it wasn't my first choice of item, I'm quite impressed.

Ever shopped with Chicwish before? And how would you style up these heels?

  4. I'd go with cropped jeans and a black t-shirt, and (if I had one) a sequin jacket. But I also love how you've styled this too.
