Have you ever spent ages looking for just the right dress or top only to discover it unexpectedly? I had been looking for a new off the shoulder dress for awhile and I just wasn’t happy with what I had been seeing. I knew I needed to expand my scope from my usual list of go-to sites so I decided to check out Amazon Australia. I’ve obviously bought things like books and electronic gadgets from there before but I hadn’t ever really checked out their fashion range. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. They’ve got a great edit of well known labels along with smaller brands, so the selection was just a little bit different from the styles I had stumbled across.
This was a great lesson in making an effort to expand your usual shopping haunts as I ended up finding the below dusty pink dress. It ticked all the boxes for me: it had the off the shoulder silhouette I was after, statement sleeves and the on-trend tie detail I had in mind. The shade was also just the right pink hue as I wanted something feminine but not too girly.
With such a standout dress I wanted to keep my accessories quite simple. I stuck to a minimalist approach and just kept to sunglasses and a simple clutch. The look and feel of my clutch tapped into the trend towards native-style bags which I felt worked really well with dress. My round frame sunglasses on the other hand were able to add a statement element to my overall look without being overwhelming.
