OUTFIT OF THE DAY: Hot Pink & Black Lace Print Chinyere

I've mentioned before my adoration of the Chinyere brand, it's always been one of my favourites because their designs are affordable yet chic. This outfit is my latest addition to my collection, it was bought on a whim from Bareeze in Green Street, but I'm glad I bought it because I got to use it so quickly!

I wore this outfit to a dholki (a pre-wedding event, which I'm sure many of you have been to!) a couple of days ago - it's a very light, chiffon dress-style kameez with simple black trousers and a slip (I've noticed a lot of Chinyere ready made outfits come with matching slips, which I quite like!) - in fact the only embellishment on this outfit was some very small amount of lace detailing on the duppatta and the sequin motif design on the front of the dress - the rest of it is print work which looks like lace.
This is the outfit and what I accessorised it with:

I decided to pair it with some simple black heels and a black sparkly cuff, mainly because  the dholki took place after work so I was too tired to go overboard with jewellery, and partly because I wanted a semi-casual look. I've worn these shoes plenty of times before, but I love the hot pink detailing at the bottom which I thought went nicely with the outfit!

And here's me wearing it, you can't see but I decided to wear a really bright, neon pink lipstick and a simple hairstyle which was a loose up-do. I think this went nicely with the look I was going for, and it was certainly more comfortable (I also added some small Accessorize earrings last-minute, I've forgotten to take pictures of those though!)

I loved wearing this outfit, it felt very floating and pretty, and it's perfect for the warm weather - I can certainly see myself getting wear out of it this summer because it's not too dressy so can be worn without a lot of fuss. I don't often wear bright pink like this, but I think the black in this outfit tones it down and because it's not very blingy, I was quite happy with it). While Chinyere outfits aren't super-cheap like some unbranded outfits, I still find their ready-made pret, particularly their semi-formals and casual outfits quite reasonable - I definitely think the quality of it makes it good value, particularly with the rising prices in the high street these days!

I'm keeping an eye outfit in the store on online for more Chinyere pieces, because I love their stuff - do you have any Chinyere designs? What do you think of the brand?
