I sometimes I fall into the 'black trousers' syndrome, which is by no means a bad thing at all. But I do have to be honest: I dont feel great in them as wearing too much black tends to make me feel a little, well, miserable. Aside from the standard black trousers, I still find myself going back to my one fail-safe piece of clothing: meet my Baukjen dress.
I used to hear people talk about a 'fail safe' item but never realised I had my own until I put on my Baukjen dress again today. My Baukjen dress is pretty much like my left hand, it is that one dress that I simply cant get enough of. I've had this dress for over a year now and can safely say this dress is worn at least once a week. Now before you all think I'm dead boring, stop. This dress is so darn versatile.
I can wear with flats or heels, bare legs or tights, with a neck scarf or statement necklace, with a long line cardigan or loose fit blazer - the list is endless.
Non black, but bright blue, my favourite combination? wearing with tan accessories, especially with my leopard print kitten heels - this dress makes me feel safe yet still attractive. The fabric holds me in nicely (just what I need) but is comfortable. I cant get away from this dress - it's perfect.
I truly believe that the reason why I love this dress so much is down to Baukjen as a brand - I pretty much adore every darn collection that comes out and for me, the look and styling of their dresses is how I'd just love to look. Don't get me wrong, the clothes are not in my budget, even more so now I'm trying to save for the wedding, but I do adore my only Baukjen dress, and until I manage to win the lottery/or had the wedding I will just have to make do with oggling their website instead, I mean check out these to 'die-for' ideal for Spring,dresses:
