How are we all? I'm really sorry for the lack of posts, the past couple of weeks have been so crazy but hopefully will calm down within the next week or two. Just thank you so much for being so understanding and patient :)
As the blog title says, this week I am channelling Rachel Zane. Those who have been reading my blog for a while might know how much I love this character! You only have to go back to last weeks post HERE to see :p For those who might not know, Rachel is a character played by Meghan Markle in the TV series Suits! I would highly recommend watching it, even if it's just for the fashion inspiration. I love Meghan's own style as well but there's just something about the character she plays! The outfits she wears just oozes class and sophisitication in a business context. I find it really difficult to buy work clothes not only because the sizing can be difficult for petites, but also I have to find something that does not make me look as though I had just raided my mum's wardrobe. Before, I wasn't really sure what kind of look I was going for, but now with a style icon I can get inspiration from I wanted to show you my latest outfit.
To be honest with you, this dress isn't anything that special, apart it not being at an extortionate price. This dress isn't of the material suit dresses are made out of, as it is a cotton/polyster kind of material. If any of you are interested in terms of guidance, I got this dress in a size XS/6 and it fits quite well!
I just think the black criss-cross detailing at the stomach area just helps accentuate or give an illusion of having a waist. Also as you may know, as I am a lover of all things neutral/pastel coloured, I thought I would go for a shade colour outside my usual choice. There was the choice of red (which I will link below) but I thought I wouldn't feel comfortable walking around a business area in a bright red dress. One thing I would say about the dress is that you might want to wear nude coloured underwear as otherwise you might be able to see it through the white material at the top.
At first glance my bag looks like a Prada Saffiano bag - oh how I wish haha, but actually it's just a one I got from ebay for about £20! I adore the shape of the Prada bags but they're just too expensive. Especially for a person like myself who ruins things really easily, getting such an item, or anything of the sort is just a massive nono. So I was so excited to have found a bag that had a similar shape!
This outfit gives me the perfect chance to wear my new heels! They just finish the look and add the extra bit of class. I could not not (sorry for the double negative haha) insert another picture of these beauties, they're just too gorgeous!!

Take care and speak soon.
