As homage to my love of the swinging sixties I've styled the new Novem & Knight bardot mini dress with my super sleek thigh high boots, the softest vintage leather clutch, a comfy woolen camel coat, my classic ruby woo red lip and a few quirky rings to recreate a modern fresh day to evening look.
The Vintage Classic Beetle.
If you follow me on Instagram. (@floramariastyle) you may already be aware of my slight over obsession with the subtly classic STRIPE. I would if I could wear stripes everyday (like Where's Wally) but I'm a tad worried that I might be seen as a bit bonkers! (Where's Miss Stripe) 
The Stolen Treasure 
A 'borrowed' authentic vintage leather clutch from my mother years ago. Oh I do love it so x
How simple lines across a piece of fabric can be. Very pleasing on the eye and left feeling effortlessly chic when worn. I have a tendency to opt for a horizontal stripe rather than a vertical one although to be honest any stripe will do. (Stripe! Stripe! Stripe!)
These Boots Are Made For Walking 
These golden oldies (had them for years) make me feel fabulously fabulous. Sexy yet so snuggly and warm inside. The designers have kindly inserted a hidden inner platform which makes them surprisingly easy to walk in (especial after a few bevvies). Teaming these oldies with the right outfit is quite key as they are definitely a statement boot so anything else worn needs to be kept light, fresh and feminine to add a bit of sophistication.
If you haven't heard of Novem & Knight I would highly recommend you checking them out. They offer a swift delivery service (Arrived within 2 days) with no extra silly costs and this garment looks and feels even better than what I was expecting. From the slight flared hem finish to the cuff sleeve to the thick 100% organic cotton fabric, I honestly love wearing the bardot (I know it's just a dress but please see earlier posts for my dramatic fashion reasoning) and can see myself wearing this garment again and again enabling you to style in lot's of different exciting ways. The brand are fairly new and you know I'm all for supporting new funky independent designers. From looking at the entire line I not only would like it all please but there is clearly a feel of less is more fashion threading through each piece, which are mainly staple must haves.
