blogger style challenge: neon

 
dress: ASOS via Style Compare*
necklace: eBay
sunglasses: H&M
nails: Models Own Hedonist

When I was asked if I'd like to take part in this month's Style Compare blogger style challenge, I was a little unsure when I was told the theme would be neon! The aim's in the name though, and I thought it would be fun to play around with a really bright piece to shake up my usual wardrobe of a black bottom half and some kind of printed shirt.

I chose this gorgeous dress from ASOS and was worried it might swamp me as I always find their sizing quite generous. In retrospect I think it looks really nice and doesn't drown me too much at all! It does work really well with a thin black belt too though (you can see me wearing it here), and personally I just wear it with my studded leather jacket so the colour can do its business - for want of a better phrase. When I first got it I thought a simple french manicure would be the perfect pairing for the dress but as this is a challenge I decided to go all out and neon my nails up too! I really love the finished look and threw in some gold accents to give it a luxe feel.

The actual challenge is to get the most votes, I'm up against some serious competition so not expecting to win but it would be lovely for you to show some support if you're a fan of my getup! Please vote HERE if you feel so inclined, and see the other bloggers doing this month's challenge. If I win I'll get a voucher for myself and also for one of you!

  13. Love it! I think when you hear the word neon you automatically think of disgusting vivid colours however I love that you've reinvented it as such...a lot softer than I would have imagined! Well done lovely!
