Last week I got to style a shoot using items from one of the best girl brands in the UK, Motel. I've followed Motel since I used to live in Bristol as a student. Motel used to have a super cute store at the bottom of Park Street which stocked a variety of vintage clothes including their own line of vintage inspired pieces. Motel has grown since 1999 and now is a go to for girls whether it's a cute day dress or a sparkly going out piece.
I've styled up four looks within this shoot featuring all pieces from Motel along with jewellery from Regal Rose and other brands thrown in.
The first look features Motel's Strappy Metallic Slip Dress. I have featured this dress in a previous post so when I got the ok to style up some outfits with Motel this was the first piece on my list. The metallic slip comes in a few different colours of pink, blue and purple. Metallics are coming back in time for our xmas parties and you can now pick up some stunning metallic chokers to team with your metallic dresses. On first glances this dress might look a bit garish but I loved the rock chick look it created when teaming with black accessories and black studded boots. The dress is super comfortable and the metallic fabric has a weight to it that makes this dress drop perfectly off your body making it extremely flattering.
I've teamed the dress with these stunning ankle boots by Jeffrey Campbell. I can't get enough of the Jeffrey Campbell collection at the moment and luckily ASOS have picked some gorgeous ones to add onto their site. Don't be fooled by their old Lita style which we all know they are extremely famous for, they really have some gems in their newest releases. The Next Level Chain Stud Boots have the metallic finishes and chain detailing that really adds to this rock chick look.
I've chosen one of Regal Rose's Wide Black Velvet chokers for this look. I wanted to go with something a little more simple as there is already a lot going on in this outfit.
Massive thanks to my good friend Stacey for being super good looking and my walking mannequin, Leo for being the eyes and brains behind the lens, Motel for supplying us with the most stunning clothing and Regal Rose for having the most perfect accessories. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them.
