When I am wearing this dress and clutch, I feel like a superhero!  The striking dress is from local designer Nini of Nini’s Style.  She is a fashion extraordinaire – stylist, designer, and blogger.  She hand selects the material and has her talented seamstress create her vision.  All the seams are so well constructed and the lines are superb.  I love it!  {This is not a compensated post.  I just really love her work!}

clutch | Miu Miu (NM Last Call) {similar and cute and cuter}
earrings | Anna Sheffield for Target {similar and here}
sunglasses | Prada {here and here}
tights | H&M {similar}
booties | Chanel {similar and here}

The asymmetrical hem is so unique.  And I love the texture of the material… tweed!  The sleeves have a zipper closure {like my Alexander McQueen dress last seen here and here}.  I can wait to wear it with pants next time!
Don’t you love finding a local designer or shop that you can support!

{I will out of town until after Christmas.  Hope to catch up with everyone else soon.  Enjoy this festive time!}

    The shape, the material, the EVERYTHING! Its flawless. She is very talented!

    I really love the head to toe look of this outfit. After you said superhero, the clutch immediately made me think of a comic strip with the words like “KAPOW” in starburst lol.

    I wish you and your family a very joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

  10. The first thing I recognized Sam were the Prada glasses. You rock them girl! Love your cape and that bag is awesome. Your title makes me think of Wonder Woman! LOL Hope things are getting better. Still praying for your uncle.

  11. Phhoooar! Sam, the Prada sunnies ROCK! Yes, I totally agree with you. I support my local Kiwi designer (well, 1 in particular). I tend to buy quite a bit of her designs whenever I’m back in NZ.

  12. Katrina says:

    Sam, I absolutely love you in this dress and I absolutely agree with you about NINI, she is so talented and beautiful. You do the dress great justice!! :)

  13. SAM, Can I tell you how amazingly HOT this dress is and how fabulous you look in it. This is such a hot unique piece. I LOVE it. You styled it perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing Nini. Her style is off the charts. I agree with you, its important to support up and coming talents in the Fashion Industry.

  14. Wow, wow, and more wow ;) I love nini – she is beautiful and looks great in everything. I have been eyeing lots of her creation but sadly I don’t think it would look good on me as I am so short BUT on you! GAH – you look like you belong in a magazine ;)

    I hope you are having a good time on your trip. Going back to re-read some of your old posts since I have been MIA but wanted to wish you Happy Holidays before I forget ;)
