Powder Beige

Dress – 2ND DAY by Day Birger et Mikklesen C/O Boozt    Bag – Mulberry Bayswater C/O Victoria    Shoes – Melody    Cuffs (worn as Ankle Cuffs) – H&M    Necklace & Rings – H&M    Coat – Vintage Faux Fur

There’s so much nude going on in this post I feel NEKED!
I really couldn’t believe my luck when the ever so helpful Rob from Boozt.com contacted me asking me to pick something from their website to review, as the first brand I looked at was the sister brand of Day Birger et Mikklesen, 2nd Day. It had a sort of luxe All Saints feel to it which I really fell for as sometimes I feel too much All Saints can cause you to actually end up looking like your homeless, I mean not that that’s a bad thing, some people like that kinda thing no? Shall I stop diggin’ now? Aaaanywhooo…
The dress is 100% silk which felt absolutely incredible against my skin, but also filled me with dread as I know what I’m like and it certainly isn’t careful. However I did wear this on my Journey back to the Shire and it survived so maybe I should cut myself some slack.
I really have a lot of love for sister brands as they bring our favourite elements of our favourite brands, to (just about) within the reaches of us “highstreeters” and I really think Boozt should think about following that idea a bit more as I saw a lot of jersey basics which astounded me a little as this incredible brand was plonked alongside it all.
But I really do owe Rob a massive kiss and a cuddle for introducing me to this dress (and 2nd Day) as not only is it undoubtedly beautiful, but so elegantly made. Oh and it looks like they’ve just had a new drop so check it out HERE I mean JUST LOOK AT THE JEWELLERY!

    You wore that to go home in??? WTF??? It’s not exactly a day dress!

    • Lydia Elise Millen 27th February 2012 / 6:09 pm

      Who said I went home in the day time? but I teamed it with a leather jacket and harley davidson biker boots to travel!

      It’s gorg, but still looks like something u’d wear to an awards ceremony, rather than just on an average evening!

    I need some ankle cuffs in my life asap. I am also so incredibly jelous of your hair I want to cut if off and glue it to my head…… but I wont dont worry xxx

    • Lydia Elise Millen 27th February 2012 / 6:24 pm

      The “ankle cuffs” are from H&M £3.99 each!
      In order for your hair to grow, STOP GETTING IT CUT and look after it, i.e. LOTS of conditioner, leave in conditioner, serum and heat protector, Don’t wash it too often.
      6 years ago I shaved the sides of my head (long before Alice Dellal there fore it wasnt cool), and when I realised what I had done I had not choice but to grow it back and I did not step foot in a hair dresser for 5 of those years! 🙂 x

      I have already been using all of the Aussie goods like you suggested before so hope that will help eventually but my hair breaks and splits so easy so I do have to get it cut, maybe I will do it less often. Cheers for your advice girrrl. x

    Wow, you look beyond amazing! I mean breathtakingly amazing!
    I have been a huge fan of Day Birger et Mikkelsen for a few years now, but it doesn’t often fit into my college girl budget.

  14. Ginger 28th April 2012 / 5:44 pm

    This is an absolutely beautiful look! Love the asymmetric cut of the dress!

    I was looking at that style of necklace today in Topshop and couldn’t visualise how it would sit. Now I’ve decided…

    I need one in my life!
