Lost Ink at House of Fraser

Lost Ink Burgundy Shirt Dress at House of FraserI'll be honest with you, I'm one of those people who throw themselves head first into every season.  The very beginning of this month saw me stock up on multi-wick candles and save DIY Halloween posts to my favourites, and so you can pretty much guess my stance on Christmas.  You did notice I visited Käthe Wohlfahrt's Christmas shop while in Bruges, right?  So, to go hand-in-hand with the A/W collections causing a stir right now, I'm grouping the two seasons together and beginning preparations.  Personally speaking, this means continuing my obscene collection of candles, becoming reacquainted with open fires after long, chilly walks and most excitingly of all, starting to build on that Autumn-Winter wardrobe!

Lost Ink Burgundy Party Dress 2016
Entering this gorgeous new season, the usual culprits are on my radar such as ankle boots and an abundance of velvet and suede. However, to my delight, this time around they seem to be delivered with a twist.  Ankle boots are embroidered, jewel-coloured suede jackets are combined with shearling, and there seems no end to the ways of adding velvet to your body - no complaints here! However, the element of A/W styling that seems to get us all, ahem, hot under the collar, is the warmer, darker colour palette; such as khaki, oxblood, cinnamon, and of course black.    

Needless to say, I've got a bit of a 'thing' for burgundy at the moment.

Let me in!
This (true to size) short-sleeved shirt dress has been a very welcome addition to my new season wardrobe, particularly as its versatility allows for both cold and humid days alike.  I can even see it working well towards the end of the year once the party season gets underway, worn with a cropped faux fur jacket and knee-high boots.  For now though, I took the opportunity to finally take these Karen Millen beauties out of their box having bought them earlier in the year.  Impulse buy?  Probably, but I couldn't resist the fur-trims!

Another thing I'm finding hard to resist right now is Lost Ink, the label behind this dress and now - thanks to House of Fraser - my current obsession.  With a philosophy of 'affordable chic', London based Lost Ink has pretty much stolen my heart with their strong and feminine designs; think bow-neck knitwear, furry biker jackets and the most irresistible shoe range (check out these gorgeous pom pom ankle boots!)

  2. You know I'm not the biggest fan of dresses but gosh, that dress is gorgeous on you, Gabrielle. I love everything about it, the colour, the cutting and the shape of it and that pair of heels is perfection too.

  3. This color is STUNNING on you! I adore these rich fall shades and have been so excited to see autumn trends starting to crop up everywhere (even though we appear to be still firmly set in summer in Los Angeles). Velvet is definitely up there as a favorite trend this year. I wouldn't have been able to resist those shoes either!

  4. This is flawless, hands down. That color is stunning on you, both the dress and shoes are lovely (sometimes impulse purchases are the best), and the photos are breathtaking! You've conquered this!

  12. Gabrielle, you look stunning! I've been seeing heels like that around for a while (largely because of Scream Queens, really) and have been wondering how people would wear shoes like that in real life, and gah, you absolutely pull it off. I love it!

  19. Burgundy certainly suits you...it may be that it is your colour! or shade to be more precise. I do love this dress, its design and fit is fabulous. The way you paired it with those heels is ingenious. Such a great transitional look! You look gorgeous.

    Perfect location and photography...love all those details...so lovely!!!

    I usually look forward to every season but at the same time I might feel a bit nostalgic. It is not that I want the Summer to last forever, but I want it to linger just a little bit...and according to weather forecast, it will do just that...so no complains here:).

  20. Such a pretty look! Burgundy is one of my favorite cold weather shades! There's something about it that reminds me of cold weather and fire places... weird I know. This shirt dress is so lovely on you and the heels are just something else. They're absolutely fab!

  21. My favorite part of the season? The change in makeup. Which is, to be honest, my favorite part of every season. After having said that, I have to marvel your heels. They are so pretty, so delicate and feminine and the cute fur trimming... Not that I´d think I´d get much use out of them, they don't seem to be made for chasing toddlers around the playground.

  50. The wine colour of this dress is stunning, one that I truly adore. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons, so I welcome it with opened arms. From the falling leaves to the crisp morning air, at least in a few weeks (one can hope it will arrive quickly). Wish you a wonderful weekend, Gabrielle. <3 xx/Madison

  52. Burgundy is one of the colours I reach a lot as soon as we enter A&W, it is just a classy colour of these seasons and it never gets old. Colour, style... everything about this dress is beautiful. Gosh, it is not expensive! Also how adorable your burgundy shoes look, I love the fur details on it, it makes it even prettier :) x
