The lovely Gem Fatale is one of my very favourite bloggers. Her kooky, girly style, her charity shop finds and fabulous Tuesday Tips (seriously – do you know how to stop your fringe going gappy? Gem does!) make her the perfect inspiration for today’s As Inspired By… post. I’m a particular fan of Gem’s socks with brogues combos, so decided to give them a go.
very.co.uk dress, Primark brogues, belt and brooch, name necklace
The lovely folk at very.co.uk sent me this adorable polka dot dress, which I teamed with cute white ankle socks, my trusty brogues and some kitsch accessories.
Do you think I captured Gem’s style or does the look need some work? What do you think of the shoes and socks combo?
ohhhh i never thought of wearing that heart brooch like that! def gonna have to try that soon! love the dress too, it reallly compliments the whole Gem look! the socks and shoes look really cool too (:
Socks and shoes is an awesome look, I do it all the time and LOVE it!! The whole outfit is great, I love Gem’s style and I think you captured it well. Such a pretty dress too x
Loving this outfit. Socks and shoes is a great look.
love that dress.. i love my brogues they instantly make an outfit look a little bit cool dont they..
Adorable! I’ve never been brave enough to try the whole ankle socks/brogues thing as I fear it’d make my chunky little sausages legs look even chunkier!
Very cute dress, it’s a lovely colour. I don’t own a pair of brogues but I’d dearly love to! I think your outfit is great
Ooh, I definitely think you captured Gem’s style – it looks great on her and you too! I really like what you’ve been doing with your hair recently too – I have a tendancy to just not bother now my hair is really shirt but you’ve definitely inspired me to experiment with clips and things!
Love this outfit on you loving the brouges and socks too fab combination. Now I am off to find out how you stop your fringe going gappy as mine always does that xoxo
Hasn’t Gem got fab style? I am way too much of a unfashionable wuss to attempt to copy her style but you’ve done it perfectly here! Love that cute belt 🙂 Have you done your hair a bit differently as well? Looks lovely.
So lovely!! This outfit is just so pretty. 🙂
The socks & shoes look = spot on! I have loved this style for ages, but I have not yet done it myself. I have been living in tights and leggings for a long time and I rarely bare my legs to the world. I must start because I love my little cute dresses and socks with brogues would look devine!
I love Gem’s style. SDhe does look great all the time and she’s so nice. You did a great job capturing her style. The brogues/socks combination is a good one.
It’s cute! I think you’re working it really well.
Also the little heart belt is so charming, and so you!
hi, just discovered your blog, love it:)
you did a wonderful job of capturing her look, it really suits you x
The socks and shoes look so cute.
Such a cute outfit, I love that dress on you 🙂 x
Socks and brogues are awesome! This outfit is the cutest. Corinne x
I love Gem! She’s awesome!
& I love this outfit.
My two favourite blogger girls styles unite :p haha! I love that look – but I dont feel like I could ever pull it off. You look cuuuuute 🙂 xx
this is awesome! you pulled it off brilliantly 🙂
love what you did with the brooch – genius!
Lovely dress – I never tire of polka dots, especially blue and white polka dots! 🙂 Those shoes are very on trend too. I must get myself a pair.
To be honest I’ve never worn socks and brogues but I think I may have to start! So cute on you!
I’m inspired. I love socks and brogues. I’ve seen them lots this summer on other girls. I think it’s about time I try it. You look gorgeous! xx
Just discovered your blog.
I am loving it and also loving the socks with brogues combo!!
Yep, that’s a Gem look right there!
So cute. Love the dress and the heart brooch.
Love how cute this looks, very Gem.
Great way to wear your brooch also!
I think you captured her look perfectly!
I love what you’ve done with the brooch. So unique! I love Gem’s style, but I personally do not think I could pull off the sock and brogues look. I actually have these brouges, but I never know how to wear them!

Cute cute, cutey cute cute!
I love this look and it really suits you! I’ve been meaning to check out Very, but haven’t gotten round to it. That dress is lovely though, so I’ll have to get onto the site ASAP! xxx
Gorgeous dress, It’s very gem’s style! You’ve pulled it off wonderfully! 🙂 xx
This dress is o so lovely, the polka dots are simply adorable.
And Gems style is wonderful. I think this As Inspired By is by far my favourite xx
I normally steer clear of the shop of doom as no matter how many people I see looking good in stuff from Primark, I’ve never had any success with it. I love anything heart-shaped though and am SO BROKE so maybe it is time to give it another go.
Very pretty outfit, i adore socks and shoes!
Very cute outfit, definately Gem’s style!
Love the outfit! I love the shoes aswell. and there primark so thats a bonus!!
I love this look, you look great! Fab dress!
