The Gisti Dress at Fashion L'amour

Girls, have you ever looked inside your wardrobe and thought “wow, I own so much black!” or have lots of the same shade or colour. Yet somehow you still find it difficult to find that perfect multipurpose little black dress for all occasions… well, fear not, I have the perfect dress for you!
The ‘Gitsi Dress in Scatter Rose’ by Motel Rocks is a unique and edgy take on the classic LBD, however, it offers a subtle yet effective dash of colour to slowly introduce your style and wardrobe to contrasting colours and patterns, making you stand out from the rest. Its detailed (and small) rose print pattern is the perfect touch for those who want to brave a bit of colour to their outfit without going overboard. It’s a fun and flirty dress made from 100% Viscose making it feel super light when worn and perfect for holidays if you want to pack light. It can be worn in all seasons if accessorised correctly. Sprinkle your sweetness and get hearts fluttering. The scattered rose is taking florals to the next level and leaves the Gisti dress both sexy and sweet. This cutie also features a sweetheart neckline with a capped sleeves and wrap detail skirt. Complete with tights, a denim or leather jacket and a Chelsea boot (or even Vans/Converses) for trans seasonal styling, or a casual ‘dressed down’ look. It’s the perfect outfit for date nights or even Valentine’s Day with its romantic red rose print – making it tie in nicely with the seasonal theme. So, get your pins out and crack out some cute and sexy red or black heels! This dress is the one to make you feel confident and proud to be a woman in any social setting.

I chose to dress mine up for an evening event at the ‘Fashion L’amour’ magazine launch party at ‘Lover studios’ in Shoreditch.  It was ideal for that specific London setting:  edgy vibe with elements of vintage chic styling and people just looking generally fierce and standing out from the rest. My dress is an XS and I found the sizing guide on the Motel website was easy and simple to follow and my dress fits me perfectly and comfortably. I wanted to make my Gisti dress a statement piece that night so I chose to pair my outfit with some black thigh high platform boots from ‘LAMODA’ and accessorised with some feisty 90’s inspired micro red tinted shades from ‘Hot Miami Shades’. (You can get 20% off on any purchase on site if you choose to use my code ‘AISHAN20’ at the checkout on ). I chose to wear red sunglasses as they matched so nicely with the red rose details on the black dress. I would say my overall look was “90’s vintage grunge girl meets sexy French chic”. The overall outfit combination was a success and people loved the look, it’s amazing what a little detailing and colour can do to make a little black dress pop.

A little bit about Motel Rocks (in their words):
“Born from a love of vintage fashion, Motel is the must-have label for girls who want unique, edgy and eclectic additions to their wardrobe that are guaranteed to make an impact! Established in the late 90s, Motel was created after the brand founders set out on a road trip of freedom, discovery and fun across the west coast of America. Inspired by the indie vintage shops and various thrift stores dotted along the Californian coastline, the Motel designers set about bringing these looks to the British consumer and carved a unique niche in the marketplace. Fifteen years later and Motel is now a leading Brit fashion label renowned for offering unique prints, form-fitting silhouettes and trend-setting styles that are loved by fashionistas, style icons and celebrities around the globe.”
