Dress: Born In June
Boots: Shakuhachi
Watch: Swatch Watch
The first time I laid eyes on the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 collection I fell in love. It instantly had me in a geometric fantasy where I was transported to a giant chess board. Who doesn't love a good game of chess and a little 1960s shift? So together, they are a match made in heaven.

Unfortunately, a Louis Vuitton little shift dress is out of my budget and I have been searching for something similar since the day I saw the collection. Finally, my lovely little friend June, from "Born In June" boutique in Paddington made a similar shift. Hooray! This shift is made from a lovely, good quality satin and is lined beautifully. It is figure hugging but still shifty at the same time - no body cons for me!  
Do I even need to mention the awesomeness that oozes from my thigh high, neoprene, black, high heeled Shakuhachi boots. No, obviously they are the coolest things ever! They are a part of their Cruise collection so unfortunately won't be available for a while :( 

What makes it even better is it has a big silver zip all the way down the back which means it can be worn the correct way, or backwards (with the zip at the front - although I feel like I look a tad like a V8 girl) or as a jacket. Yippee for a versatile outfit!!!

I love June!
