Fashion Boundary October Round-Up
Each month we round up our favourite pieces. For October we’re heading into Spring Carnival season so we wanted to put together a fun, reliable outfit full of staples for your wardrobe to be worn for years to come. Read more below for details.
Our statement dress for this month is the Ruffled Irregular Black Plaid Dress by Square Circle. This is a knee-length dress crafted from black and white gingham cotton. It has a high crew neck, large puffy sleeves and the single oversized ruffle sitting diagonally across both front and back of the dress. We love the simple cut of this dress juxtaposed against its statement features.
This dress could be easily dressed up or down depending on shoe choice. Pair with white sneakers for a toned down look or heeled black boots for a more dressed up outfit. We also love that this dress is 100% cotton, which makes it easy to care for and is breathable and allows you to stay cool on those really warm days coming up. Shop the Plaid Dress here.
To pair with this amazing dress, we wanted some awesome jewellery. We chose to go with gold with the Yoster Chain No.2 Earring in 24K Gold Plated Sterling Silver. This is a pair of chain stud earrings. They feature five chain links in the signature Yoster irregular, beaten design. We love the beaten nature of the metal gives them a raw, unique feel which separates them from other chain earrings from other brands. Shop here.
To continue the gold theme, we added the She Necklace in 24K Gold Plated Sterling Silver also by Yoster. This is a large pendant necklace on a small long chain. The pendant features multiple frames with 'The basis for the whole universe' framed in the centre. We love the femininity of this design. It shines of female power and strength. We love the size of this necklace which is slightly larger than the massage necklaces from Yoster. This piece will add a little sparkle and strength to any outfit. Shop here.
We absolutely HAD to include this Clutch by Mädi designed by Jennifer Berger. It’s the perfect size a day bag as it holds all the essentials whilst also looking different and chic. Crafted from black coloured calfskin. It has a removable shoulder strap and sophisticated details, this is an essential accessory to complete your evening outfit. Its gold-plated buckle adds a refined touch to the bag, which also pairs well with the Yoster pieces.
We love this clutch, for its flared wings on each side and gold hardware detailing. If you're looking for a black clutch but after something more interesting this is the one to pick.The shape of the clutch is inspired by vintage swiss army bags. They are still appreciated by collectors for their classic simplicity and functionality. Every aspect bag's design pays homage to its Swiss heritage. The cog-wheel shaped buckle on the front of the bag is drawn from the Swiss watch industry. Shop this clutch here.
Finally, the shoes. For a little extra shine we wanted to throw these Alpha Oxford Shoes by Ballūta designed by Catarina Pedroso. These are a pair of silver brogues crafted from vegan leather. The pointy toe and the additional graphite toned rivets add a masculine, punk feel. They are set on a chunky wooden 0.78 inch heels. We love the fact that these shoes are vegan. The graphite toned rivets on the Alpha Oxford's make these shoes one-of-a-kind. We would pair these with simple, neutral colours, to allow them to stand out. They are an interesting addition to your shoe collection.
