Inspired.

I was browsing The Facehunter's blog this morning, having a gander at the most recent street-style snaps, and came across an outfit that, without even thinking really, I saved to my folder of inspiring style photographs. The reason that I was on a sort of style-autopilot where this picture was concerned was because the outfit involved a bandeau dress, layered over a basic top. I don't know why, but I'm always drawn to this pairing, and after a flick through a couple of pages of the Facehunter archives I found a few more outfits like this that I really enjoyed.
Because of this I was inspired to give the look a go myself for a night out celebrating a friend's birthday last night, and I hope the result did justice to the others working it who have inspired me on blogs and streetstyle sites in the past!

I know at least one girl liked it, as I was approached outside a club by a lovely girl who merely said "You're outfit is great, so you deserve a lollipop!" and gave me a lolly! That made me smile =].

  4. That is a good look! I'm totally looking for a similar neckline in a dress, but something a bit plainer. I'm in to the look, but I know it's not me. It's a bit frustrating...
