(Brian Lichtenberg Dress, Samantha Wills Bangle, Thrifted Heels, Asos clutch)

It's safe to say I haven't worn a one shoulder number since I was at a school disco in year 7. The craziest part is it was an off the shoulder top that was bright blue and covered in glitter, just like the dress you see here but on a whole new level of hideous and cringe-worthy. It was cropped with cut out holes down the side and.. well, I'm not even going to go into detail because I'd rather forget about it to be honest. Perhaps this is why it's taken me eleven years (no joke - It's been eleven years!) to venture into the world of one shouldered pieces again? I'm not entirely sure what drew me to this dress in the first place. Binding cocktail dresses aren't exactly my cup of tea and I think one shoulder pieces can just look weird most of the time. But I suppose maybe that's why I liked it? I love how satisfied you feel when you wear something people don't expect of you, or even something you don't expect of yourself. Plus it helps if it's a stunning piece by Brian Lichtenberg which has been doing the celeb rounds and was seen on Rosie Huntington Whitley in Transformers. Perfect for the Louis Vuitton party I went to last week. My fear of one shouldered glitter pieces has now been cured. Thanks Brian.
