OOTD: Richard Nicoll Dress

Hi everyone. I finally managed to find time to prepare an outfit post again. Yay! It is always a struggle for me, because when my camera is on a self timer, I am not in control and it irritates me :) It doesn't really focus properly on the outfits and as you can see on the photo above, my moving hand is blurry etc :) haha. Anyway... I hope you like it. 
This outfit features a beautiful Richard Nicoll for Trop50 Dress* I received recently and it is a special one.

To celebrate the launch of Trop50, juice experts Tropicana and iconic fashion designer Richard Nicoll have joined forces to release a limited edition dress. All profits raised from the sales of the dresses will be donated to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer; the leading charity fashion campaign by Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Just 50 Richard Nicoll for Trop50 dresses have been created to celebrate the launch of the new Trop50 juice drink, which has 50% less sugar and calories than regular juice. 

I couldn't resist accepting this gorgeous dress to feature on my blog and I am in love with it.
I had to customize the sleeves though, because they were to tight. The dress is oversized, so it is a perfect fit everywhere, except the cuffs. I never have an issue with customizing clothes, it is quick and easy and I can enjoy the garment and feel comfortable in it.

I am wearing the dress with a cream cardigan, black tights and black ballerina pumps.
I also added a statement necklace (ebay) and a studded orange bracelet (Hermes lookalike)

I absolutely adore the print on the dress and the way it looks on me. It is a massive square, so I am wearing a brown belt to add shape and accentuate my non existing waist line :) 

Oh, and the colours are beautiful and vibrant - a combination of pink, cream and orange.

I already know that this dress will be a statement piece in my wardrobe and I will wear it all the time. It is comfortable, beautiful and unique!
