Black Dress Hardwood Mesh Illusion Faux Leather Front
This post is all about two outstanding dresses. The Hardwood style above is probably my personal favourite, a little edgier with a faux leather front and mesh panels, while the Moonlight dress has a more romantic shape and lashing of intricate black lace.

Both styles are available to purchase in the UK via Bloomingdales, and each costs between £150 and £200. I must admit, Bailey 44 is a new line to me, but one that I will be keeping an eye on in the future if these dresses are any indication of what's to come. If this is all new to you as well then see below for a bit more about the company:
Founded in 2006, Bailey 44 is a women's contemporary clothing line designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, California. Our clothing is made for the woman who is agelessly sexy, effortlessly cool, and who works at balancing an active, busy life.((SOURCE))
Our designs are inspired by fabrics that feel luxurious against the skin and move with the body. Soft jersey knits, pontes, stretch silks and eco leathers are made into pieces that are meticulously tried on and adjusted to ensure a precision fit. With well-versed imaginations and a keen eye for the zeitgeist, our design team turns sleek, simple silhouettes into modern looks for the polished downtown-chic woman.
Bailey44 can be found in exclusive department stores and specialty boutiques in North America and Europe, including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale's, Intermix, and ShopBop.com.
I have to say I would pick totally different footwear than the ones used in the promo shots, and funnily enough I straight away wanted to wear the same shoes with both dresses. The style? Classic 'Abel' in lipstick red patent by Jimmy Choo. Statement yet sleek, Jimmy Choo's patent red pumps will work from dusk until dawn, and with a myriad of different styles.

Are you a fan of Bailey 44? Did everyone else know about this gorgeous range and it's just me that's apparently been hiding under a rock?
